It also minimizes the amount of force transferred back to the other vehicle involved in the collision, making everyone on the road safer.

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines

The Civic Si Sedan comes equipped with a multi-angle rearview camera that allows drivers to check their surroundings before backing out. And with dynamic guidelines as an incorporated feature, drivers can maneuver in and out of tight spaces with ease. The camera comes with three different angles to choose from, each offering an optimal view for different driving situations.

  • Normal View – Check for a clear path behind the car before reversing.
  • Wide View – A wide view allows drivers to make sure there are no cars or pedestrians approaching the rear of the car on either side. 
  • Top-Down View – A top-down view is especially helpful when parallel parking.

Honda LaneWatch

Honda LaneWatch is another safety feature that drivers can expect to find inside. A small camera is mounted onto the passenger’s side mirror and displays a live video feed of activity going on in the driver’s blind spot when a right lane change is signaled. The video displays on the 7-inch Display Audio Touchscreen inside the cabin and allows drivers to see up to four times more than using the mirrors alone.
