As one of the most critical components of your new CR-V, the braking system needs to perform in such a way that whether you are gradually braking or forced to braking that you are always in control. In these situations, to assist you is Honda's Anti-lock Braking System, which is designed to prevent wheel lock-up. If you apply your brakes in an emergency, they may lock up, and you will lose control. However, by pulsating the brakes, the system helps you come to a stop safely. Electronic Brake-force Distribution also plays an important role by optimizing braking power based on the amount of weight in the vehicle. Lastly, Brake Assist is designed to apply maximum braking power if it senses an emergency braking situation.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System
There are many reasons why you may lose pressure in your tires; a nail, you hit a curb, or the vehicle has been sitting for a long time. In the past, you could only tell your tire pressure was low by a visual inspection or testing it with a pressure gauge. With the implementation of the Tire Pressure Monitoring System, you are notified whenever tire pressure in any wheel is reduced. This is important as low tire pressure can have a negative impact on control, braking, acceleration, and steering.
Vehicle Stability Assist
As winter approaches, vehicle stability has never been more critical. When weather conditions are not ideal, your vehicle may encounter two situations: either understeer or oversteer. Both result in a loss of control and thus need to be avoided. That's where Vehicle stability assist comes in; it helps to prevent both from occurring. And Traction Control aids in limiting wheel spin when the vehicle is accelerating.
Hill Start Assist
If you've ever been in a situation where you are on a hill, and the vehicle behind you decides to stop close to your real bumper, then you're not the only one. This situation can make you nervous as your vehicle may rollback. To help avoid this, Hill Start Assist will hold your brake temporarily and keep your vehicle stationary. If you have any questions regarding these technologies please don't hesitate to contact us.
