2016 Honda HR-V receives 5 star safety rating


The Honda HR-V is one of the more highly anticipated arrivals of 2016. Those who are fans of Honda have been eagerly awaiting this vehicle due to its array of impressive features. With a maneuverable size and sleek appearance, the vehicle is certainly able to catch the eye of anyone it drives past. Premium engineering and an impressive array of upscale features also come standard with the 2016 HR-V. However this model has managed to acquire a distinction that stands out even in the competitive automotive industry; the HR-V has just been given a five-star safety rating by the ASEAN New Car Assessment Program.

Customers may wonder what this actually means for them in terms of functionality. Safety is always a top concern of Honda. Going beyond the minimally required safety features indicates Honda’s commitment to invest in safety and to hold the health of those who use their vehicles in the highest regard. This safety rating has been acquired thanks to the use of a number of features and design choices which lend themselves well to avoiding common accidents.

A series of rigorous tests saw the compact crossover get a score of 15.21/16 for frontal offset collision and 73% for child occupant protection. This high rating has a lot to do with the rigid body structure that is designed to provide maneuverability and control. A wide array of safety features also provides drivers with all the tools they need to avoid common problems.

The electronic parking brake with brake hold, emergency stop signal, hill-start assist, and vehicle stability assist all provide the type of assistance and protection needed to keep drivers and passengers protected. The antilock brakes and electronic brake-force distribution are a solid improvement over the brakes offered in other models, and six airbags ensure protection for everyone in the car.
