Kelley Blue Book

Despite a design that dates back to 2006, the 2010 Honda Civic line rates high for safety, offering a full range of safety equipment and top scores on almost all crash tests. Kelley Blue Book reports that the 2010 Honda Civic Hybrid offers "an impressive list of safety equipment including front, front-side and side-curtain airbags, active head restraints, anti-lock brakes (ABS), and more," a list echoed in most of the reviews read by TheCarConnection.com. Electronic stability control is also standard on the Civic Hybrid.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) rates the 2010 Honda Civic Hybrid as "good." And the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) awards the 2010 Civic Hybrid five stars for front impact and side rear passenger impact, along with four stars for side driver impact. Kelley Blue Book attributes these strong crash-test ratings to the 2010 Honda's "advanced body structure," which is "designed to better absorb and distribute collision forces, especially in impacts involving taller SUVs."

The 2010 Honda Civic Hybrid's safety scores are further boosted by above-average visibility, courtesy of the large windshield and overall design. While ConsumerGuide notes that the "long front roof pillars impede outward view to the corners," Cars.com testers find that "all-around visibility is exceptional."

Conclusion

The 2010 Honda Civic Hybrid does well in safety, with an impressive list of safety features and the top ratings needed to prove its mettle.

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.
