The 2016 Honda Civic: little, but fierce

The Honda Civic is loved for its upbeat personality, charming good looks and excellent reliability. Now, it offers even more with its full redesign for 2016. If you’re in the market for a compact sedan, here are some reasons why the 2016 Honda Civic is a top choice.

Alluring, Upscale Interior: ôThough she be but little, she is fierce. This quote efficiently sums up the compact Honda Civic, due to its impressive passenger and storage space. The 2016 Civic now stands three inches longer and two inches wider - its wheelbase is slightly longer, too. These measurements may sound miniscule, but the Civic makes the most of these inches - and it does so extremely well. Inside the Honda, there is excellent space, even enough to provide comfort to passengers of six feet - whether running a quick errand or venturing on a long trip.

Storage space has been improved in the 2016 Civic, too. Trunk space has jumped from 12.5 cubic feet to an above-average 15.1 cubes - a measurement that more resembles a midsize sedan than a compact.

There is also a good amount of storage spots inside the Honda, including a huge storage bin located under the center console. Whether you need to store a large water bottle or a couple if iPads, they’ll easily fit in this spot.

New and Improved Power: Power has been improved in the 2016 Honda with one of two engine choices. LX and EX trims house a 2.0-liter four-cylinder paired to a six-speed manual transmission or continuously variable transmission (CVT). The EX-T, EX-L and Touring trims all feature a CVT, but are much peppier in performance due to a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Overall, the 2016 Honda’s powertrain is one of the best you can find in the compact sedan segment, providing stellar fuel economy and the performance of a sports car. The turbocharged engine is definitely the more appealing choice, however, due to its impressive ability to combine fun and engagement behind the wheel.

Steering in the Honda is responsive, even lively, and there’s much less body roll than found in previous model years. Interior noise level is also down, which makes the Honda comfortable and enjoyable for all occupants.

Up-to-date Technology: The Civic features user-friendly technology that’s responsive and strategically laid out, such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which provide full smartphone functionality via a seven-inch touchscreen. There are also other items available depending on trim level, such as: 10-speaker audio system, navigation system with voice controls, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning and forward-collision alert with automatic emergency braking.
