Video – Watch 2016 Honda Civic getting a 5-Star Safety Rating in IIHS Crash Test!

IIHS recently released a crash test video of small frontal overlap (a category tested) and a complete safety rating for 2016 Honda Civic. The new Civic did not disappoint as it managed to receive a ‘Good’ rating in all five categories tested just like its predecessor. While these crash tests provide a rough overview of vehicle safety, it must be noted that these ratings are issued for Honda Civic sold in the U.S. equipped with curtain airbags while in Pakistan, Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla offer customers with a maximum of two airbags for front passengers.

    Thanks God you are safe.

    You didn’t mention you were one of the occupants in the car when it crashed.
    Was somebody else hurt?

    Were it so awesome, why would it crash?

    Unless someone else came and hit your car, if it was involved in the crash, there was driver’s mistake or car’s fault, such as weak brakes, poor handling, etc. etc. etc. etc.

    somebody hit my car and my wife was with me too…….i was driving perfectly fine and he came and hit me hard from the back…….

    That’s the way to say it. Someone rammed your car from behind in a situation where any of the active or passive safety features of the car except the crash safety would work.

    I wonder how cars assembled in Pakistan would rate in these tests. Too bad our Govt doesn’t care about such safety standards.
