Irvine, CA | Honda Civic Safety RatingActive Civic Safety Features

The Honda Civic is outfitted with a variety of braking systems that can assist you in maintaining full control and stopping power of the vehicle. The Anti-Lock Braking System includes a few components like the Vehicle Stability Assist™ with Traction Control. This feature can detect wheel slip and it’ll provide brake pressure to the affected wheel to help it regain traction.

The Civic also includes Electronic Brake Distribution, which varies the amount of force applied to each brake to give you better control when braking. The Brake Assist can recognize panicked braking, which will then assist by applying full force to the brakes, so you can stop the vehicle.

The standard Tire Pressure Monitoring System does exactly what it says, monitors your tire pressure and alerts you when it’s time to put more air in your tires.

During those misty and hazy mornings, the available Fog Lights will help you see much clearer.

Passive Safety Features

The Civic also offers plenty of protective components and features that can help ensure that you and your passengers remain safer in the event of a collision. The exterior is designed with the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ Body Structure, which can actually absorb the energy generated during a collision and disperse it away from the passengers.

The interior includes several airbag systems that are meant to provide enough cushioning to help keep the passengers safer in the event of a collision. The vehicle includes the advanced front airbags, which can adjust the inflation pressure based on the severity of impact. The Civic also includes SmartVent® Front Side Airbags, and Side Curtain Airbags with Rollover Sensor, to provide better head protection for all outboard passengers.

Honda Sensing® Technology

Honda Civic Safety RatingThe Honda Civic comes standard with Honda Sensing® driver-assisting technology features. These features utilize exterior-mounted sensors to measure proximity to objects ahead while factoring the rate of approach to provide warnings of imminent collisions:

  • Forward Collision Warning

The Forward Collision Warning alerts the driver of a potential crash, so you have time to apply braking pressure.

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™

The Collision Mitigation Braking System™ will apply enough brake pressure to slow the vehicle and reduce the severity of impact while the driver reacts and stops the vehicle.

  • Road Departure Mitigation System

The Road Departure Mitigation System and Lane Departure Warning ensure that the vehicle stays in its lane and on the road. It does this by monitoring the lane markings and providing gentle steering corrections to get you back on track.

  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow

The Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow will help keep you a safe distance from the vehicle ahead at all times—even when traffic is slowing down. You’ll have the ability to set a following interval behind vehicles traveling ahead of you, and the system will automatically slow down or speed up your Civic.

The available Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock® feature helps ensure you never accidently leave your Civic unlocked, protecting it from unwanted intruders.

Improved Visibility

The Multi-Angle Rearview Camera comes equipped with standard guidelines, so you have a full view of where your vehicle is, and where your vehicle is going, as you attempt to parallel park or reverse out of tight spaces. This will help ensure you never accidently bump into something again.

When you shift into reverse, a real-time image of the area behind your Honda Civic is shown on the display, and you’ll have the ability to toggle between wide view, normal view, and top-down view. Fixed guidelines come standard, but the available Dynamic Guidelines will move as you turn the steering wheel.

The standard Auto High-Beam Headlights deliver improved visibility when traveling at night, by automatically toggling between low and high beams depending on your surroundings. This way, you and everyone else on the road will have a more relaxing experience, since you won’t have to be concerned about accidently blinding fellow drivers with your high beams.

Honda Civic SafetyPerformance Features and Engine Specs

The performance features found in the Honda Civic work hand in hand with the safety features to help keep you nice and secure when you’re out on the road.

Under the hood, you’ll find that the standard In-Line 4-Cylinder engine puts out 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque capability. For a bit more oomph, the available In-Line 4-Cylinder with Turbocharger engine will get you 174 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque capability.

Both engines are paired with a Continuously Variable Transmission for an exceptionally smooth and easy-to-handle ride.

The standard Hill Start Assist feature ensures you won’t roll backward when you’re traveling up steep inclines from a stop.
