A New Step for Safety in Miami, Another Safe Honda Vehicle

It’s well-known know fact that many of Miami’s drivers aren’t the best, and although it is not a pleasant thought, it is important to have some peace of mind when it comes to the safety of your vehicle, in case you do happen to get in an accident in Miami sometime. IIHS, or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (the guys who do crash tests to figure out how safe new cars are) recently completed a new series of tests, and as you might have expected, a Honda came out on top.

In the newest crash test, IIHS tested the ability for SUV’s to withstand roof damage in the case of a rollover accident, which is a common and oft-deadly type of accident for SUV’s. According to figures from IIHS, over 10,000 Americans are killed in rollover accidents each year, and over 59% of SUV accident deaths involve rollovers- and although just 3% of all accidents involve rollovers, rollover accidents account for 1/3 of all auto accident deaths. Given these stats, it is apparent why this new test is so important.

In the small SUV’s category, IIHS tested 12 small SUV’s, including the Honda Element. The Element was one of only a few models to receive the top rollover rating of ‘good’ from IIHS, which means that the Element’s roof could withstand a weight of at least 4 times the vehicle’s weight before the roof crushed in 5 inches. Given these facts, it’s a little easier to drive without worry if you are behind the wheel of a Honda Element.
