NHTSA Safety Ratings

The National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA)* puts vehicles through a series of crash tests corresponding to the three most common types of highway accidents: the frontal crash, side crash, and rollover scenario. Ultimately, more stars mean a safer car on the NHTSA 5-star scale. Here’s how the 2020 Civic 4-door FWD performed in NHTSA crash tests:

  • Frontal Crash: 4 Stars
  • Side Crash: 5 Stars
  • Rollover: 5 Stars
  • Overall: 5 Stars

IIHS Safety Ratings

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)** is another entity that conducts comprehensive crash tests in an effort to reduce the harm done to people and property in accidents. They evaluate two categories of vehicle safety: crashworthiness (how well a vehicle protects its passengers) and crash avoidance and mitigation (technologies in place to help prevent a crash or reduce its intensity). Rather than stars, their scale uses good, acceptable, marginal, and poor, or superior, advanced, and basic. The 2020 Honda Civic LX 4-door sedan

earned the following ratings:

  • Small Overlap Front Driver Side: Good
  • Small Overlap Front Passenger Side: Good
  • Moderate Overlap Front: Good
  • Side: Good
  • Roof Strength: Good
  • Head Restraints and Seats: Good
  • Headlights: Poor
  • Front Crash Prevention: Superior with optional equipment
