The 2017 Honda Accord Sedan Safety
According to a review by U.S. News, “Few other cars epitomize the concept of “a good car” more than the Honda Accord.” That’s thanks in part to the commitment to safety that is built right into the Accord Sedan, offering families reliability and reassurance year after year. From the body structure to the airbags, there are some safety features that might go unnoticed at first glance but contribute to the Accord Sedan’s ability to protect its occupants.
- Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) Body Structure – Designed to absorb and distribute crash energy away from the passengers, the body structure is the Accord Sedan’s first defense in mitigating any impact.
- Airbags – Includes dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags, SmartVent front side airbags, and side curtain airbags with a rollover sensor.
- Childproof rear door locks – Drivers and parents can rest easier knowing that the Accord Sedan’s childproof rear locks will keep small hands from opening doors.
Coming standard on all Accord Sedan models is a long list of active safety features. Daytime running lights come standard on the entry-level model and see an upgrade to LED lights as you explore the higher trims, making the Accord Sedan more visible to other drivers on the road no matter what the time of day or weather conditions. Other active safety features you can expect to find in the Accord include:
- Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with Traction Control – The Accord Sedan gets extra traction control and stability on the road with the VSA system, helping the Accord grip the road firmly and evenly even on sharp turns, no matter the weather and road conditions.
- Multi-Angle Rearview Camera – With normal, wide, and top-down views, drivers can see all of their Accord Sedan’s surroundings, which makes backing in and out of tight spaces much easier.
- Anti-Lock Braking System – This system prevents the brakes from locking up and skidding across slippery or wet roads.
The Honda Sensing suite of technology is available to help drivers drive better on the road. It includes sophisticated systems that are there for the driver every step of the way.
- Lane Keeping Assist System – If the Accord Sedan starts to sway or go over lane lines on the road, this system can nudge the steering to bring it back to the center of the lane.
- Adaptive Cruise Control – Drivers select a desired speed and distance interval with the vehicle in front of them, and this system can adapt and balance between them, keeping the Accord Sedan naturally within the flow of traffic.
- Collision Mitigation Braking System – This system engages the brakes and steering in order to mitigate any object or other vehicle that is dangerously approaching the Accord Sedan, mitigating any impact.
- Road Departure Mitigation System – If the Accord Sedan goes over road markings, this system can engage the brakes and steering in order to keep the vehicle from going off the road.
Other Driver-Assist Technology
In addition to the Honda Sensing features, the Accord Sedan also offers:
- Honda LaneWatch – A small camera mounted on the passenger’s side mirror displays a live video feed when a right lane change is signaled, allowing the driver to see up to four times more in the blind spot than using the mirrors alone.
- Auto High-Beam Headlights – These lights switch between high-beam and low-beam headlights depending on the headlights or taillights ahead of the Accord Sedan, offering the highest visibility without any driver input.
