The 2017 Honda CR-V has been awarded a Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
The redesigned model is clearly upholding its nameplate’s tradition by nabbing good ratings on all crash tests while recording superior rating for its optional front crash prevention system.
Meanwhile, the LED headlights that come with the CR-V’s Touring trim garnered an acceptable rating and the halogen lights on the other trims were rated marginal.
The front crash prevention system turned out to be a real boon for the CR-V as it helped the model avoid collisions in the 12- and 24-mph track tests. Aside that, the system also employed a forward collision warning system that fits the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration criteria.
For those unaware, a vehicle must gain good ratings in the small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests to earn a 2017 Top Safety Pick+ award.
It also needs to have a front crash prevention system that manages an advanced or superior rating whereas the headlights must be rated acceptable or good.
Well, it looks like the 2017 Honda CR-V has made the Civic proud as the latter also scored top safety points for IIHS.
