Honda's Honda Sensing active safety features can protect loved ones by preventing accidents and reducing accident severity. The following active safety system is included even on lower trims/versions of the 2023 Honda Civic: Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS). Some safety features are optional on the 2023 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.
