2009 Civic Hybrids
In Your Area
3-Point Seat Belts with Front Seat Automatic Tensioning System
Front and rear 3-point seat belts with front seat automatic tensioning system ride across the lap and chest to help restrain occupants during sudden stops or impact.
Active Front Head Restraints
In a sufficient rear-end impact, the active front head restraints move forward and up, reducing the likelihood of neck injury.
Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure
ACE body structure incorporates a front-end frame structure that absorbs and disperses crash energy over a larger area. ACE increases Civic Hybrid passenger protection, and makes it more crash-compatible with vehicles of differing ride heights.
Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD)
The anti-lock braking system (ABS) uses a special modulator to pulse the brakes to help prevent wheel lockup. This helps the driver retain steering control when braking hard. The Electronic Brake Distribution system (EBD) balances the braking forces at each wheel according to how the car is dynamically loaded.
Battery Placement
The solid-cell design and central placement of the nickel-metal hydride (Ni-MH) battery pack help protect it.
Daytime Running Lights (DRL)
The Civic Hybrid enhances its visibility to others by incorporating Daytime Running Lights (DRL) up front.
Dual-Stage, Dual-Threshold Front Airbags (SRS)
In the event of a frontal impact, the dual-stage front airbags (SRS) inflate at different rates depending upon crash severity and seat belt use and are designed to help reduce the likelihood of head and upper-body injuries.
Front and Rear Crush Zones
The front and rear crush zones help provide driver and passenger protection in frontal and rear impacts.
Front Side Airbags with Passenger-Side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS)
In the event of a moderate-to-severe side impact, the side airbag inflates to help protect the driver’s or front passenger’s upper body. Plus the Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS) utilizes sensors in the front passenger’s seatback to detect the height and seating position of the occupant. If a child or small-statured adult is leaning into the deployment path of the side airbag, sensors deactivate it.
Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH)
All five seats are equipped with 3-point seat belts. The rear seat features the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) mounting system for use with compatible child seats.
Side Curtain Airbags
The side curtain airbag module is positioned along the side of the headliner. In the event of a sufficient side impact, this system will activate to help provide protection for both front and rear outboard passengers. A new type of inflator provides an exceptionally quick inflation time.
Side-Impact Door Beams on all Four Doors
The side-impact door beams help provide protection in a side impact.
Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control
This sophisticated safety system aids the driver in retaining control of the vehicle if side slippage is detected during understeer or oversteer conditions. When the driver is cornering or must make a sudden maneuver, the system will engage if traction loss is detected to help restore the driver’s intended course.
Wave Key and Immobilizer Theft-Deterrent System
The system immobilizes the engine’s fuel injection and ignition, and only a matching digital code in the ignition key can override it. When the driver puts the key into the ignition switch, the switch transmits a signal that reads the code in the key. If the key code agrees with the code in the powertrain control module (PCM), the engine starts.
