Honda achieves highest MOT pass rate

2018 Honda Jazz Sport

Hondas are more likely to pass an MOT first time than any other brand, according to Department for Transport (DfT) statistics.

The official information shows which cars are awarded a pass most often, based on data from 2017.

In addition to topping the list of brands most likely to achieve a pass first time, Honda also has the highest number of MOT passes for an individual model.

The Honda Jazz has an MOT pass rate of 96.32%, followed by the Porsche 911 at 95.93% and the Toyota iQ at 94.49%.

Marc Samuel, fleet sales operations manager, said: “SMR costs are increasingly becoming one of the key influencers in compiling total cost of ownership figures for fleet managers, often the key barometer for vehicle selection. It therefore makes sense for corporate drivers to minimise annual SMR spend by selecting the most reliable vehicle options.

“The fact that Honda vehicles passed a higher proportion of MOT tests in 2017 than any other marque, and that the Jazz has the highest individual pass rate, is evidence of the reliability and durability of our fleet line-up.”
