Adult occupant

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings showed good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Honda showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. In the side barrier impact, which represents the car being struck from the side by another vehicle, the CR-V scored maximum points with good protection of all body regions. In the more severe side pole test, protection of the chest and abdomen was adequate and that of the head and pelvis was good. The front seats and head restraints provided good protection against whiplash injury in the event of a rear-end collision.

Child occupant

The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. However, the instructions for changing the airbag status were not permanently attached and the system was not rewarded. The dangers of using a rearward-facing restraint in that seating position without disabling the airbag were clearly indicated in the vehicle. The CR-V could accommodate the child restraint categories for which it is designed. However, care should be taken when installing a number of the restraints to make sure they are correctly installed. The vehicle lost points because installation was not straightforward for some restraints.


The bumper scored maximum points for the protection it offered to pedestrians' legs. The protection provided to the head of a struck pedestrian was predominantly good or adequate.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is standard equipment on the CR-V and met Euro NCAP's test requirements. A seatbelt reminder is standard for the front and rear seats. A driver-set speed limitation device is available as an option. However, it is not expected to be sold in sufficient numbers to qualify for assessment by Euro NCAP.
