Across their 2018-2019 model lineup that includes sedans, crossovers, hybrids, all-wheel drive models and more, Honda has earned the top safety ratings from both the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Of the Honda models that were tested, all of them received an NCAP 5-Star Overall vehicle safety rating from the NHTSA, while seven models earned the Top Safety Pick and Top Safety Pick+ Awards from the IIHS for excellent headlights and preventative collision systems.




Top Safety Picks

For a vehicle to earn the Top Safety Pick or Tops Safety Pick+ title from IIHS, they must meet a criteria that includes a “good” score of crashworthiness, a “superior” score in frontal collision protection, and an “acceptable” or “good” rating of available headlights. The Honda models that earned these top honors include:

  • 2019 Honda Insight – Top Safety Pick+
  • 2019 Honda Accord – Top Safety Pick2019 Honda Pilot Collision Mitigation
  • 2019 Honda CR-V – Top Safety Pick
  • 2018 Honda Pilot – Top Safety Pick
  • 2019 Honda Pilot – Top Safety Pick+
  • 2019 Honda Odyssey – Top Safety Pick
  • 2019 Honda Ridgeline – Top Safety Pick


NCAP Overall Vehicle Score

Every Honda model that was tested earned the top 5-star rating for the NCAP Overall Vehicle Score. The Honda models that have been recognized for the safety they provide include:


Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure

Honda’s superior crashworthiness ratings is partly due to its innovative body structure. The Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) Body Structure is present on every Honda model and utilizes a network of frame structures that absorb crash energy and distributes it away from the occupants sitting inside the cabin. It also minimizes the amount of force transferred to the other vehicle involved in the collision, keeping everyone safer on the road.


Honda Sensing

The Honda Sensing suite of driver-assistive technology warns, prevents, and mitigates impacts and collisions. The Honda models equipped with Honda Sensing, including frontal collision prevention, earn the top safety ratings.
