2018 Honda Civic: Performance & Efficiency
No matter your preference, with several different trim levels for the sedan, hatchback, and coupe models, there’s a Honda Civic that fits your needs. The standard LX trim comes equipped with a 4-cylinder engine that can produce 158 horsepower and is effortlessly controlled by either a 6-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable transmission.
Higher trims, such as the Touring, offer drivers a turbocharged engine that delivers 174 horsepower with a direct injection fuel system. For those in search of something truly athletic, the new Civic Si comes with a turbocharger engine that delivers up to 205 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque. All trims come standard with a Drive-by-Wire Throttle and Eco Assist„¢ for maximizing fuel economy.
Outfitted with a 12.39-gallon fuel tank, the Civic LX is perfectly designed for those looking to extend their driving range by providing an EPA-estimated 31/40/34 city/highway/combined MPG when equipped with a continuously variable transmission.*
2018 Honda Civic: Available Space & Technology
While the Civic certainly manages to outperform its competition under the hood, its cabin delivers a spacious interior that feels more like a midsize than its compact moniker suggests. Its standard sedan model provides 97.8 cubic feet of space with comfortable seating for up to five. In terms of cargo space, the Civic sedan offers 15.1 cubic feet rivaling much of its midsize competition.
Meanwhile, the Civic Hatchback offers drivers 25.7 cubic feet of space behind the second row, which quickly expands up to 46.2 cubic feet when the rear seat is lowered. Whichever version you decide on, you can expect a quiet and comfortable ride along with ample headroom and legroom to spare.
Convenience and Technology
Dashboard controls are laid out well and allow the driver to easily use them without having to reach or take their eyes off the road. Standard features, such as dual-zone automatic climate control, illuminated steering-wheel-mounted controls, and a center console with storage compartment, all ensure maximum comfort while out on the open highway.
