The 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid has joined the rest of the CR-V lineup in earning a Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
When equipped with specific headlights, the 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid receives a Top Safety Pick rating giving Honda a total of six models earning a Top Safety Pick or better.
For the 2020 model year, all CR-V models provide Honda Sensing as standard equipment on all trim levels. Some of the included driver-assistive technologies include:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™
- Pedestrian Detection
- Forward Collision Warning
- Road Departure Mitigation
- Lane Departure Warning
- Lane Keeping Assist System
- Adaptive Cruise Control
All Honda vehicles also benefit from Honda’s proprietary Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ body structure, designed to protect occupants in a wide variety of frontal collisions, along with advanced supplemental restraint systems.
To earn the 2020 TSP award, a vehicle must earn “GOOD” crashworthiness ratings in all test modes, including in the challenging passenger-side small overlap test. A top-rated vehicle must also offer front crash prevention that earns an “ADVANCED” or “SUPERIOR” rating in both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian testing, as well as “GOOD” or “ACCEPTABLE” ratings for available headlights.
TSP+ rated vehicles must achieve the same “GOOD” or “ACCEPTABLE” rating for their standard headlights. Additional Honda models are expected to receive top safety ratings from the IIHS in 2020 as the Institute completes further testing.
Every Honda model that has been fully evaluated in the NHTSA’s 2020 model year NCAP testing, including the CR-V Hybrid, has received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score*.
*Government 5-Star Safety Ratings are part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA’s) New Car Assessment Program (www.SaferCar.gov). Not yet fully evaluated for the 2020 model year are the Clarity series and Civic Type R.
