Safety Ratings and Recognitions

The CR-V has been recognized as a Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. When equipped with Honda Sensing, it earns a superior rating for frontal crash prevention and an ‘A’ grade for headlights. The CR-V also earned top ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration* including:

  • 5-star Overall Front Crash Test
  • 5-Star Front Driver Side Crash Test
  • 5-Star Front Passenger Side Crash Test
  • 5-Stat Overall Side Crash Test

Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure

As a versatile crossover, the CR-V has a deep commitment to safety. And that commitment is demonstrated directly into the engineering of the CR-V’s body structure. Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) Body Structure utilizes a complex network of frame structures to absorb crash energy and distribute it away from the occupants sitting in the cabin. It also reduces the amount of force transferred to the other vehicle involved in the impact, keeping everyone on the road safer.
