The 2005 Honda Accord includes a host of safety features as standard equipment on all models. All Accord sedan and coupe models are equipped with dual-stage front airbags (SRS), front side airbags with passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS), side curtain airbags and Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) - the only car in its class to offer this level of standard safety features. The Accord earned a 5-star frontal impact rating from the U.S. government and a "Best Pick" from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
For the 2005 model year, Honda introduced its third generation hybrid IMA system to the Accord V-6 Sedan. The Accord received a new hybrid system that combines a high performance VTEC V-6 engine with Honda's super-efficient Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) and Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) cylinder deactivation technology to deliver performance on par with the current 240-hp Accord V-6 Sedan while delivering fuel economy comparable to that of a four-cylinder compact-class Civic Sedan.
