Automotive shows consist of big brands introducing brand-new models. However, Honda took a different approach at the New York International Auto Show this year. Rather than highlighting new vehicles — like the 2019 Passport — the Japanese carmaker revealed a refreshed 2019 HR-V, which recently passed a safety crash test with IIHS.
In this display, the HR-V highlighted a vehicle’s experience in a crash — and what it looks like afterward. It showed the compact crossover’s structural strength, airbag deployment, and the progression of its safety technologies.
The 2019 Honda HR-V received recognition for safety when IIHS named the vehicle a 2019 Top Safety Pick with the Honda Sensing® technology and certain headlights. When put through the paces of the IIHS crash tests, the HR-V earned the highest available rating of “Good” in all six tests. It also achieved a “Superior” rating for front crash prevention with the available Honda Sensing®.
Honda has seven models in its 2019 model year lineup that have earned Top Safety Pick or Top Safety Pick+ ratings from the IIHS. This includes the Insight, Accord, HR-V, CR-V, Pilot, Odyssey, and Ridgeline.
