Six 2021 Honda Models Earn IIHS Top Safety Ratings

March 19th, 2021 by

At Serra Honda O’Fallon, we’re proud to be a part of a brand that strives to produce vehicles that give you the safest and easiest driving experience possible. Honda vehicles have proved to be one of the safest with six of the new 2021 Honda models earning a Top Safety Pick (TSP) rating or better for 2021 from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Those models include the 2021 Accord, Civic Sedan and Hatchback models, CR-V, Insight, and Odyssey, which earned the highest possible rating of “GOOD” in all six IIHS crashworthiness tests. Along with these models being highly rated, the Honda Sensing® driver-assistive and safety technology, which is featured in these models, earned the “SUPERIOR” ratings for vehicle-to-vehicle frontal crash prevention.

For a vehicle to earn the 2021 TSP award, the vehicle must earn a “GOOD” crashworthiness rating for each test mode. A top-rated vehicle must offer front crash prevention that earns an “ADVANCED” or “SUPERIOR” rating in both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian testing, while still testing “GOOD” or “ACCEPTABLE” in all other tests. Outside of the IIHS, every Honda model evaluated in the NHTSA’s 2021 model year NCAP testing has received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score. 

All of the new Honda models come equipped with Honda Sensing which features a comprehensive suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies. These features include forward-collision warnings, road departure mitigation, lane departure warnings, collision mitigation braking system with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, and more to ensure the safest, easiest driving experience for you. Honda vehicles are also built with Honda’s proprietary Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure to protect you from a variety of frontal collisions, along with advanced restraint systems, pre-tensioning front seatbelts, and airbags located in the front, side, knee, and side curtain panels.

We know that accidents can happen whenever you’re on the road, which is why Honda designed these models to endure any collisions, types of weather, or challenges that you may encounter, all while keeping you safe.
