Advanced Honda Civic Sedan Safety Comes as Standard

The 10th generation Honda Civic Sedan has revitalized the compact segment, and The Car Connection notes that: “This year’s addition of active safety tech to all models makes the 2019 Honda Civic an even better choice.” Honda Civic safety features don’t just outpace what most drivers expect from the segment – most advanced features come as standard no matter how much you spend, including:

  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM)
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow

Long story short: Honda thinks all drivers deserve first-class protection.

Active Safety Features

Active safety features function throughout your drive. Most of the time, you’ll barely know they’re operating, but they’re responsible for preventing accidents in the first place. The Honda Civic Sedan fits a strong selection as standard across all trims.

  • Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control: Regulates engine output and selectively applies the brakes to maintain traction across adverse conditions and achieve perfect stability through corners.
  • Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD): Varies the amount of braking force applied to each wheel based on road conditions, driving style, and more.
  • Brake Assist: Senses an emergency stop and applies the brakes harder to bring you to a stop sooner.
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS): Having too much or too little air in your tires increases the chance of a blowout and impairs handling. TPMS lets you know when you need to top up or let air out.
  • LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL): By providing constant low-level illumination throughout the day, the Honda Civic Sedan increases your visibility to other road users.
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Enter Reverse and the Multi-Angle Rearview Camera activates automatically for safer, more convenient maneuvering. Viewing modes include Wide, Top-down, and Normal.

Passive Safety Features

Only a small percentage of drivers will ever need to rely on the Honda Civic Sedan’s passive safety features, but you’ll drive easier knowing they’re at your back. Passive safety features lie dormant, only springing into action in the event of a collision to help protect you and your passengers from harm.
At the core of your Honda Civic Sedan is an Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure. In the unlikely event of a collision, it will crumple intelligently to direct harmful crash-force energy away from the passenger compartment. 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

Driver Assistance Technology

Honda Sensing represents the cutting edge of safety technology, and the Honda Civic Sedan is fitted with those features as standard:

  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW): Monitors the road ahead to warn of potential upcoming collisions.
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW): Gauges your position on the road and provides a warning if you leave your lane without signaling.
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™): If a collision situation is detected, the brakes are applied automatically to avoid it or reduce its severity.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM): Reads common roads markers and provides an alert if you start to leave the road.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS): Applies corrective steering pressure when you fail to react to the Lane Departure Warning system.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow: Maintains a safe distance between your vehicle and the one ahead.

Available driver assistance technology includes:

  • Auto High-Beam Headlights: High-beams automatically toggle on and off when other road users approach and pass after dark.
  • Honda LaneWatch: Plays a live video feed of your blind spot area for safer lane changes.
