- CR-V has achieved both an NCAP 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score and an IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating
The stylish and versatile 2016 Honda CR-V has received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score, the top score available in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). Earlier, the CR-V earned a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), making it a collision safety leader and standout choice in the SUV market.
"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." said Dave Gardner, senior vice president of operations, Honda Canada Inc." This top government safety rating adds one more appealing and class-leading attribute to the CR-V."
In receiving the 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from NHTSA, the 2016 CR-V has also met the requirements of the agency's three recommended technologies: RVS-Rear Video System (back-up camera), FCW Forward Collision Warning and LDW Lane Departure Warning.
The 2016 Honda CR-V utilizes the latest generation of Honda's Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure which helps make the CR-V highly effective at absorbing and dispersing the energy of a frontal collision crash.
The CR-V was the first Honda vehicle to offer the Honda Sensing™ suite of safety and driver assistive features that can take action to help avoid a collision or mitigate its severity. Honda Sensing™ is now available on four of Honda's most popular and top selling models – Civic, Accord, CR-V and Pilot. The Honda Sensing™ suite of technologies includes Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW).
Key Safety and Driver-Assistive Features:
In addition to the application of Honda's ACE™ body-structure, the 2016 CR-V features a host of standard active and passive safety features and offers many standard and available driver-assistive technologies, such as:
- SmartVent® Front Side Airbags
- Side Curtain Airbags with Rollover Sensor
- Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH)
- Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control
- Motion-Adaptive Electric Power Steering (EPS)
- Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
- Honda LaneWatch® (EX, EX-L, Touring)
- Hill Start Assist (HSA)
- Expanded View Driver's Mirror

Honda Safety Leadership
Based in part on advancements to Honda's Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, Honda is a leader in third-party crash test ratings within the industry. The company also is broadly applying advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies such as LaneWatch, Forward Collision Warning and Lane Departure Warning to its product lineup. Also, all Honda and Acura vehicles have applied a rearview camera as standard equipment since the 2016 model year.
