Honda Civic Safety Features
If you’re interested in getting behind the wheel of the Honda Civic for your adventures throughout Santa Ana, Tustin, and Rancho Santa Margarita, you’ll benefit from the strong and efficient performance and the bevy of great amenities. However, it’s always a good idea to consider the Honda Civic safety features to know for certain that this vehicle is right for you.
At Norm Reeves Honda Irvine, we’re going to explore the Civic safety features, so you can have a full sense of the levels of protection offered by this compact sedan.
Active 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.
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 a rollover sensor to provide head protection for all outboard passengers.
Honda Sensing® Technology
The 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.
The Forward Collision Warning alerts the driver of a potential crash. The Collision Mitigation Braking System™ will apply enough brake pressure to slow the vehicle to reduce the severity of impact while the driver reacts and stops the vehicle. The Road Departure Mitigation System and Lane Departure Warning ensure that the vehicle stays in its lane and on the road. The Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow will keep a safe distance from the vehicle ahead at all times—even when traffic is slowing down.
