According to above mentioned blog link, in my understanding:
1. Standard (with Base Model Trim): The new Civic comes with better and improved brakes with Electric Brake Distribution [EBD] with Brake Assist.
2. Standard (with Base Model Trim): The traditional handbrake is replaced with an electric parking brake as well as an Automatic Brake Hold (ABH). ABH maintains rear brake hold even after the brake pedal is released. This is a very nice feature in a start-stop traffic as you can remove the foot from the brake paddle and the car will remain in gear until you press the accelerator again.
3.Touring Trim *(with US Only Upper Level Trim) Honda Sense - Collision Mitigation Braking: Honda active safety features known as ”Honda Sense” is available while its standard feature on Touring trim. Adaptive Cruse Control “ACC” lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, road departure mitigation, forward collision warning and collision mitigation braking are part of this package.
* Although, The Honda Sensing package can be added to any trim level (base model trim level) for an extra cost of only $1000.
