The all-new Honda Jazz Awarded Best in Class Supermini 2015 by Euro NCAP
The all-new Honda Jazz has been awarded with independent safety organisation Euro NCAP’s prestigious Best in Class 2015 award in the supermini category. In 2015 the Honda Jazz received a maximum 5-star safety rating, which then took the title from a field of nine superminis in total.
Each year, Euro NCAP publishes a list of vehicles that have performed the best in their respective categories. To achieve a ‘Best in Class’ award, cars from each category are assessed against the main four key areas: Adult Occupant, Child occupant, Pedestrian and Safety assist. This sum is used as the basis for comparison of the vehicles.
Secretary General, Dr. Michiel van Ratingen of Euro NCAP, commented on the news, “Euro NCAP congratulates Honda for the Jazz, which received the Best in Class of 2015 in the supermini category. The award recognizes the Jazz’s five star performance and Honda’s safety equipment strategy which make it the top performer in this segment.”
“We are thrilled to have the Jazz named as the Best in Class supermini 2015 by Euro NCAP,” comments Honda Motor Europe senior vice president, Philip Ross. “Honda is committed to providing customers with high quality products that meet the most stringent safety standards in Europe. This commitment to safety is highlighted by each Honda model available in Europe – Civic, CR-V, Jazz and the HR-V – achieving the full 5-star rating from Euro NCAP. 2015 was a big year for Honda and we have seen the Jazz and our other new products being embraced and appreciated by the customers, as well as organisations such as Euro NCAP.”
