2023 Honda Accord Receives Top Safety Pick+ IIHS Rating

New 2023 Honda Accord

The 2023 Honda Accord has earned the highest safety rating, the TOP SAFETY PICK+ (TSP+), from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). This accolade further solidifies the Accord’s reputation as a leader in midsize car safety performance, with exceptional ratings in six out of seven evaluated categories. Honda’s commitment to safety is evident through its advanced safety technologies and comprehensive driver-assistive features which come standard on all Honda models.

One of the 2023 Accord’s outstanding safety performance features lays in its front crash prevention system, which received a “SUPERIOR” rating in the daytime and an “ADVANCED” rating in the nighttime vehicle-to-pedestrian avoidance tests. These ratings highlight the Accord’s ability to help avoid collisions and protect pedestrians, making it a reliable choice for safety-conscious drivers.

Honda’s dedication to safety is reflected in its “Safety for Everyone” approach. The Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver-assistance technologies is now standard on all Honda models, including the new Accord. These features include Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Pedestrian Detection, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist System, and Adaptive Cruise Control, among others.

The Accord benefits from Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, designed to enhance occupant protection in various collision scenarios. It is equipped with advanced supplemental restraint systems, including pretensioning front seatbelts and a comprehensive set of airbags, ensuring maximum safety for all occupants.

To earn the 2023 THP+ award, a vehicle must achieve “GOOD” ratings in all crashworthiness evaluations, including frontal and side tests, and demonstrate advanced or superior performance in both daytime and nighttime vehicle-to-pedestrian front crash prevention tests. Honda is proud to have multiple models recognized as TOP SAFETY PICK and TOP SAFETY PICK+ for the 2023 model year.

Honda’s commitment to safety extends beyond IIHS ratings. The company aims to achieve zero traffic collision fatalities involving Honda motorcycles and automobiles globally by 2050. With advanced crash-test facilities and pioneering efforts in crashworthiness and pedestrian safety, Honda continues to drive innovation and prioritize safety for everyone sharing the road.

The 2023 Honda Accord’s TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from IIHS is a testament to its exceptional safety performance and Honda’s commitment to providing reliable and secure vehicles. With advanced safety technologies and a focus on protecting occupants and pedestrians, the Accord remains a top choice for those seeking a midsize car with uncompromising safety features.
