Some of Detroit’s Safest Sedans Come from Honda

  • 2016 Honda Civic

    The 2016 Honda lineup includes two of the safest sedans available in the Detroit Metro area: the 2016 Honda Accord and 2016 Honda Civic. Honda has a reputation for building some of the safest cars on the market, and we think it’s important to showcase the sedans in particular, as there are many drivers who look to the sedan as their default family vehicle.

    A variety of standard and available features on the Accord and Civic help give them an edge when it comes to safety, and the results can be seen in the awards from the NHTSA and the IIHS.
