2013 Accord Coupe joins Accord Sedan in earning 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from NHTSA; all Accord models now boast top overall NHTSA and IIHS safety ratings
The completely redesigned 2013 Honda Accord Coupe has earned the highest available safety rating – a 5-Star1 Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The 2013 Accord Coupe is the only vehicle in its class to earn a NHTSA 5-star Overall Vehicle Score and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating with GOOD ratings in all test modes. For model year 2013, all tested Honda models have earned a TOP SAFETY PICK or TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the IIHS (only the Civic Coupe, FCX Clarity and Fit EV have not been tested).
The Accord Coupe earned the 5-star Overall Vehicle Score by garnering a 5-star rating in each seating position in the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) frontal, side-barrier, and side-pole crash test categories, as well as a 5-star rollover rating. The 2013 Coupe joins the Honda Accord Sedan in earning an Overall 5-Star Safety Rating under NHTSA's testing.
In addition to its NCAP 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score designation, the 2013 Honda Accord Sedan is the only car in its class to earn a GOOD rating in all IIHS test modes, including the Institute's aggressive, new small overlap frontal crash test. Under the IIHS' testing program, the new small overlap frontal crash test—sometimes called a "narrow offset" test—is designed to replicate what happens when the front corner of a vehicle collides with another vehicle or an object such as a tree or utility pole at high speed.
Named "Best Subcompact for the Money" and "Best Hatchback for the Money"
The 2013 Honda Fit has won two U.S. News & World Report "Best Cars for the Money" awards. The highly-versatile and fun-to-drive Fit was named "Best Subcompact for the Money" and "Best Hatchback for the Money" among 2013 vehicles sold in the United States.
"The Fit brings truth to the concept that big things can come in small packages," said Mike Accavitti, vice president of national marketing operations, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "With an amazingly roomy interior, snappy styling, great driving dynamics and industry-leading Honda quality, Fit proves that small cars can provide value well beyond their size."
The "Best Cars for the Money" methodology combines quality and value data into a composite score. Within each of 21 award categories, the vehicle with the highest score is named the "Best Car for the Money" in that category. Quality is measured by the overall score a vehicle achieved in the U.S. News car rankings at the time the awards are published.
The rankings, compare cars on the basis of safety, reliability and a consensus of industry experts' opinions. Value is measured by a combination of a vehicle's five-year total cost of ownership and the average price paid for the vehicle at the time the awards are published.
Winner of multiple industry awards due to its class-leading safety scores, fuel economy ratings, versatility, residual value and overall excellence, the Honda Fit has built a loyal following over seven years and two generations. The 2013 Honda Fit earned a TOP SAFETY PICK rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), received a 2013 Residual Value Award from ALG and a 2013 Best Resale Value Award from KBB.com; was recognized as a "greener choice of 2013" by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE); and Fit is a seven-time Car and Driver magazine "10Best Cars" award winner.
