The 2018 Honda Accord is swinging for the fences this year for safety. While we only have some crash-test results, they're good so far.
Once we have a full picture, we'll assign this redesigned sedan a rating. (Read more about how we rate cars.)
Honda’s safety ace this year is standard advanced safety features on every Accord—even base trims.
The system, which the automaker calls “HondaSensing,” includes forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, active lane control, and adaptive cruise control. It’s on every model, built into the entry price, and it’s a great addition. We hope more automakers follow Honda’s lead.
The IIHS says that the Accord earns a Top Safety Pick award. It's held back from the top score thanks to its headlights, which rate "Acceptable" on most trim levels but just "Marginal" on the range-topping Accord Touring. Better headlights would earn it a Top Safety Pick+ award.
The federal government hasn't yet tested the 2018 Accord.
