2013 Honda Civic Safety Ratings
How important is vehicle safety to you? This seems like an obvious question, because something as important as vehicle safety should be important to everyone. And since safety is a universal necessity, consumers should take notice of the 2013 Honda Civic safety ratings. The 2013 Honda Civic Sedan recently received Top Safety Pick+ designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety as well as a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The scores mean the new Civic Sedan and Coupe both received the highest possible safety ratings.
The 2013 Honda Civic safety ratings are an accomplishment that doesn’t just happen every day. In fact, the Civic Sedan and Civic Coupe are the first small cars to earn top safety billing from both major safety companies. For the Civic to essentially be in a class by itself like this, it’s pretty obvious that Honda takes safety very seriously.
The 2013 Honda Civic safety ratings are a product of an overall dedication to safety in the vehicle manufacturing process. And this all starts with the structure of the vehicle. The Civic features the Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure. In basic terms, this means that the Civic has a tough outer shell that protects occupants, but contains many energy dispersing elements to allow the right areas to crush, keeping the force of an accident away from occupants as best as possible.
As expected, the high safety standards for the Civic are also due to the complex air bag systems in place in the vehicle. Honda has taken into account many different accident factors when deciding where the air bags should be in the Civic. The result is a plethora of air bags, including side curtain airbags, dual-stage multi-threshold front air bags, as well as standard driver and front passenger air bags.
The completed project results in one of the safest vehicle options on the roads today. And when you take into account the performance and efficiency of the Civic as well, it’s tough to pass it up. Still want to know more? Contact Benson Honda and get the latest pricing and other info.
