The 2017 Honda Civic Sedan

The tried-and-true Honda Civic is just as outstanding in 2017 as ever, giving Michigan drivers everything from power and efficiency to technology all in a stylish, comfortable, sophisticated package. Under the hood is a 2.0L engine that produces up to 158 hp, or a choice of a turbocharged 1.5L engine which brings the hp up to 174. A 6-speed manual transmission or a CVT is available based on driving preference. With the manual transmission, drivers of the Honda Civic Sedan LX will get an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 28 city / 40 highway / 32 combined mpg.* In the LX CVT, that impressive fuel economy improves even more to 31 city / 40 highway / 34 combined mpg.*

The Civic comes in five different trim levels, each offering drivers a different level of comfort, luxury, and technology. But even the entry-level trim is one of the most well-equipped vehicles on the road and is a tremendous starting point for the other trim levels to build upon. Some of what you can expect to find on the standard equipment list includes:

  • Automatic Climate Control System
  • Cruise Control
  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and Streaming Audio

You won’t have to sacrifice fuel economy, with the Honda Accord LX 6MT earning an estimated 23 city / 32 highway / 26 combined mpg.* Paired with a CVT transmission, the fuel economy of the Accord LX jumps to an EPA-estimated 27 city / 36 highway / 30 combined mpg.*
