Honda Malaysia Provides City & Guidance For Inaugural ASEAN NCAP Crash Test

Honda Malaysia is sponsoring the Honda City for the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Vehicles (MIROS) to conduct the inaugural ASEAN New Car Assessment Programme (ASEAN NCAP) crash test. The first crash test, carried out at 63.6 km/h, took place at the specially-built NCAP crash lab in Malacca. The official ASEAN NCAP crash test of the City is to wait till December, and the final results will be made public by MIROS on the ASEAN NCAP's website.

Honda Malaysia's contribution to this cause goes beyond just giving a City, however. With an aim to improve motoring safety standards in Malaysia and to standardise the safety ratings among all local car manufacturers, Honda is also providing on-site technical expertise to make sure the ASEAN NCAP is up to international crash standards.

Chief and Assistant Chief Engineer of Honda's R&D department, Mr. Yoshiji Kadotani and Mr. Tadashi Mashita brought their vast experience gained from crash-testing over 20,000 cars to guide the MIROS team during the crash test sessions, advising on key details from the placement of dummies and mechanics to achieve the desired speed to return accurate results, to the ideal in-car temperature to monitor the dummies and the adjustment of the cables to obtain the right tension when the car is pulled.
