Each year, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) evaluates each automotive segment to determine their TOP SAFETY PICK (TSP) and TOP SAFETY PICK+ (TSP+) vehicle choices. These models are tested in a variety of capacities to help families, such as those shopping for a new vehicle in San Jose, determine the best choice for their daily commute. The Honda lineup is proud to announce earning six different TSP or TSP+ titles across their lineup.

All of these new Honda models are for sale in San Jose at your local Honda of Steven's Creek dealership. Stop by today to take one for a test drive.

The Honda Cars and SUVs that Earned Titles

For the sedan segment, the 2020 Honda Accord*, a sleek and stylish full-size sedan that offers both a traditional gasoline and hybrid engine, earned a TSP. Three different Honda Civic models**, the coupe, sedan, and hatchback, also earned TSPs, as did the Honda CR-V*** crossover SUV. Finally, the Honda Insight****, another midsize sedan on the lineup, earned a TSP+.

The safety ratings are determined based on a series of six crashworthiness tests developed by the IIHS. Because of the standard Honda Sensing® suite of driver's assistance and the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ enabled on these models, they eared SUPERIOR ratings for vehicle-to-vehicle frontal crash tests. This system is now available or standard on every single Honda model in the lineup.
