The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) revealed on January 14 that the all-new Honda Civic Sedan received the highest safety rating, the Top Safety Pick+ award.
To earn the IIHS’ Top Safety Pick award, a vehicle must get a “good” rating in the rollover, frontal, side, rear-end, and small overlap collision tests. Furthermore, the front crash prevention systems should earn a “basic” rating.
To earn the Top Safety Pick+ rating, the vehicle’s front crash prevention systems must get either the “advanced” or the “superior” ratings, which are the second highest and the highest ratings respectively in the three-tier rating program.
This time, the all-new Civic sedan managed to earn the IIHS’ 2016 Top Safety Pick+ award. It earned a “good” rating in all of the collision tests. Furthermore, its front-crash prevention system received a superior rating.
American Honda Senior Vice President Jeff Conrad said, “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.”
