2012 Honda Civic at Fisher Honda is IIHS Top Safety Pick!

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), now-a-days, small cars are becoming much safer, and the 2012 Honda Civic is one of them. The 2012 Honda Civic has come a long way from earlier times when very few vehicles ever made the list.

The ratings are based on a cars performance in front, side, rollover, and rear impact evaluations. Vehicles that earn the top rating of “good” in each test category and have available electronic stability control or (ESC) are eligible to qualify for the “Top Safety Pick” award.

The new tests include both gasoline-only models and hybrids that rank among the most fuel-efficient vehicles that are available in the U.S. market.

In recent years small vehicles have made some big changes in their safety features. For example, all 2012 models and up, the government now mandates that all vehicles come standard with electronic stability control (ESC). Every Civic features the same standard, full line-up of safety features. Honda has dedicated themselves to implement advanced designs in order to increase the safety of their vehicles.
