Honda is as reliable a car brand as any in the auto industry. No vehicle quite shows off Honda’s ability to stand out as a vehicle that passes the test of time like a Honda Civic can. That’s due to how expertly built the famous Japanese car brand makes their vehicles. Since the massive boom that Honda experienced in the United States nearly forty years ago, the future of Honda looks even greater considering how ahead of the curve today’s current Honda vehicles look and run. Let’s bring our focus to the latest Honda in the 2018 Honda Civic.
The Honda Civic reached its tenth generation in 2016. Now three years into this generation, there’s noticeable advantages to the 2018 Honda Civic. There’s two engine choices available for this year’s Civic. Stylish, reliable and quick driving is expected with every Honda Civic and that’s highly possible with the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine and available turbocharged 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that reaches up to 180 horsepower. Owners can chose between a slick-shifting six-speed manual transmission or go with a highly responsive CVT (constant variable transmission).
Fuel Economy + Interior
If there’s any debate about why you should drive a new 2018 Honda Civic, the first practical reason (once you get past how cool you’ll look in one) is the remarkable fuel efficiency. With a fuel economy of 32 mpg in the city and 42 mpg on the highway, drivers can’t complain. The fantastic mileage drivers can expect is greater than what is offered with the Kia Forte and Hyundai Elantra.
The 2018 Honda Civic brings the optional 7.0-inch HondaLink touchscreen infotainment system and supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, if you’d rather opt for that versus using HondaLink. USB and Bluetooth phone and audio are standard for every trim. Drivers will love how responsive the HondaLink touchscreen is. Response times are faster with the HondaLink than the MyLink found in the Chevrolet Cruze or Entune used in the Toyota Corolla.
There’s a remarkable trim list that includes modern technology with each trim and increases in more features across the seven trims, which range from LX, EX, Sport, EX-L, Si, Touring and Sport Touring. The 2018 Honda Civic has features that range from keyless entry to adaptive cruise control.
The base trim Honda Civic LX has remote keyless entry and standard power windows and optional remote engine start.
The Civic EX extends the standard features to include 2 USB ports, remote engine start and keyless entry. Also included is 6-way driver seat adjustment.
Honda Civic Sport trim owners will enjoy the speed-sensing steering feature with a chrome tailpipe and single stainless steel exhaust. The Sport also has overdrive, 18-inch wheels with an option for 19-inch wheels.
Intercooled turbo and variable valve control help make this Civic trim standout, as well as the 450 watt amplifier with wireless phone connectivity, 10 speakers and voice activated radio.
The Si trim includes a spoiler, heated door mirrors and chrome tip exhaust with a sporty black grille standard and optional metallic paint and front and rear mud flaps.
The Civic Touring is generously stocked with fog lamps, adaptive cruise control, backup camera, leather wrapped steering wheel, dual zone air conditioning and navigation system. Also included is the wireless cell phone hookup with leather seats and bucket seats.
