Important: Frontal crash test ratings should be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.

The Honda CR-V was redesigned for the 2002 model year.

Injury measures

Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity. Head acceleration from the B-pillar hit was low.

Restraints and dummy kinematics

Dummy movement was well controlled. During rebound, the dummy's head hit the B-pillar.

Side crash test ratings can be compared across vehicle categories.

The Honda CR-V was redesigned for the 2002 model year. Front and rear head curtain airbags and front seat-mounted torso airbags became standard beginning with 2005 models.

When side airbags are optional, as in this vehicle when it was tested, the Institute conducts the test without this option. If a manufacturer offering optional side airbags requests the Institute to conduct an additional test of a vehicle with this option and agrees to reimburse the cost of the vehicle, a second test is conducted. Honda did not request such a test.

Injury measures

Driver — Measures taken from the dummy indicate that rib fractures and/or internal organ injuries as well as serious neck injuries would be possible in a crash of this severity. In addition, loading to the shoulder was excessive.

Passenger — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

Head protection

Driver — The dummy's head was hit by the window sill of the driver door. This impact did not produce high injury measures, but the head protection is inadequate.

Passenger — The dummy's head was hit by the pillar behind the rear passenger door. This pillar is required by federal standard to provide some protection for occupants' heads.
