The new Honda Civic hatchback for the European market has been tested by Euro NCAP and we have good news: there are no horror stories, it’s decently safe and got the maximum five-star rating.
Since the Civic is a good looking toad of a car, we’d want to enjoy it by ourselves, with no kids, pedestrians or significant others concerning us. This is good because it scored a very impressive 94 percent rating for adult occupant protection, and only 83% in child protection.

he passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Test data showed good protection of the dummies' knees and femurs in the test but the facia either side of the steering wheel was thought to pose some risk to the knees of drivers of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. The car scored maximum points in the side barrier test and, in the more severe side pole impact, protection of the head, abdomen and pelvis was good while that of the chest was adequate, Euro NCAP says.

Trust us when we say that side impact test result are above average!

Euro NCAP announced that they are extending Honda’s Advanced NCAP reward for its CMBS technology to include the new Civic. “The reward recognises Honda‘s CMBS technology as amongst the best available safety innovations, offering proven benefits. Euro NCAP Advanced is an initiative developed in response to the rapid development of new safety technologies, for which there is no independent assessment,” Honda says.
