Combining striking, Euro-inspired styling and 5-door hatchback versatility with the world-class driving dynamics and Honda direct-injected turbo engine technology, the Civic is designed for buyers seeking an even more expressive, sporty and versatile car.
The Civic offers an appealing combination of sporty styling, efficiency, interior utility and premium features. The Civic is available in five trims: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L Navi and Sport Touring. All models are equipped with a 1.5-liter DOHC direct-injected and turbocharged in-line 4-cylinder engine with peak output of 174 horsepower in LX, EX and EX-L Navi trims, and 180 horsepower in the Sport and Sport Touring trims which feature a center-mounted dual exhaust system and are designed to benefit from premium unleaded fuel.
The turbocharged engine can be mated to either a sporty CVT (all trims) or a quick-shifting 6-speed manual transmission (LX and Sport trims). In LX, EX, and EX-L Navi models, EPA ratings of 31/40/34 mpg1 (city/highway/combined) for CVT-equipped models, and 30/39/33 mpg1 for the LX with manual transmission put the 5-door Honda Civic Hatchback at the top of its class for fuel economy ratings. The Sport and Sport Touring models equipped with the available Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) are rated at 30/36/32 mpg1, and the Sport with manual transmission is rated at 30/39/33 mpg1.
