In our Honda CR-V reviews, we’ve always been impressed with this crossover’s outstanding technological features. It’s not about just being high-tech, but it shows how the brand prioritizes safety in its lineup of cars. The ASEAN New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) doesn’t turn a blind eye on that fact.
This year, ASEAN NCAP, the organization that conducts crash tests and analyzes the safety features of brand-new vehicles, awards the Honda CR-V with two commendations in its recently-concluded Grand Prix Awards in Indonesia. The crossover’s award-winning features such as Honda SENSING and LaneWatch are at the forefront of its impressive tech equipment, which works hand in hand with its plethora of passive safety features.
The 5-star earner CR-V is regarded as the safest SUV in Child Occupation Protection (COP), while also reaping the “ASEAN NCAP Excellent Award - Consistent 5 Star.” The latter is a citation for the nameplate that got excellence and continuous 5-Star ASEAN NCAP safety rating, with its fourth- and fifth-generation models getting the highest citation consecutively.
Aside from reaping notable review ratings from AutoDeal, the Honda CR-V has also reaped awards within the ASEAN region. Under its belt is the Thailand Car of the Year 2017, FORWOT’s Car of the Year 2017 (Indonesia), Carlist’s Car of the Year 2017 (Malaysia), and CAGI’s Car of the Year (Philippines).
With the CR-V’s achievements come an impressive history of ASEAN NCAP awards for Honda. Check out this table to see what the Japanese carmaker has been getting since 2014:
