2013 Honda Civic Named a Top Safety Pick Plus



The 2013 Honda Civic was named an IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus.

The redesigned 2013 Honda Civic was named an IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus, the highest safety rating a vehicle can receive. The Civic is now the first and only small car to receive the IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus designation.

“If you want a compact car with a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating, the 2013 Honda Civic is the only choice,” said Art St. Cyr, vice president of product planning and logistics at American Honda. “We believe this is a distinct competitive advantage, especially as more and more consumers place a premium on crash rating performance.”

Top Safety Pick Plus is the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s newest top ranking, which separates out the best of best for safety. IIHS scores the 2013 Honda Civic Good in the moderate overlap front test results, Good for the small overlap front test, good for side impact test results, and good for roof strength test. To achieve Top Safety Pick Plus status, a vehicle  must receive a score of good in at lease 4 of 5 tests and no less than acceptable in the fifth test. Less than 20 vehicles across the United State have been designated as a Top Safety Pick Plus.

The Honda Civic was redesigned in 2013.  Design improvements include a new redesigned front grille and new headlights, the rear was also redesigned with new taillights, new chrome line and new sporty styled wheels. Standard features across the board include a Backup Camera and Bluetooth.

The ACE™II reinforced body structure found on the 2013 Civic further enhances frontal crash energy through a wider range of these offset and oblique collision scenarios.

Additional standard safety equipment on all Civic models include Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with traction control; an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS); side curtain airbags; dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags; and driver and front passenger side airbags.

The 2013 Honda Civic joins the 2013 Honda Accord as IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus choices. Ten 2013 Honda models have received Top Safety Pick designations, including the 2013 Honda Fit, 2013 Honda Crosstour, 2013 Honda CR-Z, 2013 Honda CR-V, 2013 Honda Insight, 2013 Honda Pilot, 2013 Honda Odyssey, and 2013 Honda Ridgeline.
