The 2014 Honda Accord is a great pick for a family car, as in addition to acing some of the toughest crash tests, it offers some breakthrough safety items that you might not expect to see in an affordable model.

The Accord has been one of the few new 'IIHS Top Safety Pick+' vehicles; meaning that it achieves top 'good' scores in frontal, side, and rear impact tests, as well as in the new, tougher small overlap frontal impact test. It also achieves a top five-star overall score from the federal government (albeit with four stars for frontal impact).

All Accord models come with four-wheel disc brakes, including Electronic Brake Distribution and Brake Assist, plus stability control, and hill start assist. And in addition to all the expected airbags, the Accord features a new SmartVent technology for its side airbags that eliminates the need for fussy occupant-position detection systems. Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, and Adaptive Cruise Control systems are all available on the Accord.

Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, and Adaptive Cruise Control systems are all available on the Accord, and a cool LaneWatch Blind Spot Display provides a wide view of the passenger side of the vehicle on the Multi-Information Display (i-MID) screen the moment you flick the turn signal. It's truly one of the coolest new features to debut this past year.

LED headlamps are also offered at the top of the lineup, and they're the first ever in a Honda, but daytime running lamps are included in all V-6 models and LED brake lights are fitted to EX-L and Touring models.

Thanks to the Accord's low beltline and thinner pillars, outward visibility is already a bit better than with other vehicles in this class. Those thinner pillars are made possible thanks to the Accord's next-generation ACE body structure, which uses 56-percent high-tensile steel.


 

Conclusion

There's an extensive list of available active-safety features; and a new, stronger structure contributes to crash-test ratings that are better than any other affordable mid-size 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.
