Honda Accord Named IIHS Top Safety Pick+

One of the reasons that consumers really give Honda vehicles serious consideration is their reputation for safety. Five 2015 models (and two 2016 models, so far) have been named either a Top Safety Pick or a Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for their efforts in the arena of safety, with the most recent of those automobiles being the 2016 Honda Accord, recently refreshed to offer frontal collision prevention and to dominate the always tough small-front overlap crash test.

Those were the two things missing on the 2015 model year version of the Accord, which was rated as a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS for scoring top marks of “Good” on most of the crash tests the organization performs. This year, though, thanks to some improved engineering and a massive suite of standard and optional advanced safety features known collectively as Honda Sensing, the Accord is safer than it ever has been, which is why it earned a Top Safety Pick+ designation this time around.

"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. "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 dealers all over the country are thrilled to sell so many models that score so well on crash tests, and we here at Pacific Honda especially love that our best-selling vehicle now boasts the most comprehensive suite of safety features in its segment. Now even more consumers will choose Honda thanks to its elite safety ratings!
