2011 Honda Accord Sedan Earns 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score

The 2011 Honda Accord Sedan earned the best possible vehicle score given by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The Accord earned the top score of five stars in each of NHTSA’s combined safety rating categories.

Receiving five stars in overall frontal crash safety, overall side crash safety and rollover resistance, the Accord is the first vehicle to achieve five stars in each of the three rating categories. Those three ratings are then combined into an overall rating that is convenient to new car shoppers.

The Overall Vehicle Score is new to the federal government’s New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) and is being applied to all 2011 models. The Overall Vehicle Score combines the results from the three categories and then receives a score ranging from one to five stars.

Dedicated to provide safety for everyone, Honda used the Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure to its 2011 Accord. ACE is an exclusive body design that enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal crashes.

Not only is Honda’s 2011 Accord safe, but it provides a unique balance of style, performance, efficiency and value, along with updates and improvements. The entire Honda Accord lineup now has increased fuel economy, enhanced exterior and interior styling and the new Special Edition trim level.

From its interior to its exterior, the 2011 Accord has a great balance of value and luxury. The interior offers all of the standard features, along with updates on all models. These updates include: new seat fabrics, updated instrumental panel design and more-refined accent points throughout the interior. The exterior updates convey an upscale and powerful presence. Updates include: new styling on the front grille, front bumper, and rear deck lid, also a new wheel design for EX models.
