Safety scores remain the gold standard of automotive safety, and the Honda Civic lineup continues to garner top crash test ratings. Just check out how the 2018 lineup fared after extensive government crash testing by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):

  • 2018 Honda Civic Si: 5-Star Overall Safety Rating*
  • 2018 Honda Civic Sedan: 5-Star Overall Safety Rating**
  • 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback: 5-Star Overall Safety Rating‡

How Does the Honda Civic Deliver Such Strong Crash-Test Ratings?

It all comes down to the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure. This Honda-Exclusive technology employs the latest engineering innovations to crumple intelligently in the event of an accident, directing any collision energy away from the passenger compartment in the process.

ACE™ is complemented by a variety of other safety features, including:

  • Full suite of airbags
  • 3-Point Seat Belts with Automatic Tensioning System
  • Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH)

All of this helps increase safety in case a collision does occur, while Honda Sensing® helps decrease the chance of a collision with the following features:

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