Multiple news agencies have indicated that recently, Honda has announced that its 2013 Accord Coupe was the only model that got a 5-star Overall Vehicle Score after a battery of tests performed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
According to the reports, the vehicle has also achieved a “Good” rating in tests carried out by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The company has stated that this model comes with a series of new standard safety features including Back-Up Camera, Lane Departure Warning and Lane Watch assistance, Forward Collision Warning and SmartVent. According to the company, SmartVent is a series of front side airbags and side curtain airbags that have been redesigned to keep drivers and passengers from being injured in the most diverse of accident situations.
