Honda Boasts Most Top Safety-Rated Vehicles Built in U.S.
Today, Honda announced that it has the most top-safety rated vehicles made in America, even more than American automakers such as Ford and Chevy. Specifically, four of Honda’s American-built 2014 models have earned the distinction of Top Safety Pick+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS): the 2014 Honda Accord Sedan, the 2014 Honda Accord Coupe, the 2014 Honda Civic Sedan, and the 2014 Honda Odyssey. These top-rated vehicles are produced at plants in Ohio, Indiana, and Alabama.
Not only does Honda build the most top safety-rated vehicles here in the States, but the brand also has the most top safety-rated vehicles built around the world—six in total, with the addition of the 2014 Acura RLX and the 2014 Acura MDX, both of which also were named a Top Safety Pick+ as well.
“Honda and its passionate engineers are delivering crash safety test performance at industry-leading levels as a result of our strong and continuous focus on innovation in safety technology and vehicle design,” said Art St. Cyr, vice president of product planning and logistics at American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “When you add safety leadership to our world-class durability, inventive packaging and top-class fuel efficiency, you’ve got the makings for a really smart choice for American car buyers.”
Honda hasn’t just been successful in the realm of safety, however. According to the EPA’s most recent report on fuel economy trends, Honda is the full-line automaker with the best overall fuel efficiency. Oh, and did we mention that Honda has more vehicles still on the road after 25 years than any other automaker? Yeah, you can go ahead and pick your jaw up from the floor now.
Congrats on all your achievements, Honda!
