IIHS Top Safety Picks+
Honda has long been a name associated with reliability and safety, especially with recent features like the Honda Sensing® suite of safety systems in the field of driver assist and alert technology. Thanks to Honda’s research and development in this area, 2019 Honda models are starting to make a name for themselves when it comes to earning top-notch safety ratings. So far, the 2019 Honda Insight and 2019 Honda Pilot have already taken home the title of Top Safety Pick+ from the IIHS.
Requirements for achieving the top score from the IIHS have been increasingly more and more difficult to meet, with many vehicles on the market only qualifying for the standard Top Safety Pick title or no title at all. In order to qualify for the extra plus sign at the end of the title, Top Safety Pick+ vehicles need to pass all crash tests with flying colors, as well as pass evaluations for headlights and crash-prevention safety systems.
How They Performed
The 2019 Honda Insight was honored with perfect marks in every category from the IIHS, judged to have adequate illumination from its headlights with minimal glare. The 2019 Pilot came close, passing almost all crash tests with top ratings. Both vehicles earned Superior ratings for their respective Honda Sensing® crash prevention systems. 2019 Honda models continue to represent the brand’s commitment to safety.
