"With advanced, unibody engineering, the greatest use of high-strength steel in Civic model history, and a wide array of advanced passive-safety features, the 2016 Civic Sedan was designed to achieve a superb level of active and passive safety performance for vehicle occupants – as well as for the occupants of other vehicles and other road users, including motorcycle and bicycle riders and pedestrians.

For the first time, Civic can be equipped with Honda Sensing™, among the most comprehensive suites of safety and driver-assistive technologies in the competitive class, including the first application of Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow to a Honda vehicle.

Standard passive-safety features such as a new driver's Spiral Airbag and a new front passenger's safety vent airbag, SmartVent® front side airbags, and side curtain airbags with rollover sensor help protect occupants in a collision. In addition, the greater use of high-strength steel and advanced crash engineering features, including its Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, new crash stroke front frame rails, and tailor-tempered B-pillars and rear frame structures, helps better protect occupants in a collision while minimizing weight for superior fuel efficiency."

The Honda global platform, (also similar Toyota, and Subaru next year ), is impressive.
See,,ToV civic body in white cutaway, you tube,, also (tov powertrain)
Like you say hot stamped UHS, and an engine intrusion vault link. The offset crash test video is also available.
Edit:There are complaints of thin or inappropriate steel skin near the rear window being dented by car washes etc.
