In the dark if you use a flashlight directed to the dashboard, you can see all the indicators available like VSA, low fuel indicator, etc. Looking at the upper right side I saw an indicator called CBMS. So I did some research and found out that is stand for "Collision Mitigation Braking System". The following link is from UK and shows some of the advanced safety features you can have on a CRV. In fact they are showing 5 safety features and we got only one of them VSA. It would be nice if it was available here. Would definitely prevent a lot of car's accident I guess.

All those things are available in the Acura models. If you put all those features in the CR-V, no one might buy the Acura RDX lol. Acura is American Honda's luxury brand and Honda is the "economic" brand. They leave things out of Honda models on purpose to distinguish between the brands. Why do you think all Acuras can bring HIDs standard, have remote start, Navigation with real time traffic and weather updates, rain sensing wipers, multi-angle parking, 300 hp attached to a 6 speed paddle shifters and all those things we want in the CT? Cause then no one would look at the ZDX LOL...

I hear you Pedro. But these features are available on a simple CRV in UK. Does it mean there is no Acura in UK? Which will explain why these are available on CRV. Anyhow, I fully understand marketing decision and how these are bundle and as you pointed out having these on CTs this will be more difficult to sell Acura version. My point is more related to safety. With all those accidents, I believe this should not be an option, these should be standard right away on all models. In regard with distinction between Acura and Honda, they could focus more on power engine delivery (as it is right now), tons of features that are not safety related. This represents my point of view only... will see...

Yea Acura is purely here in the US. But I get your POV and I wish it were different too. I know that all cars starting with model year 2010 and up from all auto manufacturers require by law to have some version of the VSA we have on the CT. I'm sure soon all these things that are "cool safety features" will become standards by law.
