As noted by critics at Edmunds.com: “Honda could have sent its engineers on a yearlong vacation to Tahiti rather than task them with updating the 2019 Civic.” It’s a vehicle already years ahead of the competition, and yet the Honda team has chosen to upgrade Honda Civic Sedan safety even further to ensure the cutting edge of protection stays sharper than ever.
From active safety features to prevent collisions to passive safety features designed to prevent harm in the unlikely event of an accident, you’ll feel perfectly confident. Better yet, all trims now boast additional Honda Sensing driver assistance features.
You might notice that the Honda Civic Sedan feels like it’s working with you to improve performance and safeguard control, and that’s exactly what’s happening. The vehicle calls on a suite of active safety features engineered to help maintain control and prevent accidents from happening.
Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control: Stabilizes the vehicle through corners and maintains traction across loose or slippery surfaces by regulating engine output and selectively applying the brakes.
Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD): Automatically distributes braking power between all four wheels based on road conditions, vehicle speed, and more.
Brake Assist: When you slam on the brakes, your Honda Civic Sedan will respond to the emergency braking situation by applying additional force.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS): Having too much or too little air in your tires increases the chances of a blowout and decreases responsiveness. An in-built monitoring system helps you keep tabs.
LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL): Low-level lighting enhances your visibility to other road users.
Multi-Angle RearviewCamera: Cycle between Normal, Wide, and Top-down viewing modes for safer and more convenient reversing.
The 2019 Honda Civic Sedan has been built around an Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure designed to direct crash force energy away from the passenger compartment in the event of a collision. Further passive safety features include:
Advanced Front Airbags (i-SRS)
SmartVent® Front Side Airbags
Side Curtain Airbags with Rollover Sensor
3-Point Seat Belts at all Seating Positions
Front 3-Point Seat Belts with Automatic Tensioning System
Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH)
Driver’s and Front Passenger’s Seat-Belt Reminder
Child-Proof Rear Door Locks
Honda Sensing technology pushes the Honda Civic Sedan to safest sedan status by augmenting your awareness, warning you of danger, and even stepping in independently to help prevent accidents.
Better yet, the following Honda Sensing features come as standard across all trims:
Honda Civic Sedan models are also available with a Honda LaneWatch™ feature. When you signal to change lanes, a video feed will play from beneath the side mirror to provide a complete view of what’s in your blind spot.
