2022 Honda Civic earns IIHS Top Safety Pick +

The 2022 Civic is one of the safest compact cars on the market

  • This is the highest distinction given by the institute

  • Both the sedan and hatchback versions of the Civic have received the award

  • Apart from the Civic, only the Honda Insight, Mazda 3 and Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid are rated Top Safety Pick + in the small car category

The 2022 Honda Civic has just received the IIHS’ Top Safety Pick + award due to its very good performance in multiple crash test scenarios.

This award is the highest that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gives and it signifies the new Civic, introduced for the 2022 model year, is safer than the previous generation, but also most of its competitors.

Six tests are conducted by the IIHS to determine the safety of new cars in a variety of possible situations.

The 2022 Civic performed flawlessly during the Small Overlap on the driver’s side, achieving the best rating (“Good”) for every metrics. The same can be applied to the passenger side, except for the lower leg / foot protection where it scored the second-best note (“acceptable”)

The moderate overlap, side impact and roof strength tests all achieved the “Good” rating, as did the headrests and seats’ ability to protect the occupants in the event of a rear-end collision.

The IIHS also looks at collision warning and avoidance systems, so a vehicle must earn a “Superior” or “advanced” rating of its active safety systems in order to qualify for a Top Safety Pick + award. The Civic received the best rating in every tested situation.

The new Civic is one of the safest vehicles in its class, because only the Honda Insight, the Mazda 3 and the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid have earned the Top Safety Pick + award in the “small car” category.

The Hyundai Elantra and Veloster, the Kia Forte and Soul, the Nissan Sentra, the Subaru Impreza and gasoline powered Crosstrek, as well as the Toyota Corolla have all received the Institute’s second rating, the Top Safety Pick award. The previous generation of Civic was also part of this group.
