There are plenty of ways to measure how safe a car is. The sheer amount of safety features in some cars is staggering, while others seem to be lacking. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety conducts safety tests on top models every year. Year after year, Honda performs particularly well, proving safety is a top priority on the road.
This year, four Honda vehicles made the Top Safety Pick+ list, the highest safety rating given by the IIHS. Testing areas include small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints and seats.
In the mid-size car segment, both the two-door and four-door Honda Accord held strong, earning top marks in every category, including front crash prevention. Available with the Honda Sensing Package and Collision Mitigation Braking System, the Accord is a top model in its segment for another year.
In the small car category, the Honda Civic pulled the same scores as its older sibling. As for family vehicles, the Honda CR-V crossover earned the top rating as well.
Although it wasn’t a Top Safety Pick+, we can’t forget the Honda Odyssey minivan, which fell just short of the top score. Coming in with a Top Safety Pick rating, the Odyssey earned top scores in all but front crash prevention.
When you think of reliable car brands, you probably think of Honda. And when you think of Honda, you probably think of the Honda Accord. Well now when you think of safety, you will probably think of the Honda Accord as well.
The IIHS, short for the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, rewards vehicles that are among the safest on the road with this title.
Safety is easier than ever in the 2016 Honda Accord thanks to the Honda Sensing technology. This advanced system acts as another set of eyes and ears for Honda drivers.
“With Honda Sensing now available on all Accord trims, the best-selling retail car to American families also leads the midsize segment in safety,” said Jeff Conrad, Honda Division senior vice president and general manager, in the press release. “Our continued application of Honda Sensing technologies to more vehicles in our lineup is advancing our goal of reducing collisions and fatalities for everyone on the road.”

Honda safety technology is the best in the industry. In fact, the automaker has built an unshakeable reputation for producing some of the safest vehicles on the road.
Look at the Honda Sensing suite, for instance. Composed of technologies like Lane Keeping Assist, Road Departure Mitigation, Collision Mitigation Braking system among others, this suite is designed to sense the important things you might miss and even to take actions to mitigate an accident.
Honda is often recognized by the automotive community for its prowess in safety. Just recently, the 2016 Honda HR-V just received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from NHTSA. The new HR-V boasts safety features like SmartVent Front Side Airbags, Honda LaneWatch (on certain trims) and Motion-Adaptive Electric Power Steering.
Meanwhile, the 2016 Honda Pilot was also awarded a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score by NHTSA. The Pilot also picked up a Top Safety Pick+ award from the IIHS when it was equipped with Honda Sensing.
