Safety short­fall

Wheels (Australia) - - First Drives -

Au­ton­o­mous emer­gency brak­ing is fast be­com­ing a must-have piece of safety gear in the medium SUV seg­ment, but Honda only equips the $ 44,290 CR-V VTI-LX flag­ship with the po­ten­tially life-sav­ing tech. Why? AEB is em­bed­ded into a suite of elec­tronic driver aids called ‘Honda Sens­ing’ – it’s a pack­age deal, and one that would add sig­nif­i­cant cost to lower-grade mod­els. Honda is work­ing on mak­ing Honda Sens­ing stan­dard across the range, but right now AEB is only for top-end buy­ers.
