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" [sedan]

On the safety side, there’s some conflicting information regarding the 2010 Honda Accord. The Accord has been an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick, with top "good" scores in all of that agency’s categories; yet in the federal government’s crash tests, the Accord Sedan got a dismal three-star score for rear-passenger protection in side-impact tests and the Accord Coupe received an imperfect four stars for driver side-impact protection.

However, 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.

Popular Mechanics notes that the Accord packs "enough airbags to cushion the fall of the Holy Roman Empire," and they refer to the new dual-chamber, side impact airbags as a "safety breakthrough."

Car and Driver points to the Accord’s “Advanced Compatibility Engineering” body structure, which is designed to "better disperse energy upon impact in a frontal collision."

ConsumerGuide reports another safety positive: "visibility is good all around in all models" of the 2010 Honda.

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.
