Honda Civic Technology
Today’s vehicles are outfitted with near-endless tech feature combinations across their various trim levels and packages. Sorting through all of these choices in an attempt to pick the feature mix that’s right for you can quickly lead to an option-induced headache.
Civic seekers in Denver, Centennial, and Aurora can save time and stress by consulting our guide to the 2015 Honda Civic’s technology features sorted by trim level below.
Base Civic LX Technology
The Honda Civic LX’s technology features provide drivers with access to the essential media and comfort capabilities that act as the basis for an enjoyable ride.
Comfort and Convenience: Fine-tune your positioning in the driver’s seat with the Civic’s standard tilt and telescopic steering wheel. The wheel also features illuminated controls for convenient adjustments of the audio, phone, cruise, and intelligent Multi-Information Display (i-MID) systems.
The i-MID is a 5-inch LCD screen that the driver can use to scroll through vital vehicle information such as trip specs, Bluetooth calling actions, and fuel economy. Customize the display to create a unique report that shows the points that most interest you.
Audio Entertainment: The Civic LX includes a USB audio interface to plug in your smartphone and standard Pandora radio compatibility for instant access to your favorite custom stations.
Speed-sensitive volume control ensures that the in-cabin sound level stays the same whether you’re highway cruising or paused at a traffic light.
Safety Tech: The base Honda Civic also comes with a rearview camera with guidelines to help you find the path of least resistance from your parking spot to the open road.
The SMS text messaging function connects to your phone and converts texts received during your drive to be read aloud. At a stop, reply with a prepped phrase from the system or dial and call the sender back through Bluetooth.
Additional LX tech features include:
- Air conditioning with air filtration system
- Four-speaker stereo system with AM/FM/CD function
- Bluetooth phone connection and audio streaming
Civic SE and EX Tech Features
The next Civic trim up, the SE, builds on the desirable tech features that come standard on the LX. This level introduces advanced systems for premium device integration, luxury-level listening, and enhanced cabin comfort.
Media: The Honda Civic SE’s HondaLink technology opens the floodgates to in-vehicle app and internet access. Get audible updates from your social media accounts, listen along to audible books during your drive, and even get filled in on the latest news stories.
The SE also brings in an additional USB audio interface (for a total of two stations) that allows you to charge your devices while they play over the six-speaker audio system. A 7-inch audio display shows artist, song, and playlist information in bold graphics.
Safety: Honda LaneWatch monitors traffic in the right lane and displays its feed on the i-MID when you activate the right turn signal. This provides you with a better view of your surroundings and more confidence in each lane switch.
Comfort: Automatic climate control replaces the LX’s air conditioning for temp management that doesn’t require constant tweaking.
The Civic EX comes standard with all of the SE’s features in addition to the convenience of push button start.
EX-L Trim Technology
The uppermost Honda Civic trim is the EX-L. It comes equipped with supreme technology to help you reach your destination promptly while staying entertained along the way.
Navigation: The EX-L’s available Satellite-Linked Navigation System with voice recognition and HD Digital traffic is the perfect commuter companion that provides turn-by-turn directions and route changes and updates through its high-res touchscreen.
Media: The EX-L also comes with HD Radio and SiriusXM Radio for even more media enjoyment.
