Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2022 Honda Accord has a score of 78, implying a 0.044% chance of driver death (3.9% chance of injury).

Active safety features with Honda's Honda Sensing can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. The following active safety system is included even on lower trims/versions of the 2022 Honda Accord: Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS). Some safety features are optional on the 2022 Honda Accord--- although they add to the cost, one should consider the benefits of Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM) with Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) and Blind Spot Information System.

Another vehicle feature may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances. Optional side mirror turn signals alert others of your intention to turn or switch lanes allowing them to react accordingly, which can prevent accidents caused by not seeing a vehicle in the blind spot.

And it is about as safe as many comparable models.
