These are provided to select vehicles each year by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and stand out among all other vehicles as attaining the pinnacle of protection technology.

The High Standards of Honda

In the words of John Mendel, executive vice president, American Honda Motor Co., Inc: “The fundamental notion of vehicle safety is evolving and with technologies like some of those in Honda Sensing, we are pursuing our vision to reduce and, ultimately, to eliminate vehicle collisions.”

Indeed, Honda vehicles continue to offer a broad range of active and passive safety features, as well as a state-of-the-art ACE (Advanced Compatibility Engineering) body structure and multi-angle rearview camera as standard. Honda continues to set the bar high in terms of safety.

The Top Safety Pick+ Award

Each year, the IIHS conducts hundreds of crash tests on new vehicles, evaluating each in terms of both crashworthiness and crash-avoidance and -mitigation features. Vehicles are provided with scoring ranging from “Good” to “Poor” in five main categories: moderate overlap front, small overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints.

To qualify for a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ rating, a vehicle must achieve a top rating of “Good” in all five crashworthiness tests, plus a rating of either “Advanced” or “Superior” for front crash prevention.
