The redesigned 2013 Honda Accord Coupe has earned the highest safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a 5-star Overall Vehicle Score.
This adds to the already earned Top Safety Pick + from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
Art St. Cyr, vice president of product planning and logistics at American Honda, said:
“The 2013 Honda Accord truly excels in all areas, delivering the best overall safety ratings, while also providing exhilarating performance, outstanding comfort and top-class fuel economy.”
It is the only vehicle in its class to earn a NHTSA 5-star overall Vehicle Score and IIHS’s Top Safety Pick + rating with GOOD ratings in all test models.
The Honda Accord Coupe earned the 5-star Overall Vehicle Score by garnering a 5-star rating in each seating position in the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) frontal, side-barrier, and side-pole crash test categories, as well as a 5-star rollover rating.
The 2013 Honda Accord begins Honda’s application of the second generation of the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™ II) body structure. The reinforced frontal structure further enhances frontal crash energy management through a wider range of offset and oblique collision modes.
