2011 Honda Civic Sedan Named TOP SAFETY PICK by IIHS


The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) is renowned within the car industry as being sticklers for safety. Last year, the IIHS upped the criteria for TOP SAFETY PICKs by adding a roof-strength assessment to test the protection of a rollover crash. Cars awarded the designation of TOP SAFETY PICK from the IIHS wear a badge of honor.

2011 Honda Civic four-door models (excluding the SI) now wear that badge within the small car category. In order to earn such a distinction, the vehicles had to pass a stringent series of safety tests. In addition to the roof-strength tests, these include:

– Frontal crash tests
– Side crash tests
– Rear crash test
– Seat/head restrain tests

In addition to the IIHS naming the 2011 Honda Civic vehicles a 2011 TOP SAFETY PICK, editors from Kelly Blue Book’s have declared the Civic best all-around car within its class (compact sedan). Under strengths listed, “Well built. Well rounded. World class.” The editors went on to say, “We interrupt this comparison test to reconfirm some old news. The Honda Civic is a great car… everything the car does it does well.”
