Today, it comes as a coupe or sedan. You can buy four different engine sizes: the 1.5L 4-cylinder hybrid, the 1.8L 4-cylinder engine 110 hp, the 1.8L 4-cylinder engine 143 hp, or the 2.4L 4-cylinder engine 205 hp.
Different types of Honda Civic transmissions
There are also four different types of transmission packages: CVT, 6-speed manual, 5-speed automatic or 5-speed manual.
The 1.5L 4-cylinder hybrid gets 45 mpg combined, while its unique natural gas engine gets 31 mpg combined.
The biggest benefits to the natural gas engine are that its fuel is much cheaper and crash tests carried out on natural gas vehicles prove that they are much more resistant to collisions – explosions/fires.
The Civic’s trim levels are quite exhaustive, but there are some honorable mentions in the aforementioned hybrid and natural gas models.
Both models feature a 7″ and the Honda Link synchronization program. Both sport expanded driver view mirrors and a Lane Watch display to increase driving safety.
Both have exclusive offers too. The hybrid has smart entry with push-button starting and a CVT transmission.
The natural gas model comes in a leather trim model that has heated seats, heated side mirrors and some interior upgrades with a 5-speed automatic transmission.
Most Civic models are priced from R$38,000 – R$ 80,000
What sets the Civic apart is its fuel economy – All models had combined mpgs between 29 – 45 mpg, scored high in every government crash test, and were built with very spacious interiors for such small cars!
Honda Civic and its details
For the person more concerned about sports cars, the SI Trim level has a 6-speed manual with an excitable throttle engine that still gets 29 mpg.
Civics have some pitfalls. While the interior is spacious, the front seats are a bit cramped for larger customers. The command console is quite confusing and complicated to use.
The steering is known for being a bit stiff and the cabin also has a lot of road noise. Despite all these complaints, the sleek style and great savings are keeping a loyal following of repeat customers.
