Honda: Engineered for Safety

We all love awards. The team at Tracy Honda is no exception. But we appreciate awards most when they’re about the safety of our vehicles. We’re most proud when we know the cars we provide keep our customers, friends and families safe.

So we’re extremely honored that last month three Acura models and five honda models were awarded the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) Top Safety Pick+ (TSP+) award while one Honda earned the TSP awarded. The vehicles awarded were:

The IIHS TSP Award

IIHS awards are among the most coveted awards in the industry. The IIHS tests evaluate two aspects of safety: crashworthiness—or how well a vehicle protects its occupants in a crash—and crash avoidance and mitigation—or how well a vehicle’s technology can prevent a crash or lessen its severity. To receive the TSP+ rating, vehicles must score “Good” in all six IIHS crash-test categories—including the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests—an “Advanced” or “Superior” rating for available front-crash prevention tech in both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian scenarios, and headlights with a “Good” or “Acceptable” rating for standard equipment. The Acuras and Honda delivered in all categories.   

All the vehicles awarded feature AcuraWatch™ or Honda Sensing® driver-assistive and safety technology as standard equipment. These suites of safety and driver-assistive technologies include Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Pedestrian Detection; Forward Collision Warning; Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) incorporating Lane Departure Warning (LDW); Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS); and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).

In addition, all Acura and Honda vehicles benefit from Honda’s proprietary Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, designed to protect occupants in a wide variety of frontal collisions, along with advanced supplemental restraint systems, such as pretensioning front seatbelts, and front, side, knee and side-curtain airbags.
