In the 4th ASEAN NCAP Grand Prix Awards 2020, the Honda City received the "Consistent 5-Star Award". The award implies that the Honda City has been rated 5 stars for several generations.

Under the ASEAN NCAP testing, three generations of the Honda City have been crash-tested, namely the GM2, GM6, and GN2.

As the ASEAN NCAP testing procedure has evolved over the years, starting with only frontal impact collision, later on including side collision, and the assessment of ADAS. The latest development is the assessment of motorcyclist safety (ASEAN NCAP Protocol 2021-2025).

The Honda City has managed to keep up with the ASEAN NCAP standards to score 5 stars every time.
