The 2017 Honda Civic Sedan Safety Features

  • 2017 Honda Civic

    The 2017 Honda Civic Sedan has a long list of safety features that keep everyone inside safer when on the road, from features that are built right into the design of the Civic, such as its ACE body structure, to the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assist features that let drivers see more, do more, and help mitigate collisions and road departures without the need for driver input. With all of these systems, designs, and features in place, the 2017 Honda Civic Sedan can give drivers and passengers more peace of mind on the road.

Active Safety

Every 2017 Honda Civic model—from the base LX model to the top-of-the-line Touring—comes with a list of active safety features. So no matter which level you decide is right for you, you can expect to find sophisticated and advanced standard features such as:

  • Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control
  • Anti-Lock Braking System
  • Electronic Brake Distribution
  • Brake Assist
  • LED Daytime Running Lights
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines: This camera allows the driver to switch between three different views: normal, top-down, and wide. Being able to clearly see the surroundings of the Civic helps drivers back in and out of tight spots knowing that the coast is clear. And with the guidelines feature, the driver can maneuver the Civic with more precision.
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System: This system monitors the tire pressure of each of the four tires and will notify the driver when one is low.
  • Electric Parking Brake: Drivers won’t have to pull a lever anymore—just a simple button engages this segment-first Electric Parking Brake.

Built-in Safety

Honda Civic Interior Seating
The 2017 Honda Civic Sedan was designed with safety in mind. That commitment to safety is evident in every facet of the Civic Sedan—from the engineering and design to the materials used to the airbags. Passive safety features that are standard on every model of the Civic Sedan include:

  • Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) Body Structure
  • Advanced Front Airbags
  • SmartVent Front Side Airbags
  • Side Curtain Airbags with Rollover Sensor
  • 3-Point Seat Belts at all Seating Positions
  • Front 3-Point Seat Belts with Automatic Tensioning System
  • Driver’s and Front Passenger’s Seat Belt Reminder
  • Child-Proof Rear Door Locks

Honda Sensing

The Honda Sensing package is a suite of safety and driving aids designed to help drivers operate better and more safely on the road. The Honda Sensing package is available on the LX, EX, EX-T, and EX-L trims and comes standard on the top-of-the-line Touring trim. Honda Sensing comes complete with:


Honda Civic Lane Keeping Assist

Lane Keeping Assist System: If the Civic begins to stray from the center of its lane on the highway without signaling, this system can activate the steering to nudge the Civic back to the center.

Honda Civic Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control with Low Speed Follow: Drivers can set the desired speed and this system will constantly readjust to keep a fixed interval between the Civic and vehicles ahead. This way, the Civic stays naturally within the flow of traffic without the driver having to manually adjust speed.

Honda Civic Collision Mitigation Braking System

Collision Mitigation Braking System: This system can detect when an oncoming vehicle is dangerously approaching the Civic and automatically engage the brakes in order to avoid a collision.

Honda Civic Road Departure Mitigation System

Road Departure Mitigation System: A small camera can detect when the Civic has gone over lane lines and road markings. First, the system will warn the driver of a potential road departure; then, if no action is taken, it can automatically engage the brakes to keep the Civic from going off the road.

Honda LaneWatch

Standard on the EX, EX-T, EX-L, and Touring trims is Honda LaneWatch. This system uses a small camera mounted on the passenger’s-side mirror and displays a live video feed on the Display Audio touchscreen when the driver signals to the right to change lanes. This allows the driver to see up to four times more than using the mirror alone, making the blind spot a thing of the past.

Safety Feature Options throughout the Trim Levels

With five different Honda Civic trim levels, drivers can evaluate the different safety features that are either standard or available on each model and select the trim that is right for them. Let’s take a look at each trim and the options that are available:


The entry-level trim features an array of passive and active standard features including a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines. The Honda Sensing suite can be added as an available option. However, Honda LaneWatch is not available at this trim level.

Honda Civic Sedan LX


The next step up from the base trim still has all the same active and passive features as the LX. Here, the Honda Sensing package is also an available option. Honda LaneWatch is a standard feature at this level.

Honda Civic Sedan EX


All the standard active and passive safety features are again seen here, along with Honda LaneWatch. The multi-angle rearview camera at this level now comes standard with dynamic guidelines, which can help drivers maneuver the Civic more accurately. The Honda Sensing suite is an available option.

Honda Civic Sedan EX-T


The EX-L has all the standard passive and active safety features of the lower trim levels. At this level, the rearview camera comes with dynamic guidelines. A satellite-linked navigation system is available, as is the Honda Sensing suite.

Honda Civic Sedan EX-L


The top-of-the-line Touring trim makes the Honda Sensing suite of technology a part of its list of standard equipment. The Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with Voice Recognition is also standard on the Touring and features 3D renderings of the Civic’s surrounds, including buildings and road signs.
