2011 Honda Accord Sedan Safety

9.0
Safety
The 2011 Honda Accord is, for the most part, a top-performer with respect to safety; that includes a robust list of safety features as well as an almost perfect set of crash-test results.

Feature-wise, the Accord's list is strong, including electronic stability control, front side airbags, side curtain bags, active front head restraints, and anti-lock brakes.

In the revised, tougher tests from the federal government, the 2011 Accord has been given five stars for frontal and side impact. And in tests from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the Accord has been rated 'good' for frontal, side, and rear tests. The only blemish in the Accord's safety record is an 'acceptable'—rather than 'good'—rating in the new IIHS roof strength test, which helps indicate the level of occupant protection in the event of a rollover. The Accord has a low center of mass and, when compared to taller crossovers and SUVs, is less likely to be tripped and roll over.

The 2011 Honda Accord is packed with feel-good safety features, and its safety ratings are excellent.

Although the Accord is somewhat high-shouldered for a sedan, outward visibility is good. Accord Coupe models have rear-view visibility that shorter drivers might find more difficult.
