Forward Collision Warning (FCW)

As your Civic Hybrid approaches a vehicle detected ahead of it, the Forward Collision Warning (FCW) system monitors the speed of the Civic and the closing distance of the vehicle ahead. If a collision appears likely and the brake is not applied or other avoidance actions taken, the system alerts the driver through visual and audible warnings. FCW cannot detect all objects ahead and may not detect a given object; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and other factors. System operation may be affected by extreme interior heat. FCW does not include a braking function, so the driver remains responsible for safely operating the vehicle and avoiding collisions.
