Honda Earns Six 2021 IIHS Top Safety Awards

IIHS Top Safety Pick

Six 2021 Honda models earned a 2021 Top Safety Pick or Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The 2021 Honda Accord, 2021 Honda Insight and 2021 Honda Odyssey all earned the highest possible Top Safety Pick+ achievement, while the 2021 Honda CR-V and 2021 Honda Civic Sedan and Hatchback earned the Top Safety Pick award when equipped with LED headlights. Every new Honda model tested also earned the 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the NHTSA.† So no matter which new Honda you choose, enjoy peace of mind knowing that you are driving a reliably safe vehicle.

The Honda Sensing® Collision Mitigation Braking System™ also earned a Superior rating for frontal crash prevention. Honda Sensing® is standard on all new Honda models and features a comprehensive suite of driver safety and assistance features. These advanced safety features include:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Pedestrian Detection
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
  • Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) incorporating Lane Departure Warning (LDW)

The redesigned, Top Safety Pick+ winner, 2021 Honda Accord stands out for its upscale cabin, incredible fuel efficiency and reliably safe ride. The classic sedan has been modernized to include all of the latest technology like Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, Wi-Fi capability, Head-Up Display, and navigation. Enjoy a premium cabin with available heated and ventilated seats, leather trim and wireless charger. Starting at just $25k, the new Honda Accord is an affordable, stylish and high-performance option for most drivers.

For those with families, the 2021 Honda Odyssey offers not only IIHS Top Safety Pick+ assurance, but a bold new exterior and a cabin that is adjustable and roomy. Use the available Magic Slide® 2nd-row seats to create more room for cargo or people and the hands-free power tailgate to help you load it all with less struggle. Of course, families love the latest technology, too, so Honda offers new infotainment and CabinWatch® and CabinTalk® that allow the front row to keep an eye on rear passengers and cargo on a large touchscreen and speak to those in the very back through the connected rear speakers. Not only will you save your voice, but you can drive safer by keeping your eyes on the road.

The 2021 Honda Insight is a fully hybrid option, boasting 55 mpg* and plenty of performance thanks to the two-motor hybrid system with extra torque so you can accelerate with the best of them. This stylish sedan offers premium features like a power moonroof, heated front seats, remote entry, and a spacious, leather-trimmed cabin for five. Since its battery is tucked under the rear seat, you still get plenty of cargo room.

The 2021 Honda CR-V, Honda Civic Sedan and Honda Civic Hatchback just need to be equipped with the available LED headlights to achieve their Top Safety Pick rating, making them fun, capable options that don’t compromise on safety. The new Honda CR-V is perfect for families ready to adventure or those who have lots of gear and like to head off the beaten path. The never-goes-out-of-style Honda Civic is as safe and reliable as ever. Opt for the sporty Civic Hatchback to enjoy superb handling and 174-hp, or choose the classic Civic Sedan for a vehicle that offers the best of all worlds – roomy, fun to drive, high tech, and of course, safe.

Honda has been known as a safe and reliable car brand for a long time, earning six 2021 IIHS Top Safety Pick awards is further proof. Thanks to the advanced safety features included in Honda Sensing® standard, every Honda offers a safer experience.
