Compare with other cars in the Large Family Car category

When Euro NCAP first tested family-sized cars in 1997 the Accord was not included; this test has been sponsored by Honda to enable a comparison to be made. The best of the original group scored four stars. The Accord has done well to match this. In the frontal impact, the bodyshell was stable but an unusual distortion of the rear floorpan caused concern over the seat belt compatibility with the three-year-old's child seat. A three-point automatic belt was fitted in the central rear seating position. The side impact performance was above average in this group.
