2011 Honda CR-V Safety

Safety

Safety features are a priority in a family-friendly vehicle like the CR-V, and it has all the features that are now expected, including electronic stability control, anti-lock braking, front side airbags, and side curtain airbags as standard.

But the Honda CR-V is a safety superstar—quite possibly the safest vehicle in its class—because of its excellent "good" ratings—the best—from the IIHS. The CR-V has also been an IIHS Top Safety Pick.

The 2011 Honda CR-V is a high-achiever for safety, with all the safety features you'd expect in this class plus top crash-test ratings.

We're still waiting to see if the CR-V can maintain its top showing in federal crash tests as well; while it achieved five-star results in former tests, the NHTSA ratings system has been toughened for 2011, with higher thresholds for top ratings as well as a new side pole test.
