Protect your Family in a Honda CRV

Amber Sell
February 23, 2006

There are about 3 million minor injuries, 2 million permanent injuries, and almost 40,000 deaths in the United States each year caused by car-related accidents. Car accidents are one of the most common sources of injury. Even the most minor fender-benders can cause severe injury and permanent disability, not to mention insurance rate hikes and other expensive inconveniences. Severe auto accidents resulting in critical injuries and death are tragedies for everyone involved. Nothing is more devastating and unexpected then a car accident.

Despite your greatest efforts to drive cautiously and safe, you are always at the mercy of other drivers as soon as you pull out of the driveway. For this reason it is important that your vehicle provides full protection, from the inside and out. It is evident that the Honda CRV is built with your family’s safety in mind. With its solid steel exterior and exceptional driving capabilities, you can stop worrying about your own safety and start concentrating on other drivers on the road.

Solid Exterior Build
The Honda CRV’s sturdy framework is designed to provide greater safety in collisions with larger vehicles because of its unbeatable strength and durability. The frame is built with high-tensile steel and uses extensive cross-bracing and stiffening members in key areas of its frame. This build will help to absorb and disperse collision energy over a larger area. The Honda CRV is also designed to withstand high levels of resistance in key areas for further protection.

  • Side-Impact Door Beams. The dual side-impact door beams provide protection to the passengers during a side impact. They are made of high-tensile steel and absorb the energy of the impact.
  • Front & Rear Crash Zones.The front and rear crash zones provide all passengers with further protection during front and rear collisions. They, too, are made of high-tensile steel which will absorb the impact.

    In addition to providing solid protection, the steel framework also reduces vibration and the noise level, leaving you with a smoother and more comfortable ride during all your road trips.

    Driving Capabilities
    Nothing is scarier for a driver than suddenly loosing control of the vehicle due to elements on the road. With these key driving features, also found in the Honda Odyssey, you no longer have to worry about driving in the rain or snow.

  • Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS).The anti-lock braking system (ABS) is used in the Honda CRV to give the driver greater steering control of the vehicle. The ABS uses a special modulator to pulse the brakes, preventing the wheels from locking up. This feature helps the driver maintain steering control when braking hard. The Electronic Brake Distribution system (EBD) also enhances this feature by balancing both the front and rear braking forces.
  • Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA).The Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) is a sophisticated safety device that aids the driver in retaining control of the vehicle if any amount of side slippage is detected. This system controls sudden changes in the vehicles behavior, allowing the driver time to take control of the situation. For instance, when the driver is driving around corner or has to make a sudden maneuver, the VSA system will automatically engage if detects any loss of traction and stabilize the vehicle.

    It’s impossible to control other drivers on the road, but choosing a sturdy and dependable vehicle for your family is possible and extremely important for their safety. It’s up to you to take the proper steps that will lessen the consequences and seriousness of car accidents, should they occur. It’s always easier to prevent than to repair.
