2016 Honda Civic Review
With the all-new 2016 Honda Civic comes big changes to the previous Civic structure and personality. Between an aggressive outer shell, improvements under the hood, and exceptional technology at driver’s fingertips, Denver, Aurora, and Centennial area sedan seekers are in for a treat. Keep reading to get all of the details and specs about the forthcoming 2016 Honda Civic.
The Civic Reconsidered
The 2015 Civic had a distinctive shape and some subtly sporty hints, but it reads more classic than cutting-edge. To contend with others in the small sedan pack, Honda’s given the new Civic trailblazing good looks.
By far the biggest structural change is Honda’s decision to do away with the model’s cab-centric design that positioned the windshield directly over the front wheels. This switch sets the windshield back farther than it’s been in recent years and gives the model a whole new sense of edge.
The 2016 Civic concept first appeared at the New York International Auto Show wearing an electrifying lime green exterior. Bearing Honda’s flying H grille, an assertive front and rear bumper, and a large wing-like rear spoiler, the new Civic can be summed up as sculptural and athletic.
The base 2016 Civic will be powered by a 158-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that achieves 15 more horses than its predecessor does. Enthusiasts will be happy to hear the upgrade of the five-speed manual transmission offering to a six-speed for 2016. Automatic drivers can opt for the continuously variable transmission (CVT).
The 2016 Civic is available in LX, EX, EX-T, EX-L, and Touring trims. The upper levels will operate from a turbocharged 1.5-liter 174-horsepower engine model.
The base Civic LX with the CVT gearbox is expected to return impressive efficiency marks, making this Civic version a seriously qualified commuter companion.
Type-R Civic Hatchback
There’s yet another surprise that Honda has in store for the Civic’s first double-digit generation debut. Sales of the performance-savvy Type-R Civic will finally take place in the US.
While not many details are known about the 2016 Type-R, here’s what the 2015 version offered up: over 300 horsepower, a six-speed manual transmission, top speed of 168 mph, and Brembo performance brakes all packed into an aerodynamic, fearless shell. The next R will without a doubt be armed and ready to give the Ford Focus RS and the Volkswagen GTI a run for their money.
Inner Civic Upgrades
A wheelbase stretch of 3 inches makes this Civic version extra roomy. The interior as a whole has gotten a makeover that matches the caliber of its exterior overhaul. Premium quality materials abound, and the Civic’s previous multi-level dash is replaced with a sleek and intuitive setup.
Media-wise, the base Civic LX comes with a 5-inch display, a four-speaker audio system, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, USB connection, and Pandora connectivity. Trim levels above entry receive a 7-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality.
Another structural upgrade benefit is nearly 3 cubic feet added onto the previous Civic’s trunk capacity for a total measurement of 15.1 cubic feet.
