The Accord is one of Honda’s oldest and most recognizable nameplates, especially here in the Philippines. It’s been in the local market since the ’90s, and has since been a steadfast competitor in the executive midsize-sedan segment.
For 10 generations, the Accord has consistently provided performance, style, and comfort, but there’s one more aspect in which it has excelled: safety. And it’s a trait the all-new model upholds, after recently garnering a five-star rating from the New Car Assessment Programme for Southeast Asian Countries (ASEAN NCAP).
The Accord tallied an overall score of 91.79 out of 100—49.07 for the adult occupant protection, 23.28 for child occupant protection, and 19.44 for safety assist technologies, to be exact. The tests conducted include a frontal-offset impact test, a side impact test, and an evaluation of the vehicle’s safety features.
The latest iteration of the Accord has been equipped with the Honda Sensing safety technologies, highlighted by Honda’s Smart Parking Assist System and the LaneWatch feature, a multi-view camera system, a cross-traffic monitor, and a driver attention monitor. Other safety features include vehicle stability assist, hill-start assist, emergency stop signal, an electric parking brake, automatic brake hold, and six airbags.
