Look at the specs of the 2016 Honda Accord, and it quickly becomes clear that both the sedan and coupe have an extensive list of safety features. As such, it should come as no surprise that the Accord has received top safety ratings. The NHTSA awarded the 2016 Accord 4-door model 5 out of 5 stars while the IIHS gave it the designation of being a Top Safety Pick+, its highest honor. Here are just some of the top features that helped the Accord receive these high ratings.
Honda Accords Forward Collision Warning
The Forward Collision Warning system is by far one of the best safety features on the Honda Accord for 2016. This feature will alert you if it feels that you are in danger of colliding with the vehicle in front of you. It comes standard on the Touring trim and is optional on all others.
Honda Accords Collision Mitigation Braking System
The Collision Mitigation Braking System is able to completely stop your Accord Sedan if it senses that a collision is about to occur with the vehicle in front of you. It will take this action if the collision cannot be avoided, and this feature helped the Accord earn its Top Safety Pick+ status.
Honda Accords Lane Keeping Assist System
The Lane Keeping Assist System helps you stay in the middle of the lane at all times. If you begin to drift out of your lane and haven’t signaled that you are planning to change lanes, the system will automatically adjust the steering so you stay on track.
Other top safety features in the 2016 Honda Accord worth mentioning include Road Departure Mitigation System, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Lane Departure Warning, all of which are part of the Honda Sensing suite. The team at O’Daniel Honda in Omaha, Nebraska, can go over these and other Accord safety features with you in more detail.
