In the IIHS’ front crash prevention test, the 2017 CR-V earned the highest score of superior after the front crash prevention system helped it avoid collisions in the Institute's 20- and 40-km/h track tests. It also scored good ratings on all crashworthiness tests. As for the latest test that evaluates the effectiveness of a vehicle’s headlights, the 2017 Honda CR-V received an acceptable rating with the optional LED headlights, while the standard halogen headlights only received a marginal rating.
The 2017 Honda CR-V has won the award with the help of the large host of active safety and driver assistance features that come on all but the base LX trim. Some of the most notable features are forward collision warning, road departure mitigation, automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control.
