  • 160-Watt Audio System with Four Speakers – This audio system will pump out crystal-clear sound to keep drivers and passengers entertained and comfortable, no matter how long the journey.
  • 5-inch Color LCD Screen – Navigate through controls with this intuitively designed interface and touchscreen.

Honda Sensing and Other Driver-Assist Technology

The Honda Sensing suite is a package of driver-assist technology that helps drivers driver better and safer on the road.

2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Lane Keeping Assist

Lane Keeping Assist System – If the Civic Hatchback starts to sway in the lane or go over the lane lines without a signal change, this system can nudge the steering wheel to return the Civic Hatchback to the center of the lane.

2017 Honda Civic Hatchback Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control – Drivers can select a desired speed as well as a distance interval with the vehicle ahead on the road, and this system does the rest, balancing between the two in order to keep the Civic Hatchback within the natural flow of traffic.

Honda Civic Hatchback Road Departure Mitigation
