For the last 4 decades, the Honda Civic has been the perennial leader in its class and one of the most popular compact cars ever. With a reputation for affordability and then reliability, one couldn’t go wrong. The 2016 Civic appears to have set out to bring in the buyer who is not only looking for those qualities of affordability and dependability but also the one looking for excitement and style. The 2016 Honda Civic sedan combines beauty and brains, steadfast composure with a dash of muscle.
The 2016 changes seem to signify that Honda's innovative spirit has been revived. The styling presents hints of the Accord and Acura, but overall it is unique unto itself. The redesigned exterior is impressive with its dramatic roofline, chrome front and somewhat bold statement.
Going inside, you’ll find impressive touches like sporty leather seats more suited to a Lexus; heated rear seats and ample legroom complement the luxury. The restyled dash appears with a 7-inch color Driver Information Interface display compete with digital speedometer, analog tachometer, HondaLink smartphone integration, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SMS voice-to-text functionality and smartphone-app integration, including app-based navigation tools and other selectable information
The HondaLink system has been updated with improved response time and a brighter, more colorful interface. And of particular note for some who’ve owned the Civic in the past, interior noise has been significantly tamped down. Driving around in the Coupe, like the Sedan, is now a more serene experience with very low levels of noise intruding into the cabin. Part of this is due to improved sound insulation and sealing, and part is due to a well-tuned chassis and suspension setup. Honda has used more high-strength steel in critical areas, which has a positive effect on body stiffness.
The new Civic has been praised for its peppy yet fuel-efficient engine. The nimble engine is particularly impressive in terms of its stingy fuel consumption. Some drivers have recorded near-hybrid fuel efficiency of 35.3 miles per gallon.
The ride and handling of the Civic is enjoyable at all speeds, highly maneuverable and smooth steering response, whether in the city, on the highway or winding back roads. With its compact size and deft quickness, drivers who like to weave through morning traffic reported feeling a sense of mastery over the creepers. The MacPherson strut front suspension and multilink rear deliver stable cornering and excellent road comportment. 16-inch alloy wheels are standard on the LX models, while 17-inch wheels come on the EX and Touring -- no more 15-in steel hoops for the Civic.
The 2016 Honda Civic comes standard with stability control, antilock disc brakes (many previous Civics came with rear drums), front side airbags, side curtain airbags and a rearview camera. Starting with the EX sedan trim, a right-side blind spot camera (LaneWatch) is also standard, as is the HondaLink system, which also includes emergency crash notification. On the Civic coupe, the blind-spot camera and HondaLink come standard on the Touring trim only.
When coupled with the more-than-satisfactory engine performance, the stellar fuel economy creates a more-than-compelling reason to get behind the wheel of the new Civic.
