The 2015 Honda Civic is already showing up on the streets of Detroit, and if you’re looking for one of the most fuel-efficient, best-equipped compact cars, you can drive the new Civic home from a Detroit Area Honda Dealer. But if you’re new to the Civic, you might be wondering just what it is about the car that has made it one of the most attractive vehicles in its class for years.
So we thought you could use an overview of what to expect from the model.
A Fuel Efficient Engine
Under the hood of the 2015 Honda Civic is a 1.8L four-cylinder engine capable of 143 hp and 129 lb-ft of torque, and with numbers like those, you might expect it to guzzle gas. But that’s not the case. Honda’s engine is not only powerful but also fuel efficient; the 2015 Civic LX with CVT earns an EPA-estimated 39 highway mpg.*
Some of the Best Standard Features
The idea of “standard features” varies from automaker to automaker, but Honda has been pushing the envelope and dragging other manufacturers along for the ride as they help to redefine the standard. The entry-level LX trim of the Civic is one of the best-equipped compact cars on the road today, and competing models are still having a tough time keeping up.
Here’s a quick look at what you can find on the entry-level Civic:
- Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio
- Honda’s i-MID infotainment system with touchscreen
- Steering wheel-mounted controls for phone, audio, and cruise
- Built-in rearview camera
- SMS text messaging capabilities
- Pandora internet radio
