The Civic is officially cool again!
Ever since the Honda Civic concept was unveiled in New York, we’ve been hoping its sporty, aggressive styling would make it to the production model. Well, we can confirm that aside from the silly little mirrors, blacked-out grille and massive rear wing, the new Civic Coupe looks almost identical to the concept. Ricers will be more than happy to add these themselves. The back end is particularly attractive and we’re seriously digging the aggressive fastback profile. The Civic Concept’s stylish front end has also carried over to the 2016 model.
Inside, there’s more rear legroom, more room overall, high-quality fabric and upholstery throughout, with soft-touch details and an optional TFT main gauge and seven-inch touchscreen display. Like the new sedan, the Civic Coupe comes with two powertrains: a 2.0-liter four-pot (158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque), and a 1.5-liter turbo-four (174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque). Both come with CVTs with a manual, which is an option only with the naturally-aspirated 2.0-liter. From the LX all the way to the range-topping Touring model, all new Civic Coupes benefit from an impressive list of standard equipment including LED DRLs, acoustic glass windshield, and auto on/off headlights.
