The 2019 Honda HR-V has earned a TOP SAFETY PICK (TSP) rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), when equipped with optional front crash prevention and specific headlights, including the highest possible rating of “Good” in all six crashworthiness tests and a “Superior” rating for its available Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), part of the Honda Sensing® suite of driver assistive and safety technologies.
Refreshed for the 2019 model year, the 2019 HR-V received numerous updates to its structure to improve frontal crash performance, as demonstrated in the IIHS’ small and moderate front overlap tests. In addition, Honda Sensing is now standard on EX and above trims, which, in addition to CMBS, includes Forward Collision Warning; Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) incorporating Lane Departure Warning (LDW); Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS); and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). On the new-for-2019 HR-V Touring trim, multi-element LED headlights earned an Acceptable rating in the IIHS evaluation.
The 2019 HR-V is the sixth Honda model to receive a top safety rating from the IIHS. The 2019 Honda Accord, CR-V, PIlot and Odyssey all received TSP, while Insight earned a TOP SAFETY PICK+, the Institute’s highest rating. Separately, every Honda model that has been fully evaluated in NHTSA’s 2019 model year NCAP testing, including the 2019 HR-V, has received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score1.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at email@example.com
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
