Driver restraints and dummy kinematics

Action shot taken during the frontal offset crash test.

The dummy's position in relation to the steering wheel and instrument panel after the crash test indicates that the driver's survival space was maintained well.

Intrusion into the driver's space was minimal, and all leg and foot measures indicated low risk of injury.

Smeared greasepaint indicates where the dummy's knees and shins hit the knee bolster and steering column.

Side

Rating applies to 2005-06 models

Tested vehicle: 2005 Honda CR-V LX 4-door 4wd with standard front and rear head curtain airbags and standard front seat-mounted torso airbags

The Honda CR-V was redesigned for the 2002 model year. Front and rear side head curtain airbags and front seat-mounted side torso airbags became standard beginning with 2005 models, and the B-pillar was strengthened, also beginning with 2005 models. (In 2002-04 models, only front seat-mounted torso airbags were optional and side curtain airbags were not available.)

View of the vehicle after the crash with doors removed, showing the side airbags and damage to the occupant compartment.

Action shot taken during the side impact crash test showing the driver dummy's head was protected from being hit by hard structures by the side curtain airbag.

Smeared greasepaint shows where the rear passenger dummy's head was protected by the side airbag.
