“We are excited to have another 5-Star car in the line-up of ASEAN NCAP assessed vehicles. Although the City was assessed twice prior to this, we can see there have been significant improvements in the number of safety technologies that are equipped in this new model as a standard fitment. I am also pleased that in addition to the existing safety assist technologies ASEAN NCAP is assessing, which will be available in variants that will be launched soon, Honda has also added an Emergency Stop Signal technology that consumers will benefit in mitigating any unwanted collision,” MIROS Director-General and ASEAN NCAP Chairperson, Ts. Dr. Siti Zaharah Ishak said.

The new sedan has a standard fitment of four airbags, seatbelt reminder system (SBR) for both of its frontal occupants and electronic stability control (ESC) across all its variants. An emergency stop signal technology is also available in the Honda City that is launched Thailand either as standard or optional fitment.
