What’s the Benefit?
Civic’s front side airbags help enhance driver and front-passenger protection in a side impact.
Front side airbags are standard on all Civic Hatchback models.
In the event of a moderate-to-severe side impact, the SmartVent® side airbag is designed to deploy and inflate quickly to maximize potential protection for properly seated occupants, helping to protect the driver’s or front passenger’s upper body from injury.
The side airbags are designed to vent before fully inflating if an occupant is in the side airbag deployment path, thereby decreasing the likelihood of an airbag-related injury.
