The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has given a five-star crash-test rating to the two-door coupe version of the 2013 Honda Accord. The agency has also given the Accord sedan with a five-star overall rating. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has also named these models as Top Safety Pick+ vehicles.

The coupe did even better than the sedan in the New Car Assessment Program of the NHTSA. The coupe scored five stars in frontal, side, and rollover crash tests. In the side and rollover test, the Accord sedan had gotten five stars. However, it only received four stars in the frontal crash test.

The IIHS has given a “Good” rating to the 2013 Accord coupe in all the categories except when it got an “Average” score for the small overlap front test. The sedan got a “Good” rating for all tests. The Nissan Altima coupe, which is the main rival for the Accord coupe, wasn’t fully tested by the NHTSA but did earn five stars in the rollover crash test.

The 2013 Honda Accord coupe has a starting price of $24,140 including destination charges. The standard safety equipment includes front, front-side, and side-curtain airbags; stability control; a backup camera; and a tire pressure monitoring system. Buyers can get features like forward collision and lane departure warning as options.
