The 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid matches its gas sibling in many ways, including crash-test performance. In National Highway Traffic Safety Administration testing, the Accord Hybrid earned a five-star safety rating, the agency’s highest score; that matches the regular version’s five-star report card.
The overall five-star score is composed of individual scores of up to five stars in each of NHTSA’s crash tests for front-impact, side-impact and rollover collisions. In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety testing, the non-hybrid model earned the Top Safety Pick award, the agency’s second highest rating. It earned good scores in all areas of IIHS testing and a superior rating for front-crash prevention; its headlights only qualified for an acceptable rating, however. IIHS hasn’t yet tested the hybrid version.
