Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2022 Honda Civic has a score of 74, implying a 0.049% chance of driver death (4.4% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2022 Honda Civic has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0492% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 5.6221%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0492% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 5.6221% chance of being injured.

Active safety features with Honda's Honda Sensing greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. The following active safety system is included even on lower trims/versions of the 2022 Honda Civic: Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS). Some safety features are optional on the 2022 Honda Civic--- although they add to the cost, one should consider the benefits of Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM) with Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) and Blind Spot Information System.

Another advanced safety feature --- while not cutting edge --- can still improve vehicle safety. Optional side mirror turn signals can help when you don't see a vehicle in your blind spot, by alerting them to your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other driver to avoid an accident with you.

And it is less safe than many comparable cars.
