2020 Honda City Scores Perfect 5-Star ASEAN NCAP Safety Rating
The all-new 2020 Honda City managed to score a perfect 5-star ASEAN New Car Assessment Program (ASEAN NCAP) safety rating.
Scoring 86.54 points overall, the all-new City is awarded with the organization’s highest safety rating using the revised (and stricter) 2017-2020 assessment. The City received 44.83 points in the Adult Occupant Protection (AOP) category, 22.82 points for Child Occupant Protection (COP), and 18.89 points in the Safety Assist Technologies (SAT).
Honda’s newest sub-compact sedan is fitted with 4 airbags, ABS with EBD, seatbelt reminder, and stability control across all its variants in Thailand resulting in the high score. That said, it’s understood that Honda will also offer them as well on variants to be sold across Southeast Asia as well. Blind Spot Visualization (in this case, Lane Watch) is also available in certain variants as well.
MIROS Director-General and ASEAN NCAP Chairperson, Ts. Dr. Siti Zaharah Ishak said: “We are excited to have another 5-Star car in the line-up of ASEAN NCAP assessed vehicles. Although the City was assessed twice prior to this, we can see there have been significant improvements in the number of safety technologies that are equipped in this new model as a standard fitment. I am also pleased that in addition to the existing safety assist technologies ASEAN NCAP is assessing, which will be available in variants that will be launched soon, Honda has also added an Emergency Stop Signal technology that consumers will benefit in mitigating any unwanted collision.”
The 2020 model marks the third Honda City assessed by the ASEAN NCAP in which the first was in 2012, while the second in 2014. In both occasions, it has shown 5-star safety performances.
