At Honda, we strive to provide a high level of standard safety features to help ensure the safety of occupants, other drivers and even pedestrians. This added peace of mind helps our drivers maintain the confidence to enjoy every road to the fullest.
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 brake pressure when a panic stop is detected.
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.
When you take your foot off the brake, this feature is engineered to temporarily maintain brake pressure to help prevent your Civic from starting to roll backwards when stopped on an incline.
The highly innovative, next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure is engineered to help disperse frontal impact energy to enhance occupant protection, while more effectively controlling it in severe collisions, to help prevent intrusion into the passenger cabin.
The cabin of the Civic contains six standard airbags. It features i-SRS front airbags as well as side curtain airbags with a rollover sensor system, which are designed to deploy the side curtain airbags in the event of a rollover. Plus, it has SmartVent™ side airbags, which are designed to deploy safely in a manner that mitigate the risk of injury to out-of-position or smaller occupants.
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 designed 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 added peace of mind while you’re on the road.
The Civic helps prepare you for the unexpected with 3-point front seat belts with automatic tensioning system and 3-point rear seat belts.
The Civic features childproof rear door locks, as well as rear seat Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH), which give you a simple and convenient method to install compatible child safety seats without using the vehicle’s seat belt system.
Innovative pedestrian safety features include an energy-absorbing hood and front fenders and deformable wiper pivots.
