CR-V Earns Highest Score from NHTSA

Having already earned a Top Safety Pick+ designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the Honda CR-V recently received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score, the highest available, from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP).

The new CR-V features Honda's Advanced Compatibility Engineering frame work, which allows it to better absorb energy from frontal impacts. Additionally, it features several safety and driver assistance technologies such as, Honda LaneWatch, Vehicle Stability Assist, Lane Departure Warning (LDW), and Forward Collision Warning (FCW).

“Consumers have made the CR-V America’s best-selling SUV for good reason, and this top government safety rating just adds one more appealing and class-leading attribute,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division. “Honda is committed to offering vehicles that deliver advanced safety, fun-to-drive performance and connectivity, with top fuel economy ratings. CR-V is that kind of vehicle.”

By receiving the 5-Star Overall Rating Score, the CR-V also met requirements of the agency's three recommended technologies: a back-up camera system, and the above mentioned LDW and FCW.

With all that the CR-V has to offer, it's truly a safety standout in the SUV segment. So, if you're in the market for a new SUV, come visit Barber Honda and take the tested and proven CR-V from Honda for a spin. It would be our pleasure to serve you.
