The 2017 Honda Civic Boasts Unrivalled Safety
The 2017 Honda Civic delivers peace of mind thanks to its 5-star safety rating from the NHTSA*, plus a strong selection of protection features. A range of available driver assistance technologies join the standard active and passenger safety amenities fitted as standard, and all are encased within a body that has been expertly crafted to resist damage and prevent harm.
From the second you fire up the engine of the 2017 Honda Civic, a number of top-notch activity safety features will be working tirelessly to keep you protected. Active features help prevent accidents from occurring in the first place, and the Civic delivers a comprehensive array of them as standard equipment, including:
- Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with Traction Control
- Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
- Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD)
- Brake Assist
- Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines
- Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
- LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL)
Drive systems such as VSA prevent slippage and keep you on course while features such as LED DRLs enhance visibility. You can even cycle through three separate viewing modes (Normal, Top-down, and Wide) to see exactly what’s behind you while reversing without having to crane your neck to look behind you.
The 2017 Honda Civic’s selection of standard active features is impressive, but the vehicle’s passive safety features are always waiting to step in if an accident should ever occur.
An Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure is the soul of Civic safety. If a crash should ever occur, the ACE body will crumple intelligently in order to direct collision energy away from the passenger compartment. At the same time, Advanced Front Airbags (i-SRS), SmartVent Front Side Airbags, and Side-Curtain Airbags will deploy in order to cushion you from harm.
It’s engineering features such as these that have allowed the 2017 Honda Civic to sail through government crash test simulations; in fact, the NHTSA awarded it a 5-star rating in every single category, as well as a 5-star rating overall*.
Driver Assistance Technologies
The features listed above will be all most drivers need, but for those who regularly need to commute from Keno into Klamath Falls or from Malin through to Midland, the following driver assistance technologies can be invaluable:
- Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow
- Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
- Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)
- Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
- Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM)
- Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
These technologies will enhance your awareness of the road, warn you of danger, and even act independently to prevent collisions from occurring, and you can fit the Honda Sensing suite across all Honda models.
