On Safety

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).

The 2008 Honda CR-V is among the safest vehicles in its class.

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."

Kelley Blue Book notes "visibility is good in all directions, even to the rear." Although backup cameras are available only for the top-of-the-line trim, the EX-L, Edmunds reports that Honda can install parking sensors on lower-line models.
