Along with reliable performance, Lorena drivers need an SUV that can keep them safe no matter where they go. That’s why the 2020 Honda CR-V safety ratings indicate that this vehicle is capable of having your back no matter if you’re around town or away from home. Greg May Honda is here to provide a closer look at the new CR-V safety ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to see how this SUV was built to keep you safe.

Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Ratings

When the Honda CR-V was assessed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)*, it was graded across several categories, such as front and side Crashworthiness, Crash Avoidance and Mitigation, Roof Strength, Head and Seat Restraint, Headlight Quality, and Child Seat Anchor Strength. Here are the Honda CR-V safety ratings from the IIHS:

Crashworthiness: 

  • Small overlap front, driver and passenger side: Good*
  • Moderate overlap front: Good*
  • Side: Good*
  • Roof strength: Good*
  • Head restraints and seats: Good*

Crash Avoidance & Mitigation: 

  • Front crash prevention: Superior with optional equipment (highest possible rating)*
  • Headlights: Acceptable*
  • Child seat anchors (LATCH) ease of use: Acceptable*

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Ratings

The Honda CR-V was also assessed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration** where it was put through a series of crash tests. It was rated on a 5-star scale in the four main categories below:

  • Overall Rating: 5 Stars**
  • Frontal Crash: 5 Stars**
  • Side Crash: 5 Stars**
  • Rollover: 4 Stars**

Standard & Available Honda CR-V Safety Features
