2016 Honda CivicGoshen and Monroe drivers looking for family sedan should strongly consider the 2016 Honda Civic Sedan — it has been named a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The 2016 Civic is the first of the line’s tenth generation; as such, it boasts thoroughly up to date safety technologies and a build that has been refined over decades.

Worthy Protection

Each year, the IIHS crash-tests hundreds of cars entering the market, and they’ve made the criteria for their Top Safety Pick+ award more stringent over time. A top rating of “Good” is now required in all categories, including the tough small overlap frontal test, and vehicles must have an available front crash prevention system that earns either an “Advanced” or “Superior” rating.

With its next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure directing impact energy away from occupants, the 2016 Honda Civic Sedan was able to meet these tough standards to take home a coveted 2016 Top Safety Pick+ award.

Safety as Standard

The 2016 Honda Civic Sedan comes with all the standard safety features you’d expect, including a vehicle stability assist system with traction control, an anti-lock braking system, electronic brake distribution with brake assist, and Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH).

However, it also provides several unexpectedly premium safety technologies as standard with every model, such as:

  • Electric Parking Brake with Automatic Brake Hold
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines
  • LED Daytime Running Lights

Honda Sensing

In addition to those standard features, Goshen and Monroe drivers can opt for the available advanced driver-assistance features of the Honda Sensing package, which includes:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System
  • Road Departure Mitigation System
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Lane Keeping Assist System

These features come with some upper-level Civic trims, but Honda has taken the step of making the package available as an option with even the entry-level LX.
