March 7, 2019
The 2019 Honda HR-V receives good rating in all six IIHS crashworthiness tests.

March 7, 2019—The 2019 Honda HR-V has earned a Top Safety Pick (TSP) rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), when equipped with optional front crash prevention and specific headlights.

It has earned a good rating in all six crashworthiness tests and a superior rating for its available collision mitigation braking system (CMBS). 

Refreshed for the 2019 model year, the 2019 HR-V received updates to its structure to improve frontal crash performance, as demonstrated in the IIHS' small and moderate front overlap tests.

In addition, Honda Sensing is now standard on EX and above trims, which, in addition to CMBS, includes forward collision warning; road departure mitigation incorporating lane departure warning; lane keeping assist system; and adaptive cruise control. On the new-for-2019 HR-V Touring trim, multi-element LED headlights earned an acceptable rating in the IIHS evaluation.
