Honda CR-V Receives Highest Overall Score for Collision Safety
Dec.18, 2015—The 2016 Honda CR-V received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). The CR-V previously earned a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
"Consumers have made the CR-V America's best-selling SUV for good reason, and this top government safety rating just adds one more appealing and class-leading attribute," said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division. "Honda is committed to offering vehicles that deliver advanced safety, fun-to-drive performance and connectivity, with top fuel economy ratings. CR-V is that kind of vehicle."
By receiving the 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the NHTSA, the 2016 CR-V has also met the requirements of the agency’s three recommended technologies: RVS-Rear Video System (back-up camera), FCW Forward Collision Warning and LDW Lane Departure Warning.
