The high-scorer for the 4th ASEAN NCAP Grand Prix Awards 2020 is the 2020 Honda Accord. The car scored the highest points in almost all the scoring pillars of the ASEAN NCAP 2017-2020 Protocol.

Honda Accord Adult Occupant Protection (AOP) - 35.33/36 points

In terms of the AOP pillar, the Honda Accord managed 35.33/36 points, very close to a full score. The side crash-test score and head protection technology (HPT) score were perfect with the only fumble being a slight deduction in frontal impact score.

Besides AOP scores, the Honda Accord also records the highest COP pillar scores for the period of 2019-2020. The Honda Accord boasts a COP score of 45.62/49 points, with excellent side-impact score and child seat installation score.

Honda Accord Safety Assist - 14/18 points (not the highest)

The only pillar that the Honda Accord did not obtain the highest score is the Safety Assist pillar, as that award goes to the Thai-market Toyota Majesty. Here, the Honda Accord manages a score of 14/18 points.

Points aside, the only boxes that the Honda Accord does not tick in the ASEAN NCAP safety-assist test sheet are the “rear passenger seatbelt reminder” and “nearside blind-spot technology”.

From the 2017-2020 ASEAN Protocol, the Honda Accord is just 0.22 points shy of the Toyota Camry’s 14.22/18 points score.

Overall, the Honda Accord scores 91.47/100 points in the ASEAN NCAP test, subsequently giving it 5 stars. That’s a figure Asian parents would be proud of.

The Honda Accord and Toyota Camry are actually equally scored in the 2017-2020 ASEAN NCAP Protocol.

Difference being, the Toyota Camry was tested in 2018, disqualifying it from the 2019-2020 awards.
