The CR-V's occupant compartment provides a stable safety volume for its occupants. The air bags worked satisfactorily but placed a reasonably high load on the driver's chest. The restraint system is also criticised for the driver's head bottoming out on the steering wheel. A good side impact performance was marred by the struck rear door latch partially opening. The child restraints were held well by the ISOFIX mounts and top tethers, but the 18 month old would have been much better in a rear facing restraint. The pedestrian protection was well engineered making the CR-V clearly the best vehicle tested so far in our new pedestrian tests.
