Honda Is Among The Best In The Industry For Safety Awards From The Insurance Institute For Highway Safety

Twelve new Honda models earned the highest safety rating possible from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety!

Middletown, NY (I-Newswire) November 29, 2012 - The highest possible recognition from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is "Top Safety Pick," and twelve new Honda models received this designation. What's even more impressive is that the IIHS applied a new set of very strict guidelines last year, and the twelve vehicles still earned this top recognition. The full lineup of new Honda models is available at Middletown Honda, located at 5210 Rt 211 East in Middletown, NY.

The IIHS distinguishes vehicles that perform the best in terms of protecting drivers and passengers engaged in rollovers, as well as front, rear, and side collisions. The following new Honda and Acura models earned the Top Safety Pick designation:

• Honda Fit - subcompact four-door hatchback
• Honda Insight - four-door hatchback hybrid
• Honda CR-Z - two-door, two seat hatchback hybrid
• Honda Civic - compact coupe or sedan
• Honda Accord - midsize coupe or sedan
• Honda CR-V - crossover SUV
• Honda Pilot - midsize crossover SUV
• Honda Odyssey - minivan
• Honda Ridgeline - midsize pickup truck
• Acura TSX - compact entry level luxury sedan
• Acura TL - midsize luxury sedan
• Acura MDX - luxury crossover SUV

The amount of distinctive awards Honda and Acura vehicles have achieved for safety this year places the automaker among the very best in the automotive industry. The new, stricter protocol and assessment systems used by the IIHS place stringent demands on manufacturers in order for vehicles to receive the Top Safety Pick designation.

Honda has gone to great lengths to strive for exceptional safety outcomes on its vehicles. Their accomplishment is part of a conscious effort they have made to reaffirm their brand as a safety leader in the industry.

On all new Honda and Acura vehicles, standard safety features include traction control, vehicle stability assist technology, anti-lock brakes, and comprehensive airbags with passenger detection. Most Hondas also come with rollover detection. Apart from the Ridgeline pickup, all of the Honda and Acura IIHS Top Safety Picks are outfitted with Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structures; the Advanced Compatibility Engineering design uses a system of linked structural components to distribute collision force more evenly throughout the vehicle.

Middletown Honda proudly represents this safety-conscious manufacturer. Interested parties can test drive any of their large selection of vehicles. Call or visit their dealership for more information.
