NCAP Safety Performance
« on: April 16, 2022, 10:46:54 PM »
New HR-V has been awarded a 4 star rating. Honda will/should be disappointed not to receive the full 5 stars, the HR-V includes a plethora of safety features well advertised by Honda, however, the 4 star rating is related to a general marking down in most areas with safety ratings in the 70ís and 80ís rather than the 90ís that many new comparable cars are awarded.
In comparison the new Jazz received a full 5 stars but included knee airbags and an occupant airbag (prevents occupants injuring one another in a side impact) - the HR-V has neither of those safety airbags. I wonder why not, if it is a penny pinching measure then it has surely come home to bite Honda who have always majored on safety. Disappointing to say the least.

My opinion is that NCAP have gone totally overboard (bonkers) and seem to have people sat bored in offices thinking things up to keep their jobs.

I read only a few days ago that forced speed limiters may be introduced on new cars. That'll cause mayhem when they misread a sign or the GPS goes down or becomes inaccurate.
Let's be careful out there !
