For the 2012 model year, Honda announced higher fuel economy ratings, up to an 8 percent increase on highway figures for the Civic Sedan and Coupe models with automatic transmissions. The models will also be offered with new features as standard, including a 5-inch LCD "Intelligent" Multi-Information Display, Eco Assist, and the new Motion Adaptive Electronic Power Steering System. The starting price for the base Civic Coupe is $15,605.
