The all-new 2007 Honda CR-V, along with the 2007 Honda Pilot, were among seven SUVs to earn 2007 Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) TOP SAFETY PICK Awards. The annual award, given to SUVs for the first time this year, recognizes vehicles that perform best in protecting passengers in front, side and rear crashes, based on their ratings in the Institute's tests.

"Honda is honored that IIHS awarded their highest safety rating of 'TOP SAFETY PICK' to both the Pilot and the all-new CR-V, recognizing the advances Honda continues to make through our 'Safety for Everyone' commitment," said John Mendel, senior vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "Having both the CR-V and Pilot earn IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK awards demonstrates that mainstream and affordable Honda SUVs can achieve the highest levels of crash protection in these types of tests."

As part of Honda's "Safety for Everyone" initiative, all trim levels of the 2007 Honda CR-V and the 2007 Honda Pilot include side curtain airbags with a rollover sensor as standard equipment. These airbags further complement the vehicles' existing standard driver's and front passenger's airbags (SRS), front-side air bags with passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System and Vehicle Stability Assist(TM) (VSA(R)). In addition, the CR-V utilizes Honda's Advanced Compatibility Engineering(TM) (ACE(TM)) body structure.
