Honda first to put crash data on stickers

Honda Motor Co. has announced it will post the U.S. government’s crash-test data on the window stickers of new cars for sale, beginning with its 2006 models.

The aim is to help consumers evaluate vehicle safety features, the company said.

Honda will be the first company in the U.S. auto industry to add the information about the results of annual crash tests by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to price stickers, Kyodo News reported earlier this week.

At present, automakers operating in the United States are obliged to publish price and fuel economy with other information on the selling stickers of new vehicles. But posting data on the results of NHTSA crash tests is not mandatory.

The NHTSA evaluates vehicles’ safety features on a scale of one to five stars, rating the vehicles’ ability to withstand head-on and side collisions.

Among Honda’s vehicle lineup, eight models, including the luxury Acura model, are assigned the five-star rating.

Honda officials said they hope the addition of crash data will increase sales.
