2024 Honda Civic Sedan Technology and Safety Features

For many years, the Honda Civic has been at the top of the popularity list with the car-buying public in Canada. Both new and used Honda Civics sell well for many reasons. These include fuel economy, great build quality, performance, and one of the most important reasons is its safety and technology record.

Honda Civic Safety

The Civic boasts all the features necessary to protect the driver and passengers in an accident. This is a great safety net to have, but Honda, like many manufacturers, has taken safety a step further with a range of technological features in the car that helps the driver to avoid an accident.

Active Safety Systems

Active safety systems are systems designed to help drivers avoid accidents by managing the acceleration, braking and steering of the vehicle.

Lane Keeping Assist and Lane Departure Warning

These two features work together to stop a driver from drifting out of their lane. Lane Keeping Assist detects when the vehicle is moving out of the lane without the driver signalling their intent to do so. The system gently applies torque to steer the vehicle back into the centre of the lane. If the vehicle continues to drift out of the lane, a visual and audible warning is given by this feature. 

Forward Collision Warning and Collision Mitigation Braking System

Here, again, are two systems that work perfectly in combination to assist drivers in not driving into the vehicle in front of them. If the Forward Collision Warning system detects that the vehicle is approaching the rear of the car in front too fast, an audible, visual and tactile warning is given. If the driver fails to respond to the warning, the Collision Mitigation Braking System is called into action, and the car’s brakes are applied to bring the speed down. Another warning is given, and if there’s still no response from the driver, the CMBS will brake.

Passive Safety Systems

 

Passive Safety Systems

Passive safety systems are those that react after an accident has occurred to help keep the driver and passengers from serious injury.

 

These include seatbelts, airbags, and crumple protection. The quality of these features is supported by the five-star safety rating issued by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Their crash tests, such as frontal crashes, side impacts, partial impacts, roof strength, restraints and so on, all get a protection rating of good.

 

Advanced Compatibility Engineering

This is how the body of the Civic is engineered to disperse the energy of a frontal collision and prevent intrusion of the body into the cabin in the event of a serious accident. 

Advanced Airbag Design

The Civic has airbags situated to protect the occupants from rear, front, side, and knee impacts.

Hill Start Assistance

His feature keeps the brakes applied briefly when taking off from an incline. It prevents the vehicle from rolling back into the vehicle behind.

Vehicle Stability Assist and Traction Control

This feature is designed to detect and prevent over and under steer during cornering. Traction Control will help prevent wheel spin when driving in adverse conditions.

Blind Spot Information (BSI) System & Rear Cross Traffic Monitor System

These two systems work in conjunction with each other to provide information about cars approaching from the rear. Blind Spot Monitoring advises if a car is in your blind spot when you turn on your indicators, signalling you want to change direction.

The rear cross-traffic system works with the rearview camera to warn you of any vehicles either approaching or behind you when you want to reverse.

TFT Display

This 7-inch display gives the driver all the information they need. It can display essential information like speed, tachometer, odometer and fuel, but it can also display information from the infotainment and navigation systems. If you would like a larger display, there’s an optional 10.2-inch screen available.

Safety & Technology - The Cherries on the Top of a Great Car

The Civic is an all-around package with excellent build quality, great fuel consumption, and the cherries on the top are the safety and technology installed in the vehicle. To test drive the latest Civic, pop into Fairway Honda at 43 Confederation Dr, Corner Brook, NL.
