The 2020 CR-V Hybrid
is the recipient of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's 2020 TOP SAFETY PICK
Honda says the CR-V Hybrid joins the rest of the CR-V lineup, when equipped with specific headlights, Accord and three Civic models (Coupe, Sedan and Hatchback (excludes Type R) in achieving TSP ratings.
For 2020, all CR-V models provide Honda Sensing as standard equipment on all trim levels. It includes Collision Mitigation Braking System with Pedestrian Detection, Forward Collision Warning, Road Departure Mitigation incorporating Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist System, and Adaptive Cruise Control.
All Honda vehicles also benefit from Honda's proprietary Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure, which Honda says is 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.
- offer front crash prevention that earns an "ADVANCED" or "SUPERIOR" rating in both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian testing.
- earn "GOOD" or "ACCEPTABLE" ratings for available headlights.
To get the highest TSP+ rating, vehicles must achieve the same "GOOD" or "ACCEPTABLE" rating for their standard headlights.
Honda also says additionally, the Honda Insight
achieved a TOP SAFETY PICK+
rating, combining to six Honda models earning TSP or better.
