New Honda BR-V Earns 5-Star ASEAN NCAP Rating

The new 2nd generation Honda BR-V has earned a 5-star rating in the latest round of ASEAN NCAP crash tests with an overall score of 77.02 points.

The tests were assessed under the new 2021-2025 ASEAN NCAP protocol which adds assessment of driver assistance systems, including adult occupant protection (AOP), child occupant protection (COP), safety assist (SA) and motorcyclist safety (MS). The variant tested was the Indonesian-made BR-V Prestige that comes equipped with Honda Sensing. The score is also applicable to Thailand and Philippines market models. Safety equipment on the 2022 BR-V includes ESC, ABS and seat belt reminders (for both front occupants) as standard across all variants.

Features offered as optional equipment include autonomous emergency braking (AEB) City, AEB Inter-Urban, AEB Pedestrian, AEB for Motorcycle, auto high beam (AHB), child presence detection (CPD), forward collision warning, lane departure warning, lane keep assist and blind spot visualization. The 2022 Honda BR-V scored 26.98 out of max 32.00 points in the AOP category, and 44.53 out of 51.00 points in the COP category. Commenting on the result, ASEAN NCAP secretary-general Khairil Anway Abu Kassim said:

“We are proud that Honda has also installed Child Presence Detection technology in the BR-V either as standard or optional fitment. By having this special technology, we are able to prevent incidences where children were accidentally left in the vehicles and consequently avert unavoidable death.”
