If you’re in the market for a compact car, you’ll want to consider the Honda Civic. This car has earned a strong reputation for incredible reliability, and it offers tons of customizable options to make it your own, including several trims and available features. This 2018 Civic sedan review from the team at Baierl Automotive will help you decide whether the Civic sedan is the right choice for your drives around Pittsburgh, Wexford, and Butler. Let’s take a look at what’s under the hood and inside cabin of this sedan with our car review.
Power & Performance
The Civic is available with one of two different engine options, so you can choose the power you’d like. The base engine is a 2.0L 4-cylinder that generates 158 horsepower. For more power, opt up to the 1.5L turbocharged engine, which produces 174 horsepower.
A 6-speed manual transmission is standard, or you can opt for a continuously variable transmission, which performs like an automatic. With the standard engine and manual transmission, the Civic earns an EPA-estimated fuel efficiency rating of 28 city/40 highway MPG.1 Acceleration with either engine is quick and vigorous, offering great handling and precise steering feedback.
An Upscale Interior
The 2018 Civic seats five occupants on standard cloth upholstery, although options include luxuries such as leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, and heated front and rear seats. Standard features in the cabin include a 4-speaker stereo system, the Automatic Climate Control System to keep all passengers comfortable, a USB port for charging devices, and Bluetooth® connectivity for wireless access to music and entertainment, as well as the ability to make hands-free phone calls.
A standard multi-angle rearview camera makes it safe and simple to reverse in a crowded parking lot or park in a tight parallel space. The trunk of the Civic sedan offers 15.1 cubic feet of cargo capacity, which is large for the compact class.
Improved entertainment options include adding a 7-inch touchscreen, the Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control System, Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, satellite radio, navigation, and more.
The Civic boasts high safety scores from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, especially when equipped with Honda Sensing®, an available suite of driver-assisting safety technologies. Features of the system include:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™
