Denver, Centennial, and Aurora area Civic shoppers trying to track down the Civic that will best complement their needs have come to the right place. Check out Mile High Honda’s 2016 Civic trim comparison for everything you need to know about the Civic’s prestigious lineup on one page. Let’s get started by reviewing what’s included on the Civic’s starting trim.

2016 Civic LX

The base 2016 Civic is equipped with a 2.0-liter 158-horsepower four-cylinderhonda civic engine that produces plenty of power for highway passing and Denver drives. Buyers have their choice between the six-speed manual transmission or the continuously variable transmission (CVT).

Standard on all models comes the Civic’s Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines, aka a street parker’s best friend. This smart camera system shows you three views from your Civic’s bumper—normal, top-down, and wide—that make parallel parking a cinch.

Even at the entry level, the Civic comes with high-value media features such as a 5-inch color LCD, Bluetooth®, and HandsFreeLink®. These features allow you to safely make calls on the go and stream your favorite audio via Pandora® through your phone or your device’s song library.

2016 Civic EX

The next trim level up is the 2016 Civic EX. It builds on the LX’s offerings with a desirable high-tech feature package for superb connectivity. The Civic EX’s 7-inch electrostatic touchscreen runs HondaLink®, Honda’s all-inclusive media program that works with Apple CarPlay™, Google Android Auto™, and the Aha® app to streamline smartphone capability while also gaining drivers access to useful travel information such as weather and local points of interest.

The EX adds in notably more buttons, a button on your key fob for remote engine start, a push start button at the ignition, and a standard moonroof that opens up to the night stars or a sunny day with a single touch.

2016 Civic EX-T

The third Civic in the lineup is the 2016 EX-T, which is easy to remember since the T stands for turbo! The EX-T’s turbocharged engine is a 1.5-liter four-cylinder model. Aside from the new motor under-hood, the Civic EX-T gains a few additional convenience and media features. Civic EX-T drivers can enjoy:

  • Dual-zone climate control
  • Heated front seats
  • Fog lights
  • SiriusXM® Radio and HD Radio

2016 Civic EX-L

Those interested in the upscale look and feel of a leather interior will instantly fall in love with the 2016 Civic EX-L. It trades previous trims’ cloth surfaces for leather trim on the seats, at the wheel, and on the shift knob. Drivers are also able to fine-tune their seating position in the EX-L’s hot seat with standard eight-way power adjust.

2016 Civic Touring

The 2016 Civic Touring trim is loaded with Honda’s most elite technology. With the addition of features that automatically engage standard LED headlights and rain-sensing windshield wipers, Touring drivers can seamlessly handle changing conditions while maximizing their focus on the road ahead.
