U.S. crash testing authority gives full marks to Honda HR-V.
The Honda HR-V crossover has been given a five star safety rating by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) New Car Assessment Program (NCAP).
The awarding of the full five star safety score in the U.S. should see the new Honda crossover model handed a five star ANCAP safety rating here in Australia, in the not too distant future.
The NHTSA recognized the Honda HR-Vs performance in crash testing and also awarded points based on the models standard safety and Driver-Assist features.
Jeff Conrad, Honda U.S. Division senior vice president and general manager, welcomed the top safety rating.
“Using Honda’s packaging magic, powertrain innovation and safety engineering expertise, the HR-V delivers a high level of occupant safety protection along with class-leading fuel economy and interior space.”
“True to Honda’s commitment to the safety of all road users, the HR-V is designed to make the vehicle more compatible with other vehicles and to help to mitigate injuries to pedestrians in the event of a collision.”
The Honda HR-V is priced from $24,990 in Australia. Interested in a Honda HR-V? Check out our most recent Honda HR-V review.
