Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) II Body Structure
The Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE)II body structure features our highest-grade steel yet. ACE is a Honda exclusive body design that utilizes a network of connected structural elements to distribute frontal crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle. This helps reduce the force transferred to the cabin and evenly disperse the forces transferred to other vehicles involved.
Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
All Accord models feature 4-wheel disc brakes with anti-lock brakes (ABS). ABS pulses the brakes to help prevent wheel lockup and help the driver retain steering control during hard braking. The system also features Brake Assist, which helps the vehicle come to a stop sooner during emergency braking, and Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), which distributes brake force among the four wheels based on how much load each wheel is bearing.
Dual-Stage, Multiple-Threshold Front Airbags (SRS)
The Accord is equipped with dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags (SRS). These airbags are capable of being inflated at different rates depending on crash severity, seat-belt usage and/or other factors. Frontal airbags are designed to supplement the seat belts to help reduce the likelihood of head and upper body injuries in frontal crashes.
 Airbags inflated for display purposes.
SmartVent Front Side Airbags
In the event of a moderate-to-severe side impact, the SmartVent side airbag is designed to deploy and inflate quickly to maximize potential protection for properly seated occupants, helping to protect the driver's or front passenger's upper body from injury, or vent before fully inflating if an occupant is in the side airbag deployment path, thereby decreasing the likelihood for an airbag-related injury.

Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
A small camera mounted at the top of the front windshield or, in the case of the Touring model, a radar system mounted in the front grille can detect the presence of vehicles in front of you. When the FCW system calculates that you are at risk of a collision, it immediately activates visual and/or audible alerts.
 FCW cannot detect all objects ahead and may not detect a given object; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and other factors. System operation affected by high interior heat. FCW does not include a braking function. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.
Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
A small camera mounted at the top of the front windshield tracks lane markings on the road, and it can detect when the driver is making an un-indicated lane departure. Visual alerts will light up on the driver’s instrument panel and the system also can provide an audible warning.
 LDW only alerts drivers when lane drift is detected without a turn signal in use. LDW may not detect all lane markings or lane departures; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and road condition. System operation affected by extreme interior heat. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.
Outboard Rear Seat Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH)
The outboard rear seats feature the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) mounting system for use with compatible child seats.
Side Curtain Airbags
The side curtain airbag with rollover sensor module is positioned along the side of the headliner and comes standard on all Accord models. In the event of a sufficient side impact, this system will activate to help provide protection for both the front and outboard rear occupants on the side of impact.
 Airbag inflated for display purposes.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
Drivers often unintentionally drive with underinflated tires, and that impairs tire responsiveness and reduces fuel economy. This system monitors the pressure in all four tires, and alerts the driver when the air pressure in any tire becomes significantly low.
 For optimal tire wear and performance, tire pressure should be checked regularly with a gauge. Do not rely solely on the monitor system. Please see your Honda dealer for details.
Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA®) with Traction Control
Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA®) is standard on all Accord models. During an understeer or oversteer condition, it can brake individual wheels and/or reduce engine power to help restore your intended course.
 VSA is not a substitute for safe driving. It cannot correct the vehicle’s course in every situation or compensate for reckless driving. Control of the vehicle always remains with the driver.
