Sullivan Honda, Torrington's Honda dealership, is pleased to announce that several of Honda's top models have been recognized by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) as Top Safety Picks for the 2022 production year. Contributing to the top ratings, each of the six models achieve the highest possible rating of "GOOD" in all six IIHS crashworthiness tests. In addition, all feature Honda Sensing® driver-assistive and safety technology as standard equipment, earning "SUPERIOR" ratings for vehicle-to-vehicle frontal crash prevention. All fully tested Honda vehicles also earned top U.S. government crash-test ratings.

Honda is leading the way in automotive safety technology with Honda Sensing®, a comprehensive suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies consisting of Collision Mitigation Braking System™ with Pedestrian Detection; Forward Collision Warning; Road Departure Mitigation incorporating Lane Departure Warning; Lane Keeping Assist System; and Adaptive Cruise Control.

Additionally, each of these Honda models benefit from Honda's proprietary Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure, designed to protect occupants in a wide variety of frontal collisions, along with advanced supplemental restraint systems, such as pre-tensioning front seatbelts, and front, side, knee and side-curtain airbags.

For a vehicle to earn the IIHS Top Safety Pick, it must have "GOOD" crashworthiness ratings in all test modes, including in the challenging passenger-side small overlap test. A top-rated vehicle must also offer front crash prevention that earns an "ADVANCED" or "SUPERIOR" rating in both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian testing, as well as "GOOD" or "ACCEPTABLE" ratings for available headlights though TSP+ rated vehicles must achieve the same "GOOD" or "ACCEPTABLE" rating for their standard headlights. Separately, every Honda model that has been fully evaluated in the NHTSA's 2022 model year NCAP testing has received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score.
