Whatever other shortcomings the 2008 Honda CR-V has, there's virtually no room for criticism when it comes to safety. The Honda CR-V gets a perfect 10 out of 10 for keeping its occupants safe and secure during travel and in case of an accident.

The Honda 2008 CR-V scores top marks (five out of five) in front- and side-impact crash tests by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and four out of five on rollover resistance tests. The vehicle receives the highest rating ("good") from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

Edmunds reports, "All major safety features are standard on the 2008 Honda CR-V, including antilock disc brakes, stability control, front-seat side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags."

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
