The Honda CR-V has long been among the top-rated compact crossovers for safety, and for 2014 it remains so--although there's at least one score that keeps it from being at the top in all respects.

The CR-V has earned top 'good' scores in all tests from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and is a Top Safety Pick. But it hasn't earned the IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus accolade, as its 'marginal' score in the new small-overlap frontal test is an indication that there's definitely some room for improvement. Honda achieved top results in that test with its Civic, so we think it's only time before the CR-V sees some structural changes for better protection.

In National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) testing, the CR-V has earned five-star results overall, as well as in frontal and side impact tests.

Side-curtain airbags, front side airbags, and electronic stability are standard on the entire lineup, along with wide-angle side mirrors. And to help you see obstacles (or children, there's an available Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, offering three different views.

Conclusion

The 2014 Honda CR-V gets mostly top ratings from both major U.S. safety agencies, but the IIHS small overlap test leaves room for improvement.

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.
