The 2016 Honda Accord sedan and coupe received a 2015 Top Safety Pick+ from the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the automaker announced. Vehicles earing the designation must receive a good rating in five crash tests and are available with optional front crash prevention.

In testing, the 2016 Honda Accord models earned a good rating in all five of the IIHS’ tests including small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side impact, roof strength, and head restraints and seats tests. Additionally, the 2016 Accord is available with the Honda Sensing suite of driver assistive technologies including Forward Collision Warning (FCW), which qualifies it for the 2015 Top Safety Pick+ designation.

Other driver assist features included in the Honda Sensing option include Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) with sensor fusion technology, Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM), and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).

“Our continued application of Honda Sensing technologies to more vehicles in our lineup is advancing our goal of reducing collisions and fatalities for everyone on the road,” said Jeff Conrad, Honda Division senior vice president and general manager, in a release.

Honda Sensing is a stand-alone option available on 2016 Honda Accord sedan and coupe models on every trim level from the base LX up to the LX-S, Sport, EX, and EX-L models and is standard on the top-of-the-line Touring model.
