Standard Safety Equipment

Among the Honda Accord Sedan’s impressive safety offerings, a variety of protective features comes standard across the full Accord trim level lineup. They include:


Honda Accord Rearview Camera

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines: Each Accord Sedan model features a multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines to help drivers operate in reverse more safely. This system delivers live video feed of the area behind the Accord, providing normal, top-down, and wide angles to show drivers any obstacles behind them as they back up.

Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control: The Accord’s VSA with traction control system helps stabilize the car when cornering and in instances of understeer or oversteer. This system also regulates engine output and selectively applies braking power to help the Accord maintain traction on slippery surfaces.

Honda Accord Interior

Smart Airbags: The advanced airbag system offered onboard the Honda Accord includes SmartVent front side airbags and side curtain airbags with rollover sensors. SmartVent airbags are designed to deploy so as to reduce airbag-related injury risk to smaller passengers. Side curtain airbags with rollover sensors are made to distinguish a rollover from a side-impact collision and deploy accordingly.

Honda Accord

ACE Body Structure: Honda’s proprietary Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure is designed to bolster passenger protection and crash compatibility when frontal collisions occur. This exclusive body design helps distribute crash energy more evenly across the front of the vehicle and can even help more evenly distribute crash energy to other vehicles involved in an accident.

Honda Accord Brakes

Brake Assist: The Accord’s brake assist is a function of the Vehicle Stability Assist system and is designed to recognize hard or emergency braking situations, almost instantly applying additional brake force when it is most needed. Brake assist not only delivers maximum braking power, but it can also shorten braking distance.

Honda Accord 19 Wheels

Tire Pressure Monitoring System: Low or flat tires can cause costly damage, pose safety risks, and negatively impact vehicle performance. The Accord’s tire pressure monitoring system constantly keeps track of the car’s tire pressure levels and quickly notifies drivers of low or flat tires. This enables motorists to swiftly attend to the problem, thus reducing the potential damage of driving on a low or flat tire and mitigating related safety risks.
