Following a series of tests conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the 2013 Honda Civic Sedan and Coupe have both been selected for TOP SAFETY PICK+ ratings, the highest rating possible in the study.

Industry-wide, the Civic is the only small car to earn the TOP SAFETY PICK + rating. The Civic joins the Honda Accord Sedan and Coupe in its top safety rating, while all Honda cars tested in the study received at least a TOP SAFETY PICK designation from the IIHS, demonstrating the manufacturer’s dedication to safety on the road.

The 2013 Civic comes standard with a variety of security features that led to its top rating, including the ACE II body design that allows the car to perform better in multiple crash situations. Other standard Civic safety technologies include Vehicle Stability Assist, front and side airbags and anti-lock brakes.

“If you want a compact car with a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating, the 2013 Honda Civic is the only choice,” said Art St. Cyr, a Honda spokesperson.
