As well as the advanced safety technologies in the All-new Honda Accord that received a 5-star rating from ASEAN NCAP, the All-new Honda Accord 10thGeneration Hybrid variant, which is produced in Thailand, is also exported for distribution in Japan. This is another solid proof of high-quality production that meets Honda’s global standards, as well as reflecting customer’s acceptance of products that are produced by Thai people.
This remarkable result endorses Honda’s commitment to creating high-quality automobiles equipped with advanced safety and driving technologies to provide safety and sense of security to drivers and passengers in every journey, which will lead to a collision-free society in the future.
