The Accord performed well in most areas but failed to match the best in its class. It drew criticism for the design of the area where driver and front passengerís knees might strike in an impact. Too many hazards were present, said testers. Child protection was good and the restraints used met most of Euro NCAPís performance benchmarks. The protection it gave pedestrians was good, if no match for its smaller range-mates the Stream and Civic, which each gained three stars. The Accord is bigger and so gains less from its windscreenís ability to cushion adult heads.
