The days of the stripped-down base model are long gone, with the Civic Sedan LX pushing drivers and automakers to rethink what should be included on an entry-level vehicle.
Powertrain: Under the hood of the Civic is a more powerful engine than you’ll find on most small cars, rated at 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque, yet it’s efficient as well. The 2.0L 4-cylinder manages an EPA-estimated 40 mpg on the highway and 31 mpg in the city on CVT models.**
Technology: Honda makes it easy to stay connected behind the wheel of a Civic thanks to standard Bluetooth phone and audio, a 5-inch LCD display screen, and a USB audio input. In the Civic, you can back up knowing your path is clear thanks to a standard multi-angle rearview camera, complete with guidelines.
Honda Sensing: The rearview camera is just the start of the Civic’s safety features, with the new Honda Sensing package available on every trim. Among these advanced driver-assist features are safety technologies like Collision Mitigation Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, and Road Departure Mitigation.
