The 2019 Honda HR-V is Crashing the Auto Show

May 1st, 2019 by

The public of the New York International Auto Show will have an impacting surprise this year. Honda will be displaying a refreshed 2019 HR-V that recently was safety crash tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The display will showcase what the vehicle endures in a crash highlighting the progression of safety technology.

“Safety performance is an important factor in the purchase decision of most car buyers regardless of vehicle size or price, and we wanted to display how well our entry SUV, the Honda HR-V, performed in one of the most stringent collision tests in the world,” said Henio Arcangeli, Jr., senior vice president of Automobile Sales at American Honda Motor Co., Inc. and general manager of the Honda Division.

The Honda HR-V was not the only one that was recognized for its safety. Honda has seven 2019 vehicles that earned the IIHS Top Safety Pick: the Honda Insight, Honda Accord, Honda HR-V, Honda CR-V, Honda Pilot, Honda Odyssey, and Honda Ridgeline. However, the 2019 Honda HR-V was named the IIHS Top Safety Pick of the year.

In addition to the ACE™ body structure, and advanced seatbelt and airbag system that are applied to all new Honda vehicles, the Honda Sensing® suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies is now standard or available on all Honda nameplates. It includes Collision Mitigation Braking System™, Forward Collision Warning, Road Departure Mitigation incorporating Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist System, and Adaptive Cruise Control.
