  • Honda Civic

    One of the driving world’s most reliable cars delivers abundant cutting-edge features model year after model year. Not surprisingly, among these top-notch amenities, the 2017 Honda Civic’s safety features are state of the art and technologically advanced. Behind the wheel of the popular Civic, drivers can breathe a bit easier knowing they and their passengers are protected by the Civic’s array of cutting-edge safety and driver-assist features. Keep reading as we explore them in-depth!

Standard Safety

Among the Civic’s safety and driver-assist features are various standard offerings that can be found across the entire Civic lineup. High-tech standard safety features offered onboard the Civic include:


Honda Civic Vehicle Stability Assist

Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control: When the Civic is braking, accelerating, cornering, or otherwise maneuvering, the Vehicle Stability Assist system applies independent braking power to the wheels that need it and, at the same time, manages the car’s throttle, ignition, and fuel systems to keep the Civic safely in its intended travel path. The VSA system additionally offers a limited-slip differential effect for the car’s front wheels by delivering brake force to a wheel that is slipping, which directs driving force to the other wheel that has more traction.

Honda Civic Brake Assist

Brake Assist: Another standard safety feature, Brake Assist, is a function of the Civic’s Vehicle Stability Assist system. Brake Assist detects hard braking or emergency braking scenarios and almost immediately supplies extra braking power to ensure the car has maximum stopping ability. This system not only serves up max braking power but can also shorten braking distance.

Honda Civic Rearview Camera

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: A multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines also comes standard aboard the Honda Civic, delivering three different views of the car’s exterior to help drivers operate more safely in reverse. Images from the camera are displayed on an accompanying screen inside the car’s cabin, and guidelines on the image help drivers better judge the distance between the Civic and objects in its path.

Honda Civic ACE Body Structure

ACE Body Structure: Another advanced safety feature found onboard each Civic model is the Advanced Compatibility Engineering, or ACE, body structure, which underpins the Civic’s construction. ACE body structure bolsters passenger protection in the event of an accident by more evenly dispersing crash energy across the front of the car.

Honda Civic Airbags

Advanced Airbag System: The Civic’s standard airbag system includes SmartVent front side airbags as well as side curtain airbags with a rollover sensor. SmartVent front side airbags are specially designed to help protect the upper torso of the driver or front passenger when side-impact collisions occur. The rollover sensors that are part of the side curtain airbags can sense the difference between a rollover and a side-impact collision and deploy the airbags accordingly.

Honda Civic Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Tire Pressure Monitoring System: Driving with a low tire can not only cause damage and affect your car’s performance, it can be dangerous—and quite often a driver doesn’t know a tire is low until it becomes completely flat. The Civic’s standard tire pressure monitoring system constantly monitors the car’s tires, and if the air pressure drops significantly in any tire, it immediately alerts the driver so the affected tire can be attended to.

Safety Upgrades

In addition to the many standard safety features offered onboard the 2017 Civic, this outstanding sedan also features various advanced safety and driver-assist features that are offered as optional upgrades or come standard in the highest Civic trim level. Included among them are:

Honda Civic Collision Mitigation Braking System

Collision Mitigation Braking System: A Collision Mitigation Braking System is available for all the Civic trims and comes standard in the top-level Civic Touring model. This cutting-edge feature monitors for potential collisions and alerts the driver when an approaching crash situation is detected ahead. If an unavoidable collision is sensed, the system will apply braking power to help reduce the impact or even avoid it altogether.

Honda Civic Lanewatch

Honda LaneWatch: Standard in all but the Civic base model, Honda LaneWatch employs a camera that is mounted on the passenger-side exterior mirror to deliver live video feed of what is happening in the passenger-side lane adjacent to the Civic. When the driver signals right, either to turn or change lanes, the LaneWatch camera goes into action to show the driver whether or not the coast is clear on the vehicle’s right side.

Honda Civic Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control: Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow is available for all the Civic trims and comes standard in the Civic Touring. This feature lets drivers enjoy the benefits of cruise control even when there are other vehicles on the road. Drivers can input a desired following speed and distance and this system will automatically maintain that, braking when necessary to maintain a safe space between the Civic and the vehicle ahead of it.

Honda Civic Road Departure Mitigation System

Road Departure Mitigation System: Available for all the Civic models and standard in the Civic Touring, the Road Departure Mitigation System uses a small camera that can detect road markings, and the system alerts drivers if it senses the car is about to leave the roadway. This system can even use steering power and braking force to help keep the Civic safely on the road.
