2022 Honda Civic Sedan Key Safety Features

Features like ABS and airbags, traction control, stability control, and EBD are standard in the 2022 Civic.

This is a bundled package of advanced safety features and driver assistance tech which adds more practicality and adds to the safety of the compact family sedan. 

2022 Honda Civic Safety Features
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS): This system works in tandem with the forward-collision warning system. It monitors the road ahead with the help of a front camera and radar sensors and if the system detects an imminent collision prompting the driver to brake immediately. In order to stop the vehicle effectively, the CMBS system steps in and provides additional brake support. This reduces the chances of a crash.
  • Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS): It uses camera and radar sensors to identify the lane markings on the freeway. If the vehicle deviates from its intended lane, it applies corrective action to steering inputs automatically to help the vehicle maintain lane discipline.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM): This system is somewhat similar to the LKAS system. The RDM system detects when the car sways out of its lane without signaling and provides necessary steering assistance to keep the car in the particular lane or from leaving the road entirely. 
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow: The Adaptive cruise control system has over time become quite a common safety feature. It employs a set of radar sensors to keep the car a set distance away from the car in front where you can cruise at a pre-set speed, without any interference from the driver. It is mostly used while driving on the highway. However, with low-speed following the onboard software has been updated to help the vehicle operate in low-speed conditions such as traffic jams.
  • Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Monitor: As standard, the vehicle comes equipped with proximity sensors on the sides which alert the driver if there is a vehicle approaching in the blind spot. Moreover, it also comes equipped with a cross-traffic monitor.
