Honda’s Safest Cars in West Michigan

  • 2016 Honda Civic

    Honda has pushed the world of auto safety forward year after year, and West Michigan drivers shopping around for the safest cars should have a couple of Honda models on their list. Each new vehicle has a suite of standard safety amenities that help a driver keep control over their vehicle and can mitigate the damage of an accident. The new Honda Sensing safety features raise accident prevention to new heights with radar and camera technology that can help your vehicle alert you to an accident before it happens.

    The safety awards are speaking for themselves, too; these cars are earning some of the highest marks in auto safety.

Modern and Advanced Safety Technologies

Honda’s team of safety engineers are working day in and day out to build some of the safest cars possible, and in our current lineup, you can see that in two different ways: the standard safety features and the new Honda Sensing safety package.

Each new Honda vehicle comes standard with safety features that include:

  • Three-point seat belts
  • An array of airbags
  • A frame built to mitigate damage in a collision
  • Stability control
  • Traction control
  • Rearview camera

These features have helped recent Honda models earn safety awards from the government’s NHTSA safety tests. The suite of Honda Sensing features takes car safety to a new level with amenities like:


Collision Mitigation Braking System

Honda Cars

Perhaps the two most famous Honda vehicles are cars, and they have always been some of the safest cars on in the auto world. The 2016 Honda Civic and 2016 Honda Accord have access to some of the most advanced safety technologies, and it shows with the awards they have brought home:

  • The 2016 Honda Accord Coupe and Sedan have both earned 2016 Top Safety Pick+ awards from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety when equipped with Honda Sensing safety features.*
  • The Accord Coupe and Sedan both also earned 5-Star Overall Vehicle Safety Ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.**
  • The 2016 Honda Civic is still waiting on results from the NHTSA and the IIHS, but the preceding model year took home its fair share of safety accolades, including a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Safety Rating from the NHTSA.**
    Both of these cars have Honda Sensing features available at every trim level, letting drivers have the peace of mind of those advanced safety technologies without requiring any trim level upgrades.

Honda Crossovers

The crossover might be the most popular family vehicle among West Michigan drivers right now, as there are a variety of sizes and capabilities that help fit the individual needs of a family. You’ll be happy to know that all three of Honda’s crossovers have earned high marks when it comes to safety.

  • The 2016 Honda Pilot earned a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety award when equipped with the available Honda Sensing safety features.*
  • The 2016 Honda CR-V also scored a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ when equipped with Honda Sensing features.*
  • The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration awarded all three of Honda’s crossovers their highest safety award, the 5-Star Overall Vehicle Safety Rating,** after examining performance in crash tests and testing advanced safety features. Winning this safety award in its first model year is incredible news for the 2016 Honda HR-V.

These awards come from features drivers expect—the airbags and the seat belts—but also from design elements like adaptive head restraints that help reduce the risk of neck-related injuries or Honda’s underlying body structure that is built to direct energy away from passengers in an accident.

Honda Minivans

There’s just one Honda minivan, but it has been and continues to be one of the safest cars for West Michigan families. The 2016 Honda Odyssey is available in six different trim levels, allowing drivers to choose from a wide range of connectivity and comfort technologies—as well as some of the advanced safety tech features we mentioned above.

Available features like forward collision warning and Honda’s LaneWatch blind-spot warning system combine with classic safety amenities like three-point seat belts and smart airbags to bring home some top safety awards.

  • The 2016 Honda Odyssey was named a 2016 Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety when equipped with the minivan’s available forward collision warning system.***
  • The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the 2016 Odyssey their highest rating, a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Safety Rating,** for its performance in crash tests.

Like the cars and the crossovers, the 2016 Odyssey also comes equipped with a standard rear camera with guidelines to help make backing up and parallel parking easier.
