Re: car safety?

4th gen had 4 star frontal and side rating. I assume the 5th gen wouldn't be any worse than that.

Re: car safety?

Nice to know it's a safe car. Don't have any hard facts, but most sports cars from Japan are pretty high on safety ratings, I'm told

Re: car safety?

How weird... So I've been lookin online and can't find a single site that has a saftey rating... There was one that was an independent testing that said 46 outta 100, whatever that means??... But I'd take it with a grain of salt...

Re: car safety?

Interesting that there are no test results at all.
I have a couple of friends who lived in Japan for several years and were big into the racing scene, they are the ones that told me how well they hold up in crashes...only once from their own experience thankfully

I found this for a Honda Prelude 1997 Si. It's apparently 5 stars.
