Honda Sensing Technologies
Compelling technology features come standard in every Civic Coupe, and when you upgrade to the high-end Touring trim, you’ll receive the remarkable Honda Sensing safety package, too! It’s also worth noting that Honda LaneWatch, a driver-assistance feature that can help you check your blind spot, is standard on the EX-T, EX-L, and Touring trims.
- Lane Keeping Assist System: Whether you’re drifting along a city street or barreling down a five-lane highway, you’ll enjoy the constant protection offered by the Lane Keeping Assist System. This feature uses a system of cameras to keep track of your chosen lane, and if it notices that you’re changing lanes without signaling, it can re-center you.
- Road Departure Mitigation System: Part of the Civic Coupe’s processing power is devoted to monitoring the outside edge of the road. Moving onto the road’s shoulder can be especially dangerous, so the Road Departure Mitigation System automatically moves you back toward the centerline when it senses this possibility.
- Lane Departure Warning: Every time you drift close to the edge of your lane without activating your turn signal, you’ll receive a subtle Lane Departure Warning alert that lets you know to head in the opposite direction. When this alert is insufficient, the LKAS or RDM will go to work.
- Forward Collision Warning: The Civic Coupe’s Forward Collision Warning can act as another line of defense against unsuspected obstacles that you encounter on the road. When you’re at risk of colliding with an object in your path, you’ll be notified of the danger with an audio alert. In emergencies, the Civic Coupe will also deploy the Collision Mitigation Braking System (see below).
- Collision Mitigation Braking System: No one has perfect vision or awareness on the road, but the Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) can help to compensate. If it detects danger and determines that the driver isn’t prepared to stop, it will deploy your breaks automatically, slowing or halting your motion as appropriate to avoid a collision.
- Adaptive Cruise Control: Everyone appreciates the utility of cruise control, but when traffic is bad, the traditional feature can be more trouble than it’s worth. With Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, you’ll be able to program your Civic Coupe to slow automatically in response to the presence of other vehicles—and speed up again when they’re out of your way!
