About the Honda Civic Sedan

No other nameplate in the history of the Honda brand has existed longer than the Civic, one of the most popular compact sedans of the past century. With over 12 million units sold since its introduction in 1973, the Civic remains America’s top-selling model with first-time car buyers. The 11th-generation Honda Civic Sedan offers a striking exterior look that’s more recognizable and youthful than its predecessors. Making your commute more rewarding than ever before, its innovative interior is packed with advanced tech features like standard Apple CarPlay® & Android Auto™ smartphone connectivity. Whether you’re in search of athletic power, impressive efficiency, or a blend of both — the Civic Sedan is available with two distinct engine choices to match the needs of any type of driver. Regardless of your destination, it’s always a comforting feeling to know that your car is looking out for the safety of both you and your passengers. This is the exact reason that Honda has equipped every Civic Sedan with Honda Sensing®, a complete suite of groundbreaking driver-assistive safety features to help you stay one step ahead of danger.

What the Critics Say

All the best Civic hallmarks are still there. It remains value-oriented, fuel-efficient, and high-quality. Safety and technology features have advanced toward segment-leading, too. The Civic’s styling and road manners are better than ever. The car looks more mature than the overwrought last generation, while its interior strikes an exemplary balance between form and function.” — MotorTrend

The Civic’s combination of value, efficiency, niceties, and refined road manners make it a no-brainer, even when compared to other similarly well-respected rivals such as the Hyundai Elantra, the Mazda 3, and the Toyota Corolla. Simply put, it’s a great car at a great price.” — Car and Driver

What’s New For 2023

Shopping for a 2023 Honda Civic Sedan? Buyers will have a more streamlined lineup to choose from this year. Last year’s entry-level LX trim has been discontinued for 2023. This leaves the Sport, EX, and Touring as the three trim level choices for the Honda Civic Sedan. With each offering its own unique blend of impressive equipment, you’ll have no trouble finding a perfect match for your needs. Otherwise, the Civic Sedan is back with no major changes from last year.

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.
