Honda Automobiles: All-new 2016 Honda Civic Coupe Earns IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ Rating

Posted on 11. Jun, 2016 by in Honda Canada

  • Six 2016 Honda models have now warranted tip IIHS reserve ratings
  • 10th-Generation Civic comforts next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) physique structure and accessible Honda Sensing™ reserve and driver-assistive technology

The sporty, worldly and dramatically redesigned 2016 Honda Civic Coupe can now lay explain to reserve care after earning a tip accessible collision reserve rating of TOP SAFETY PICK+ from a Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) when versed with Honda Sensing™.  All 2016 Civic Coupes acquire a tip GOOD rating in any of 5 IIHS exam modes, including tiny and assuage overlie frontal collisions, side impacts and roof vanquish protection.

The 2016 Civic Coupe joins a 2016 Civic Sedan, 2016 Accord Sedan, 2016 Accord Coupe, 2016 CR-V and 2016 Pilot SUV in requesting Honda Sensing record and earning an IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating.

The 2016 TOP SAFETY PICK+ nomination is indifferent for vehicles that have an accessible front pile-up impediment complement and acquire an ADVANCED or SUPERIOR rating from a Institute. In 12 mph and 25 mph tests during a IIHS track, a 2016 Civic Coupe with Honda Sensing successfully avoided collisions, earning a SUPERIOR rating for front pile-up insurance from a IIHS.

“We’re unapproachable to supplement a 2016 Civic Coupe to a flourishing family of Honda vehicles that occupy a Honda Sensing record and acquire tip pile-up reserve ratings,” pronounced Jeff Conrad, comparison clamp boss and ubiquitous manager of a Honda Division. “Honda Sensing and systems like it are changing a review around car reserve opening from pile-up insurance to pile-up avoidance, and we will continue to raise Honda Sensing to additional models as we work toward a prophesy for a collision-free society.”

Standard on a Civic Touring Coupe, a Honda Sensing™ apartment of modernized reserve and driver-assistive record can revoke a intensity of a collision or lessen a severity, alerting a motorist and holding puncture movement when a collision is dynamic to be imminent. Honda Sensing™ uses both millimeter call radar and a monocular camera to clarity and respond to rescued highway hazards. Honda Sensing technologies on a 2016 Civic Coupe include:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS™)1
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW) integrated with RDM2
  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW) integrated with CMBS3
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow4
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)5
  • Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)6

The larger use of high-strength steel and modernized pile-up engineering features, including Honda’s next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) physique structure, a new pile-up cadence front support structure and tailor-tempered B-pillars and back support structures, assistance improved strengthen occupants in a collision while minimizing car weight for higher fuel efficiency. In addition, customary pacifist reserve comforts on a 2016 Civic Coupe embody a new front passenger’s reserve opening airbag, SmartVent® front side screen airbags and side screen airbags with rollover sensor.

All 2016 Civic Coupe models also come customary with Vehicle Stability Assist® with Traction Control, 4-channel Anti-Lock Braking System with Brake Assist; a rarely responsive, entirely eccentric suspension; Motion-Adaptive Electric Power Steering; a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera; Expanded View Driver’s Mirror; surreptitious tire vigour monitoring system; and Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) child chair ascent system.

About Honda
Honda offers a full line of reliable, fuel-efficient and fun-to-drive vehicles with modernized reserve technologies sole by approximately 1,000 eccentric U.S. Honda dealers. The Honda lineup includes a Fit, Civic and Accord newcomer cars, along with a
HR-V, CR-V and Pilot sport/utility vehicles, a soon-to-be-launched Ridgeline pickup and a Odyssey minivan.

Honda has been producing automobiles in America for 33 years and now operates 19 vital production comforts in North America. In 2015, some-more than 99 percent of all Honda vehicles sole in a U.S. were done in North America, regulating domestic and globally sourced parts.

Honda Commitment to Safety
Honda has a prolonged story of care in a growth of modernized technologies designed to raise a reserve of all highway users, including car occupants, motorcycle riders and pedestrians. Today, Honda is operative toward a prophesy for a “zero-collision society” and is targeting a 50 percent rebate in fatalities in a vehicles by 2020, compared to 2000 levels, and 0 fatalities in Honda vehicles by 2040. 

Toward this goal, a association is broadly requesting a Honda Sensing™ apartment of modernized reserve and driver-assistive technologies that can assistance lessen a intensity for or astringency of a collision. Thanks in partial to a widespread focus of Honda’s next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) physique structure, Honda is also among a attention leaders in earning tip collision reserve ratings from a U.S. supervision and a Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), including tip IIHS collision-safety ratings for 6 top-selling U.S. models – Accord Sedan, Accord Coupe, Civic Sedan, Civic Coupe, CR-V and Pilot.

1 CMBS can't detect all objects forward and might not detect a given object; correctness will change formed on weather, speed and other factors. System operation influenced by impassioned interior heat. System designed to lessen pile-up forces. Driver stays obliged for safely handling car and avoiding collisions

2 LDW usually alerts drivers when line deposit is rescued but a spin vigilance in use. LDW might not detect all line markings or line departures; correctness will change formed on weather, speed and highway condition. System operation influenced by impassioned interior heat. Driver stays obliged for safely handling car and avoiding collisions.

3 FCW can't detect all objects forward and might not detect a given object; correctness will change formed on weather, speed and other factors. System operation influenced by impassioned interior heat. FCW does not embody a braking function. Driver stays obliged for safely handling car and avoiding collisions.

4 Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with low-speed follow can't detect all objects forward and might not detect a given object; correctness will change formed on weather, speed and other factors. ACC should not be used in complicated traffic, bad continue or on circuitous roads. Driver stays obliged for safely handling car and avoiding collisions.

5 LKAS usually assists a motorist in progressing correct line position when line markings are identified but a spin vigilance in use and can usually request amiable steering torque to assist. LKAS might not detect all line markings or line departures; correctness will change formed on weather, speed and highway condition. System operation influenced by impassioned interior heat. Driver stays obliged for safely handling car and avoiding collisions.

6 Road Departure Mitigation usually alerts drivers when line deposit is rescued but a spin vigilance in use and can request amiable steering torque to support motorist in progressing correct line position and/or stop vigour to delayed a vehicle’s depart from a rescued lane. Road Departure Mitigation might not detect all line markings or line departures; correctness will change formed on weather, speed and highway condition. System operation influenced by impassioned interior heat. Driver stays obliged for safely handling car and avoiding collisions.
