Top Safety Pick+ is the higher of the Institute’s two awards. To earn the accolade, vehicles must come with good or acceptable headlights across all trims. For the lower-tier Top Safety Pick award, at least one good or acceptable headlight system must be available.

For either award, vehicles must earn good ratings in all six IIHS crashworthiness evaluations, including the driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests. They must also be available with a front crash prevention system that earns advanced or superior ratings in both the vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations.

With good-rated headlights standard on all trims and a new, standard front crash prevention system that earns superior ratings in both evaluations, both the Civic sedan and hatchback meet all the requirements for the higher-tier award.
