IIHS rated the 2016 Civic Coupe's front crash prevention system as superior

The redesigned model year 2016 2-door Honda Civic Coupe equipped with an available front crash prevention system has earned the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's (IIHS) Top Safety Pick+ award.

Like the previous version of the small car, the 2016 Civic Coupe earned good ratings in the Institute's small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint evaluations.

A new feature to the 2016 Civic Coupe is the optional front crash prevention system. In IIHS track tests at speeds of 12 mph and 25 mph, a two-door Civic equipped with the technology avoided collisions. The system also includes a forward collision warning system that meets National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) criteria.

The 4-door 2016 Honda Civic was also named an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ earlier this year.

To qualify for the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ award, the Institute's highest honor, a vehicle must have good ratings in all five crashworthiness tests and an available front crash prevention system that earns an advanced or superior rating.
