Honda's Commitment to Safety
Honda is committed to providing safety for everyone — that means crash protection not only for our own drivers and passengers, but also for the occupants of other vehicles, and injury mitigation for pedestrians. We are dedicated to identifying and implementing advanced designs and features that help enhance the safety of vehicles on the road.
Leadership Through Real World Research
Honda's is focused on improving safety in the real world, not merely meeting government regulations.
In 2000, Honda opened the world's first indoor multi-directional crash test safety facility, located within our major R&D center in Japan.
In 2003, we added a new Automotive Safety Research Facility to our R&D center in Ohio. Two of the world's most advanced indoor crash safety research facilities, these centers conduct a variety of tests to provide Honda with a deeper understanding of what happens in real world collisions as the basis for new technologies that advance safety.
Through innovative original research, Honda has created advanced airbags that offer high levels of occupant protection.
When it comes to choosing a new vehicle, America is split virtually down the middle—between passenger cars and light trucks.
Our commitment to safety includes the most vulnerable of people traveling on American roadways: pedestrians.
Smartly designed passenger cars can provide high levels of protection. Our vehicle bodies are designed to manage crash energy in a controlled manner and reduce the amount of crash energy that reaches the passenger cabin.
With our light truck models, we don't assume that "bigger is better." Utilizing unit-body designs that make better use of space, Honda creates occupant- protection zones designed to match or exceed the performance of larger, heavier vehicles. To further enhance occupant protection, we equip Honda and Acura SUVs, minivans and trucks with advanced safety features that enhance safety for the driver and passengers and increase compatibility with other vehicles.
Our customers view precise steering, taut handling and superb braking as features that make our vehicles fun to drive. And Honda's racing heritage contributes to these great dynamic qualities.
Honda engineers have created advanced technologies that provide even more outstanding levels of protection in our cars and light trucks.
Honda engineers are developing "pre-collision" safety technology to support drivers' efforts to prevent collisions before they occur.
