Eco mode reduces throttle and transmission sensitivity, as well as air conditioning output to help preserve fuel efficiency.
Advancing Safety Performance
Continuing a longstanding tradition of advancing safety performance, the Honda Civic introduces multiple new active and passive safety systems including the full suite of Honda Sensing® Technologies:
- The Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure has been enhanced for even better compatibility with larger vehicles with improved occupant protection in angled frontal collisions, with a new upper A-pillar structure, side frame and lower firewall structure, all designed to route crash energy around the cabin
- Honda Lanewatch™ uses a camera installed below the right passenger-side mirror to relay an image of the area on the right side of the vehicle to the central display screen
- The Honda Civic is equipped with Tire Pressure Monitoring System, an electronic system that reports real-time tire-pressure information to the driver of the vehicle, through a simple low-pressure warning light
- Vehicle Stability AssistTM (VSA®) with Traction Control to support during an oversteer or understeer condition, VSA can brake individual wheels and/or reduce engine power to help restore your intended course
- Rear Seat Reminder, a new safety feature that notifies the driver to check the rear seat when the ignition is turned off.
A first on the All-New Honda Civic is the Honda Sensing® suite of active safety and driver assistive technologies, that use a new single-camera system which provides a wider field of view than the previous radar-and-camera based system. Combined with software advances and a new, more powerful processor, the system is also capable of more quickly and accurately identifying other vehicles, along with road lines and road signs.
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) helps reduce the likelihood of a frontal impact, bringing the car to a stop if the system determines that a collision with a vehicle detected in front or a pedestrian is unavoidable. A warning sounds, and if necessary, brake pressure is automatically applied.
- Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM) uses the windscreen-mounted camera to detect whether the car is veering out of its lane. It applies subtle corrections to keep the vehicle in its lane, and in certain situations can also apply braking force and provide a tactile warning
- Forward Collision Warning (FCW) scans the road ahead to warn drivers of a potential collision and provides visual and audible alerts to prompt the driver to take corrective actions to avoid a potential hazard
- Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) helps keep you in the middle of your lane, providing a less stressful driving experience by reducing the need for steering correction movements and driving effort on the motorway
- Lane Departure Warning (LDW) is activated if the car moves out of its lane without the indicator being activated whereby an alert will flash and sound, to help bring your attention to correcting the lane drift
- Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) allows the driver to set a desired speed and following distance from a vehicle detected ahead, allowing the Civic to adjust its speed automatically for a safe and comfortable journey
- Low Speed Follow (LSF) system uses monocular camera mounted to the windshield to continually track the distance to the detected vehicle ahead and adjusts the Civics’ speed to maintain the set distance.
The All-New Honda Civic is now available across Honda showrooms in the UAE, located at Dubai Festival City, Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Fujairah, Sharjah, and Ras Al Khaimah.
