Here's another reason to consider the all-new Honda CR-V: The compact SUV is the first vehicle to receive a five-star ASEAN NCAP safety rating under the organization's new scoring system.

The CR-V, which was launched in the Philippines earlier this month, scored 47.25 points for Adult Occupant Protection, 22.84 points for Child Occupant Protection, and 18.71 points for Safety Assist Technologies for a total of 88.80 points—good enough for five stars. For comparison's sake, the previous-generation CR-V received four stars.

Contributing to the model's successful crash test were dual front airbags, three-point seatbelts, side airbags, curtain airbags, and safety tech such as a blind spot monitoring system and driver attention monitor.

ASEAN NCAP secretary-general Dr. Khairil Anwar Abu Kassim says the vehicle's safety levels were consistent with other regions as well.
