Standard Safety Features

The incredible Civic brings a host of standard amenities to the road. Included among them are various standard protective features, including:


Honda Civic Rearview Camera

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Drivers can operate in reverse with much greater confidence thanks to the multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines that comes standard onboard the Honda Civic. This camera system delivers three different views of the outside of the Civic, displaying these images on an accompanying screen inside the cabin. Guidelines overlaid on the images provide extra guidance to help drivers maneuver and judge the distance between the car and objects in its path.

Honda Civic Airbags

Advanced Airbag System: Among the components of the cutting-edge airbag system that comes standard onboard the Honda Civic are SmartVent front side airbags and side curtain airbags with rollover sensors. SmartVent front side airbags are designed to help protect the upper torso of front occupants during side-impact collisions. The rollover sensors that are part of the side curtain airbags can detect the difference between a side-impact collision and a rollover and will deploy the airbags accordingly.

Honda Civic Vehicle Stability Assist

Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control: The Civic’s standard Vehicle Stability Assist system with traction control supplies independent braking power to the wheels that need it during acceleration, braking, cornering, and other maneuvering. The system also simultaneously helps keep the Civic in its proper travel path by managing the throttle, ignition, and fuel systems. Vehicle Stability Assist further provides a limited-slip differential effect for the front wheels by providing brake force to whichever wheel is slipping, directing driving power to the wheel with more traction.

Honda Civic Brake Assist

Brake Assist: Brake Assist is a function of the Vehicle Stability Assist system and detects hard or emergency braking situations and almost instantly delivers extra braking power for maximum stopping ability. This system can also help shorten braking distance.

Honda Civic ACE Body Structure

ACE Body Structure: Each Honda Civic model also features Advanced Compatibility Engineering, or ACE, body structure. This body design enhances passenger protection when accidents occur by dispersing crash energy more evenly across the car’s front.

Honda Civic Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Tire Pressure Monitoring System: When a tire has low air pressure, the driver may not know it until it’s too late and the tire is completely deflated—and driving with a low or flat tire can not only cause damage but can be dangerous. Thanks to the tire pressure monitoring system that comes standard on the Honda Civic, drivers will be alerted the moment the system detects low air in any of the car’s tires so that corrective action can be taken.

Safety Options

The 2017 Civic further offers an array of state-of-the-art safety and driver-assist features that are available as optional upgrades or come standard in the higher trim levels. These cutting-edge technologies include:


Honda Civic Lanewatch

Honda LaneWatch: The Honda LaneWatch blind-spot display system comes standard in all but the base model of the Civic lineup. This feature utilizes a camera mounted on the passenger-side mirror to provide live video feed of that side of the Civic. If the driver signals right to make a right-hand turn or to change lanes, Honda LaneWatch is activated, showing the driver whether the right lane is clear.

Honda Civic Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control: Standard in the topmost Civic Touring trim and available for all of the Honda Civic models is Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow. This feature enables drivers to utilize cruise control features even in light traffic situations. Simply choose a speed and following distance and the system goes to work to automatically maintain them. This system can even provide braking power when it’s needed to keep a safe interval between the Civic and the car ahead of it.

Honda Civic Collision Mitigation Braking System

Collision Mitigation Braking System: A Collision Mitigation Braking System is offered as an available feature for all the Civic trims and is standard in the Civic Touring. This system monitors for potential crash situations and warns the driver when a potential collision is detected ahead. It also provides immediate braking power if it senses an unavoidable accident.

Honda Civic Road Departure Mitigation System

Road Departure Mitigation System: Also available for all of the Civic trims and standard onboard the Civic Touring model is a Road Departure Mitigation System. This system utilizes a small camera to detect road markings and notifies the driver if it detects that the Civic is about to leave the road. This system can even apply steering power and brake force to help keep the car on the road.
