The 2023 Honda Civic Sedan achieved an overall five-star crash safety rating from the NHTSA, and this was matched by a Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS. However, the sedan's original Good ratings for the moderate overlap front and side crash tests from the IIHS were downgraded to Acceptable ratings after the tests were beefed up. In all other crashworthiness tests, the sedan was flawless.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
The new Civic is a bouncy castle on wheels with front, front side, front knee, curtain, and rear outboard airbags. Honda also includes ABS, EBD, traction and stability control, a reverse camera, and a tire pressure monitoring system.
The Honda Civic boasts excellent safety ratings thanks to a comprehensive list of safety features, thanks to the Honda Sensing suite which is standard across the range. It consists of adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, lane-keep assist, road-departure mitigation, lane-departure warning, forward-collision warning and mitigation, traffic-jam assist, driver-attention monitoring, and traffic-sign recognition. The EX can be optioned with a blind-spot information system which is standard on the Touring, and the latter also gets low-speed braking control and front/rear parking sensors.
