2012 Honda Civic Safety

9.0
Safety

The 2012 Honda Civic in sedan form, is a great pick, earning both five-star safety ratings from the federal government and top 'good' results in all categories from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

It should be noted that those results don't extend to the Coupe which, in its last generation, was given a lower 'acceptable' score.

The 2012 Honda Civic sedan is looking like a very sensible choice for the safety-minded.

While some of the previous Civic's so-called ACE body structure carries over to the new model, Honda has optimized it to absorb crash impact through “pathways” that distribute forces away from occupants.

Electronic stability control is standard on the Civic, as are anti-lock brakes, side-curtain airbags for front and rear occupants, and front-seat side bags, plus a whiplash-mitigating seat design.
