IIHS Safety Awards
The IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) conducts its own crash-testing and provides a select few models with a Top Safety Pick or Top Safety Pick+ award. They’re getting harder to earn, but Honda models keep making the grade.

- 2019 Honda Accord: Top Safety Pick
- 2019 Honda CR-V: Top Safety Pick

Once fitted with Honda Sensing® technology, all Honda models but the Honda HR-V (which wasn’t tested) were rated Superior in the IIHS Frontal Collision Protection segment.
