America's Favorite Compact Sedan, the Honda Civic, Now at Washington Honda, Serving Pittsburgh

Honda Civic

The Civic has been America's favorite compact sedan for over 30 years, thanks to a combination of high build quality, excellent handling and the reliability that comes with a Honda nameplate.


The compact sedan is powered by a standard 1.8 liter 4 cylinder engine that produces an ample 140hp with a choice of a five speed automatic or manual transmission. Though this amount of power may seem nominal, keep in mind that the Civic is a compact sedan where the usual horsepower doesn't rise above 120hp. Only a few other compact sedans in Washington, Pittsburgh are able to surpass the Civic in terms of power, such as the Mitsubishi Lancer.

The Civic also sports a hybrid version with an electric motor. This version is able to produce a total output of 110hp and is mated with a CVT. EPA is quite impressive for a hybrid. There's also a choice for the higher powered 2.4 liter engine that can produce an incredible 201horses. However, the latter is only available with a six speed manual transmission.


The Civic has always boasted a racy exterior design that surpassed many others in terms of aggression and style. However, the 2012 version garnered a lot of criticism by Honda fans due to the family friendly design and the tamed exterior styling. It seems that Honda is reverting back to the aggressive styling with the 2014 Civic, which features much sleeker and aerodynamic styling along with minor exterior changes. The new Honda Civic is also noted for its revised interior, which features one of the best build qualities in all of Washington, Pittsburgh.


Trim levels are dubbed the LX, EX and EX-L. But even the basic trim features an impressive set of features including parking camera, air conditioning, Bluetooth connectivity, ABS, Pandora radio interface and a whole slew of safety equipment. Upgrading to the top of the line EX-L features many other niceties, the most noteworthy of which is the leather stitched interior. The high fuel efficiency package features EPA boasting features such as low resistance tires and aerodynamic tweaks.
