Fall in love with the 2018 Honda Civic all over again as you review the new features, upgrades and options on this year’s model, and drive one today.
2018 Honda Civic Trims
This year the Honda Civic carries over largely the same from its 2017 iteration, though the availability of a number of features have been shifted around to create a better balanced overall package. It offers the kind of technology features that leave other compact car manufacturers in the dust. It comes in six trim levels, the LX, the EX, the EX-T, the EXL, the Touring and the Si. It’s available as a sedan, hatchback, or coupe.
The new Civic is driven by a base 2.0L inline-4 engine which delivers 158 horsepower and is backed up by 138 lb-ft of torque. This is upgradeable to a turbocharged 1.5L engine that is capable of cranking out 174 horsepower and is rated for 167 lb-ft of torque. The highest level engine delivers 180 horses, with 177 lb-ft in power.
The base level of Honda Civic comes with a surprising amount of equipment for the cost. You get the base 2.0L engine with six-speed manual transmission or CVT, LED daytime running lights, split-fold back seats, height-adjust driver seat, automatic climate control, and a stereo system featuring 5-inch center display, Bluetooth®, USB ports, and four speakers. You also get a standard rearview camera.
Optionally, you can add the Honda Sensing® safety suite. This gives you features like lane keeping functions (warning and intervention), crash warnings, Adaptive Cruise Control and emergency braking.
Stepping it up a notch gives you a host of additional features like the Honda LaneWatch™ blind-spot monitoring system, rearview dynamic guidelines, satellite radio, remote start, keyless entry, 7-inch touchscreen, and smartphone app integration including GPS navigation. The additional features just go up from there.
Driving in the Honda Civic
For most people who choose small sedans, the driving experience is paramount, and the Civic continues to deliver this year. It’s quite peppy and has a lot of pickup when you step on the gas, the braking is sure and confident, and the steering athletic and agile. It does a great job controlling body roll, and has a great turn radius.
The cabin is nice and quiet, and the suspension keeps the ride stable and steady even in uneven road conditions. It’s not just a solid driving experience, it’s actually a vehicle that’s a lot of fun and playful to drive.
