10 Things You Should Know About the 2011 Honda CR-V
#8. Safety is Standard Equipment
Don't let its compact size fool you - the Honda CR-V is as safe as they come. The crossover has been loaded with standard safety features such as dual-stage front airbags, side-airbags for those seated in the first two positions and a side-curtain airbag system that is tied in directly with a rollover detection sensor. Anti-lock brakes and Honda's Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with Traction Control system are also on hand the help ensure that the CR-V stays pointed in the right direction no matter how hairy conditions might get out on the road. Not only does VSA with Traction Control prevent wheel spin, but it can also brake each individual wheel in order to prevent oversteer or understeer during abrupt maneuvering.
