According to these guys.
Safety is obviously a huge issue when it comes to buying cars and, fortunately, government safety standards are extremely high today. However, some cars are safer than others, and according to one of the latest series of crash tests carried out by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the new and redesigned 2016 Honda Civic Coupe is a top pick. It just earned good ratings in the IIHS’s small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint evaluations.
The institute specifically points out the Civic coupe’s optional front crash prevention system which, tested at 12 mph and 25 mph, avoided collisions.
It doesn’t really come as a surprise that the new Civic coupe has earned 'good' ratings in all five crashworthiness tests because Honda has a long history of designing and engineering solid vehicles. Well, there is that whole Takata airbag recall, but Takata is a supplier and Honda is not the only automaker affected by those defective airbags. Bottom line, the 2016 Honda Civic Coupe will keep drivers and passengers alive in the event of a serious crash better than most.
