Honda has picked up the pace with the introduction of the 10th generation and all-new 2016 Civic. The design is bold and striking and the compact sedan welcomes a flight of new features and first-time equipment. A look at Canada’s favorite sedan.
One of the biggest changes on the new Civic is obviously the design; the sedan never looked so good. After criticism of producing a reliable sedan that somewhat lacked in personality, Honda went all in and produced a sedan that is now everything but flavorless. According to its maker, this Civic is in fact new from head to toe. The new front grille is topped with a frowning chrome strip and dynamic new eagle-like headlights. The protruding ridges that define each side of the hood create very strong character lines, completed with an aggressive front lip with sharp lines. At the back, arrowhead shaped taillights and accents to the bumper are a toned down continuation of the design at the front that balances the overall, overwhelmingly aggressive-looking new sedan.
Under the metal sheeting, the new Civic also received a new multi-link independent suspension and a larger stabilizer bar. It is also equipped for the first time of the Agile Handling Assist brake torque vectoring that improves the precision and the handling in the corners. The Civic has also gained 91L in passenger volume, resulting in the most spacious sedan in the compact sedan class.
Another important highlight for 2016, the Honda Civic is now available with a turbo engine. It will offer a new entry-level 2.0L i-VTEC engine that produces 158hp, a 15hp improvement on the former generation’s 1.8L. And for the first time, the Civic is also offered with a 1.5L turbo engine rated at 174hp.
In 2016, a car wouldn’t be complete without a host of safety and entertainment technologies and the Civic is no exception. This model-year offers remote engine start, smart entry with push start button, heated rear seats, rain sensing wipers as well as Honda’s Honda Sensing driver assist and technology suite. New for this year is also the availability of the infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. Both powertrains and all the equipment is available on seven different trim levels. The new Civic starts a the competitive base price of $15,990.
