11th Gen Honda Civic Gets 5-Star Euro NCAP Safety Rating

The new Honda Civic e:HEV has been awarded 5-star rating in the latest round of Euro NCAP crash tests. The new Civic was tested under the latest stringent testing protocols.

The tested variant was 5-door hatchback where the new Civic scored 89.2% (33.9 out of 38 points) in Adult Occupant Protection, 87.7% (43/49 points) in Child Occupant Protection, 82.2% (44.4/54 points) in Vulnerable Road Users and 83.75% (13.4/16 points) in Safety Assist Systems.

The European Civic hybrid gets 11 airbags including knee airbags for both front occupants. A front center airbag is fitted for the first time to prevent collision between the driver and front passenger during a side impact. Plus it comes equipped with newly-designed front bumper beam safety plates. These absorb impact energy, reducing the risk of leg fractures and knee ligament damage for pedestrians in the event of a collision.

According to Euro NCAP, the use of the latest Honda Sensing has improved safety by detecting objects earlier and more accurately, even in the dark. This is made possible with the integration of sonar sensors and a wider 100-degree view camera.
