The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is a government agency responsible for testing cars’ crash safety and rating them accordingly. Cars with top scores in all five categories are given a Top Safety Pick rating while models with front crash prevention systems that perform well earn the Top Safety Pick+ rating. Further proving it’s one of the safest cars on the road, the 2016 Honda Civic Coupe took home the top rating with ease.
To earn the top safety rating, the 2016 Honda Civic Coupe was equipped with Honda Sensing, the brand’s ultimate safety suite. With the new rating, the Civic Coupe joins the Honda Civic Sedan, Accord Sedan and Coupe, Pilot, and CR-V in the top tier of safe vehicles.
“We’re proud to add the 2016 Civic Coupe to a growing family of Honda vehicles that
employ our Honda Sensing technology and earn top crash safety ratings,” said Jeff Conrad, a Honda executive.
The Honda Sensing suite features advanced safety and driver-assisting technology like Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, Road Departure Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control, and much more. That technology allowed the Civic Coupe to avoid collisions from speeds of 12 mph and 25 mph.
