Honda Civic Safety
Honda believes that there shouldn’t be an extra price to help keep your loved ones safe. For that reason, Honda has included Honda Sensing® Safety & Driver-Assistive Technologies as standard on all models. In addition, several other standard and optional safety features are available to assure your comfort and confidence behind the wheel.
Learn all about how the safety features work to help keep those in the City of Industry, El Monte, and La Puente areas safe in this 2020 Honda Civic safety review from Norm Reeves Honda Superstore West Covina.

Standard Honda Sensing® Technologies
There are six key aspects of the Honda Sensing® safety features built into your Honda Civic. These features work to be your eyes and ears of the roads 24/7.
These six key aspects are:
- Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)
- Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
- Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
- Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM)
- Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow
Not only are these features built into your Honda Civic to help keep you safe, but they’re built in to work with one another. Take for instance the Forward Collision Warning (FCW) system and the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™).
Forward Collision Warning (FCW) uses sensors to detect and monitor the distance of vehicles in front of you. If the FCW system detects you’re approaching too quickly to the vehicle in front of you, a series of audible and visual alerts will sound. If, however, there’s no response with the FCW system, the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) is triggered.
As a failsafe, the CMBS™ system is enabled when your Civic detects that a frontal collision is unavoidable. Automatic brake pressure is applied to reduce the severity or overall impact of the collision. This system can even bring your Civic to a stop if need be.
Optional Honda Civic Safety Features
Have you ever wanted a safer way to change lanes? Sure, you can look over your shoulder to see if any other vehicles are in your blind spot, but that means taking your eyes off the road for a period of time. Wouldn’t it be nice if you had an assistant to give advice when changing lanes? Well, thanks to the available Honda LaneWatch™ system, changing lanes just got a little bit safer.
With this feature, a camera is mounted to the underside of the passenger sideview mirror. When the turn signal is activated, a live feed is streamed from the camera onto the center display screen. This feature allows drivers to get a clear picture of the world around them without having to move. Overall, the Honda LaneWatch™ system allows for a safer and more seamless lane change.
Backing Up Is a Breeze
Whether you prefer to back into spots or back out of them, the standard Multi-Angle Rearview Camera can make reversing your Civic as easy as 1-2-3. The 3-view camera angle—normal, top-down, and wide—can offer an aided reversing experience.
In addition to having a nearly spherical view of the back of your car, the Multi-Angle Rearview Camera provides a series of parking guidelines to alert you to how near or far you are from an object. These lines offer distance measurements and sideways guides, so you can perfectly maneuver a 10/10 park job each and every time.
