Honda Civic Technology Features

  • 2016 Honda Civic

    The 2016 Honda Civic technology features are one of our favorite parts to show off on the vehicle.

    Whether the sedan or the coupe, the Civic has some of the best in connectivity and safety features, and it’s available now at a Central Illinois Honda Dealer near you.

Connectivity Features

Honda knows that many drivers need to stay connected behind the wheel, and that’s why the Civic includes a wide range of standard and available tech features. From the standard Bluetooth to satellite-linked navigation, the cabin of the Civic is state-of-the-art.

  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink: Pair your smartphone or other device with the Civic to stream audio wirelessly and make hands-free phone calls.
  • Display Audio Touchscreen: The available 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen brings an intuitive interface to manage your media and upgrades the Civic to include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay: Some phones used to have trouble talking with a car and working how they should, but with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, you’ll have a seamless connectivity experience with familiar apps.
  • HondaLink: Honda’s telematics system lets you take care of routine maintenance with a few taps, and when you’re in the cabin, the Civic can stream directly from your podcast library, radio stations, or social media feed via Aha.
  • Navigation: The available satellite-linked navigation system routes you around traffic and construction as well as illustrating points of interest on the way to your destination. Voice controls make it easy to plug in destinations without ever taking your hands off the wheel.

Advanced Safety

The Honda Civic technology features above help keep you connected, but we think the most important technologies on the vehicle make the Civic one of the safest cars on the road. From the standard multi-angle rearview camera and array of airbags to the available Honda LaneWatch camera (see our video) and these advanced Honda Sensing features, the Civic is built for safety.


Honda Civic Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control: This safety feature checks the speeds of other vehicles and adjusts your cruise control automatically to keep pace with them.

Honda Civic Forward Collision Warning

Forward Collision Warning: Monitoring the speeds of other vehicles with the same system as Adaptive Cruise Control makes it possible to alert the driver to a potential forward collision with this safety feature.

Honda Civic Collision Mitigation Braking System

Collision Mitigation Braking System: When a driver doesn’t respond to the Forward Collision Warning, this safety feature can engage the brakes automatically to slow or stop the Civic.

Honda Civic Road Depature Mitigation

Road Departure Mitigation System: By watching markings on the side of the road, this feature issues warnings and alerts the driver to potential departure from the road, even correcting the course to keep the Civic on the pavement.

Honda Civic Lane Depature Warning

Lane Departure Warning: A front-mounted camera watches the lane markings and issues warnings if it senses a drift from the center of the lane.

Honda Civic Lane Keeping Assist

Lane Keeping Assist System: If a driver doesn’t respond to warnings about drifting from the lane, the Lane Keeping Assist System can adjust torque and engine speed to keep the vehicle centered in its lane.

Compare to the Competition

Looking at the Honda Civic technology features on their own is just part of the picture; you should see how some of its top competitors compare. Our comparison tool lets you see in-depth reviews, but here’s a quick snapshot:

  • Ford Focus: The 2016 Ford Focus really owns the “small” in “small car,” and while it does have some features that put it close to the Civic, it falls short in connectivity and safety options as well as its often cramped cabin.
  • Chevy Cruze: While the Cruze might have a better features package than some small cars, like the Focus, it comes up short on amenities many drivers expect. Chevy still requires upgrades for cruise control and climate control, let alone more advanced options.
  • Nissan Sentra: Our full 2016 Nissan Sentra review covers all of the differences, but the short of it is that Nissan’s sedan requires upgrades for many Civic standard features and lacks anything comparable to the Honda Sensing package.

Test Drive a Civic

Now that you’ve seen what the 2016 Honda Civic technology features have to offer, let us show you the Civic in action. With five trim levels and two engine options, we’re confident there’s a Civic at Central Illinois Honda Dealers that’s just waiting for you to drive home.
