2012 CR-Zs
In Your Area
Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure
ACE™ utilizes a network of connected structural elements to distribute crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle.
Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
The CR-Z's anti-lock braking system (ABS) uses a special modulator to pulse the brakes to help prevent wheel lockup. This helps the driver retain steering control during hard braking. The Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) system balances the front/rear braking forces during dynamic loading.
Front 3-Point Seat Belts with Automatic Tensioning System
Front 3-point seat belts with an automatic tensioning system ride across the lap and chest to help restrain occupants during sudden stops or impact.
Driver's and Passenger's Active Head Restraints
The driver's and passenger's active head restraints help reduce the likelihood of neck injury in a sufficient rear impact.
Dual-Stage, Multiple-Threshold Front Airbags (SRS)
The CR-Z is equipped with dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags (SRS). One or both of these airbags will be deployed only in the event of a sufficient frontal impact. If deployed, these airbags are capable of being inflated at different rates depending on crash severity, seat-belt usage and/or other factors. Frontal airbags are designed to supplement the seat belts to help reduce the likelihood of head and upper body injuries in frontal crashes.

Front Side Airbags with Passenger-Side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS)
In the event of a moderate-to-severe side impact, the side airbag inflates to help protect the driver's or front passenger's upper body. The Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS) utilizes sensors in the front passenger's seatback and is designed to help protect a child or a small-statured adult by deactivating the side airbag if the passenger leans into the airbag deployment path.

Side Curtain Airbags
To help reduce the likelihood of head and neck injuries in side collisions, all 2012 CR-Z models feature standard side curtain airbags. The side curtain airbag module is positioned along the side of the headliner. In the event of a sufficient side impact, this system will activate to help provide protection for the driver and passenger.

Daytime Running Lights (DRL)
The CR-Z enhances its visibility to others by incorporating Daytime Running Lights (DRL).
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
TPMS monitors the pressure in all four tires, and alerts the driver before pressure in any tire becomes significantly low[1].

[1] For optimal tire wear and performance, tire pressure should be checked regularly with a gauge. Do not rely solely on the monitor system. Please see your Honda dealer for details.
Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control
This sophisticated safety system aids the driver in retaining control of the vehicle if side slippage is detected during oversteer or understeer conditions. When the driver is cornering or must make a sudden maneuver and traction loss is detected, the system will engage to help restore the driver's intended course[1].

[1] VSA is not a substitute for safe driving. It cannot correct the vehicle's course in every situation or compensate for reckless driving. Control of the vehicle always remains with the driver.
