The 2018 Honda Civic Sedan Safety

The 2018 Honda Civic Sedan is the latest model of this beloved companion on the road for generations of drivers. And with an unwavering commitment to safety, the 2018 Civic is a great choice for drivers and families in the Detroit area. With passive and active safety features, as well as driver-assistance technology, the Honda Civic Sedan:

  • Helps drivers drive better and more safely on the road
  • Mitigates impacts with Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure and warning systems
  • Features a multi-angle rearview camera

ACE Body Structure

As Kelley Blue Book points out, over the years the Civic “has become the benchmark for the compact class.” It sets the bar high in several key areas, and safety is definitely among them. In fact, the Civic Sedan’s commitment to safety is built into its very structure. Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure is an innovative and uniquely Honda design. In the event of an impact, it works to keep everyone inside safe by:

  • Utilizing a network of frontal frame structures
  • Absorbing crash energy and distributing it away from the occupants
  • Reducing transferred force from other vehicles involved, minimizing damage on both sides of the impact.


Airbags are a passive safety feature that are reliably there for you should the worst happen. The Civic Sedan features sophisticated airbags at the ready to cushion drivers and passengers in the event of an impact. These include:

  • Advanced Front Airbags
  • SmartVent Front Side Airbags
  • Side Curtain Airbags with Rollover Sensor

Seat Belts

The Civic Sedan is equipped with reliable seat belts and features that ensure everyone can buckle up and stay safe while enjoying the ride.

  • Three-Point Seat Belts at All Seating Positions
  • Front Three-Point Seat Belts with Automatic Tensioning System
  • Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH)
  • Lower Anchors (2nd-Row Outboard)
  • Tether Anchors (2nd-Row All)
  • Driver and Front Passenger Seat-Belt Reminder

Active Safety

Active safety features, as opposed to passive features like airbags and seat belts, work while you’re driving to help the Civic Sedan keep good tractive control with the road, come to a safe and complete stop in emergency braking situations, and ensure the Civic stays visible to oncoming traffic. These features include:

  • Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control
  • Anti-Lock Braking System
  • Electronic Brake Distribution
  • Brake Assist
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System
  • LED Daytime Running Lights

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera

Every Civic Sedan model comes equipped with a multi-angle rearview camera that helps drivers see the surroundings of the Civic Sedan before backing up. And with guidelines as standard and dynamic guidelines as an upgraded feature, drivers can maneuver in and out of tight spots much more easily. The camera features three views:

  • Normal View
  • Wide View
  • Top-Down View

Honda LaneWatch

In addition to the Honda Sensing package, another driver-assist technology is Honda LaneWatch. It uses a small camera mounted on the front passenger’s side mirror and displays a live video feed of the activity going on in the driver’s blind spot when a right lane change is signaled.

  • Live video displays on the 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen inside the cabin.
  • Drivers can see up to four times more than using the mirror alone.
  • Comes standard starting on the EX model.
