2012 Honda CR-V Safety

9.0
Safety

While the exterior appearance of the Honda CR-V hasn't changed all that much versus last year's model, the new 2012 model is significantly different underneath. Honda has re-engineered the body structure for greater rigidity, and strength--which will certainly help in its occupant protection.

Side-curtain airbags, front side airbags, and electronic stability control are of course included in all 2012 CR-V models. The CR-V's standard wide-angle side mirrors are also the first in any Honda vehicle, and the available Multi-Angle Rearview Camera offers three different views (wide, normal, and top) to help you see obstacles (or children).

The all-new 2012 Honda CR-V--like its predecessor--earns some of the best safety scores in its class.

The 2012 CR-V has been crash-tested by the federal government, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives it an overall score of five stars. It's also earned top 'good' scores across the board from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)--as well as the IIHS Top Safety Pick accolade.
