2016 Honda HR-V Achieves 5-Star Safety Rating from NHTSA
The 2016 Honda HR-V has earned a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Five is the highest number of stars available in the NHTSA’s New Car Assessment Program (NCAP).
“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,” said Honda executive Jeff Conrad. “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.”
Honda’s latest crossover utilizes the most recent generation of Honda’s Advanced Compatability Engineering (ACE) body structure, which improves the vehicle’s frontal crash energy management and better maintains the passenger compartment volume during head-on collisions.
In addition to its strengthened body structure, the 2016 HR-V features a long list of active and passive safety features, including SmartVent front side airbags, side curtain airbags with rollover sensor, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with traction control, power steering, ABS brakes, Honda LaneWatch, Hill Start Assist (HSA), expanded view driver’s mirror, and a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines.
