Safety technology is important to car shoppers and automakers are working hard to make their cars safer for customers. Honda is launching a new campaign “Safety For Everyone” highlighting actual Honda customers who were involved in serious collisions but walked away without series injury. They credit the performance of the Honda vehicle with saving their lives. 

You will probably be seeing this new social media launch but what does it mean for customers buying the new 2020 Honda CR-V, Civic, Accord, Pilot, Odyssey, or Ridgeline? There is a saying, “Watch what they do, not what they say.” Let’s take a look at what the Japanese automaker is doing.

10 safety features are standard on 2020 Honda CR-V

For the 2020 model year, Honda is making Honda Sense, its safety and driver-assist technology standard on every 2020 Honda CR-V, Accord and Civic models. Honda Sense is a suite of five safety and driver-assistive technologies that includes a collision mitigation braking system with pedestrian sensing, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow and traffic sign recognition.

Also standard are five more safety features that include automatic high-beam headlights, a multi-angle rearview camera, and a driver attention monitor, while additional available driver-assistive features include blind spot information and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

What this will give customers is an extra level of safety when they are driving and could keep you from serious injury in the event of a crash. The IIHS rates all vehicles and gives consumers an idea of just how safe a vehicle is if you have a traffic accident.

Honda uses its next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure to keep occupants safe. Honda CR-V, Accord, Pilot, Odyssey, Passport, and Ridgeline all achieve a Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), including the highest available IIHS rating of "Good" in all crashworthiness tests.

The 2020 Honda CR-V is not safe because the Japanese automaker is saying it is on social media. It’s a safe SUV because they are putting an emphasis on safety and ramping up safety technology. It’s also important Honda Sense is now standard on many of its vehicles.

Good move by Honda to make these standard features. Nobody likes to see the safety tech, or even pieces of it ransomed to the only the higher trim packages, while the volume sellers, have no safety.

I bought a1987 Honda Accord LXI and had it for 16 years.What does that say? I'm looking forward to leasing the 2020 CRV Hybrid when it comes out.

I bought my Honda CR-V in 2015 and it's the best vehicle I've ever bought, I would love to get a Ridgeline eventually hopefully in the near future, I will never drive anything else but a Honda best vehicle in my opinion never had any issues at all.

My 2021 Honda CR-V: purchased February 1, 2021
#1 The AM on the radio gets allot of static, the dealership tested it and said that it meets Honda standards. They refused to fix it.
#2 The seat belts don't lock, fit. Both the dealership and Honda said that they can't do anything. I have tried 6 different seat belt extenders and none o them will fit. Honda will not give me the measurements so I can buy the correct ones. This car isn't safe at any speed!
