WASHINGTON, DC–The all-new 2019 Honda Passport achieved a 5-star Overall Vehicle Score, the highest available overall safety rating issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) as part of its New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). With this result, every tested 2019 Honda vehicle has earned an NCAP 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the NHTSA.
The Passport and other Honda models’ crash-worthiness is enabled in part by the latest generation of Honda‘s proprietary Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, a network of front-frame structures designed to absorb and deflect the energy from a frontal collision.
Beyond crashworthiness, the Honda Sensing® suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies is now standard equipment on the 2019 Passport, Accord, Civic2, Clarity series, Insight, and Pilot and available on every Honda nameplate. Since its introduction on the 2015 CR-V, Honda has sold over 2.1 million vehicles equipped with Honda Sensing® and nearly 85 percent of all new Honda vehicles sold in 2019 are equipped with Honda Sensing®.
Honda Sensing® helps provide greater awareness of driving conditions around the vehicle, in some cases helping drivers maintain lane position and, under certain conditions, slowing or even stopping the vehicle if it detects a potential front collision. Comprising the Honda Sensing® suite are Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Forward Collision Warning; Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) incorporating Lane Departure Warning (LDW); Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS); and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).
