Many prime features come standard among the Honda Civic Hatchback’s plentiful safety offerings, meaning each and every 2017 Civic Hatchback model comes equipped with these amenities. Included among the Civic Hatchback’s standard safety offerings are features such as:
Advanced Airbags: Fundamental safety features like the Civic Hatchback’s airbag system have smart components to help bolster passenger protection. The car’s side curtain airbags with rollover sensors, for instance, have been designed to detect rollover collisions and then deploy accordingly. SmartVent front side airbags not only protect passengers from crash-related injuries, they protect car occupants from airbag-related injuries, as well, venting before full inflation occurs if a passenger is detected in the airbag’s deployment path.
Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: A multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines goes into action whenever the Civic Hatchback is shifted into reverse. This camera system can display a top view, normal view, or wide view image of any obstacles behind the car, displaying the live video footage on a screen inside the vehicle. Guidelines placed over the video images aid motorists as they navigate in reverse, showing the distance between the Civic Hatchback and obstacles in its path.
ACE Body Structure: Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure is a body design that helps enhance passenger protection and bolster vehicle crashworthiness in the event of a frontal collision. This cutting-edge design helps spread crash energy more evenly across the car’s front and can even help more evenly disperse crash inertia to other vehicles involved in the accident.
Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control: Vehicle Stability Assist is an electronic stability control system that works with the Civic Hatchback’s anti-lock braking and drive-by-wire throttle systems to facilitate greater control when cornering, braking, or accelerating, or in situations that call for sudden maneuvering. Additionally, the Vehicle Stability Assist system provides a limited-slip differential effect by sending brake force to any wheels that are slipping and redirecting driving force to the wheels that have more traction.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System: Drivers can avoid the dangers of traveling on a low tire thanks to the Civic Hatchback’s standard tire pressure monitoring system. Whenever the air pressure in a tire falls below the recommended level, the car’s indirect tire pressure monitoring system alerts the driver so the tire can be attended to immediately, giving motorists a chance to fix the issue before the tire becomes completely flat and helping drivers avoid the danger and potential damage that can occur from driving on a low tire.
Above and beyond the Honda Civic Hatchback’s standard safety offerings are various available safety and driver-assist features that are offered for the higher trim levels.
Also available for the Civic Hatchback are the Honda Sensing technologies, including:
