    Safety may not be the first thing you are looking for in a new car, but it should be the most important, and we have yet to find a small car that competes with the 2017 Honda Civic Sedan safety features. Available now at Hampton Roads Honda Dealers, the Civic has a long list of standard safety features as well as the Honda Sensing package of driver-assist technologies that is available at every trim level (and standard on Touring models).

Driver Assist

We want to start with the most impressive 2017 Honda Civic Sedan safety features, so you know just how high of a priority Honda places on safety. These features are found in the Honda Sensing package of safety technologies:


Honda Civic Lane Keeping Assist

Lane Keeping Assist: A front-mounted camera from the Lane Departure Warning system monitors the markings on the pavement, and if it senses you’ve drifted from your lane without responding, Lane Keeping Assist will nudge the wheel to keep your Civic centered.

Honda Civic Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control: Radar sensors on the Civic let this available feature monitor the speed of surrounding vehicles and adjust your cruising velocity to keep pace with the cars around you.

Honda Civic Collision Mitigation Braking System

Collision Mitigation Braking: The Civic’s Forward Collision Warning system isn’t the only thing stopping an accident; if the driver fails to respond, Collision Mitigation Braking can automatically apply the brakes to slow or stop the vehicle.

Honda Civic Road Departure Mitigation System

Road Departure Mitigation: This safety feature works like Lane Departure Warning, but tracking common side-of-road markers and signs. If it detects that you’re heading onto the shoulder or off the road, it can correct your course with steering and brake adjustments.

Passive Safety

Not all accidents can be avoided, and the 2017 Honda Civic Sedan safety features take that into account with these passive safety technologies that keep you and your passengers secure.

  • ACE Body Structure: The Advanced Compatibility Engineering (or ACE) Body Structure uses reinforcements in common collision areas as well as cleverly placed crumple zones that make it easier to safely distribute accident energy away from passengers.
  • Airbags: Decades of design has led us to airbags engineered to deploy with just the right amount of force and minimize airbag-related injuries. The Civic features SmartVent side airbags, dual-stage multi-threshold front airbags, and a set of side curtain airbags.
  • 3-Point Seat Belts: Each of the Civic’s five seating positions has three-point safety belts to anchor everyone in the vehicle during a collision.
  • LATCH Anchors: Secure a child safety seat with ease using the Civic’s LATCH car seat anchors, found on each of the three rear seats.
  • Child-Proof Locks: Ensure that the kids don’t get too curious in the backseat with child-proof locks. Their prying hands can pull and tug at the handle all they want, and they’ll stay in the car.

Active Safety

These safety features either increase driver visibility or allow the vehicle to respond to road conditions to keep you in control.


Honda Civic Vehicle Stability Assist

Vehicle Stability Assist: By sensing steering wheel position and tire angles, Vehicle Stability Assist can detect if the Civic is heading where you want it to or if there is understeer or oversteer, adjusting engine output and brake performance to put you back in control.

Honda Civic Brake Assist

Advanced Braking Technologies: Anti-lock brakes are standard on all of the Civic’s wheels, with electronic brake force distribution and brake assist to ensure that when your foot hits that pedal, the Civic does everything it can to stop the car safely.

Honda Civic Rearview Camera

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Each Civic sports a multi-angle rearview camera, offering you top-down, standard, and wide-angle views of what’s behind the car; just shift into reverse to have the camera view pop up on your display.

Honda Civic Lanewatch

Honda LaneWatch: This available blind-spot camera system takes a view from a passenger mirror–mounted camera and projects it on your in-dash screen when signaling a lane change so you can have a better view of the passenger blind spot.

Honda Civic Daytime Running Lamps

Daytime Running Lights: Standard on the Civic, daytime running lights run whenever the engine’s on, making the car more visible to other drivers and reducing the risk of an accident.
