Safety Features in the 2020 Honda Accord
At Honda, we strive to provide a high level of standard safety features to help ensure the safety of occupants, other drivers and even pedestrians. With this added peace of mind, our drivers have the confidence to enjoy every road to the fullest.
To assist with safe stopping, the 4-wheel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) is designed to help you maintain control under hard braking conditions, while Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) helps to optimize braking power based on weight distribution inside the vehicle. In addition, Brake Assist is engineered to help improve braking performance by applying full brake pressure when a panic stop is detected.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System
To promote enhanced safety and fuel efficiency, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System is designed to continually check the air pressure in each tire. If pressure drops in any tire, the driver receives a dashboard alert.
Hill Start Assist
If you take your foot off the brake when stopped on an incline, this feature is engineered to temporarily maintain brake pressure to help prevent your Accord from starting to roll backwards.
Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA®) with Traction Control
Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control is designed to sense and help correct oversteer and understeer scenarios to enhance handling and cornering stability, while Traction Control is designed to minimize wheel spin when accelerating on loose or slippery surfaces, helping to inspire greater driver confidence.
Auto High Beam
The auto high beam feature automatically changes the low beam headlights to high beam headlights in certain circumstances to help improve your vision.
Next-generation ACE™ Body Structure
The highly innovative, next generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure is engineered to help disperse frontal impact energy to enhance occupant protection, while more effectively controlling it in severe collisions to help prevent intrusion into the passenger cabin.
Seat Belt Safety
The Accord helps prepare you for the unexpected with 3-point height-adjustable front seat belts with automatic tensioning system and 3-point rear seat belts.
Child Safety Features
The Accord features childproof rear door locks, as well as rear seat Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH), which give you a simple and convenient method to install compatible child safety seats without using the vehicle’s seat belt system.
Innovative pedestrian safety features include an energy-absorbing hood and front fenders and deformable wiper pivots.
8 Standard Airbags
The cabin of the Accord contains eight standard airbags, including new driver and front passenger knee airbags. It features an i-SRS front airbag system as well as side curtain airbags with rollover sensors designed to deploy in the event of a rollover. Plus, it has SmartVent™ side airbags, which are designed to deploy safely in a manner that mitigates the risk of injury to out-of-position or smaller occupants.
HondaLink™ Assist Automatic Emergency Response System
The HondaLink Assist Automatic Emergency Response System helps you get the help you need when you need it most. If the airbags deploy, your Display Audio System is designed to automatically attempt to put you on a call with an operator who will forward your location to first responders if needed. It works with any compatible Bluetooth®-paired phone as long as it has reception, does not require a subscription and gives you added peace of mind while you’re on the road.
