Almost every vehicle Honda builds can claim either a “Top Safety Pick Plus” or “Top Safety Pick” rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
Every vehicle rated within the maker’s product portfolio gained one of the two ratings. Only the FCX Clarity hydrogen vehicle was excluded from the IIHS ratings. The ratings mean that Honda either tied or led the automotive industry in each of the segments rated by the IIHS.
Most notably, the 2013 Accord and Civic both earned the “Top Safety Pick Plus” rating in both sedan and coupe forms. As both a coupe and a sedan, the Civic earned the highest “good” rating in all tested categories including the newest small overlap test. The Accord did almost as well, scoring the same in all but the small overlap category as a coupe, where it earned an “acceptable” rating.
