Honda Civic Safety Info
New Honda Civics include many advanced safety features, such as Vehicle Stability Assist, anti-lock brakes, SmartVent front side airbags and dual-stage front airbags. The Civic Hybrid model includes a small camera mounted at the top of the windshield that sounds an alarm if it detects a possible impending collision or a lane change the driver hasn’t signaled.
The four-door 2013 Honda Civic has been named a 2013 Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, an independent nonprofit that researches and tests vehicle safety.
Founded in Japan by Sochiro Honda in 1948, the Honda Motor Company began as a motorcycle manufacturer. In 1963, Honda sold its first four-wheel vehicles: the T360 mini pickup truck and the S500 sports car. In 1986, Honda introduced luxury brand Acura to the United States market. The company’s best known for its small and fuel-efficient cars, especially the long-running Honda Civic, the Honda Accord and the newer Honda Fit.
About the Honda Civic
Once a subcompact budget car, the Honda Civic has evolved into a sporty, hi-tech compact that’s available as a coupe, sedan and four-door hybrid. New
Honda Civics feature the intelligent Multi-Information Display (iMID), which includes a rear-view camera, Bluetooth integration, Pandora radio and SMS messaging.
The Civic got a style upgrade for the 2013 model year — a definite improvement in the looks department, says Car and Driver’s review. The magazine criticized the Civic’s “pokiness,” however, deeming it “still slow, still not exactly fun to drive.”
Honda Civic Motorsports
Honda Civics have long been favorites for custom modifications and street racing. They’ve also competed in touring car racing since they were introduced. You’ll spot Honda Civics in the British Touring Car Championship and World Touring Car Championship.
For those who want to feel like they’re racing — even if they’re just driving to work — Honda makes the Civic Si coupe and sedan. This line of Civics has a racecar-inspired interior, six-speed manual transmission and engine performance display.
Honda Accord Environmental Impact
The standard Honda Civic has always been a fuel sipper; the 2013 four-door gets 28 mpg in the city and 39 on the highway. New Civics also include the Eco Assist dashboard display, which helps users drive more efficiently, and the ECON mode to save fuel. The slightly sportier Civic HF includes a rear spoiler and underbody panels that nudge the highway mileage up to 41.
The sleek Honda Civic Hybrid gets 44 mpg both in the city and on the open road. And for a nearly zero-emissions ride, Honda also manufactures a Civic that runs on natural gas.
