Want to find out more about the features that helped the Civic earn these stellar safety scores? Denver, Centennial, and Aurora area drivers looking for a detailed walk through of all of the Civic’s safety elements have come to the right place.
Visibility That Goes Both Ways
A critical aspect of staying safe during travel is making sure that you have a clear view of your surroundings and that other vehicles on the road have a clear view of you too. A rearview camera and daytime running lights are two standard features on the 2015 Honda Civic that help you see more and be seen.
Even parking masters get into a bind every now and then. Remove yourself from tricky spots without breaking a sweat by consulting the Civic’s standard rearview camera for an open view of what’s directly behind the vehicle.
When the sun is up, it can still be hard to see cars approaching, especially on windy back roads or in lower visibility conditions. Daytime running lights give the Civic an extra glimmer that makes your presence known to other vehicles no matter where you roam.
Always-on-Watch Accident Prevention
The Honda Civic relies on a number of mechanical safety systems that correct problems before requiring any driver input.
Depending on how many passengers you have on board, the Civic’s Electronic Brake Distribution system will reallocate each wheel’s brake power ratio so you always come to a balanced stop. The vehicle’s anti-lock braking system is another safety standard that helps you keep control of the vehicle when the brakes are under heavy use.
Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control helps your Civic achieve maximum surface grip. It can selectively apply the brakes or reduce engine power if under- or oversteering occurs when coming into a curve or turn.
The 2015 Civic also comes with a standard tire pressure monitoring system that watches for changes in tire pressure and warns the driver when low pressure levels require air to be added.
Stagnant Systems That Spring into Action
At the center of every Honda vehicle is the brand’s exclusive Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure. This special construction utilizes a system of structural components to better distribute the impact of a frontal collision and minimize potential injury to occupants onboard.
The 2015 Honda Civic is equipped with advanced airbags that do more to ensure that you and your fellow travelers are protected in the case of an accident. Dual-stage multi-threshold airbags upfront provide custom deployment levels depending on seat belt usage and impact severity. Front side airbags and side curtain airbags with rollover detection counterbalance the impact of a crash and ensure that occupants throughout the cabin receive optimal protection.
