1. Honda CR-V

The Honda CR-V scored “good” in all areas, and a “superior” in the front crash prevention test, according to the IIHS. The optional collision mitigation brake system reduced impact speed by 21 mph in the 25 mph test, and completely avoided a collision in the 12 mph test. The child seat LATCH system was given a “marginal” rating. This score was given due to the lower anchors being too deep in the seat, the anchor being too hard to find in location 2, and other hardware being confused for the anchor. The roof withstood 5.08 times its own weight before crushing 5 inches, earning it a “good” rating. In the small overlap front test, the Honda CR-V scored “good” in all areas except injury measurements for the lower leg/foot. Injury measurements on the dummy indicated that an injury to the lower left leg would be possible in a crash, while risk of injury to other body regions was low.
