The 2015 Honda Fit achieves top crash safety ratings from two of the nations largest safety organizations. The Fit received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) New Car Assessment Program (NCAP). The Fit, completely redesigned in 2014, earns both a TOP SAFETY PICK rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and a NCAP 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from NHTSA for 2015, making it even more of a standout choice in its segment.
All-new 2015 Honda Fit takes advantage of new body structure technology
Already the benchmark subcompact in passenger and cargo space and innovative features, occupant safety features for the 2015 Honda Fit are further enhanced through the next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE) body structure. The ACE body structure improves frontal crash energy management through a wider range of offset and oblique collision modes. In addition, other body reinforcements work in tandem with the strengthened body structure to better maintain the occupant compartment volume during frontal collisions by providing additional crash energy pathways to help with forces transmitted to the passenger compartment.
Key safety and driver-assistive features
In addition to the next-generation ACE™ body-structure, the 2015 Fit features a host of standard active and passive safety features and offers many standard and available driver-assistive technologies:
- Driver and front passenger side airbags
- Side curtain airbags with rollover sensor
- Motion-adaptive Electric Power Steering (EPS)
- Hill start assist
- Expanded view driver’s mirror
- Honda LaneWatch™
- Multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines
Standard safety equipment on all 2015 Honda models includes the ACE body structure, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA®) with traction control; anti-lock brakes (ABS); side curtain airbags (some vehicles equipped with a rollover sensor as well); dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags; and front side airbags.
The all-new Fit joins other safe Honda models
The 2015 Honda Fit is the fifth Honda vehicle for 2015 to achieve top crash safety ratings from both from IIHS and NHTSA. The 2015 Accord, Civic, CR-V, and Odyssey all have received the same distinction.
