The Safety Inside the 2018 Honda Civic Sedan

The 2018 Honda Civic Sedan prioritizes safety with features, engineering, and driver-assist technology. It has earned high safety ratings and crash test scores, making it a great option for Capital Region drivers who are looking for a safe vehicle that can provide:

  • Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure
  • Highly rated and reliable airbags and seat belts
  • Advanced driver-assist technology

Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure

Standard on every model of the 2018 Civic Sedan is a commitment to safety built right into its engineering. Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) is designed to keep drivers and passengers safe inside the Civic Sedan. It works by:

  • Utilizing a network of frontal frame structures
  • Absorbing crash energy and distributing it away from the occupants inside
  • More evenly dispersing the force from the other vehicle involved and therefore minimizing damage to both parties
