Honda at the 2019 New York International Auto Show
Each year, car manufacturers bring their newest vehicles, concepts and technologies to auto shows all over the world to give fans and critics a look at what’s to come. However, whenever a new vehicle is shown, it is always displayed in the most exciting and stylish way possible. This year, Honda took things a bit differently at NYIAS. So, let’s take a look at Honda at the 2019 New York International Auto Show.
2019 Honda HR-V at NYIAS
For this year’s auto show in New York, Honda had their exciting new 2019 HR-V on display. However, it wasn’t just any HR-V, it was actually a model that had gone through a plethora of safety crash tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). While not the prettiest of sights at the auto show, the team wanted to show the emotional side of what happens to a vehicle after a crash.
Safety has always been a big part of the design of Honda vehicles, and the new HR-V is built using an Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure. To further help protect passengers, the new crossover also offers an advanced seatbelt and airbag system, along with the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies.
“Safety performance is an important factor in the purchase decision of most car buyers regardless of vehicle size or price, and we wanted to display how well our entry SUV, the Honda HR-V, performed in one of the most stringent collision tests in the world. By having a crashed HR-V on display at the New York Auto Show, media and consumers will be able to see first-hand how the HR-V performed in the IIHS test, with dramatic, real-world visuals to showcase our safety rating leadership and our commitment to Safety for Everyone.”
-Henio Arcangeli, Jr., senior vice president of Automobile Sales at American Honda Motor Co., Inc. and general manager of the Honda Division
