With a multitude of standard safety features, the 2008 Honda Civic Coupe receives top scores for numerous safety tests.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives the 2008 Honda Civic Coupe five stars for most crash tests, save for a four-star rating for driver-side impact protection. It also gives the Civic a four-star rating for rollover resistance. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awards the Civic “good” ratings for both front and side impacts.

Cars.com states that standard safety features for the 2008 Civic Coupe include "antilock brakes, active front head restraints, side-impact airbags for front passengers and side curtain airbags for both rows of seats." And Kelley Blue Book declares that "the Civic features an advanced body structure designed to better absorb and distribute collision forces, especially in impacts involving taller sport utility vehicles and the like."

However, Edmunds notes that while anti-lock brakes are standard on the 2008 Honda Civic Coupe, the "EX and Si models have four-wheel discs, while the rest have rear drums," and that "stability control is an exclusive standard feature on the Si trim only." Cars.com also remarks on the lack of electronic stability control on the base-model Civic, saying that they'd "like to see stability control added as an option to the Civic before the system becomes mandatory in 2012."

Conclusion

With four- and five-star safety ratings, the 2008 Honda Civic Coupe is at the top of its class.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
