The 2015 Honda fit has been awarded a Five-Star Overall Vehicle Score, the top score available in the U.S. 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 Five-Star Overall Vehicle Score from NHTSA for 2015, making it even more of a standout choice in its segment.
Already a benchmark subcompact in terms of 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 mitigate the forces transmitted to the passenger compartment.
Standard safety equipment on all 2015 Honda models includes the next-generation of Honda's ACE body structure, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with traction control; an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS); side curtain airbags (some vehicles equipped with a rollover sensor as well); dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags; and front side airbags.
