The 2022 Honda HR-V is somewhat unsafe compared to all vehicles.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2022 Honda HR-V has a score of 70, implying a 0.055% chance of driver death (4.9% chance of injury). If equipped with optional advanced driver safety features, the chance of death falls to 0.047%, and the chance of injury falls to 4.2%.

We estimate that the 2022 Honda HR-V has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0552% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 6.3011%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0552% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 6.3011% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2022 Honda HR-V is 18% more likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2022 Honda HR-V is 36% more likely to result in a fatal accident.

2022 Honda HR-V offers AEB optionally. With AEB, the vehicle lifetime fatality chance drops by 14%.

Active safety features with Honda's Honda Sensing greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. An active safety system that is standard on the 2022 Honda HR-V is Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS). Some safety features are optional on the 2022 Honda HR-V--- although they add to the cost, one should consider the benefits of Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM) with Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) and Blind Spot Information System.

A safety feature that may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances, should still be considered. Optional side mirror turn signals alert others of your intention to turn or switch lanes allowing them to react accordingly, which can prevent accidents caused by not seeing a vehicle in the blind spot.

And it is less safe than many comparable cars.
