All Honda models were named IIHS Top Safety Picks in 2012.
Top Safety Pick+
"If you want a compact car with a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating, the 2013 Honda Civic is the only choice," said Art St. Cyr, vice president of product planning and logistics at American Honda. "We believe this is a distinct competitive advantage, especially as more and more consumers place a premium on crash rating performance."
The novel 2013 Honda Civic (Sedan and Coupe) has received the highest available safety rating of TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). This recognition makes the Civic Sedan and Coupe the first and only IIHS Small cars in the industry to earn a TOP SAFETY PICK+.
The Civic was the only compact car to recieve Top Safety Pick +.
The 2013 Honda Accord is the only car in it's class to receive the top safety pick and a high score on the newest IIHS frontal crash test.
