The 2020 Honda Civic has drivers taking notice of its sleek styling and performance. Yet, beyond the surface appeal, the Honda Civic offers a reliable reputation, as well as a myriad of modern safety features and driver assists to satisfy your practical side. Below, you’ll find our guide to the Honda Civic safety ratings and features that make the new Civic a top choice for Cordova shoppers.

NHTSA Safety Ratings

When assessing vehicles, the National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA)* puts them through a series of crash tests corresponding to the three most common types of highway accidents: the frontal crash, side crash, and rollover scenario. Here’s how the 2020 Civic 4-door FWD performed in NHTSA crash tests:

  • Frontal Crash: 4 Stars
  • Side Crash: 5 Stars
  • Rollover: 5 Stars
  • Overall: 5 Stars

IIHS Safety Ratings

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)** evaluates two categories of vehicle safety: crashworthiness and crash avoidance and mitigation. This rates how well a vehicle protects its passengers and the technologies in place to help prevent a crash or reduce its intensity. The highest rating in every category is “Good” — except for Front Crash Prevention in which “Superior” is the highest rating. The 2020 Honda Civic LX 4-door sedan earned the following ratings:

  • Small Overlap Front Driver Side: Good
  • Small Overlap Front Passenger Side: Good
  • Moderate Overlap Front: Good
  • Side: Good
  • Roof Strength: Good
  • Head Restraints and Seats: Good
  • Front Crash Prevention: Superior with optional equipment
