2013 Honda Accord Named to Safest Cars List

The 2013 Honda Accord is among the safest cars on the road according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Only the 2013 Ford Fusion and 2013 Nissan Altima were rated as highly.

According to this article, “The 2013 Honda Accord and 2013 Nissan Altima also earned the top five-star overall rating in federal crash tests, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.”

“Honda prides itself on designing and manufacturing some of the safest cars out there,” said Tod McLaughlin of Apple Valley Honda in Wenatchee. “The Accord has always rated as one of the safest cars, so it’s really no surprise that the 2013 is one of the top three safest according to the IIHS.”

But lest you think all of these cars are of equal safety, don’t be me mistaken. Only one of these cars passed the new test IIHS put cars under, the small offset test, which simulates the car hitting a post on the out third of the hood (where most reinforcement is). You guessed it, only the 2013 Honda Accord passed that test.

Stop by Apple Valley Honda, Sims Honda or Northwest Honda dealership to see if the safety of the 2013 Honda Accord is right for you!
