Active safety features are responsible for regulating driving behavior and alerting you to danger. They’re what prevent hazardous situations and accidents from occurring, and the Honda Civic Sedan fits the following features as standard:
Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control: Adjusts throttle response and braking to maintain traction and stability.
Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD): Intelligentlydistributes braking power between your wheels for safer stopping power.
Brake Assist: Senses emergency braking situations and automatically applies more braking force.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS): Prevents blowouts by letting you know when you have too little or too much air in your tires.
LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL): Provides low-level illumination to make you more visible to other road users
Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Cycles between Normal, Wide, and Top-down viewing modes for safer and more convenient reversing.
Most drivers are never involved in a collision, but the Honda Civic Sedan does as the Boy Scouts do by being prepared. In the unlikely event of a collision, passive safety features will activate immediately to reduce the risk of harm.
One of Honda’s most celebrated breakthroughs is the ACE body structure, which crumples intelligently to direct harmful impact energy away from you and your passengers.
Further passive safety features, include:
Advanced Front Airbags (i-SRS)
SmartVent® Front Side Airbags
Side Curtain Airbags with Rollover Sensor
3-Point Seat Belts at all Seating Positions
Front 3-Point Seat Belts with Automatic Tensioning System
Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH)
Driver’s and Front Passenger’s Seat-Belt Reminder
Child-Proof Rear Door Locks
The Honda Sensing driver assistance suite brings together some of the industry’s most innovative and sought-after safety technologies. You’ll rarely even find them available with rival compact sedans, but the Honda Civic Sedan bucks that trend and fits them as standard across all trims.
Forward Collision Warning (FCW): Scans ahead to check for potential collisions, then provides visual and audio alerts when one is sensed to give you time to brake or change your course.
Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™): Should you fail to react to the Forward Collision Warning system in time, the vehicle’s brakes will be applied automatically to avoid the collision or reduce its severity.
Lane Departure Warning (LDW): A front-facing camera can read your position on the road. Start to leave your lane without signaling and a warning will alert you.
Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM): If you start to leave the road, your Honda Civic Sedan will sense what’s happening and respond with corrective steering pressure.
Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS): Fail to heed your Lane Departure Warning system and your vehicle will be automatically re-centered to prevent an accident.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow: Uses radar technology to measure the distance between your car and the one ahead, then adjusts your cruising speed to maintain a safe gap.
Available driver assistance technology includes:
Auto High-Beam Headlights: Your high-beams turn on and off automatically as cars are sensed approaching and passing at night.
Honda LaneWatch™: A live video plays from just below the side mirror to provide a complete view of your blind spot for safer lane changes.
