Active Safety

The active safety category consists of features that are always working to protect you and your loved ones while you’re on the road. Some of these features include:


Honda Civic Hatchback Collision Mitigation System

Collision Mitigation Braking System – In an effort to reduce the number of collisions on the road, this system uses radar to track following distance and will alert the driver if it gets too close; if necessary it can begin braking for the driver.

Honda Civic Hatchback Road Departure

Road Departure Mitigation System – This system can track the lanes in front of and around your vehicle and ensure that you’re staying within them by slowly correcting steering to avoid and possible collisions.

2017 Honda Civic Hatchback

LED Daytime Running Lights – High-strength headlights like the ones installed on the Honda Civic Hatchback keep your path lit and your vehicle more visible, no matter the time of day.

Honda Civic Hatchack Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Tire Pressure Monitoring System – This system takes preemptive measures by keeping track of the vehicle’s tire pressure and alerting the driver that it is time for maintenance if the levels get too low.

Honda Civic Hatchback Rearview Camera

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines – Seeing what’s going on behind your vehicle, avoiding accidents, and parking are much easier thanks to this backup camera that gives a clear view of what’s behind the car.

Passive Safety

Passive safety features play a more behind-the-scenes role in vehicle safety, keeping the Civic Hatchback prepared in case of collision or emergency.

  • Driver’s and Front Passenger’s Seat Belt Reminder – One of the most important rules of the road sometimes gets overlooked, but with seat belt reminders, drivers and front passengers will always remember to buckle up.
  • Three-Point Seat Belts with Automatic Tensioning System – After you’ve made sure to buckle in, this system will check that the tension is perfect for the occupant, making sure they are safe if a collision is to occur.
  • Side Curtain Airbags with Rollover Sensor – If a collision is to occur, this system will be able to sense if the vehicle experienced any rollover and will deploy side curtain airbags in an attempt to keep passengers inside the vehicle and minimize injury.
  • Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure – This specially designed body structure is built to absorb the impact of the crash with designated energy-absorbing crumple zones, and in turn make it less harsh on passengers.
  • SmartVent Airbags – Working in conjunction with the ACE body structure, SmartVent airbags deploy quickly to specifically help passengers avoid upper body injury due to the crash or harsh airbag deployment.

Driver-Assist Technology

These features are a balanced mix of active and passive safety features that help keep the driver alert and in control at all times.


Honda Civic Hatchback Honda Lanewatch

Honda LaneWatch – This feature’s passenger-side mirror mounted camera lets the driver make sure the coast is clear before changing lanes.

Honda Civic Hatchback Lane Keeping Assist

Lane Keeping Assist System – Similar to the Road Departure Mitigation System, this system works to keep drivers alert and inform them if they are venturing outside their designated lane, allowing them to correct their steering and avoid accidents.

Honda Civic Hatchback Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control with Low Speed Follow – This specialized version of the standard cruise control system greatly reduces stress on the driver during rush-hour traffic or long road trips by being able to adapt to the speed limit and set following distances between the Civic Hatchback and the vehicle in front.

Honda Civic Hatchback Auto Headlights

Auto High-Beam Headlights – Bad weather and dark nights don’t stand a chance thanks to these path-illuminating automatic headlights.
