Safety Crash Testing
Honda leads the field in automobile safety research. Every new Honda vehicle is extensively crash tested in real-life situations at our crash test facilities in Japan and the USA.
In 2000, Honda opened the world's first indoor omni-directional crash test safety facility, located within our major R&D centre in Tochigi, Japan. In 2003, we added a new Automotive Safety Research Facility to our R&D centre in Ohio, USA.
Two of the world's most advanced indoor crash safety research facilities, these centres conduct an unprecedented variety of tests to provide Honda with a deeper understanding of what happens in real world collisions. From this, Honda develops new technologies that advance vehicle safety.
