Redesigned Honda CR-V Earns Top Safety Award from Insurance Institute for Highway Safety
to earn the Top Safety Pick+ award, a vehicle must have good ratings in all five IIHS Crast Tests
The redesigned 2017 Honda CR-V has earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's (IIHS) 2017 Top Safety Pick+ award.
Like the previous generation of the small SUV, the 2017 CR-V earns across-the-board good crashworthiness ratings. It is available with an optional front crash prevention system that earns a superior rating and acceptable-rated headlights.
When equipped with front crash prevention, the 2017 CR-V avoided collisions in the Institute's 12 mph and 25 mph track tests. The system also has a forward collision warning system that meets National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) criteria.
The LED headlights that come with the CR-V's Touring trim earn an acceptable rating. The halogen lights on the model's other trim levels are rated marginal.
To earn the 2017 Top Safety Pick+ award, a vehicle must have good ratings in the IIHS' small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraint tests. A Top Safety Pick+ recipient must also have an available front crash prevention system with an advanced or superior rating and headlights that earn an acceptable or good rating.
