2015 Honda Fit Earns 5-Star Safety Rating from NHTSA
The 2015 Honda Fit has received a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the highest score possible from the government organization. Additionally, the Fit has earned both a Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and an NCAP 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the NHTSA for 2015.
“The Fit shows that owning a smaller car doesn’t mean you need to skimp on space, comfort or crashworthiness,” said American Honda vice president of auto operations Art St. Cyr. “Honda’s commitment to the safety of our customers and other road users is second to none, and the Fit demonstrates this commitment in a powerful way.”
The Fit’s crashworthiness has been enhanced for the 2015 model year by the next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure, which improves frontal crash energy management through a range of offset and oblique collision modes.
The Fit also boasts several standard and available safety features, including driver and front passenger SmartVent side airbags, side curtain airbags with rollover sensor, hill start assist, Honda LaneWatch, and a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines.
