Performance

Keeping shoppers happy, 2017 and 2018 Civics come with a choice of powertrains to suit the daily commuter and the driving enthusiast. The EX has a fuel-saving powertrain that makes it popular with many commuters. Budget-minded shoppers appreciate the EX-T’s 174-horsepower turbo. It is also a fuel saver, but it gives you more fun behind the wheel. 2018 Civics have an updated power steering rack. Drivers should notice improved cornering and overall control. The goal is to eliminate understeer at slow speeds and oversteer at highway speeds. You can get the standard manual transmission or enjoy the convenience of Honda’s smart automatic. If you choose the Civic Si, you’ll command a 205-horsepower turbo. At the top of the heap, there’s the Civic Type R. This 306-horsepower car won the 2018 Motor Authority Best Car to Buy.

Appearance

The 2017 introduction of a Civic hatchback added even more variety to a family that includes sedans and coupes. This variety continues with the 2018 editions. Civic four-door models are noted for their generous spaciousness. The new Civic hatchbacks are singled out for greater utility. Sedans have trunks rated at 15 cubic feet while hatchbacks can claim 25 cubic feet in the cargo hold. Regardless of your choice, owners enjoy a high quality cabin with the latest amenities. EX editions represent a budget-minded package while the LX adds more amenities for greater value. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are part of the 2018 Honda Civic menu, bringing its technology up to date. Like 2017 models, the 2018 EX editions have a five-inch touchscreen with streaming audio choices. The LX adds the larger touchscreen with more apps. Android Auto lets the driver utilize many of their smartphone features including Google Maps and Google Voice. Apple CarPlay assists the iPhone user with Siri Eyes Free and Apple maps.

Safety

Just as the 2017 did, the 2018 Honda Civic has earned the coveted five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In 2017 and again in 2018, Honda seeks to make collision avoidance features as affordable as possible. The Honda Sensing package is available on every edition. The most important system may be the forward collision warning and its autobrake capability. The driver gets a chance to respond, but the system will slow the car if an emergency situation is detected. A lane departure warning is paired with a lane assist, and a road departure warning is paired with a similar steering assist. These systems work to keep the car in its lane and out of harm’s way. Adaptive cruise control regulates speed and brakes as needed for safe travel.
