The New Car Assessment Programme for Southeast Asian Countries (ASEAN NCAP) recently performed an assessment on the newly launched Honda City model. This is the third assessment that ASEAN NCAP performed on the model in which the first was conducted in 2012 whilst the second in 2014.
The new Honda City for 2020 had an outstanding result under the current 2017-2020 assessment. The sedan obtained an overall score of 86.54 points which it was awarded with 5-Star ASEAN NCAP rating. For each assessed category from this accumulated score, the City received 44.83 points for the Adult Occupant Protection (AOP) category, 22.82 points for Child Occupant Protection (COP) and 18.89 points for Safety Assist Technologies (SATs).
The new sedan has a standard fitment of four airbags, Seatbelt Reminder System (SBR) for both of its frontal occupants and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) across all its variants. An Emergency Stop Signal technology is also available in the current City variant that is launched and sold in the Thailand market either as standard or optional fitment. Nevertheless, all the safety assist technologies that are assessed by ASEAN NCAP will be available either as standard or as an option in all the variants that will be launched soon in several countries across South East Asia. In addition, the City will be offering a Blind Spot Visualization (BSV) technology in variants that are available in certain South East Asia countries. The BSV is available as an optional equipment fitted on the passenger side of the vehicle.
