On the outside, the 2016 Honda Accord excites with its exquisitely redesigned front and rear fascias accented by brilliant LED lighting. On the inside, it delights with new features such an all-new Display Audio with Apply CarPlay®. The final piece to complete the trifecta is safety of course. Beauty and intelligence alone won’t do. Luckily, the 2016 Honda Accord Sedan and Coupe truly have it all, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) thinks so to, recently bestowing a Top Safety Pick+* designation upon the new Accord.

The Accord received top “GOOD” ratings across all five IIHS test modes. Its front crash prevention system earned a top rating of “Superior”, which confirmed the Accord’s position into the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ echelon.

“With Honda Sensing now available on all Accord trims, the best-selling retail car to American families also leads the midsize segment in safety…..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.” – Jeff Conrad, Honda Division Senior Vice President and General Manager.

True to form, the new 2016 Honda Accord offers multitude of standard safety features. A Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, Expanded Driver’s Mirror, next generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure and Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control are included in every trim level.

The available Honda Sensing™ Suite uses cutting edge sensor fusion technology to anticipate a collision, warn the driver if needed, and apply emergency breaking if warranted. Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) with Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) make up the Honda Sensing™ suite.
