Additional Info:

PRETENSION and LOAD LIMITER:

In the event of a collision, a pretensioner tightens the seatbelt to keep the body firmly in place. Then, the load limiter reduces seatbelt pressure on the chest to help avoid injury.


HEADREST DESIGNED FOR NECK SUPPORT:

Upper body protection is essential to collision safety. Seating includes a special headrest and cushion, optimally designed to mitigate neck injury, guarding against whiplash.


DUAL FRONT SRS AIRBAGS:

In addition to ELR setbelt with pretensioner and load limiter features, SRS airbags for both the driver and front passenger inflate to cushion the head and chest against injury.


OUTSTANDING ALL-ROUND PROTECTION:

Honda's original G-Force Control technology is aimed at maintaining the structural integrity of the cabin by controlling ad absorbing the g-force of a collusion. Already acclaimed for its safety shielding with arched side frames to direct energy from the bumpers away from the passenger's "survival zone", the City is now enhanced for even greater protection with an extended front end design.

ADDITIONAL INFO (PERFORMANCE) :

VARIABLE VALVE TIMING WITH INTELLIGENCE (VVT-i)

The VIOS is equipped with a continuous variable valve timing mechanism, the VVT-i. By optimising the timing of the valves, the engine promises performance whether you are accelerating, cruising or overtaking. The heart of the VIOS is incredibly responsive, making changes in 1/1000th of a second. By optimising valve timing, the engine delivers solid torque through low-to-medium rpms. The efficient combustion uses fuel more effectively for improved performance.


DRAG: CD=0.30 (COEFFICIENCY OF DRAG) :

The VIOS doesn't only look fast, it is fast. each part of it was examined for its impact on aerodynamics. The result: a Cd figure equalling that of a sports car and a sleekness made for the young at heart. As you head towards your destination, its aerodynamics improve the VIOS's acceleration, drivalibility and efficiency.


SUSPENSION:

The suspensions is a lightweight, compact-sized wonder that promises a smooth ride. MacPherson Strut with Stabilizer are employed in front for the ultimate steering response and linearity. The rear of the VIOS is supported by ETA Beams with Stabilizers, offering the best of independent and rigid-type suspensions.

P.S: Tak pilih VIOS or City, pilih CIVIC pun OK.
