When tested by independent experts Euro NCAP, the Honda CR-V scored five stars, performing particularly well in terms of adult occupant protection.

The Honda CR-V safety kit list features stability control and traction control, trailer stability assist, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control and collision mitigation braking – a system that applies the brakes if it thinks an accident is imminent.

There’s also a pedestrian collision mitigation system that is designed to soften the impact in the event of a collision with a pedestrian.

The CR-V also offers dual-stage front, side and curtain airbags.
