In our brief drive at Jaipur in Honda’s all-new CR-V, about which you can read more about here, we were able to experience the new model’s superior noise insulation. We later also got to know about the jobs Honda carried out to pull this off. So, here goes.
1. Improved engine quietness during acceleration
Honda revealed that its engineers used a liquid seal for the transmission mount. Additionally, they stuck to the liquid seal for the side mounts, and also went for an optimal layout of the acoustic insulator for better results. We were even told that there’s an added hood-hinge pad for the diesel model.
2. Reduced wind noise
To bring down the wind noise, Honda adopted a flat-design wiper to cut down on unnecessary decibels. They also embraced cut-line seals too, which are basically specifically designed rubber-beadings (as we know it) that’re usually found around the windscreen, doors, sunroof etc.
3. Improved road noise isolation
To improve the cabin experience by cutting off road noises to an extent, Honda has made use of a rear floating sub-frame. In addition to that, they have also used the services of a liquid seal compliance bush on the suspension to bring noises down.
