The Honda Accord and Honda City received four distinguished safety-related awards at the ASEAN NCAP (ASEAN New Car Assessment Program) Grand Prix Awards 2020. This achievement emphasizes Honda’s strong commitment to safety and its vision to realize a collision-free mobile society.
The 10th generation Honda Accord, which has been awarded a 5-Star ASEAN NCAP safety rating, received 3 awards from the “Best Safety Performance” category in “Adult Occupant Protection", “Child Occupant Protection" and, “Overall” (the highest score of the overall assessment).
The model made its ASEAN debut in Thailand in March 2019 and has since expanded sales to six other countries. It has also received several prestigious awards in ASEAN countries such as:

Locally, the 10th generation Honda Accord made its debut in the Philippine market in September 2019. On top of all the safety features it presents, the current Honda Accord now comes with Honda SENSING to prevent and effectively respond to dangerous driving situations.
The 5th generation Honda City, the latest Honda model to achieve the 5-star safety rating, won the “ASEAN NCAP Excellent Award - Consistent 5 Star” for its excellence and continuous 5-star safety rating of its 3rd, 4th, and 5th generation.
Following the world premiere of the all-new Honda City in Thailand in November 2019, it was also introduced in Malaysia, the Philippines, and Vietnam respectively. The model sold over 45,000 units within 1 year after the launch, representing the best-selling Honda model in ASEAN.
