2016 Honda Accord Earns Five-Star Safety Rating From Federal Government


WASHINGTON — The revised 2016 Honda Accord sedan and coupe earned the highest five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The 2016 Accord Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid have not been rated yet by NHTSA.

Scores for the 2016 Accord sedan include a four-star rating in the front crash test and five stars in the side and rollover crash tests. The 2016 Accord coupe earned five stars in all crash tests.

The 2016 Accord sedan will arrive at Honda dealerships on August 19, followed by the 2016 Accord coupe on August 26.

Standard safety equipment on all 2016 Accords includes a rearview camera, six airbags, vehicle-stability assist with traction control and antilock brakes.

The 2016 Accord sedan and coupe feature Honda Sensing, an optional package of autonomous safety and driver-assist systems. They include a collision-mitigation braking system with forward-collision warning, lane-keeping assist, road-departure mitigation with lane-departure warning and adaptive cruise control.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has not rated the 2016 Accord. The 2015 Accord coupe and sedan are 2015 IIHS Top Safety Pick award winners, earning "good" scores in all crash tests.

Key Accord competitors include the Ford Fusion, Hyundai Sonata and Toyota Camry.

Edmunds says: Car shoppers in the midsize sedan segment should note that the 2016 Ford Fusion, Hyundai Sonata and Toyota Camry also earned the highest five-star overall safety rating from NHTSA.
