Honda Civic Technology
With the number of intelligent vehicle technologies that exist today, no car is complete without a comprehensive technology package. From entertainment to driver-assisting tools and more, the 2017 Honda Civic is packed with handy technologies that’ll make your drive safer and easier. For residents of the Centennial, Aurora, and Denver areas to understand what the Civic offers, our team at Mile High Honda have put together this helpful technology review.
To get started, let’s look at the Honda Civic media package.
Audio and Entertainment
One of the keys to vehicle comfort is the media bundle that’s offered in it. The 2017 Honda Civic comes equipped with a wide range of useful technology, starting with Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink and streaming audio. Drivers can connect any Bluetooth®-compatible device to their vehicle, such as a phone or MP3 player. From here, they can make phone calls or change music selections using their voice. From the 5-inch color LCD display in the media center, anyone can view music genres, titles, and stations using the radio data system.
In some models, Civic owners will have access to HondaLink®.1 HondaLink® allows your vehicle to connect with your phone or tablet, so you can bring up the navigation system, traffic reports, text messages, and more on your car’s display. HondaLink® also comes with Apple CarPlay2 and Android Auto,3 which allows you to view several more phone apps on the car’s LCD screen.
On a busy highway or poor terrain, drivers are going to need to be extra alert if they want to remain safe. The 2017 Honda Civic, with its many driver-assisting features, wants to do some of the work for you. The car comes equipped with a multi-angle rearview camera4 with guidelines to help you back out of tight spaces. And an available Lane Keeping Assist System will alert you, both with audible and tactile warnings, if you begin to drift out of your lane.
Adaptive Cruise Control is now more intelligent than ever, as it’s been enhanced with low speed follow.5 It’ll moderate speeds and monitor how close you are to surrounding vehicles, so when you approach another car, your Civic will automatically slow down. A Collision Mitigation Braking SystemTM6 (CMBS™) is also available. Using a complex network of sensors, CMBS™ can detect when collision is possible, and will apply brake force to help avoid impact.
The Honda Civic is constantly trying to improve on driver safety, and technology is a big part of that. Some common safety features have been enhanced for more efficient performance, like Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control,7 which can improve your car’s control on even the most dangerous surfaces. Electronic brake force distribution is also included to help improve the already advanced braking systems the Civic is equipped with.
Your instrument cluster is easy to read, and can offer clear indicators of when something may be wrong with your vehicle. The Maintenance Minder™ system will run constant diagnostic tests on your car. When something is wrong, Maintenance Minder™ will send alerts and remind you to schedule service. This tool works in tandem with the included Tire Pressure Monitoring System.
