(autoinsidernews) - The all-new 2007 Honda CR-V joined its 2007 siblings when it received a 5-star crash rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Honda is the only full-line brand to have achieved the distinction. The CR-V earned 5 stars across the board on its crash ratings. To top it off, passengers in the new Honda are surrounded by a full range of standard air bags and held upright by standard stability control, reports Trend.

We are determined to provide Honda customers with confidence and peace of mind when it comes to safety, and these 5-star crash safety ratings for our light trucks are a great symbol of the safety our vehicles offer, said John Mendel, senior vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. Consumers looking for trucks with the best possible government crash safety ratings can't go wrong with a Honda.

The 2007 Honda CR-V missed a perfect score on its rollover scores. The NHTSA rated the CR-V four out of five stars for the rollover test, with a 15 percent chance of rollover for the FWD model and a 17 percent chance for four-wheel drive models.
