Five Honda Models Earn IIHS Safety Accolades

This won’t come as a huge surprise to those that have been Honda owners for some time, but Honda models continue to be among the safest automobiles in the industry, as proven once again by safety tests performed over the course of the last few months by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

These tests, which look at all the most common ways that a vehicle can be involved in an accident, look at how advanced safety features and designated crumple zones work when a vehicle is pushed to its limits. Since Honda is known for working in cutting-edge safety tech and performing extremely well on these tests, it’s no shock to see that four 2016 model year Honda vehicles already have been named an IIHS Top Safety Pick+, while a fifth has been named a Top Safety Pick.

These models include the 2016 Honda Accord Sedan, 2016 Honda Accord Coupe, 2016 Honda CR-V and redesigned 2016 Honda Pilot, while the 2016 Honda Odyssey was named a Top Safety Pick. All this, and the redesigned 2016 Honda Civic still hasn’t even been tested yet, which is significant in that it, too, has historically been named at least a TSP. Considering redesigns don’t decrease a car’s safety quality, Honda has said in a recent press release that they expect the Civic to join the TSP or TSP+ club again this year, as well.

Honda dealers all over the country continue to enjoy selling some of the safest vehicles on American roads, and we here at Pacific Honda certainly are among them. These are truly impressive all-around vehicles, and the safety scores from the IIHS continue to be a big reason why they see so much annual success.
