The refreshed 2021 #honda Accord has earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) highest accolade, the 2020 TOP #safety PICK+ (TSP+) rating. Further, Accord’s standard front crash prevention system earned “SUPERIOR” ratings from IIHS in vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian avoidance tests. A combined seven #honda models have earned 2020 TSP ratings or better, with Accord, Insight and Odyssey achieving the pinnacle TSP+ rating.
Based on Honda’s “Safety for Everyone” approach, all Accord models provide the #honda Sensing® suite of #safety and driver-assistive technologies as standard equipment on all trim levels, including Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Pedestrian Detection; Forward CollisionWarning; Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) incorporating Lane Departure Warning (LDW); Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS); and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). #honda Sensing® is now standard or available on all new #honda models, equipped on nearly 4 million #honda vehicles on U.S. roads today.
All #honda vehicles also benefit from Honda’s proprietary Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, designed to help protect occupants in a wide variety of frontal collisions, along with advanced supplemental restraint systems.
To qualify for a 2020 TOP #safety PICK+ award, a vehicle must earn “GOOD” ratings in six crashworthiness evaluations, including the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests. It also needs “ADVANCED” or “SUPERIOR” ratings for both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian front crash prevention, as well as “ACCEPTABLE” or “GOOD” headlight ratings across all trim levels.
Separately, every #honda model that has been fully evaluated in the NHTSA’s 2021 model year NCAP testing, including Accord, has received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score1.
Honda offers a full line of clean, safe, fun and connected vehicles sold through more than 1,000 independent U.S. #honda dealers. #honda has the highest fleet average fuel economy and lowest CO2 emissions of any major full-line automaker in America, according to the latest data from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The #honda lineup includes the Fit, Civic, Insight Accord and Clarity series passenger cars, along with the HR-V, CR-V, Passport and Pilot sport utility vehicles, the Ridgeline pickup and the Odyssey minivan. Honda’s electrified vehicle lineup includes the Accord Hybrid, CR-V Hybrid, Insight hybrid-electric sedan, and the Clarity Fuel Cell and Clarity Plug-In Hybrid.
Honda has been producing automobiles in America for 38 years and currently operates 19 major manufacturing facilities in North America. In 2019, more than 90 percent of all #honda vehicles sold in the U.S. were made in North America, using domestic and globally sourced parts.
