Edmunds' Inside Line



Among compact cars, you'll find few if any models that rank as high in occupant protection as the 2014 Honda Civic. It's one of the top performers in its class for safety; its safety feature set is one of the best as well.

Significant structural upgrades were made on the Civic for the 2013 model year, and those enhancements carry through to 2014. With Honda's ACE II body structure and an enhanced front-end structure, the Civic aces the tough new Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) small overlap frontal test, and it gets top 'good' ratings in every other category. That makes it one of the few compact cars to get the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ accolade.

It's also earned top five-star overall results from the federal government, although it earns four stars in frontal impact (five for side impact). Coupes, we should add, figure to four stars overall.

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. The Civic Hybrid is newly offered with standard forward collision warning (FCW) and lane departure warning (LDW)--two systems that are typically not at all offered in affordable compact cars.

 

Conclusion

The 2014 Honda Civic is one of the safest compacts you can get; and a standard backup camera leaves it without any significant safety shortcomings.

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.
