Subcompact Crossover HR-V bags 5-Star rating at ASEAN NCAP
Safety seat belts save the lives of many people. But what if your car is complete with advanced safety features such as dual SRS airbags, Auto Break Hold (ABH), Hill Start Assist (HSA), an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), Emergency Stop Signal (ESS), a Multi-view Reverse Camera, a Driver Seat Belt reminder, ISOFIX, and an Immobilizer? I can imagine that you will walk from a crash pretty unscathed with these safety features around you.
Japanese carmaker Honda has proved that their new subcompact Crossover the HR-V is worthy of saving lives after receiving a 5-star rating in a crash test conducted by the ASEAN NCAP (ASEAN New Car Assessment Program) at the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (MIROS) in Selangor, Malaysia.
The result further emphasizes Honda’s commitment to safety both for its customers and other drivers on the road. During the frontal offset crash test, the all-new HR-V scored a total of 15.21 out of 16 points in the Adult Occupant Protection (AOP) category and 73-percent compliance in the Child Occupant Protection (COP) category.
Added safety features found in the new HR-V includes an Electric Parking Break (EPB), a 7-inch Touchscreen Display Audio (for EL and E variants) with Bluetooth Hands Free Telephone (HFT) connectivity, and an Eco Assist System. Moreover, the new HR-V offers versatility with the ULT (Utility, Long, and Tall mode) seat configurations. The HR-V EL variant gets add-on safety features such as side curtain airbags, a passenger seat belt reminder, and rear sensors.
Honda constantly strives to improve the quality of its products by producing safe and reliable vehicles. The all-new Honda HR-V is price at 1.190-million.
