SAFETY | 9 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

‘Good,’ frontal offset; ‘good,’ side impact, ‘good,’ rear impact, ‘acceptable,’ roof strength

Five stars overall; five stars frontal, side, and rollover

Visibility from behind the wheel is very good thanks to the cabin's thin pillars, so parking and lane changes are easy.

Kudos for retaining large-print digital readouts that not only can be read at a glance (a safety feature)

Accord's well-tuned stability control really keeps the car in check
Edmunds' Inside Line

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.

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.


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

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
