How did the 2019 Honda CR-V do in the new IIHS Pedestrian Detection tests?

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is a U.S. institution dedicated to holding automotive manufacturers to a higher standard when it comes to safety. They are one of the companies that put new vehicles through crash testing to come up with scores that then tell you, the customer, just how safe the vehicles you’re interested in are. Very recently, the IIHS created some new pedestrian detection tests to accommodate the rising importance of safety technology that prevents collisions with pedestrians. The 2019 Honda CR-V was one of the first vehicles to be put through these new tests, so how did it do?

“IIHS’ pedestrian crash avoidance tests can be unnerving to watch, since they are set up to look like an impending collision with a pedestrian. The tests highlight the need to consider the safety of all road users when designing advanced safety systems like those included in Honda Sensing. We have sold nearly 1.8 million Honda vehicles equipped with Honda Sensing in the United States, underscoring our leadership and commitment to the widespread application of these important technologies.”

- Jay Joseph, Assistant Vice President of Product Planning, American Honda Motor Co., Inc.

Pedestrian Detection and Crash Prevention

Heading into these new tests, the CR-V had already earned a Superior rating in the Crash Avoidance and Mitigation tests when equipped with Honda Sensing. Now, these new tests are explicitly addressing the Collision Mitigation Braking System found in Honda Sensing equipped on the 2019 CR-V. Good news folks, CBMS earned a Superior rating here as well, passing the new tests with flying colors. If you think you might be interested in a 2019 Honda CR-V of your own, be sure to get in touch with us right here at Wheaton Honda.
