2016 Honda Civic Sedan Gets Top Safety Score

More accolades for new 10th generation Honda Civic Sedan.

The all-new 2016 Honda Civic Sedan has continued a successful week with the acceptance of a top safety score from the U.S. testing authority, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

Just days after winning the coveted 2016 North American Car of the Year award, the new model from Honda has received the highest available rating of TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the IIHS.

The new Honda Civic scored a SUPERIOR rating for frontal crash prevention.

Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of Honda Cars North America, says the top safety score is welcomed enthusiastically.

“As these new safety ratings demonstrate, the 2016 Civic Sedan not only brings new value to the compact segment with its hefty upgrades to fun-to-drive performance, fuel efficiency, refinement and technology, it also delivers advanced collision safety performance,”

“With its available Honda Sensing technologies, including our first application of Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, the new Civic Sedan offers customers a suite of technologies unlike anything else in the class.”

The 10th-generation Honda Civic Sedan will arrive in Australia later this year.
