Structures in the dashboard presented a potential hazard to the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. The accelerator pedal moved rearward more than 100mm posing some threat to the driver's lower legs and ankles.
Honda dealers can disconnect the Civic's front passenger airbag to allow rearward-facing child restraints to be used in that seating position. The presence of ISOFIX anchorages in the rear outboard seats was not prominently marked.
Both the bumper and the leading edge of the bonnet scored maximum points for the protection they offered to the legs of pedestrians. The part of the bonnet likely to be struck by a child's head was also rated predominantly 'fair'.
