Accord scores well on safety

Mon, 02 Mar 2009
People looking at buying a car in the coming months may be impressed by the safety credentials of the Honda Accord.

In the latest round of Euro Ncap crash tests, the model came away with a maximum five-star rating.

This score takes into account the protection afforded to pedestrians and car occupants in the event of an accident, as well as any innovations that could help motorists avoid collisions in the first instance.

One such feature in the Accord is Motion Adaptive Electric Power Steering.

This system detects instability when conditions are slippery and prompts the person behind the wheel to steer in the correct direction.

Honda explained the input will barely be noticed by the driver but encourages them to act intuitively and stay in control.

In other motoring news, the manufacturer recently announced people buying a car would be able to pick up the all-new Insight for £15,490.
