IIHS Picks 7 Honda Pre-Owned Vehicles as Teen-Friendly
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has put together its first-ever list of safest used vehicles for teenagers, and a great many Honda pre-owned vehicles have been named as ideal choices for first-time drivers for their safety and reliability.
Honda pre-owned vehicles named by the IIHS as some of the best choices below $20,000 include the Honda Accord Sedan (2012 and later), Accord Coupe (2013-14), CR-V (2012 and later), Element (2007 and later), and Honda Odyssey (2011 and later).
The Honda Pilot (2006 and later) and the Honda Odyssey (2005-10) were included on the list of good choices for teen drivers under $10,000.
“Enhancing the safety of our customers and the quality of our products is a top priority for Honda,” said Art St. Cyr, vice president of product planning and logistics at American Honda. “Our long-term commitment to enhancing safety and durability makes Honda an ideal choice when shopping for safe, reliable transportation, new or pre-owned, for all drivers including teens.”
For vehicles to be considered best choices by IIHS, they were required to earn “good” ratings in the IIHS’ side crash protection, head restraints, and roof strength crash tests. To be considered a good choice, vehicles were required to score acceptable or better in side crash protection and head restraints tests.
