The 2014 Honda Civic Gets a Boost in Appeal

Major improvements were given to the 2014 Honda Civic, which boosts its appeal for anyone in the market for a five-passenger sedan. From an upgraded interior to more powerful engines and new upscale features, the Civic is one sedan that stands as a top compact car on the market. It comes in several attention-worthy trims - check ‘em out below.

LX: When choosing the entry-level LX, you’ll find all of the basic equipment, from full power accessories, cruise control, and tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel that ensures accurate positioning for good comfort. Electronics on the base LX are what really make this trim stand out due to many upscale features. It comes with a five-inch central display screen, rearview camera, bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, and SMS text-messaging functionality. For some tunes, the LX has a four-speaker sound system with CD player, auxiliary audio jack, iPOD/USB audio interface, and Pandora radio functionality.

EX: Stepping up to the mid-range EX means many upgrades for both equipment and tech features. Wheels are increased from the 15 inches found on the LX to a larger 16 inches, headlights are automatic, and entry and ignition are keyless. The central touchscreen display jumps to seven inches and is linked to Honda’s smartphone integration system with Aha radio and Apple-based Siri Eyes voice-command functionality.

EX-L: For upscale comfort, the EX-L is an excellent choice. It boasts foglights, automatic headlights, heated mirrors, leather upholstery, and heated front seats. The driver seat also has eight-way power adjustability. Opt for the EX-L with Navi and you’ll get the added bonus of a navigation system and HD and satellite radio.

Si: Honda’s Civic Si trim offers a sportier vibe, which is perfect for anyone who is enthusiastic about driving. It’s equipped with 18-inch alloy wheels, foglights, unique front and rear styling tweaks, and rear spoiler. The engine is larger for more power and suspension is sport-tuned for a zippy performance.

Extra Models of the Civic Boast Fuel Saving Technology

Honda didn’t stop at the aforementioned trims. Instead, it went on to create three other models that are worthy of attention: the HF, Hybrid, and Natural Gas. Each includes its own characteristics that help save on fuel and make less of a carbon footprint. Here’s a peek at each.

The Civic HF is equipped with content similar to the LX, but with some upgrades that are designed to deliver maximum mpg. It has low-rolling-resistance tires, aerodynamic cast-aluminum wheels, wind-cheating underbody panels, plus rear spoiler.

The Civic Hybrid is broken up into four trims that mirror the Civic’s main trim levels, plus adds safety features, like forward-collision and lane-departure warning systems. But what separates the Hybrid from the pack is its power base. Under the hood of this Civic is a 1.5-liter gasoline four-cylinder engine, electric motor, and lithium-ion battery pack paired to a continuously variable transmission.

The Civic’s Natural Gas model also provides most all of the Civic’s main trim level’s equipment and features, but runs on a natural-gas powered 1.8-liter engine.
