At Honda, we strive to provide a high level of standard safety features to help ensure the safety of occupants, other drivers and even pedestrians. With this added peace of mind, our drivers have the confidence to enjoy every road to the fullest.
To assist with safe stopping, the 4-wheel Anti-lock Braking System* (ABS) is designed to help you maintain control under hard braking conditions, while Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) helps to optimize braking power based on weight distribution inside the vehicle. In addition, Brake Assist is engineered to help improve braking performance by applying full brake pressure when a panic stop is detected.
Vehicle Stability Assist* (VSA®) with Traction Control is designed to sense and help correct oversteer and understeer scenarios to enhance handling and cornering stability, while Traction Control is designed to minimize wheel spin when accelerating on loose or slippery surfaces, helping to inspire greater driver confidence.
To promote enhanced safety and fuel efficiency, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System* monitors and compares the rolling radius and rotational characteristics of each wheel and tire while you are driving to determine if one or more tires are significantly under-inflated.
When you take your foot off the brake, this feature is engineered to temporarily maintain brake pressure to help prevent your Accord from starting to roll backwards when stopped on an incline.
The highly innovative, next generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure is engineered to help disperse frontal impact energy to enhance occupant protection, while more effectively controlling it in severe collisions, to help prevent intrusion into the passenger cabin.
The Accord comes with six standard airbags. It features dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags as well as Smartvent™ side airbags, which are designed to deploy in a manner that mitigates the risk of injury to out-of-position or smaller occupants. On top of all that, it features a side curtain airbag with a wide deployment profile designed to help enhance ejection mitigation.
The HondaLink™ Assist Automatic Emergency Response System* helps you get the help you need when you need it most. If the airbags deploy, your Display Audio System* is designed to automatically attempt to put you on a call with an operator who will forward your location to first responders if needed. It works with any compatible Bluetooth® -paired phone as long as it has reception, does not require a subscription and gives you added peace of mind while you’re on the road.
The Accord features rear seat Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH), which give you a simple and convenient method to install compatible child safety seats without using the vehicle’s seat belt system.
Innovative pedestrian safety features include an energy-absorbing hood and front fenders and deformable wiper pivots.
The Accord helps prepare you for the unexpected with 3-point height-adjustable front seat belts with automatic tensioning system and 3-point rear seat belts.
