Honda Accord 2008 Sedan - Safety !


The Accord has a well-earned reputation as a rolling showcase of Honda safety technology. This all-new Accord takes it to the next level, representing Honda’s evolving and comprehensive approach to safety.

Keeping You in Control
Every Accord comes equipped with standard systems designed to keep you on course and away from danger. Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) helps sense oversteer or understeer in an emergency situation, and then adjusts brake pressure at each wheel and/or reduces engine power to help restore driver control and keep you on course. Standard 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes (ABS), with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), helps you maintain control during hard braking. Properly inflated tires are crucial for safe operation, so the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) alerts the driver when a tire’s pressure reaches a significantly low level.

Protection is a Priority
Every Accord is also engineered to help protect you and your passengers when collisions just cannot be avoided. The 2008 Accord features all-new in-floor frame rails that improve crashworthiness over the already-impressive performance of the ’07 model. All Accord models also benefit from our Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure that disperses frontal crash energy over a wide area, keeping it away from passengers.

Surrounded in Safety
Every Accord also features standard front, front side and side curtain airbags to help prevent injuries in a collision. The front side airbags employ a new, larger two-chamber design, and the front passenger’s side airbag uses the Occupant Position Detection System to prevent deployment if a small-statured passenger is out of position in the airbag’s path. And new for ’08, active front head restraints help reduce whiplash injuries in a sufficient impact.

Top Safety Performer
Our advanced safety engineering is paying off. In fact, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has recognized the Accord Sedan as a 2008 "Top Safety Pick."
