The 2015 Honda Civic: a solid companion


Honda Civic

Shopping for a compact sedan means a big list of potential choices. One that should hold a spot at the top of your possibility list is Honda’s 2015 Civic. With it comes high fuel economy, a comfortable and composed ride, and spacious interior. Safety scores are also great. For a car that will make a nice companion no matter where life takes you, stick with the Honda Civic.

Driving can be dangerous, which is why Honda equips the Civic with capable safety gear and features. Included on all models of the 2015 Civic is stability control, antilock brakes, front side airbags, side curtain airbags and rearview camera. Depending on trim level, the Civic may also include a right-side blind-spot camera with emergency crash notification.

While safety equipment is solid on the Civic, safety scores are also impressive. In government crash tests, the Civic sedan received the top five-star rating in overall protection; it got five stars in total side safety and four stars in total frontal-impact safety. While the Civic Coupe crash scores aren’t as high as the sedan, they are still very good. The coupe body style was given four stars in overall protection and total frontal-impact safety, and made five stars in total side-impact safety. Both the Civic sedan and coupe received the highest scores possible in several categories when tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Categories include: small-overlap frontal-offset, moderate-overlap frontal-offset, side-impact and roof-strength tests. Both body styles also received the top score in whiplash protection in rear impacts.

The interior of the 2015 Civic features a stylish two-tier dash display with five-inch monitor that displays information for audio, hands-free phone use and various vehicle systems. Found in upper civic trims, you’ll find the HondaLink system, which pairs to a seven-inch touchscreen that provides voice control, audio, navigation and social media functions. Controls and menus are user-friendly and offer quick responses. For anyone who wants a compact car, but still wants adequate passenger space, the Civic is a top choice. Head- and legroom in the front seat boasts competitive measurements; rear space is excellent, too, especially for legroom.

There are several Civic trim levels available on the 2015 lineup, from the base LX to the top EX-L, and the sporty Civic Si to the fuel-efficient HF. One trim of particular interest for many is the Civic Si. The Si is by far the most intriguing behind the wheel. It features sporty content, such as 18-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, unique front and rear styling tweaks, rear spoiler, bigger engine, limited-slip front differential and sport-tuned suspension. The interior is the most enhanced on the lineup, as well, with front sport seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, aluminum shift knob, simulated carbon-fiber accents and red backlit gauges.
