Honda Commitment to Safety
Honda has a long history of leadership in the development of advanced technologies designed to enhance the safety of all road users, including automobile occupants, motorcycle riders and pedestrians. Today, Honda is working toward its vision for a “zero-collision society” and is targeting a 50 percent reduction in fatalities in its vehicles by 2020, compared to 2000 levels, and zero fatalities in Honda vehicles by 2040.
Toward this goal, the company is broadly applying its Honda Sensing™ suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies that can help mitigate the potential for or severity of a collision. Thanks in part to the widespread application of Honda’s next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, Honda is also among the industry leaders in earning top collision safety ratings from the U.S. government and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), including top IIHS collision-safety ratings for Honda’s five top-selling U.S. models – Accord, Civic, CR-V, Pilot and Odyssey.
