The full picture on safety.
With an impressive array of standard safety features, every Civic is designed to help protect you and your passengers, no matter what model or trim. How? We’ll let you count some of the ways: next generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, 6 standard airbags, 4-wheel Anti-lock Braking System2 (ABS), Vehicle Stability Assist2 (VSA®) with Traction Control, whiplash-reducing front seat design, 3-point height-adjustable seat belts with front pretensioners and a 3-point rear centre seat belt. It’s simple: commitment to safety runs in the family.
Next generation ACE™ body structure
The next generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE) body structure is engineered to help disperse frontal impact energy to increase occupant protection. The ACE frame design also allows for collision compatibility between vehicles of different weights and sizes. And, through the use of more high tensile steel, the Civic is light while also having a strong structure. It’s a big reason why the Civic Sedan is the first compact car to be awarded the coveted 2013 Top Safety Pick+ designation from the IIHS.
Six standard airbags
Six standard airbags line the Civic’s cabin. It features side curtain airbags with a sensor engineered to deploy in the event of a rollover, and standard dual-stage, dual-threshold front airbags (SRS). Plus, it has Smartvent™ side airbags, which are designed to deploy safely in a manner that mitigates the risk of injury to out-of-position or smaller occupants.
To assist with safe stopping, the 4-wheel Anti-lock Braking System2 (ABS) helps you maintain control under hard braking conditions, while Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) helps to optimize braking power based on weight distribution inside the vehicle. In addition, Brake Assist further improves braking performance since it is engineered to apply full brake pressure when a panic stop is detected.
Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA®) with Traction Control
Vehicle Stability Assist2 with Traction Control senses and helps to correct oversteer and understeer scenarios to enhance handling and cornering stability, while Traction Control helps to minimize wheel spin when accelerating on loose or slippery surfaces, helping to inspire greater driver confidence.
Innovative pedestrian safety features include energy-absorbing hood and front fenders, and breakaway wiper pivots.
The Civic comes equipped with two Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) that offers secure child-seat restraint. It also features childproof rear door locks.
