New Honda Civic Coupe Packs A Six-Speed Manual And Starts At Under 20K


Pricing for the new two-door has been announced.

The Honda Civic is all new for its 10th generation and it appears as if the automaker hit a home run. It won North American Car of the Year and aside from some nasty engine issues (possible fires, recalls) it’s been smooth sailing. Currently the four-door model is the only new Civic on the market but that will change come March 15 when the Civic Coupe hits dealers. The new two-door will have a base price of $19,885 which includes an $835 destination fee. The top-tier Touring model comes in at $26,960.

The good news is that the cheapest trim, the LX, comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission; a six-speed CVT is available for $800 more. The bad news is that it’s the only trim to feature a manual option. The LX-P ($21,685), EX ($23,135), EX-L ($24,2600) and Touring ($26,960) all come with only a six-speed CVT. What’s even worse is that the manual option is only available on the 2.0-liter four-cylinder good for 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque. The 1.5-liter turbo-four kicks out 174 horses and 162 lb-ft of torque. While we would have liked the manual to be offered with the more fun and go-fast turbocharged engine we have confidence that Honda has something awesome up its sleeve for the next Civic Si.

But both the Si and Type R are sort of hanging out in limbo as the automaker rolls out its more conventional models, the sedan first followed by the coupe and finally the five-door hatchback we saw (in concept form) at Geneva. With the base Civic Sedan checking in at just a couple hundred dollars below the Coupe—it comes in at $19,475—we’re left wondering how much the hatchback will cost. It’d be sweet if Honda priced it just under $20,000 but after seeing it in Geneva we wouldn’t be surprised if the hot hatch sat at the top of the Civic pricing pyramid.
