Honda’s Jazz has achieved the first 3 star pedestrian safety rating for the supermini class of Phase 14 of the Euro NCAP crash test results published today (24 June). This milestone represents a first for any manufacturer to win 3 stars in the fiercely competitive supermini segment under the newer and much tougher testing protocol introduced by NCAP.
Achieving top marks in pedestrian safety puts Jazz alongside Honda’s Stream, Accord, CR-V and the Civic – which was the pioneer in this field and the first ever vehicle to achieve 3 stars.
In addition, the Jazz has the best overall performance for combined safety in the class, with 4 star occupant protection, 3 star pedestrian protection and a 3 star child seat rating. In common with all new Honda models, ISOFIX child seat anchors are provided, the Jazz installation additionally benefiting from top tether mounts for additional stability.
The results confirm Honda’s commitment to safety, and demonstrate that supermini owners do not have to compromise safety in their choice of vehicle type.
