This is quite impressive and exciting news for the entire Honda family. Safety as we all know is very important. Such importance shouldn’t be undermined in picking and buying the best car for you or loved ones. This award is earned by the 2019 Honda HR-V after it was equipped with front crash prevention (optional) and very specific headlights.
There are lots of tremendous improvements in the 2019 small SUV which include a better headlights option, front crash prevention system and also an improved performance in the driver side front crash test (overlap).
This driver front seat crash test was only rated 'satisfactorily' in the previous version and no evaluation was done on the passenger side. The new HR-V does very well in all ratings such as IIHS crash worthiness evaluation. Safety improvement was structurally made paramount on the 2019 version of Honda HR-V. This is to protect any occupant of the car from small or moderate frontal overlap crashes.
2019 Honda HR-V front crash prevention system is indeed worthy of emulation
The optional crash prevention system is made available for the very first time in Honda HR-V, which eventually scores very high in the rating. The SUV has the ability to prevent collision thanks to its collision warning components. This enables the vehicle to meet the premium requirement of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
When it comes to the headlight area, its LED reflector headlight with touring trim is rated "satisfactory". The only part of the headlights that was scored poorly is the halogen lower part of the headlight which doesn’t provide sufficient visibility in various headlight tests.
The criteria for 2019 Top Safety Pick award include moderately good rating in areas such as roof strength and head restraint test, small overlap front in the driver side and passenger side. The front clash prevention must meet excellent rating and just an acceptable rating for the headlights.
