Honda Accord awarded five-star ASEAN NCAP rating

The tenth-generation Honda Accord has been awarded with a five-star safety rating by ASEAN NCAP following its evaluation in crash tests carried out in July. The sedan obtained an overall score of 91.79 out of 100, including a frontal offset impact test, side impact test, and evaluation of safety features.

The Accord, which is the only Honda model to be tested this year, also received a score of 49.07 for Adult Occupant Protection (AOP), 23.28 for Child Occupant Protection (COP), and 19.44 for Safety Assist Technologies (SATs).

The new Accord made its ASEAN debut in Thailand in March this year, followed by Indonesia in July, the Philippines in September, and Singapore and Vietnam in October; it’s due to be introduced in Malaysia. The automaker says that sales in Thailand have been positive, the car having received 6,300 bookings as of October. That’s more than swell, if you consider that the state the D-segment sedan market is in right now.

Aside from a redesigned exterior, the biggest change comes in the form of new powertrains – the 2.0 litre and 2.4 litre naturally-aspirated engines seen previously have been replaced by a 1.5 litre turbo and a 2.0 litre hybrid. The 1.5 litre VTEC Turbo mill is the same as that on the Civic and CR-V, with the latter’s output tune of 187 hp (190 PS) and 243 Nm of torque from 1,500 to 5,500 rpm.

As for the Accord Hybrid, its Sport Hybrid i-MMD (Intelligent Multi-Mode Drive) system combines a 2.0 litre naturally-aspirated i-VTEC engine with two electric motors. The Atkinson-cycle engine is good for 145 hp and 175 Nm, while the pair of e-motors deliver 184 hp and 315 Nm, with total system output rated at 215 hp.

Like the current car, the new Accord is equipped with the full Honda Sensing suite of safety features, with Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM). Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), the last working together with a Low Speed Follow (LSF) function all grouped under its umbrella.

Other safety features include six airbags, ABS, EBD, BA, VSA, Hill Start Assist, Honda LaneWatch and a multi-angle rear view camera.

      When a small car costing 5X less scores the same star rating, you’d know it is high time to up the rating system. ASEAN NCAP testing doesn’t serve its purpose anymore.

      Where is that joker that keep saying Malaysia has the highest car prices in the world? Where that idiot? He must be thinking Thailand is not in this world. Perhaps in Asgard.
