Insurance premiums are low on this vehicle due in a large part to the fact that it is incredibly safe.
An IIHS Top Safety Pick+, the 2015 Honda CR-V is rated excellently in every measure of safety. With optional front end crash prevention that is rated as “superior,” the CR-V will keep all of its passengers protected.
