Active Noise Control (ANC) and Active Sound Control (ASC) on both 4-cylinder and V-6 models counteract noise for a more serene cabin.

The Accord Sedan and Coupe offer the greatest range of active and passive safety and driver assistive features in Honda history. Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) is standard on all Accord models, and available new technologies include Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW). The Accord's Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) II body structure, standard on all models, helps improve frontal crash safety performance. This allows the Accord to be one of few midsize offerings to excel in the rigorous Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) small-overlap frontal barrier crash test, earning it the IIHS' coveted TOP SAFETY PICK+ crash safety rating. The Accord also obtained a top 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).3
