New Honda CRV receives 5-star Euro NCAP Overall Safety Rating

Honda's new CRV has been rated one of Europe's safest cars, according to new independent crash testing results from Euro NCAP, receiving the maximum 5-star rating.

Focusing on the vehicle's overall safety performance, the rating scheme gives consumers an easy to understand single score. The system considers occupant protection, child protection, pedestrian protection and the availability of driver aids.

Since the introduction of Euro NCAP's current rating scheme (February 2009) all Honda models tested have achieved 5 stars - Accord Euro, Insight, Jazz, CRZ, Euro Civic and most recently the new CRV.

This 5 star Euro NCAP rating adds to CRV's impressive global safety record, with the car receiving 5 stars in the ANCAP, JNCAP and NHTSA crash tests since 2012.

Honda is committed to overall vehicle safety and the new CRV's top safety rating reflects this. This commitment is embodied by the term 'Safety for Everyone'; safety for drivers, but also safety for passengers, pedestrians and occupants of all vehicles.

Honda's car-to-car crash test facility at the Tochigi R&D plant analyses impacts between models of different sizes and weights and develops solutions to mitigate injuries for both passengers and pedestrians. Honda goes above and beyond the requirements of standard testing with features such as ACE (Advanced Compatibility Engineering) and G-Con (G-Force Control) and the Helping Hand given by the Sport NT's ADAS technology (Advanced Driver Assistance System). Honda drivers can rest assured that their new Honda is among the safest cars on the road.

Pricing starts at $37,900 for the 2WD S manual, $39,900 for the 2WD S auto, $46,600 for the N, $51,700 for the Sport N and $57,500 for the Sport NT.
