Moderate overlap front

Rating applies to 2011-16 models

Tested vehicle: 2011 Honda CR-Z 2-door

The Honda CR-Z was introduced in the 2011 model year. The CR-Z seats only two people; there is no rear seat.

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.

Smeared greasepaint indicates where the dummy's head contacted the side curtain airbag during rebound.

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

View of the vehicle and barrier just after the crash test.

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

Smeared greasepaint shows where the driver dummy's head was protected from being hit by hard structures by the side airbags.

Forces on the left femur were elevated as the door interior panel and armrest intruded into the driver dummy's space.
