Honda Civic Technology Features

  • 2016 Honda Civic

    The standard and available Honda Civic technology features are far from the only thing that sets the 2016 Civic above its competitors, but they’re definitely one of its biggest advantages. From advanced connectivity to driver assistance and accident prevention features, it’s clear that the Civic’s tech features mark it as one of the most advanced small cars on the road.

Connectivity Features

It’s important to stay connected on the road, and the 2016 Honda Civic technology features help you do that whether on the base LX trim or the top-of-the-line Touring trim. These features are either standard or available on the 2016 Civic and help give it an edge over its competition:

  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink: The Civic includes Bluetooth for phone and audio as a standard feature, letting you stream audio and make hands-free phone calls from the driver’s seat.
  • Display Audio Touchscreen:
  • Honda’s Civic has a 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen available that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility for a seamless connectivity experience.

  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay: It used to be hit or miss whether a phone would get along with a car when connecting over Bluetooth, but Android Auto and Apple CarPlay have changed that, bringing familiar apps to the dash. See how easy it is to send an e-mail in our embedded video.
  • HondaLink: This exclusive telematics system brings podcasts, radio, social media, your music library, and more to the Civic. Schedule service appointments and control vehicle settings from your smartphone with HondaLink apps.
  • Navigation: 2016 Civic models have a navigation system available that can route you around traffic and direct you to points of interest along the way, ensuring a fast trip and memorable stops.

Advanced Safety

Honda Civic technology features are about more than just staying connected behind the wheel; they help make the vehicle safer. A standard multi-angle rearview camera system, advanced body design, and a suite of airbags help make the Civic one of the safest cars and best sedans of 2016.

These available Honda Sensing safety features take auto safety to new levels:


Honda Civic Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control: Radar technology lets the Civic sense the speed of cars around it and adjust cruise settings to keep pace so you can focus on the drive.

Honda Civic Forward Collision Warning

Forward Collision Warning: By monitoring the speed of the vehicles around the Civic, those radar sensors can detect when the car is approaching another too quickly and issue a warning to the driver to avoid a forward collision.

Honda Civic Collision Mitigation Braking System

Collision Mitigation Braking System: If a driver doesn’t respond to the forward collision warning system quickly enough, the collision mitigation braking system can engage the brakes to slow or even stop the vehicle.

Honda Civic Road Depature

Road Departure Mitigation System: This safety feature keeps an eye on markings on the side of the road, adjusting torque and maneuvering the Civic back toward the pavement if it senses your car is about to leave the road.

Honda Civic Lane Depature Warning

Lane Departure Warning: A front-facing camera on the Civic is able to monitor lane markings and alert the driver if it senses the car drifting from the center of its lane.

Honda Civic Lane Keeping Assist

Lane Keeping Assist System: If the driver doesn’t respond to the lane departure warning, this safety system can adjust torque to keep the Civic centered in the lane.


These advanced safety features have caught the eye of top crash test organizations, too; 2016 Civic models with Honda Sensing have earned 2016 Top Safety Pick+ recognition from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).*

Compare to the Competition

We think looking at Honda Civic technology features next to competing cars is a great way to show just what kind of an advantage the Civic has. Here are three competitors that have to contend with the Civic:

  • Toyota Corolla: Our full 2016 Toyota Corolla review breaks down all of the differences between these two cars, but you shouldn’t expect any amenities on the Toyota without upgrades—it doesn’t even include cruise control.
  • Chevy Cruze: The Cruze has a better features package than the Corolla, but even then it comes up short on features drivers expect, with Chevy requiring upgrades for climate control, cruise control, and even floor mats.
  • Nissan Sentra: The Sentra’s reputation as a value car is maintained by giving drivers a barebones base model that requires upgrades for the Civic’s standards, like a rearview camera, and it doesn’t have anything comparable to the Honda Sensing package.

Test Drive a Civic
