Expert Quotes:

Top Safety Pick

Five stars overall; five stars frontal, side, and rollover (sedan only)

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

A robust list of safety features as well as a nearly perfect set of safety ratings point to the 2012 Honda Accord as one of the safest mid-size sedan choices on the market. 

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.

The 2012 Accord achieved top 'good' ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in frontal and side impact protection, and with a round of updates, now earns a "good" rating for roof strength, which makes it a Top Safety Pick.

In the revised, tougher tests from the federal government, it's all good news; the Accord has been given five stars for frontal and side impact. It's worth noting that the Accord has an especially low center of mass and, when compared to taller crossovers and SUVs, is less likely to be tripped and roll over.

While those looking at the Accord Coupe should pay attention to outward visibility on the test drive, it's not nearly as much of an issue in the Accord sedan.


The Accord has excellent safety ratings, as well as all the expected features for a roomy family sedan.

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.
