Honda Jazz 'best car in class' for safety
The current Sunday Independent Car of the Year, the all-new Honda Jazz, below, was awarded last week with safety organisation Euro NCAP's prestigious Best in Class 2015 award in the supermini category.
Earlier in 2015 the Honda Jazz achieved a maximum five-star safety rating. Jazz took the title from a field of nine superminis in total.
To achieve a 'Best in Class' award from Euro NCAP, cars from each category are assessed against a weighted sum of the scores in each of the four key areas of assessment: Adult Occupant, Child Occupant, Pedestrian and Safety assist. All grades of Jazz are fitted with Honda's City-Brake Active System (CTBA) as standard. The mid and upper grades of the Jazz range features Honda's 'Advanced Driver Assist System' (ADAS), a comprehensive suite of active-safety technologies including: forward collision warning, traffic sign recognition system, intelligent speed limiter, lane departure warning and high-beam support system.
