2017 Honda Civic Hatch Gray
Safety comes first with any Honda model, so you can expect the 2017 Civic Hatchback to carry the very latest protection technologies. The vehicle will make good on that promise, offering a vast array of airbags and stability control devices to ensure that you maintain complete control during each drive while knowing you’ll be shielded from injury if an accident should occur.

From the celebrated body structure that forms the Civic Hatchback’s core right to the advanced sensors and radars of the Honda Sensing suite, you’ll have everything possible on your side.

Safety Engineering

The 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback was designed to exacting specifications. The engineering team aimed to ace crash test simulations and provide drivers across the country with unparalleled peace of mind, and they succeeded. The 2017 Civic Hatchback just returned from crash-testing conducted by the NHTSA with a perfect 5-star safety rating; that means 5-stars in each individual segment, as well as a 5-star overall rating*.

Competing vehicles, such as the 2017 Ford Focus Hatchback have failed to replicate those results, and it’s all down to the ACE body structure. ACE stands for Advanced Compatibility Engineering, and it’s a huge part of what makes the Civic Hatchback able to protect you and your family from harm. In the unlikely event of an accident occurring, crumple zones will move intelligently in order to direct impact energy away from you and your passengers.

Safety Features

You’ll find plenty of safety features as standard with the new Civic Hatchback, including stability control, traction control, anti-locking brakes, Daytime Running Lights (DLRs), and hill start assist. Adding to that retinue is an exhaustive selection of high-end driver assistance technologies, which are collected together in the Honda Sensing suite.
