The all-new Honda HR-V achieved a 5-star rating with an overall score of 100.92 out of 120, including a frontal offset impact test, a side impact test, and an evaluation of its safety features.

It received impressive scores of 28.00/32 for Adult Occupant Protection, 45.43/51 for Child Occupant Protection, 19.50/21 for Safety Assist Technologies, and 8.00/16 for Motorcyclist Safety.

The second-generation Honda HR-V made its debut in Southeast Asia in Thailand in November 2021. It is now sold in nine countries in the region and started to sell in Vietnam in June. The model has received impressive feedback from ASEAN customers in general and Vietnamese users in particular.

It is attractive because of its outstanding value, sporty performance, advanced technology, and comfort, as well as the trust of customers that contributes to the success of this B-class SUV.

The second-generation Honda HR-V is equipped with the most advanced technology such as Honda SENSING – an advanced safety driving assist system that comprehensively protects the driver, passengers, pedestrians, and surrounding vehicles.

With the use of its fast processor, the system measures distance and the lateral position of objects based on the change in the size of the target object, how long it took for the change to occur, and the speed of the vehicle. This enables the camera to recognise white lines and road boundaries such as curbs, motorcycles, pedestrians, and cyclists.

It provides warnings and supports the driver to avoid or mitigate the severity of a collision. The RS grade is also equipped with the Honda LaneWatch, which improves the driver's visibility by nearly four times compared to using the rearview mirror, a variable gear ratio system which increases traction, and six airbags.

In order to expand the opportunity to experience the outstanding features of the all-new Honda HR-V and other Honda automobile products, Honda Vietnam has been implementing the Feel The Performance campaign with the highlight being a series of special test-drive events organised by Honda Vietnam in collaboration with Honda automobile dealers nationwide.
