    The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback is giving West Michigan drivers and families a lot to be excited about. With a commitment to safety on display in the design, engineering, features, equipment, and technology, through and through the Civic Hatchback helps drivers drive better and stay safer while travelling on the road.

Active Safety

Coming in five different trim levels, even the entry-level Civic Hatchback makes safety a priority with active safety features throughout its design and equipment. It’s no wonder that the Civic Hatchback received a 5-Star Rating from the NHTSA.*

  • Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control – This system ensures the Civic Hatchback stays stable when taking turns and can adjust from understeering or oversteering, even on slippery road surfaces.
  • Anti-Lock Braking System – This system helps prevent the wheels from locking up and keeps them actively engaged with contact with the road.
  • Electronic Brake Distribution – This system automatically and optimally applies varied braking pressure to individual wheels when needed based on road conditions, speed, or other factors.
  • Brake Assist – This system helps drivers come to a stop more quickly in an emergency braking situation.
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines – Backing in and out of tight spaces is much easier with this rearview camera with three angles to choose from, including wide, normal, and top-down.
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System – This system monitors tire pressure in each of the four wheels and comes with tire fill assist and location and pressure indicators.
  • Daytime Running Lights – These lights increase the Civic Hatchback’s visibility on the road no matter the weather or light conditions.
