Just after Nissan's announced new safety tech, Honda has released the last of five films on the development of the 2012 euro-spec Civic, this time the topic is safety features.

The technologies here help make the Civic one of the most competitive offerings in the C-segment in Europe.

The new Honda Civic features an Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure designed to maintain the integrity of the cabin cell in the event of a crash. It also has a collision avoidance system called Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) which can warn a driver of an impending crash or reduce the impact of a collision by means of adjusting the braking.

The new Civic also comes with a pedestrian-detection technology to help avoid accidents between the car and passersby.
