MODERATE OVERLAP FRONT TEST
|Structure/safety cage||Injury measures||Restraints/dummy kinematics|
|Head/neck||Chest||Leg/foot, left||Leg/foot, right|
Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.
Good Acceptable Marginal Poor
The Honda CR-V was introduced in the 1997 model year.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was reasonably well controlled. Steering wheel movement contributed to the dummy's head bottoming out the airbag and hitting the steering wheel. During rebound from the airbag, the dummy moved toward the driver door, and its head hit the B-pillar.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the neck and chest indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity. Forces on the head occurred when the dummy's head hit the steering wheel through the airbag, indicating that injuries to the head would be possible. Forces on the left tibia and left knee indicate that injuries to the lower leg and knee would be likely. Head acceleration from the B-pillar hit was low.
Left to right:
- Action shot taken during the frontal offset crash test.
- The driver space was maintained reasonably well.
- White paint behind the dummy's head indicates where it hit the head restraint and B-pillar after rebounding from the airbag.
- Red and white paint on the knee bolster indicates where the dummy's knee and shin hit hard enough to cause injury in a real crash.
- Antilock brakes (except LX models)
