Editors at TheCarConnection.com can pull up lists of likes and dislikes about the 2009 Honda CR-V—but when it comes to safety, there's no getting around the fact that the CR-V has all its bases covered.
The 2009 CRV receives the highest rating ("good") from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The Honda 2009 CR-V scores top marks (five out of five stars) in front- and side-impact crash tests by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and four out of five on rollover resistance tests.
Edmunds reports, "All major safety features are standard on the 2009 Honda CR-V, including antilock disc brakes, stability control, front-seat side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags." ConsumerGuide also lists "traction control and an antiskid system."
MotherProof notes that in the 2009 Honda CR-V, "the seating position is high—not too high, but just high enough to offer a new perspective on the road ahead." This means that visibility is not much of a problem. Kelley Blue Book explains that "visibility is good in all directions, even to the rear." MotherProof also says "thanks to the rearview camera, I had a pretty good view of the road behind, as well. I liked it—a lot."
