ARLINGTON, Va. — The redesigned 2-door Honda Civic earns the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's Top Safety Pick+ award when equipped with an available front crash prevention system, which earns a superior rating.

Like the previous version of the small car, the 2016 model earns good ratings in the Institute's small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint evaluations.

A new feature is the optional front crash prevention system. In IIHS track tests at 12 mph and 25 mph, a two-door Civic equipped with the technology avoided collisions. The system also includes a forward collision warning system that meets National Highway Traffic Safety Administration criteria.

The 4-door Civic's Top Safety Pick+ award was announced earlier.

To qualify for the Institute's top award a vehicle must have good ratings in all five crashworthiness tests and an available front crash prevention system that earns an advanced or superior rating.
