In order to receive the Top Safety Pick, the 2013 Honda coupe had to pass each of the NHTSA’s safety tests with top marks. As a result of the tests, the Accord Coupe has been proven to offer optimum safety whether the driver and passengers are in a frontal, side-barrier, and side-pole type crash, or even if they roll over.
Another prominent vehicle safety rating organization, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, also recognized the vehicle for its achievements in passenger crash security. The IIHS recently started to use a “small overlap frontal crash” test, which has proved a difficult challenge for automakers to meet. So far, the 2013 Honda Accord Coupe is the first and only vehicle in its category to achieve a ranking of “Good.”
Each Honda Accord Coupe comes equipped with a number of safety features including active front head restraints, side curtain airbags, front seat airbags, antilock disc brakes, and stability/traction control. There are also other safety features available at other trim levels such as a lane-departure warning system and forward-collision warning system.
One innovative feature on the Accord Coupe is an available LaneWatch blind-spot monitoring system. When turn signals are engaged, the vehicle’s eight-inch touchscreen will display a feed from a small camera located in the car’s side mirrors. This allows a full view of the car’s sides so drivers can double check their blind spots with confidence before changing lanes.
