Surprising Features of the Honda Civic


The Honda Civic has been one of Honda’s most popular vehicles for years, thanks to its exceptional dependability and safety—and the latest model is no exception, as it successfully lives up to the Civic’s reputation as one of the most reliable vehicles on the market. Here is a brief breakdown of what you can expect from the new Honda Civic.

Newly-Redesigned Engine

When people think of the Civic, they typically think of its safety and budget-friendly cost before they think of its power. However, the latest model turns this on its head by providing the usual reliability while also being quite fun to drive. The new Honda Civic has a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers an astounding 143 horsepower and 129 lb-ft of torque that makes accelerating, shifting, and driving a fast, smooth, and extremely efficient experience.

Fuel Mileage Galore

The new Honda Civic boasts an impressive 30 city and 39 highway miles per gallon, which is several miles more than many competitor vehicles get. The Civic is able to deliver above-average fuel economy thanks to its CVT (continuously variable transmission), so you’ll enjoy smooth shifting every time you’re behind the wheel.

Truckload of Tech and Gadgets

Most standard vehicles come with very few entertainment gadgets and functions to enhance your driving experience. However, Honda has added a ton of tech features and infotainment options in the new standard Civic model. Features include automatic climate control, Pandora, SMS text capabilities, the Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, and the optional Honda LaneWatch to enable you to see everything behind you by eliminating blind spots. The infotainment system allows you to hookup and control your entertainment with voice commands, to minimize driving distractions. You can even connect to other devices using the USB interface.

Compact Size with a Roomy Interior

Many compact size vehicles lack the comfort of interior space, but not the new Honda Civic. Although its sleek, stylish, and compact exterior design suggests it doesn’t have much to offer in terms of space, you’ll likely find yourself surprised when you look inside. The Honda Civic now has 92.1 to 94.6 cubic feet of space for passengers (depending on which model you own) and 12.5 cubic feet of cargo space. This is significantly more space than its predecessors, making it much more compatible and desirable for drivers who want an economical, stylish, and affordable compact vehicle but are concerned with space.

Honda has really outdone itself with their redesigned Civic. Not only does it have a ton of newly improved tech and performance features, its new sleek, sporty design and affordability make it the vehicle of choice for drivers who want the best of what the automotive industry has to offer.
