You don't have to pay a fortune to drive a safe, midsized car, especially if you're buying a 2013 Honda Accord. And its safety doesn't stop at protecting the driver and passengers.
Features such as the forward-collision warning system, which uses cameras to detect vehicles in front, and the lane-departure warning system, which alerts the driver when the vehicle is drifting, are designed to prevent accidents. The 2013 Honda Accord 2-door is a Top Safety Pick+, meaning it had ratings of "good" in at least 4 of 5 categories and no less than "acceptable" in the fifth.
The Accord body is constructed using high-grade steel and uses structural elements to reduce the impact from a frontal crash, and it comes equipped with front air bags and SmartVent front side air bags that are designed to decrease the chances of an air bag-related injury. Standard on all the Accord models is Vehicle Stability Assist with traction control, which helps put you back on course if you over- or understeer.
Like most vehicles on the market, the Accord also has anti-lock brakes, and it has a tire-pressure monitoring system.
