Honda Civic Coupe Scores Top Safety Pick+ Award From IIHS

The 2016 Honda Civic Coupe has been awarded with a Top Safety Pick Plus by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), when equipped with a front crash prevention system.

Joining its predecessor in the small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint evaluations, the new two-door scored ‘Good’ earnings, while its front crash prevention system, which is an optional feature available with the Honda Sensing banner, has assured a ‘Superior’ rating.

IIHS’ engineers put the new Civic Coupe through its paces in track tests at 12 mph (19 km/h) and 25 mph (40 km/h) only to discover that the car avoided collisions when equipped with the safety tech; note that the system includes a forward collision warning, which meets the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) criteria.

Honda Civic Coupe’s Top Safety Pick Plus follows the Civic Sedan’s ‘Superior’ rating, as the four-door model was tested earlier this year, scoring ‘Good’ in the five crash test models, including the small overlap front, while the optional frontal crash prevention was rated ‘Superior’.
