The 2013 Honda CR-V last year received a re-engineered body structure with greater rigidity and strength, and the investment has paid off in appeal to safety-conscious families. As such, the CR-V has the best crash-test ratings in its class, and ranks as one of the best safety-minded picks on the market.
In National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the CR-V has earned five-star results overall, as well as in frontal and side impact testing. It's also earned top 'good' scores in all tests from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and is a Top Safety Pick.
All CR-V models include side-curtain airbags, front side airbags, and electronic stability, along with wide-angle side mirrors. A Multi-Angle Rearview Camera is available and offers three different views (wide, normal, and top) to help you see obstacles (or children).
