2013 Honda CR-V gets five-star rating from Euro NCAP

Article by Anita Panait, on June 26, 2013

Euro NCAP has awarded the top five-star rating to the UK-built Honda CR-V, making the vehicle one of the safest in Europe. The system rates a vehicle’s overall safety performance, providing consumers an easy-to-understand single score. Euro NCAP rates overall safety in four different aspects -- occupant protection, child protection, pedestrian protection and the availability of driver aids.

Since Euro NCAP implemented its current rating scheme in February 2009, all Honda models tested received 5 stars: Accord, Insight, Jazz, CR-Z, Civic and CR-V. The safety rating for the CR-V -- built at Honda's manufacturing site in Swindon, England -- reflects the carmaker's commitment to overall vehicle safety, which is embodied by the term "Safety for Everyone."

According to Honda, this term means crash protection not only for drivers and passengers, but also for occupants of other vehicles, and injury mitigation for pedestrians. Honda has a car-to-car crash test facility at its Tochigi R&D site that analyses impacts between vehicles of different sizes. The facility then develops solutions to mitigate injuries for both passengers and pedestrians.

The new CR-V is the next model to receive the new Earth Dreams Technology 1.6 i-DTEC diesel engine, which will feature 120PS of output and 300 Nm of torque and 120 PS as well as only 119g/km of carbon dioxide emissions. This new derivative will be available in autumn 2013.
