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 brake pressure when a panic stop is detected.
To promote enhanced safety and fuel efficiency, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System* is desiged to continually check the air pressure in each tire. If pressure drops in any tire, the driver receives a dashboard alert.
If you take your foot off the brake when stopped on an incline, this feature is engineered to temporarily maintain brake pressure to help prevent your Accord Hybrid from starting to roll backwards.
Vehicle Stability Assist* 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.
The auto high beam feature automatically changes the low beam headlights to high beam headlights in certain circumstances to help improve your vision.
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 Hybrid helps prepare you for the unexpected with 3-point height-adjustable front seat belts with automatic tensioning system and 3-point rear seat belts.
The Accord Hybrid features childproof rear door locks as well as rear seat Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH), giving 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 cabin of the Accord Hybrid contains eight standard airbags, including driver and front passenger knee airbags. It features an i-SRS front airbag system as well as side curtain airbags with rollover sensors designed to deploy in the event of a rollover. Plus, it has SmartVent™ side airbags, which are designed to deploy safely in a manner that mitigates the risk of injury to out-of-position or smaller occupants.
