Honda Civic Technology Features

  • 2016 Honda Civic

    The 2016 Honda Civic technology features make it one of the most competitive small cars in West Michigan. Engineers at Honda have equipped the Civic with some of the most advanced connectivity and safety features in the auto world, and we want to share them with you to smash the myth that all small cars are created equal.

Connectivity Features

It’s often necessary to stay connected while on the road, but these days that means more than just having a Bluetooth connection for wireless phone calls. The Civic has the following technology features available across its five trim levels:

  • Bluetooth: Once just used to make hands-free phone calls, Honda’s Bluetooth connectivity does that and syncs your smartphone to the Civic for streaming audio and more.
  • Display Audio Touchscreen: The available 7-inch touchscreen interface easily manages your media and vehicle settings with just a few taps, and it brings with it some advanced connectivity options.
  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay: These advanced phone syncing technologies seamlessly integrate your Android device or iPhone with the Civic. Be sure to watch our video on this page explaining one of the many features of Android Auto.
  • HondaLink: With a compatible smartphone, the HondaLink telematics system transforms your Civic into a digital hub that easily integrates vehicle services, music, social media, and more.
  • Navigation: The available satellite-linked navigation system takes advantage of real-time traffic reporting and adjusts your route to account for traffic and construction delays. Search points of interest in familiar or foreign locales to feel right at home.

Advanced Safety Technology

Technology is about more than just fancy connectivity features and touchscreen interfaces; it helps make the 2016 Honda Civic one of the safest cars in West Michigan. Advanced safety technology features available on the Civic include a multi-angle rearview camera as well as the Honda Sensing package that adds on these accident prevention features:

Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control: Radar sensors monitor the vehicles around you and adjust cruise control automatically, making those long drives a piece of cake.

Forward Collision Warning

Forward Collision Warning: This system monitors the traffic around you, much like the adaptive cruise control, and alerts you if it senses a forward collision is likely. It can even engage the collision mitigation braking system to slow or stop the Civic.

Collision Mitigation Braking System

Collision Mitigation Braking System: When an accident seems imminent, the Civic can actually apply its own brakes to slow the vehicle down or stop it entirely.

Road Departure Mitigation

Road Departure Mitigation System: If the Civic senses that it is about to move onto the shoulder and leave the road, this system alerts the driver and works to bring the car back to the pavement.

Lane Departure Warning

Lane Departure Warning: With a camera installed on the front of the vehicle, the Civic monitors the lane markings and alerts you if it senses a drift from them.

Lane Keeping Assist

Lane Keeping Assist System: This safety system helps fight driver fatigue and will actually work to keep your wheel centered to ensure the Civic stays in its lane.

Comparing to the Competition

When it comes to modern amenities, the Honda Civic technology features are tough to beat. We encourage all of our drivers to dive into our comparison tool and see how the competition stacks up to a Honda, but here’s a look at how some key competitors compare when it comes to tech:

  • Toyota Corolla: Toyota’s sedan doesn’t even include cruise control as a standard feature, let alone more modern amenities like a rearview camera system, automatic climate control, or remote keyless entry. See our full 2016 Toyota Corolla comparison for more.
  • Ford Focus: As with the Corolla, the Ford Focus comes up short on features as well. Even though it delivers with some modern tech, drivers still have to upgrade for features like cruise control and automatic climate control.
  • Subaru Impreza: The Impreza comes the closest to the Civic on tech features but still falls short, requiring upgrades for automatic climate control and not allowing advanced safety features onto their base model, like those included in Honda Sensing.
