The Honda BR-V has scored a 5-star rating in the ASEAN NCAP crash tests held in Japan along with a 4-star rating for Child Occupant Protection.
The Honda BR-V is a highly anticipated SUV that will be going on sale in the Indian market very soon. The SUV has now bagged an excellent 5-star rating at the ASEAN NCAP crash tests that were conducted in Japan. The BR-V got a score of 14.79 out of 16.00 in Adult Occupant Protection while it scored 4-stars and 72% for Child Occupant Production.
The variant of the Honda BR-V that was used in the crash tests was loaded with safety features like Electronic Stability Control and Seatbelt Reminder System. The lower variants that come with dual front airbags, ABS, Vehicle Stability Assist and Hill Start Assist would have scored a 4-star rating.
Officials from ASEAN NCAP stated that while the test vehicle was the top variant loaded with all the safety features, the organization will push for these features to be offered in lower variants too, so that everyone can benefit from the tech. The Indian version of the Honda BR-V is also likely to come with most of these safety features.
The Honda BR-V will be launched in India in by May. It will be manufactured at the company’s production facility in Tapukara, Rajasthan. It will be offered with the same 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines that also power the City and Mobilio. The Honda BR-V will be competing with the likes of the Hyundai Creta, Renault Duster and Mahindra XUV500.
