Next generation ACE™ body structure.
The next generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE) II body structure is engineered to help disperse frontal impact energy to help increase occupant protection. The ACE frame design is also engineered to allow for collision compatibility between vehicles of different weights and sizes. It was designed to pass the stringent IIHS small-overlap barrier crash test, allowing the Civic to become the first small car ever to pass it.
Six standard airbags
Six standard airbags line the Civic’s cabin. It features side curtain airbags that are designed 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 System* (ABS) is designed to help 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 is engineered to help improve braking performance by applying full brake pressure when a panic stop is detected.
Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA®) with Traction Control.
Vehicle Stability Assist* with Traction Control is designed to sense and help correct oversteer and understeer scenarios to enhance handling and cornering stability, while Traction Control is designed to minimize wheel spin when accelerating on loose or slippery surfaces, helping to inspire greater driver confidence.
Pedestrian safety features.
Innovative pedestrian safety features include energy-absorbing hood and front fenders, and deformable wiper pivots.
Child safety features.
The Civic comes equipped with two Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) that are designed to offer secure child-seat restraints. The Sedan also features childproof rear door locks.
HondaLinkTM Assist Automatic Emergency Response system.
The available HondaLink
* Assist Automatic Emergency Response System helps you get the help you need when you need it most. If the airbags deploy, your Display Audio System is engineered to automatically attempt to put you on a call with an operator who will forward your location to first responders if needed. It works with any compatible Bluetooth®-paired phone as long as it has reception, does not require a subscription and gives you peace of mind while you’re on the road.
