Honda Malaysia today announced that the all-new CR-V has achieved 5-Star rating with the overall score of 88.80 points in the new rating system of ASEAN NCAP.
The CR-V was selected for rating and subsequently became the first model in the ASEAN region to obtain the result from the new ASEAN NCAP assessment. This rating applies for all variants of the CR-V, which was launched in mid-July.
The award ceremony was held today at “The Inaugural ASEAN NCAP Result Release 2017-2020 Protocol” event at the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (MIROS), Kajang, Selangor.

This is the second consecutive generation of CR-V that has won 5-star rating since ASEAN NCAP was introduced in 2011. In 2014, the 4th generation CR-V achieved 5-Star rating in the AOP and 86% in the COP.
