Pedestrian Injury Mitigation Design
Structures in the front of the 2016 Civic are designed to help absorb energy in the event of a collision with a pedestrian. Research by Honda shows that the following features can dramatically improve a pedestrian's chance of survival if struck by a moving vehicle.

Specific pedestrian head injury mitigation features include:

  • Hood is designed to deform if contact is made with either an adult or a child pedestrian
  • Sufficient clearance exists between the hood and hard engine parts, allowing the hood to deform if impacted by a pedestrian
  • Windshield base has a unique section structure for efficient impact energy absorption
  • Energy-absorbing fender mounts and supports
  • Breakaway windshield wiper pivots
  • Deformable hood hinges

Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control
Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®)10 is an Electronic Stability Control system that works in conjunction with the Drive-by-Wire™ throttle and its 4-channel ABS systems to enhance control capability while the vehicle is accelerating, braking, cornering or when the driver makes a sudden maneuver. VSA functions by applying brake force to one or more wheels independently while also managing the throttle, ignition and fuel systems to help the vehicle maintain the driver's intended path of travel.

The VSA system constantly analyzes data from sensors that monitor wheel speed, steering input, lateral and longitudinal G forces and yaw rate. It compares the driver's control inputs with the vehicle's actual response. Whenever the actual response falls outside of a predetermined acceptable range, VSA intervenes with a corrective action. For instance, if VSA detects an oversteer condition, the system may apply braking force to the outside front and rear wheels to counteract the unintended yawing effect. In the event of understeer, VSA may apply braking to the inside rear wheel while reducing engine power to help return the vehicle to its intended course.

VSA also provides a limited-slip differential effect for the front wheels by applying braking force to a slipping wheel, thereby redirecting driving force to the wheel with more traction. VSA is calibrated to function in a near-transparent manner, and in many cases a driver will not even be aware of its operation. However, anytime the system is enhancing vehicle stability, an indicator light flashes in the instrument cluster. While the driver can reduce the traction control effectiveness allowing more wheel slip during stuck condition by pressing the VSA button, ABS remains fully operational at all times.

Motion-Adaptive Electric Power Steering (EPS)
Motion-Adaptive Electric Power Steering (EPS) is standard on all 2016 Civic models. The system incorporates driving stability technology that initiates steering inputs that prompt the driver to steer in the correct direction during cornering and in slippery road conditions. Using vehicle speed and steering angle data, Motion-Adaptive EPS works with Honda's Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA®)10 and Electric Power Steering to detect instability in slippery road conditions both during cornering and under braking and automatically initiates steering inputs aimed at prompting the driver to steer in the correct direction. This advanced technology supports the driver's action in operating the vehicle more safely and comfortably.

Two examples of how Motion-Adaptive Electric Power Steering (EPS) functions in conjunction with VSA are:

Stabilizes Vehicle under Braking
This function helps to correct the driver's steering input to reduce vehicle instability when the driver is braking hard on road surfaces with different friction coefficients (such as pavement that is partially covered with dirt or snow).

Mitigates Understeer and Oversteer 
To mitigate potential understeer or oversteer situations, the system helps correct the steering inputs to help the driver trace the curve.

(See the Chassis section for more information.)

Brake Assist
A function of the VSA® system10, the Brake Assist feature recognizes heavy braking situations and almost instantly applies added braking force. This Brake Assist feature is controlled by a special logic in the system that evaluates the pedal application rate and force to recognize a panic stop situation. At that point, the VSA modulator pump increases braking pressure while the pedal is still being pressed to ensure maximum stopping force, an action that can help shorten braking distance.

Advanced 4-Channel ABS with Electronic Brake Distribution
For the first time, all Civic trims are fitted with 4-wheel disc brakes with four-channel anti-lock braking (ABS). The ABS system also incorporates Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) circuitry that automatically proportions front-to-rear brake force based on the vehicle's dynamic load on each wheel. Larger front brake disc dimensions and a larger master cylinder improve stopping performance and pedal feel. (See the Chassis section for more information.)

The front seatbelts are equipped with pyrotechnic pretensioners and load limiting retractors to help minimize injury potential in a frontal collision. When an impact occurs, the automatic tensioner tightens the seatbelt (shoulder and lap) to help hold the seat occupant firmly in position. Each front seatbelt retractor incorporates a load limiter that works in conjunction with the automatic tensioner. The load limiter functions by permitting a small amount of controlled seatbelt slack shortly after the automatic tensioner is activated to limit the peak restraining forces and thereby reducing the potential of serious injury. The front seatbelts also feature adjustable-height shoulder anchors. To help increase seat-belt usage, a reminder for the driver and front passenger has been incorporated into the instrument cluster. After starting the vehicle, a weight sensor detects whether the front passenger seat is occupied. If the driver or front passenger has not already fastened the seat belt, an icon in the cluster illuminates and a chime sounds as a reminder to do so.

Crash Locking Tongue
The Civic's front seatbelts use a "crash locking tongue" latch plate design that locks the webbing in place during a collision, helping to better restrain the occupant. During normal driving conditions the seatbelt webbing moves freely through the latch plate in the normal manner. However in the event of a collision, forces exerted on the lap and shoulder sections of the seatbelt push the webbing against a "reaction surface" inside the latch plate, locking the webbing in place.

Dual-stage, Multiple-Threshold Front Airbags
Both the driver and front passenger are protected by advanced front airbags (SRS) that incorporate dual-stage and multiple-threshold activation technology. If deployed, these airbags are capable of being inflated at different rates depending on crash severity, seatbelt usage and other factors. Like other Honda vehicles, the driver's front airbag is located in the steering wheel while the passenger airbag is located on the top of the dash. When deployed, the passenger airbag inflates upward and then rearward to maximize its protective potential while reducing the likelihood of injuries caused by airbag deployment.

Driver's Spiral Airbag
In a first for the North American market, the 2016 Civic incorporates spiral stitching into the driver's front airbag. The spiral nature of the airbag promotes early restraint and maintains a constant pressure by reducing volume early and maximizing volume later in deployment.

Front Passenger's Safety Vent Airbag
A Honda first, the passenger's front airbag in the 2016 Civic features a new safety vent system that increases safety for the front passenger in a frontal collision involving an airbag deployment. If the passenger is sitting "out of position" – such as leaning forward in the pathway of the airbag deployment – the auxiliary vents remain open, directing a significant amount of gas out and away from the occupant. As a result, the potential for injury from the airbag striking an out-of-position passenger is reduced. However if the passenger is correctly seated, the airbag has an internal tether that will close the auxiliary vents at the necessary time to provide optimal occupant restraint.

Driver and Front Passenger SmartVent® Side Airbags
Side airbags mounted in the outboard area of each front seatback are designed to help provide pelvic and thorax protection for the driver and front passenger in the event of a severe side impact. In the 2016 Civic, a revised side airbag design allows the side airbags to deploy in a manner that helps mitigate the risk of injury to a smaller seat occupant.

Side Curtain Airbags
All outboard seating positions are protected by side curtain airbags with a rollover sensor system. In the event of a severe side impact, the side curtain airbags deploy from modules in the roof, providing a significant level of head protection in the window area. In the unlikely event of a rollover, a roll-rate sensor, along with multiple G sensors determine the rate of roll and deploy the side curtain airbags accordingly. The side curtain airbags will also deploy and provide head protection in frontal impacts as necessary. For example, small overlap impacts, where the front corner of the vehicle collides with a solid object.

Like the other airbag systems in the vehicle, the side curtain system utilizes sensors to determine the most appropriate timing of airbag deployment. To provide the optimal level of protection for occupants, testing was performed to determine the most appropriate timing and rate of deployment in the unlikely event of a rollover. The system uses algorithms to continually evaluate the situation and determines whether a rollover is imminent. The roll-rate sensor and multiple G sensors (accelerometers) determine the "scenario" and calculate the angle of roll and the speed of the vehicle in order to deploy the airbags at the correct point for optimum protection.

In the case of a rollover, the side curtain airbags on both sides of the vehicle will deploy. However, in the event of a sufficient side impact that does not result in a rollover, only the airbags on the impacted side of the vehicle will deploy. The airbag maintains full inflation for approximately six seconds after inflation to allow for the increased duration of a rollover accident.

Whiplash Mitigation Front Seat Design
Both of the front seats are designed to help mitigate the severity of neck injuries in the event of a rear impact. In the event of a rear crash, the seat efficiently disperses rear impact forces against the occupant as the seatback cushion compresses relative to the occupant's head. The seatback springs are optimized so that in a rear crash, when the seatback is pushed forward into the occupant, the seat will absorb the occupant's mass in manner that can help minimize the severity of a whiplash injury.

Adjustable Head Restraints
The front seats feature individually adjustable head restraints. The front head restraints are 0.8 inches narrower than in the previous Civic Coupe, substantially improving visibility for the rear-seat passengers.

Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH)
In a first for Civic, all models are equipped with a child seat-mounting system called LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren). Both of the second-row outboard seating positions are fitted with dedicated LATCH lower anchor attachment points. Tether anchors are provided the remaining middle seating position.

The LATCH system provides two lower anchors and an upper tether anchor. When used with a compatible child seat, the LATCH system provides attachment points between the child seat and the vehicle seat without having to use the vehicle's seat belts.

Additionally, all seat belts except the driver's are equipped with a locking retractor that can be used to help secure any child seat. Both rear side doors are also equipped with childproof door locks for added protection.

Indirect Tire Pressure Monitoring System
New for Civic, indirect Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)2 uses wheel-speed data collected by the 4-channel ABS system to determine when the air pressure in one tire drops below the recommended minimum. When this occurs, a symbol illuminates on the instrument panel to warn the driver. Indirect TPMS is simpler and lighter than traditional wheel-sensor TPMS, resulting in lower overall vehicle weight, which in turn helps improve handling and fuel efficiency. (See the Chassis section for more information.)

Expanded View Driver's Mirror
All Civic models are equipped with an Expanded View Driver's Mirror that increases the driver's field of vision to provide a better view of objects to the back and side of the vehicle. The Expanded View Driver's Mirror uses a flat reflective plane on the inner portion of the mirror closest to the door, while the outer portion of the mirror uses a convex element to provide a broader field of view.

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera
All 2015 and newer Honda models incorporate a multi-angle rearview camera1. Viewable on the Coupe LX and LX-P's 5-inch color LCD screen and the Coupe EX-T and above trims' 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen, the camera can show a top view, normal or wide view when the transmission is in Reverse. The LX trim features static guidelines that help the driver better judge distances, while EX-T and above trims have dynamic guidelines that project the vehicle's future path based on the driver's steering inputs. See the following page for an image of the Display Audio screen views. (See the Interior section for more information.)

Honda LaneWatch™
Civic EX-T Coupe and above trims include the Honda LaneWatch™3 display. Honda LaneWatch uses a camera located at the bottom the passenger-side exterior mirror to display a wide-angle view of the passenger side roadway on the new 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen. The image appears when the right turn signal is activated or when a button on the end of the turn signal stalk is pressed. (See the Interior section for more information.)

The typical field of view for a passenger-side mirror is approximately 18 to 22 degrees, but the LaneWatch™ display field-of-view is about four times greater, or approximately 80 degrees. The system helps the driver to see traffic, pedestrians or objects not always seen using the mirror alone. To help make judging distance easier, three reference lines are shown. Drivers should visually confirm roadway conditions prior to changing lanes.

LaneWatch™ can be customized to suit the driver's preferences. Turn-signal activation of the LaneWatch™ system can be switched on or off, as can the three on-screen reference lines. Screen brightness, contrast and black level are also adjustable.

Honda Sensing™
Comprised of a suite of safety and driver assistive features, Honda Sensing™ helps provide greater awareness of driving conditions around the vehicle. Honda Sensing™ is included as standard equipment on the Touring trim.

Honda Sensing™ features include the following:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)*4
  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW)*5 – Integrated with CMBS
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)*8
  • Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)*7
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW)*6 – Integrated with RDM
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)* with Low Speed Follow (LSF)*^

* First for Civic
^ First for Honda

Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)
In a first for Civic Coupe, Touring Coupe offers the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)4, one of the most sophisticated driver-assistive technologies available. A millimeter wave radar unit, located behind the front grille, and monocular camera, located between the rearview mirror and windshield, scans traffic conditions ahead of the Civic.

When the system determines a collision is possible with a detected vehicle, the integrated Forward Collision Warning (FCW)5 system's visual and audible alerts prompt the driver to take corrective actions. The visual alert appears on the Multi-Information Display (MID). If the situation is not resolved, CMBS can apply different levels of autonomous braking action to help reduce vehicle speed and eventual collision forces, and therefore to help reduce the severity of a collision if the driver doesn't take corrective action on their own. The radar unit and camera work simultaneously and cooperatively to control the VSA10 modulator, which initiates any required braking.

Due to the effectiveness of its monocular camera, CMBS can recognize shapes and differentiate between a vehicle and a pedestrian, warning the driver in each case. See the 2016 Civic CMBS animation for an active representation of system operation.

It is important to note that CMBS cannot detect all objects ahead, nor is it intended to replace the driver's assessment of traffic conditions and control of the vehicle. The driver must intervene in certain situations, and must always be attentive when using the system. Although in many cases CMBS will stop the vehicle, it is not intended to apply enough braking force to prevent all collisions. Based on the conditions, the system also may not perform all visual- and audible-alert stages, and may instead automatically engage the brakes if the system deems it necessary. CMBS may be turned off by pressing the CMBS button on the left side of the dash.

Forward Collision Warning (FCW) – Integrated with CMBS
In another Civic first, Forward Collision Warning (FCW)5 is included in Civic Touring Coupe. Integrated with CMBS, Forward Collision Warning (FCW) uses the monocular camera to detect vehicles ahead and to determine whether a collision is likely. This reduces the stress of driving in traffic, while also contributing to an increased level of passive safety.

If the FCW system detects a vehicle in front of the Civic and then determines that a collision may occur (due to a speed differential between the two vehicles), it will trigger visual and audible alerts for the driver. These include a "BRAKE" message on the Multi-Information Display (MID), and a series of beeps to alert the driver to apply the brake pedal. The FCW system will not automatically brake, and the driver remains responsible for safely operating the vehicle and avoiding collisions. If the driver doesn't respond to the FCW warnings, however, the CMBS is triggered into operation.

Drivers may adjust the distance at which FCW alerts occur by pressing the "SETTINGS" button, selecting "Vehicle Settings," and then choosing "Driver Assist System Setup" and the "Forward Collision Warning Distance" option. At this point they may choose between "Long," "Normal" or "Short." And if they choose to, drivers may also select "Off" to disable the FCW system entirely.

Note that the FCW system cannot detect all objects ahead and may not detect a given object; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and other factors.

Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
The Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)8 provides a less stressful driving experience by reducing the need for steering correction movements and driving effort on the highway. LKAS uses a camera to read lane markings and uses the Electric Power Steering to assist the driver in maintaining their position within the lane.

Designed for the U.S. road structure, the system uses a monocular camera mounted on the upper portion of the windshield to identify painted lanes, Botts' Dots and Cat Eye markers at speeds between 45 mph and 90 mph. When LKAS senses that the driver is drifting from the middle of a detected lane, the system generates corrective steering torque to assist the driver in maintaining lane position.

LKAS may be activated and deactivated using a switch located on the lower right part of the steering wheel. The system will suspend operation after several seconds if the driver takes his or her hands off the wheel, accompanied by a visual warning in the MID, resuming when the driver makes a steering input. See the 2016 Civic LKAS Animation for an active representation of system operation.

Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)
Integrating LDW6 (see below), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)7 uses a monocular camera (mounted on the upper portion of the windshield) to identify solid or dashed painted lane lines, Botts' dots and Catseye markers. RDM uses steering force, via EPS to help the Civic stay in its lane and, if the vehicle is detected leaving a lane marked by solid lines, braking force, via VSA10, to keep the vehicle from departing the lane or roadway altogether.

The monocular camera recognizes lane features and identifies the lane. If the RDM system determines that the Civic is about to leave a detected lane, it will provide steering assist (primary) and in rare occasions when steering assist is not sufficient to avoid leaving a lane marked by a solid line, braking assist, to help the driver stay on the road. RDM is integrated with the Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) system to provide moderate braking, and with the Electric Power Steering (EPS) system to provide steering input.

Multiple visual and audible warnings alert the driver when the RDM system is taking corrective action. These include a lane departure warning on the driver's Driver Information Interface (DII) along with an audible warning.

RDM also has a customizable initial warning of either a steering wheel shake/vibration, or an audible alert. This can be customized in the vehicle settings. RDM can be turned off by using the RDM Off button on the left of the dash. See the 2016 Civic RDM Animation for an active representation of system operation.

Lane Departure Warning (LDW) – Integrated with RDM
Lane Departure Warning (LDW)6 is designed to alert the driver if the vehicle is leaving a detected lane without the turn signal being activated. The system functions at speeds from 45 to 90 mph on straight or slightly curved roads, alerting the driver of deviations from a detected lane. The LDW system utilizes the same upper front windshield camera used for CMBS® and LKAS8 and provides the visual and auditory alerts prior to the other systems actively engaging.

If the vehicle begins to move out of a detected lane without the turn signal activated, LDW illuminates a Lane Departure message on the Multi-Information Display (MID) and sounds an audible warning, advising the driver to take appropriate action. The system can be activated and deactivated by pressing the LDW button located on the instrument panel, to the left of the steering column.

There are certain conditions under which the system may not engage or operate, including inclement weather (e.g., snow, ice or heavy rain) and extreme cabin heat (due to operability of the camera). The system will automatically suspend operation when the brakes are applied or the turn signals are used. LDW may not detect all lane markings or lane departures; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and road condition. The driver remains responsible for safely operating the vehicle.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow (LSF)
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)9 allows the driver to set a desired speed and following interval from a vehicle detected ahead, allowing the use of cruise control in light traffic conditions. This significantly reduces the driver stress of driving in traffic. The system uses the millimeter wave radar and monocular camera to continually track the distance to the vehicle detected ahead, and then adjusts the Civic's speed to maintain the set following interval. A short, medium, long, or extra-long interval can be selected When required, the Civic autonomously brakes using the Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®)10 modulator.

Integrated Low-Speed Follow (LSF) extends the automatic following capability to stop-and-go traffic situations (down to 0 mph).

ACC operates in the following ways in the listed circumstances:

  • A preceding vehicle is detected in the lane ahead – Decelerates automatically, if required, and then controls the following distance.
  • The preceding vehicle slows to a stop – Stops automatically and remains stationary.
  • The preceding vehicle accelerates from a stop – Resumes following when the SET or RES switch or accelerator pedal is operated.
  • Another vehicle merges in between the Civic and the preceding vehicle – Automatically switches "targets" to the nearest detected preceding vehicle.
  • The preceding vehicle exits the lane – ACC system continues at cruise-control speed previously selected by driver (25 to 90 mph).

A Driver Information Interface (DII) message and audible warning alert the driver when the ACC function is activated. See the 2016 Civic ACC Animation for an active representation of system operation.
