The Honda Accord has undergone a few tweaks for 2021 and looks better than ever. And it's safer, too, because it has received the IIHS (lnsurance Institute for Highway Safety) Top Safety Pick+ award. In addition, the Accord's standard frontal collision avoidance system has received an IIHS "Superior" rating in frontal collision avoidance tests for both vehicle-to-vehicle and pedestrian-vehicle.

Based on Honda's "Safety for All" approach, all Accord models are equipped with the Honda Sensing suite as standard equipment. The Honda Sensing Suite includes safety and driver-assistance features with every model variant. These include Collision Mitigation Braking and Pedestrian Detection, Head-on Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning with Intervention, Lane Keeping Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control.

Honda Sensing is standard or available on all new Honda models.

All Honda vehicles also benefit from Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure. ACE is designed to help protect occupants in a variety of frontal collision scenarios, including dissipating energy away from the occupants.

Finally, to be eligible for the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award, a vehicle must achieve a Good rating in six crashworthiness evaluations, including the driver's side, low overlap front of vehicle, passenger side, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests. It must also achieve Advanced or Superior ratings for Vehicle-to-Vehicle and Vehicle-to-Pedestrian Frontal Collision Avoidance and Acceptable or Good ratings for headlamps for all catalogue versions.
