The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has named the Honda Civic Sedan lineup the 2011 Top Safety Pick award, and the civic has been the Top Safety Pick award winner since 2008. That being said, the Honda Civic Hybrid Sedan for 2012 has several safety features such as the Vehicle Stability Assist that senses when the car over steers or under steers adjusting the pressure at each wheel while reducing engine power so that the driver can regain control of the vehicle. The anti lock brakes are also standard safety features. There is also the Tire Pressure Monitoring system that lets the driver know when a tire is running low on air. Airbags are also distributed on the vehicle: rear, front, curtains, and sides. Honda also engineered the Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure which evens out the force on the front in cases of frontal collisions, further protecting the occupants.
