2019 Honda Accord Safety
For many of us, the most important factor in a car isn’t how well it drives, or how cutting-edge the infotainment is, or how flashy its looks are; it’s how well the vehicle can keep our family (and ourselves) safe from harm.
The good news is that safety features keep advancing every year, making the cars we drive safer and safer. The 2019 Honda Accord is a great modern car, but how does it fare for safety? What are the safety features of the 2019 Honda Accord?
The 2019 Honda Accord is fitted hood-to-trunk with protective gizmos, including airbags, brake assist, electronic stability control, daytime running lights, child safety locks, traction control, lane departure warning and lane keeping assist.
In addition, it’s outfitted with the Honda Sensing® suite that we know and love. This compilation of modern safety includes a Collision Mitigation Braking System™, Road Departure Mitigation System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist System, and Traffic Sign Recognition.
Unconventional Safety Features
The 2019 Honda Accord is also outfitted with elements that may not be traditionally viewed as “safety features,” per se, but can end up enhancing safety nonetheless. These include LED low-beam headlights with auto-on/off and LED fog lights. These sleek gizmos not only help you see, but help you be seen by others. LED taillights ensure you’re visible from behind as well as in front.
The cause of safety is furthered thanks to an agile, tightly controlling ride. A Head-Up Display delivers vital information to your brain right within your line of sight (it’s projected on the lower windshield) so you don’t have to waste precious seconds looking down.
A multi-angle rearview camera and cross traffic monitor will alert you to what’s going on behind and to the sides of your ride. Finally, sensors in the rear bumper and warning icons located in both side mirrors make up the Blind Spot Information feature, which lets you know when vehicles are detected in your blind spot, helping you to feel better about that oft-hazardous task known as “changing lanes.”
