2019 Honda Ridgeline Receives IIHS Top Safety Pick Rating

2019 Honda Ridgeline IIHS Top Safety Pick

The 2019 Honda Ridgeline is a pickup truck that manages to stand out from its segment, especially when it comes to safety. This truck was recently named an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick when it is equipped with optional front crash prevention and specific headlights, making it the only pickup truck to earn this rating from the IIHS.*

 

Along with this safety rating, the Ridgeline also earned the top “Superior” rating from the IIHS for its available Collision Mitigation Braking System™. This system applies the brakes when a potential collision is detected on the road ahead and is part of the larger Honda Sensing® suite of safety technologies.

 

The Honda Sensing® package comes standard on the Ridgeline RTL-E and Black Edition Models. It includes features like Road Departure Mitigation, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, and Adaptive Cruise Control.

 

The Ridgeline is the seventh Honda model to be recognized by the IIHS. Along with this pickup truck, the 2019 Accord, CR-V, HR-V, Pilot, and Odyssey all received the IIHS Top Safety Pick title. The Insight was awarded the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ title. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has also given all 2019 Honda models that have been tested so far, including the Ridgeline, its top five-star overall vehicle score.

2016 Honda Civic

Early this month, the 2016 Honda Civic joined three of its fellow models on the 2016 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ list. The new Accord Sedan and Coupe, the CR-V, and the Pilot were also named to this list. The Top Safety Pick+ rating is given to vehicles that earn an “Advanced” or “Superior” score on their front crash test.

The Civic Sedan, also deemed the 2016 North American Car of the Year, offers a wide range of safety features in addition to receiving excellent crash test ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The Civic includes the Honda Sensing technology suite, which raises the bar for the compact car class. This suite includes driver assist technologies like a Collision Mitigation Braking System, Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, and several others.

Civic Sedans also come with Stability Assist with Traction Control, a rearview camera, and its Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure, which gives it unbeatable strength in crash situations. No wonder the Civic is considered one of the safest cars on the road!

Honda Sweeps Up Eight 2016 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Ratings

2016 Honda Pilot

2016 Honda Pilot – An IIHS Top Safety Pick+

It’s an important time of year for the auto industry. Now’s the time when the big-talkers are separated from the big-doers, the haves from the have-nots: it’s safety award season. And, Honda’s just cleaned up big-time.

Honda took home a whopping eight IIHS Top Safety Pick+ ratings for its Honda and Acura models, pushing them to the forefront of the industry.

Every year, the IIHS (or Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) rates all vehicles in terms of their overall safety and reliability. The two coveted titles, the IIHS Top Safety Pick and the IIHS Top Safety Pick+, indicate to consumers that a vehicle is top-notch in terms of crashworthiness and security. To earn a Top Safety Pick rating, a vehicle must be named “Good” or better in all five crashworthiness categories, and for that amazing little plus-sign (meaning they’ve gone above and beyond the IIHS’s strict safety standards), a vehicle must also score an “Advanced” or “Superior” rating in front crash prevention.

The eight winning Honda models are the Honda Accord Sedan and Coupe; the Honda CR-V; the Honda Pilot; the Acura ILX and RLX sedans; and the Acura MDX and RDX SUVS.

Each year, Parents Magazine and Edmunds.com join forces to create the definitive Best Family Cars list.

All three of these vehicles also earned a top safety rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and are all equipped with a standard rearview camera. Those safety features combined with Honda’s overall excellent design, reliable reputation, and technological innovations made these vehicles easy choices for the Best Family Car list. The awards also show the diversity of the Honda lineup—with a subcompact car, sedan, and SUV all making the list.

The Accord earned a place on the list for the third straight year, while the Honda Fit and CR-V were honored as a best budget car and a best crossover for families, respectively. All three vehicles come with tons of great features, many of them all new for the 2015 model year, so come see Avery Greene Honda to learn more about the lineup . With EarthDreams engine technology, elegant design, and fun and convenience for all, the Honda lineup is quite simply the best in the world.

2015 Honda CR-V

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has confirmed the new Honda CR-V is a 2015 Top Safety Pick+, the highest honor a vehicle can strive for in terms of safety.

Becoming a Top Safety Pick+ is no easy feat for any vehicle. The Honda CR-V had to score the highest possible rating of “good” in four of the IIHS’s crashworthiness evaluations—moderate front, side, roof, and head restraint—as well as a “good” or “acceptable” rating in the recently-added, rigorous small overlap front crash test.

It also needed to achieve a superior or advanced rating for frontal crash prevention, which it earned thanks to the new Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver assistive technologies. With helpful features like Forward Collision Warning and Lane Keeping Assist System, drivers behind the wheel of a Honda CR-V are not only safer but even less likely to crash in the first place!

Improve your safety on the road by visiting Avery Greene Honda and obtaining a Top Safety Pick+ Honda CR-V.
