Over the course of 10 distinct generations, the Honda Civic has established itself as one of the most stylish and highest performing sedans on the market. And as Washington, Pittsburgh, and McMurray drivers anticipate the arrival of the 2018 Honda Civic, they should expect this trend to continue.
Our team at Washington Honda has your first look at the 2018 Honda Civic. Read on to discover just what you should expect.1
If you’ve been chomping at the bit waiting for news of the 2018 Honda Civic, we can understand why. With its efficient engine and sleek design, the Civic never fails to satisfy drivers.
With plans for the 2018 Honda Civic all drawn up and ready for production, we expect it shouldn’t be long now before it’s here. As a matter of fact, you may just see the 2018 Civic hit showrooms as early as fall 2017.
There are still plenty of 2017 Honda models available.
One of the best things about the Honda Civic has always been the variation between its many models. Drivers could choose the standard sedan, coupe, or even a sporty hatchback. However, the 2018 Honda Civic looks like it’ll also add the Si and Type-R variants.
Both the Si and the Type-R are new sport trims. While these may add a few exterior add-ons such as a spoiler option, most of the changes will be found on the interior. Sport seating will be added, for instance, along with all new accents.
Si and Type-R powertrains should be a little different, too. The Si will come with a 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder capable of producing 205 horsepower (hp) and 192 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, the Type-R will come with a 2.0L turbocharged engine capable of producing 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque.
Outside of some big changes to its lineup, the 2018 Honda Civic should carry over most of the specs and features from the 2017 model. Its safety array, for example, having nabbed the Civic a couple different commendations, should remain untouched.
The Honda Civic powertrain is expected to be maintained in the 2018 model, too. The 2.0L inline 4-cylinder found in the 2017 model should carry over, bringing with it 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque, as well as plenty of fuel efficiency.
If anything, Honda simply aims to push the limits on size with each new design. When the 10th generation of the Civic was released, it was the most spacious model to date. Honda may be looking to add even more space in the 2018 model.
Now that you’ve got the inside scoop on the 2018 Honda Civic, you can be one of the first to test drive it here in the Washington, Pittsburgh, and McMurray area. Just contact us here at Washington Honda, and we’ll make sure you know as soon as these excellent cars hit our showroom.
