Outstanding Honda Civic Technology Connects, Protects

  • 2016 Honda Civic

    Among the assets of the ever-popular Honda Civic, technology features are state-of-the-art and plentiful onboard this outstanding car, enhancing the driving experience in a variety of ways.

    The Civic’s high-tech amenities bolster convenience, safety, and entertainment and also exceed the offerings of various Civic rivals like the Toyota Corolla, the Chevy Cruze, and the Nissan Sentra.

    Read on to find out how the Honda Civic technology features put it ahead of the curve when it comes to the competition.

High-tech Safety

For its exceptional performance in crash tests, the 2016 Honda Civic has earned a 5-Star Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration* and has also been named a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety**—both the highest safety ratings offered by those organizations.

State-of-the-art safety and driver-assist features offered onboard the Civic include:

  • Multi-angle rearview camera
  • Hill start assist
  • Vehicle stability assist with traction control
  • Brake assist
  • Tire pressure monitoring system

Honda LaneWatch also comes standard in all but the base model.

Available safety features include a collision mitigation braking system, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist system, road departure mitigation system, and adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow.

Convenience-boosting Tech

The Civic further offers a host of tech-savvy amenities designed to enhance convenience and entertainment onboard this exceptional car.

Among them are various features that come standard in all but the base trim, including Smart Entry, remote engine start, push-button start, Pandora compatibility, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and an SMS text message function. For tips on using Apple CarPlay, see our accompanying video.

Standard high-tech features in the Civic include speed-sensitive volume control, a radio data system, power door locks with an auto-lock feature, automatic climate control, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, Bluetooth streaming audio, a Maintenance Minder system, a trip computer, and a color LCD screen.

An auto-dimming rearview mirror also comes standard in the EX-L and Touring trims, and rain-sensing windshield wipers come standard in the Touring trim.

A Honda satellite-linked navigation system with voice recognition, Honda HD Digital Traffic, and Song By Voice is further available in the EX-L trim and comes standard in the Touring trim.

Competitor Contrast

In terms of technology, the Civic outdoes rivals like the 2016 Toyota Corolla, the 2016 Chevy Cruze, and the 2016 Nissan Sentra.

None of these competitors, for instance, offers rain-sensing windshield wipers, as the Civic does, or airbags with smart features such as the Civic’s standard SmartVent front side airbags, which deploy with varying levels of force, or shut off completely, in keeping with the size of the passenger.

Neither the Corolla nor the Cruze offers a collision mitigation braking system or adaptive cruise control like the Civic does, and the Corolla also does not provide a collision warning feature.

The Corolla and the Sentra do not offer lane departure warning systems, hill start assist, or remote vehicle start, as the Civic does, and neither provides an emergency response system like the Civic’s HondaLink Assist, which instantly alerts emergency responders via a GPS receiver and cellular system when the airbags in the vehicle deploy.

The Corolla further does not offer an auto-dimming rearview mirror or automatic on/off headlights, as the Civic does.
