The 2016 Honda Civic: fully redesigned for a perfect ride


Honda Civic

The Honda Civic has been a favorite of many for quite some time with top qualities like attractive looks, good fuel economy, and strong reliability. It’s not always easy to perfect perfection, but Honda has managed to do it for the current lineup year with the 2016 Civic. The Civic’s been reinvented for the new year, flashing daring new looks, turbocharged power, and an interior that boasts space and high-tech content. If you’re looking for a compact sedan, the 2016 Civic may just be for you.

New to 2016. There are lots of new improvements to be found in the 2016 Civic thanks to its full redesign. It gains alluringly edgy exterior styling, while the interior is more grown up than previous models with sleek touchscreen-based technology. Changes show up under the Civic’s hood, too, with a new turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine offered in upper models, while lower models get a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Both are powerful enough to increase driver engagement and also provide impressive fuel efficiency.

Safety ensured. With the large amount of bad drivers out there, it’s very important to have a car that provides you with the confidence that ensures you’re protected. The 2016 Civic is equipped with all of the standard and necessary safety gear like airbags all around, antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, and rearview camera. It also comes with standard and optional features that further increase its safety. One is Honda’s LaneWatch camera system that enables a blind-spot view of the right side of the car. Another is the Honda Sensing safety package that equips the Civic with adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning and intervention, and forward-collision alert with automatic emergency braking.

Above-average space. The Civic may hold a compact sedan label, but don’t let this cause you to question its proportions. The 2016 Civic is three inches longer and two inches wider than previous models; its wheelbase is longer too. This equals to more passenger space overall and more than enough room for those that are tall - a trait that’s not always easy to come by in compact sedans.

Cargo space has generously improved in the new Civic, too, featuring 15.1 cubic feet. This measurement is much more in scale with family sedans than compacts.

Step into the Civic EX-T. Whether you’re interested in a trim level that is base-level, midrange or upscale, the 2016 Civic delivers five to choose from. One of particular interest to many is the midrange EX-T. It offers turbocharged power, 17-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, rear spoiler, remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control and heated front seats. There is also a good combination of electronics with a seven-inch touchscreen interface with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SMS voice-to-text functionality, and smartphone-app integration; it also includes app-based navigation. For some tunes there is an eight-speaker audio system with dual USB ports, plus satellite and HD radio.
