Six Honda Models Earn IIHS Top Safety Ratings

When you think of the Honda brand, what comes to mind first? For many, it may be reliability. For others, fuel economy or technology may be at the top of the list. But what if you found out that Honda’s true party piece was safety? The new Honda models for sale in Las Vegas may make you think about Honda in a new light with six IIHS Top Safety Pick awards.

Which Honda Models are the Safest?

When considering which new Honda models to buy, the six that made the IIHS’ list for top safety picks is a great place to start. Here you’ll find the 2020 Honda Accord, a trio of Honda Civic models, the Honda Insight, and Honda CR-V – staples of the Honda lineup that are now better than ever.

How Did These Honda Models Earn Their Safety Awards?

The IIHS highlighted these specific models because they come standard with the Honda Sensing suite of advanced driver assistance features. Honda Sensing rated as “SUPERIOR” regarding vehicle-to-vehicle crash prevention thanks to a wide array of intervention features. One of these is the Collision Mitigation Braking System, which automatically applies the brakes when a potential impact is detected. Forward Collision Warning will alert you ahead of automatic braking, while Road Departure Mitigation and Lane Keep Assist read road markings and use gentle steering assistance to help you stay where you belong on the road. It even rewards Honda’s Adaptive Cruise Control system as an added benefit as it helps you maintain a safe following distance to other vehicles on the road, and automatically slows you down with traffic even coming to a stop when necessary.

The other main component in Honda’s IIHS awards is the Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE™) body structure. This unique structure is designed to absorb impacts and direct energy around the passenger compartment to keep you safe should an impact occur.
