2016 Honda CR-V2016 Honda CR-V Earns Top NHTSA Safety Score

On the heels of earning a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS), the 2016 Honda CR-V has now received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) New Car Assessment Program (NCAP).

This designation is earned by offering cutting edge safety, both in body structure and driver assistive/collision prevention technologies. The innovative Honda Sensing™ suite made its Honda debut in the 2015 CR-V, and has continued to get attention from safety agencies well into the 2016 model year. This pioneering technology is comprised of Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) to keep the driver focused and deploy evasive maneuvers or autonomous braking if needed.

Combined with the frontal-crash absorbing ACE™ body-structure and a bunch of safety features, the 2016 Honda CR-V definitely rises to one of the top choices in the SUV market. Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control, Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), Multi-Angle Rearview Camera along with SmartVent® Front Side Airbags and Side Curtain Airbags with Rollover Sensor come standard on all 2016 Honda CR-V trim levels.

“Consumers have made the CR-V America’s best-selling SUV for good reason, and this top government safety rating just adds one more appealing and class-leading attribute,….Honda is committed to offering vehicles that deliver advanced safety, fun-to-drive performance and connectivity, with top fuel economy ratings. CR-V is that kind of vehicle.” – Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division.

Did I mention that the CR-V is also fuel efficient, stylish, comfortable and just plain fun? That doesn’t hurt either. For more information on Honda safety, or to test drive the 2016 CR-V, please feel free to contact us via our website or give us a call at (877) 621-4216.
