The Accord saloon scored a maximum five-stars for adult safety in official Euro NCAP crash tests so Honda Accord Tourer safety should be no different. As well as the main safety features expected on this type of car, Honda also offers adaptive cruise control (which can maintain a set distance with the vehicle in front), a lane keeping assist feature which nudges the steering wheel back into line if the car strays too far away from the centre of the lane on the motorway and an anti collision feature which warns the driver of an impending accident (by tugging the seatbelt and chiming a warning) and begins braking with up to 90% of maximum pedal force.
The Accord Tourer has gone from one of the roomiest load carriers in its class to one that is merely above average. It has less luggage capacity with the rear seats in place to window height than the Accord saloon and is smaller than its main alternatives. The load area itself isn't very impressive either - there's an awkward shape where the suspension components intrude, basically cutting the boot in two halves and preventing wider items from fitting in.
