The 2016 Honda Civic is more responsive and better than ever before. It has also proven itself to be one of the safest cars on the market, winning the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick.
“The Honda Civic is a lot safer now,” said Rob Oleskewicz, Brand Specialist at Hoffman Honda. “It’s easy to see why it was chosen as the Top Safety Pick. It corners quickly and comes standard with a back-up cam,” Oleskewicz added. The 2016 Honda Civic is perfect for every need. It gets 40 miles per gallon, comparable to many Hybrids on the market. The back seat is roomier than ever before, and the front seat “can comfortably fit a 6’6″ man,” adds Oleskewicz. The trunk is spacious and the vehicle is light but feels heavy- the perfect combination.
The Honda Civic comes standard with the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technology, including:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS™): CMBS automatically applies the proper amount of pressure needed to your Civic’s brakes to avoid hitting a vehicle in front of you.
- Lane Departure Warning (LDW) integrated with RDM: LDW can detect un-indicated lane departures from detected lanes. Alerts will flash and sound to capture your attention to correct the lane drift.
- Forward Collision Warning (FCW) integrated with the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™): FCW uses a small camera mounted at the top of the front windshield to detect the presence of vehicles in front of you. If the FCW system determines that you are at risk of a collision with a detected vehicle, it activates audio and visual alerts to warn you5. If you fail to act, the CMBS will automatically apply brake pressure.
- Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow: ACC helps you maintain a set following interval, so you don’t have to manually change your speed.
- Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS): LKAS can reduce driver fatigue by helping to keep you in the middle of your lane. If you begin to leave the center of a detected lane without signaling, the steering adjusts to keep you centered.
- Road Departure Mitigation (RDM): If your vehicle is drifting too close to the side of the detected roadway while driving 45–90 mph without a turn signal activated, RDM alerts you with rapid vibrations on the steering wheel. If you continue to leave the roadway, it can also apply steering torque and braking to help keep your vehicle in the detected lane.
