The new Honda Accord Coupe has been awarded by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) with a 5-star safety rating, passing all frontal, side-barrier, and side-pole crash test categories with flying colors. The Accord Coupe is also an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ car.
Accord Coupe boasts the latest incarnation of Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering featuring reinforced frontal structure further enhances frontal crash energy management through a wider range of offset and oblique collision modes.
The car also comes with a whole host of active and passive safety features, including Back-Up Camera, Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Lane Watch help increase driver awareness in the front, sides, and rear of the vehicle.
Add to that dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags, and new SmartVent front side airbags, and side curtain airbags, and the crash test results aren’t surprising at all. So far all 2013 Honda models tested have received good ratings. Mind you, you usually have to buy the range-topping model to get all the safety features.
