There is nothing more important than the human cargo you carry around, and the 2016 Honda Accord, for sale in Portland at Dick’s Honda in Hillsboro is one of the safest on the road.

For further information on the all-new Honda Accord, for sale near Beaverton, please call your premier Oregon Honda dealer at (866) 973-3693.

Featuring a host of new standard and available technologies, the ninth-generation Accord Sedan and Coupe offer a wide range of active and passive safety and driver assistive features and technologies. For 2016, all Accords can be equipped with Honda Sensing™, among the most comprehensive suites of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies in the midsize class. Honda Sensing includes:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)1 with sensor fusion technology
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW)2
  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW)3
  • Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS)4
  • Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)5
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)6

Honda Sensing is available as a standalone option on LX, LX-S, Sport, EX and EX-L trims and offered as standard equipment on the Touring trim.

Also, all 2016 Accords feature a standard Multi-Angle Rearview Camera and Expanded View Driver’s Mirror. Also, for the first time, Touring trims feature new auto high-beam headlights, which enhance nighttime visibility and driving convenience by automatically defaulting to the high-beam setting and switching to low beams when an oncoming vehicle is detected.

Collision safety engineering in the Accord is also significantly enhanced, thanks to a next generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure. More extensive use of high-tensile steel allows a high level of protection to be provided while reducing the weight of vehicle structures. An important evolution of the previous ACE system, ACE improves occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions. Like other Honda models, the new Accord also has an impact-absorbing front body design to help attenuate energy in the event of a frontal collision with a pedestrian.

Inside, passive-safety features include a total of six airbags, including dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags, improved new SmartVent™ front side airbags, and side curtain airbags. The SmartVent side airbag construction helps mitigate the risk of excessive airbag deployment force while eliminating the need for the prior Accord’s Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS).

The 2016 Accord targets the highest available crash safety ratings – a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) and a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) crash tests.
