IIHS has released a video of the 2016 Honda Civic Sedan in their crash test. What do you guys think of the crumpling and airbags? The airbags look like they perfectly hug your head during a crash but not sure about the crumple zone.


Here's the score for the 2016 Honda civic Sedan on the IIHS site.

CRASHWORTHINESS (G stands for Good, the highest score available)
Small overlap front
G
Moderate overlap front
G
Side

That's amazing, A Pillars weren't even compromised and the cabin seem to have held up well, doubt there was much moving around the footwell area to injure the driver or passenger. Hopefully the coupe ranks just as well.

Looks good to me, just like the 9th gen. tests. The front is supposed to crumple in the small offset test. It's what keeps the folks in the passenger cabin alive. The air bags look good to me also. I'll chalk it up to a plus for the 10th gen.

Exactly. As long as the structure of the cabin isn't comprimised, i'm good :D

Looking good. Wonder how it would take a side shot, like you see in my avatar pic. I was OK in that wreck, just a broken back but I lived. Can't help but think if I had a passenger, they might not have made it.

Looks good to me, it got the highest markings you can get. Can't ask for better than that.

Too bad I couldn't find a video of a side crash test but the Honda civic scored G in that area so I assume it's just as safe as a frontal crash. My main concern was footwell area being compromised in a frontal hit.

I expect new vehicles to be pretty darn safe. With all the stuff in the news recently, I think that the newest vehicles are likely the most safe ones you can buy.

Found a picture of the foot well after the crash and it looks like nothing much happened to the legs. Good news for everyone!
