|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.
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.
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.

How this test is conducted
Measures of occupant compartment intrusion on driver side
|B-pillar to longitudinal centerline of driver's seat (cm) |
Negative numbers indicate the amount by which the crush stopped short of the seat centerline.
