Safety Ratings

Thanks to careful design work, a generous suite of airbags, and other safety features, the 2017 Honda Accord has received top safety scores from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The new 2017 Honda Accord sedan received five out of five stars overall in government crash tests with the NHTSA*, including five stars in the side crash, side barrier, combined side barrier & pole, and rollover safety tests. Meanwhile, the IIHS gave the 2017 Accord sedan its top recognition of Top Safety Pick+ for 2017**. This includes the best score of “Good” in the small overlap, moderate overlap, side, roof strength, and head restraints & seats tests, as well as the best score of “Superior” for front crash prevention.

Honda Sensing

This advanced suite of driver assist and collision mitigation safety features is installed in the 2017 Honda Accord to make every drive safer and easier. Here’s what’s included:

  • Lane Keeping Assist System: This system reads lane markers and the location of your vehicle, sending you warnings and making small corrective measures if it senses that you’re leaving your lane.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System: Using similar tech to the Lane Keeping Assist system, this program sends you an alert if you’re beginning to drift off the road and intervenes.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control: Set your cruise control, and this system will be engaged, automatically detecting the distance between the front of your car and the back of the car ahead of you and maintaining a safe distance automatically.
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System: This feature recognizes when a collision with a vehicle in front of you is about to occur and takes action by braking to mitigate or avoid the collision.
