Honda redesigned its compact crossover for 2012, and the new model did better in National Highway Traffic Safety Administration crash testing than the previous version. NHTSA gave the 2012 CR-V five stars out of five versus last year's four star-rating.

The CR-V's score was composed of mostly five stars across the different areas of crash testing, but it did earn four stars in the rollover test. The crossover earned fives in overall driver safety, side barrier and side pole crashes.

The CR-V is the latest vehicle to be awarded the organization's top rating. It's the 15th vehicle to be awarded NHTSA's highest combined star rating for the 2012 model year. Other five-star vehicles include the Buick Regal, Cadillac CTS, Cadillac SRX, Chevrolet Camaro, Chevrolet Sonic, Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra, Kia Sportage, Saab 9-4X, Toyota Camry, Volkswagen Passat and Volvo S60.
