Expert Quotes:

Good," all crash tests; Top Safety Pick

Five stars, front impact protection; five stars, side-impact protection (three stars for passenger); five stars, rollover resistance

Visibility is good all around in all models

The rear side-impact rating is a concern, but occupants are safer in a 2009 Honda Accord than in many other vehicles. Nonetheless, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives the 2009 Honda Accord Sedan only three stars for rear side impacts, but awards it five stars in all other tests.

According to Car and Driver, the 2009 Honda's "body structure...utilizes Honda's 'Advanced Compatibility Engineering' designed to better disperse energy upon impact in a frontal collision, which essentially means occupants are better protected if encased in the eighth-generation Accord."

Cars.com reports that the 2009 Honda Accord is equipped with "six airbags, including side-impact airbags for the front seats and side curtain airbags," as well as "Honda's Vehicle Stability Assist electronic stability system, all-disc antilock brakes and active front head restraints"—all standard equipment.

ConsumerGuide reports another safety positive: "visibility is good all around in all models" of the 2009 Honda.


As is the case for most Hondas, the 2009 Honda Accord provides excellent levels of safety.

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.
