Redesigning of the front fascia for the Honda Fit has drawn positive results and resulted in scoring from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. This not only enabled the car after retesting, the Top Safety Pick title but also pickup a NCAP five star rating on the safety from NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration).
Two most important feathers on the cap of the Honda Fit and, to everyone\'s surprise, the maker was immediate to publish the news. The advertising text goes like this: Fit shows that you don’t need to sacrifice on space, comfort and crashworthiness just because you own a smaller vehicle said Art St. Cyr., the Honda Auto Operations Vice President. He further claimed that commitment of Honda to its customers on road safety is peerless and Fit exhibit this commitment in the most forceful way.
A press release published by the company from Torrance, California announces that the Subcompact Honda Fit has achieved both the IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK and the NCAP 5-star rating and it is the fifth vehicle from the Honda to achieve this distinction for 2015. The 5-star rating achieved by the fuel efficient and spacious Honda Fit 2015 is the top score offered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, NCAP (New Car Assessment Program). The redesigned 2014 Honda Fit earns both the NCAP 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score of NHTSA and the Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety thus becoming the most remarkable and outstanding choice from the segment it represents.
The sub-compact is already hailed as a benchmark vehicle in terms of innovative features, passenger and storage space, and safety features for the occupants. This has been further promoted by the use of the future generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) car body construction. This technology makes the car stronger against frontal collision afforded by wide range of oblique and offset collision modes.
