The new-generation Honda Civic performed really well in the test. The sedan scored 29.28 out of 32 points in adult occupant protection. This was followed by getting awarded full marks for the side impact test. However, the sedan lost a few points in the frontal impact test and head protection technology test. Having said this, the vehicle scored 14.54 out of 16 in the former and 6.74 out of 8 in the latter. Talking about child occupant protection, the Civic scored 24 out of 24 in this category. But when it comes to child seat installation, child presence detection, and vehicle based assessment, the car did lose some points. With this, the overall score stood at 46.72 out of 51 points. Besides this, the sedan achieved 19.07 out of 21 points in the safety assist category. Considering each category, the Honda Civic overall safety rating stood at 83.47.
Honda has equipped the Civic on sale in ASEAN countries like Indonesia, Thailand, and Singapore with a plethora of safety features like six airbags, passive safety systems, and the Honda Sensing suite. Talking about the Honda Sensing Suite, it is the brand’s ADAS technology suite where one can access features like lane departure warning, a driver attention monitor, autonomous emergency braking, automatic high beam, and lane keep assist. However, the sedan misses out on features like blind spot detection system and a rear-view camera. Despite this, the new-gen Civic scored maximum points for pedestrian protection, automatic high beam, and the AEB system’s ability to detect motorcycles.
