Default Civic: 2013 Honda Civic Sedan and Coupe Models Remain Only Small Cars to Achieve Top IIHS Small Over


  • 2013 Honda Civic Sedan and Coupe are Small Car Segment Class-Leaders

  • Civic currently holds highest overall IIHS rating of TOP SAFETY PICK+


The 2013 Honda Civic Sedan and Coupe remain the only small cars to earn the top rating of GOOD in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's (IIHS) stringent small overlap front crash test. The Civic Sedan and Coupe are also the only small cars to earn both the highest possible rating of TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the IIHS and the top 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score in the NHTSA's New Car Assessment Program (NCAP).


"Honda continues to lead the industry in crash test performance, and after watching the videos, I think every compact car shopper should view the results of the new IIHS small overlap front crash tests before deciding on their next car," said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president of auto operations at American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "For customers looking to buy a compact car that achieves an overall GOOD rating in the IIHS small overlap frontal test, Civic is currently the only choice."


The Civic Sedan, significantly reengineered for 2013, is equipped with Honda's next generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering? (ACE? II) body structure, which plays a critical role in making Civic the first small car to earn a TOP SAFETY PICK+ crash safety rating, and the first?and to date, only?to earn the highest rating of GOOD in the IIHS' new small overlap front crash test (sometimes called a 'narrow offset' test). This aggressive test is designed to simulate what happens when the front corner of a vehicle collides with another vehicle or an object such as a tree or utility pole at high speed. The reinforced ACE? body structure found on the 2013 Civic further enhances the absorption of frontal crash energy through a wider range of these offset and oblique collision scenarios.


Additional standard safety equipment on all Civic models include Vehicle Stability Assist? (VSAŽ) with traction control; an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS); side curtain airbags; dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags; and driver and front passenger side airbags.


Honda Safety Leadership

Honda has a long history of leadership in the development and application of advanced technologies and designs to enhance the safety of all road users, including automobile occupants, motorcycle riders and pedestrians. The company operates two of the world's most sophisticated crash test facilities and is responsible for numerous pioneering efforts in the areas of crashworthiness, airbag technology, collision compatibility and pedestrian safety. This commitment to safety is rooted in Honda's goal to be a company that society wants to exist, and it complements the company's leadership in reducing vehicle emissions, improving fuel efficiency and advancing alternatives to gasoline.
