Honda adds crash avoidance bits to CR-V

Safety Accord: Honda’s Advanced Driver Assist System is now an option on all top-spec CR-V models.

Top-spec CR-V VTi-L adds active safety tech from new Accord for $3500 premium

24 Jun 2013

HONDA'S clever crash-avoidance technology, which debuted here on the new Accord last month, can now be optioned on the popular CR-V compact SUV.

The Advanced Driver Assist System (ADAS), which bundles in a host of high-end active safety technology, is now a $3500 option on the range-topping CR-V VTi-L.

However the same kit on the all-new Accord is only a $3000 option on mid-specification variants, and standard kit on the range-topping V6-engined Accord V6L.

ADAS features a system that can measure the distance from the car in front, and warn the driver if it thinks a collision is likely, applying the brakes and even pre-tensioning the seatbelts.

It adds a system that uses a windscreen-mounted camera to detect when the CR-V strays out of its lane, and steers it back.

Also included is adaptive cruise control, which will automatically keep a set distance from the vehicle in front at freeway speeds.

Honda has also added two new colours – a white and grey – to its palette.

Pricing for the CR-V VTi-L with ADAS starts from $45,790 before on-road costs, which is $3500 more than the standard price of the VTi-L without the safety technology package.

The shift in pricing also pushes the CR-V into similar all-wheel-drive soft-roader territory as the Ford Kuga Titanium petrol that retails from $44,740 and the top spec Mazda CX-5 Akera that sells from $45,770.

Honda’s recently remodelled CR-V has sold 5883 units in the first five months of 2013, making it the fourth best-selling compact SUV in Australia.

It trails the Mazda CX-5 with 8057 sales to the end of May, Toyota’s all-new RAV4 on 6049 sales and the Subaru Forester on 5897 sales.

Honda is slated to add a diesel version of the British-built CR-V early next year.
