The 2017 Honda CR-V is set for its Malaysian introduction sometime next month, and the arrival of the fifth-gen SUV will also see Honda Sensing making its local debut. A few elements from the suite of safety technologies was showcased to the motoring press at a special preview event last week.

Aimed at providing driver- or safety-related assistance functions, Honda Sensing groups six items under its umbrella, working with the help of a monocular camera mounted behind the windscreen and a millimetre wave radar – with an effective range of about 100 metres – located on the front grille.

Our video takes a quick look at the components available in the mix, namely Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM). Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), the last being combined with a Low Speed Follow (LSF) function.

The Sensing suite will be available on the range-topping 1.5L VTEC Turbo Premium 2WD variant, which also comes with Lanewatch. The CR-V will also go on sale here in regular 1.5L VTEC Turbo AWD and a 1.5L VTEC Turbo 2WD forms as well as in a solitary normally-aspirated 2.0L i-VTEC 2WD guise.
