Car and Driver

Car and Driver focuses on the performance of the 2016 Honda Civic by saying:

“The Civic, offered as a sedan or a coupe, exemplifies automotive excellence and underscores Honda’s commitment to blending fun with efficiency and practicality. Precise steering, a solid chassis, and a well-tuned suspension provide a compliant ride as well as sweet handling.”

The Civic also gives you solid power, providing two engines: a 2.0 In-Line 4-Cylinder Aluminum Alloy engine with a 16-valve DOHC i-VTEC valve train that generates 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque, and a 1.5L 4-Cylinder Aluminum Alloy engine with Single Scroll MHI TD03 Turbo and Internal Wastegate that produces 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque.


Edmunds celebrates, among many other things, the Civic’s technologies, explaining that:

“You might think of the 2016 Honda Civic as a small, relatively inexpensive car for buyers on a budget, but this little Honda is so much more than that. This new Civic has daring looks, turbocharged power and a spacious, technology-rich interior for you and your friends or even a few kids.”

The Civic gives you a choice of two powerful audio systems and features a 7-inch display touch screen as well as Bluetooth streaming audio and AppleCarPlay and Android Auto for smartphone connectivity.

Kelley Blue Book

Finally, Kelley Blue Book focuses special attention on its style and efficiency, remarking that:

“The Honda Civic sedan has beautiful new exterior styling, two new engines that are both more powerful and more fuel-efficient, and is sportier than ever without sacrificing ride comfort. The Civic is known for its reliability, resale value and safety, yet injects entertaining driving dynamics into the equation.”

The Civic gives drivers 30 mpg in the city and 41 on the highway when outfitted with Continuously Variable Transmission (M-CVT), and 31 mpg in the city and 41 on the highway when equipped with Continuously Variable Transmission (LL-CVT).*
