Honda Civic Sedan Features

Honda Civic Sedan Exterior

Sharp Styling & Performance

Viewed from any angle, the Honda Civic Sedan reflects an athletic appearance inspired by the original Honda design ethos of “Man-Maximum, Machine-Minimum” (or “M/M”). This principle has evolved into a more upscale look than the previous generation, giving the Civic Sedan a lower beltline and more steeply raked windshield pillars for improved outward visibility. Further enhancing its handling capabilities, the Civic Sedan benefits from a widened rear track and distinct rear shoulder line for a more refined feel during cornering.

Standard power for the Civic Sedan comes in the form of a 2.0-liter DOHC i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine producing 158 horsepower 138 lb-ft of torque paired to a responsive continuously variable transmission (CVT). Drivers can also upgrade to an available 180-horsepower 1.5-liter turbocharged and intercooled DOHC VTEC® 4-cylinder engine for maximum thrills. Available drive models including Eco, Normal, and Sport give you the option to further customize your experience behind the wheel of the Civic Sedan.

Honda Civic Sedan Interior

Driver-Focused Interior

Achieving harmony between comfortable and connected, the driver-oriented cabin of the Honda Civic Sedan is the perfect way to make the most of your daily drive. Civic Sedan LX models come standard with a 7-inch color touchscreen, the largest ever found inside of a Civic. Benefitting from the principles of Honda Body Stabilizing technology, the Civic also comes standard with specialized seats to maximize comfort on long-distance drives. By paying meticulous attention to detail, the layout of the cabin follows a minimalist theme that creates a sense of spaciousness. You’ll have the freedom to listen to your favorite songs via Bluetooth® or USB media, radio, or on a connected smartphone for use with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. The optional Bose audio system featuring Bose Centerpoint 2 and Bose SurroundStage digital signal processing is another Civic-first feature available inside the cabin, allowing you to hear your music with unparalleled depth and quality.

Honda Civic Sedan Safety

Groundbreaking Safety

Setting the new standard for safety in the compact sedan segment, the Honda Civic Sedan comes equipped with a remarkable collection of advanced safety features designed to keep you out of harm’s way. Making their debut for the first time in a passenger car, innovative frontal airbags found inside the Civic feature specialized functions to control head motions in certain types of collisions. Also standard on the Civic Sedan is the award-winning Honda Sensing® suite of safety features. Standard technologies found in this collection include Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), and several more. Every Civic Sedan is also engineered with the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, further improved for superior stiffness and protection in the event of a severe accident.
