Introducing the 2018 Honda Civic

For over 50 years, Honda has built a rock-solid reputation for quality vehicles offered at a reasonable price. Attracting generation after generation to the ranks of Honda enthusiasts, the Civic has achieved an iconic status in the American car culture. The 2018 Civic continues to build onto its stellar reputation with a mix of practicality, comfort, and fun-to drive personality.

Sporty and Sophisticated Style

The Civic is available in three body styles including a two-door coupe, four-door sedan, and a four-door hatchback. Each body style is the perfect blend of both sophisticated and sporty style. There is a bold, front end with available LED headlights to brighten the way. Body lines are sharp and flowing, and when they are combined with the Civic's wide aggressive stance, it looks sporty from any angle. In the rear, you will find the distinct C-shaped LED taillights that are unique to the Civic family.

A Well-Planned Interior

Whether if you're in the coupe, sedan, or hatchback, inside you will find a roomy cabin with seating for five. The Civic gives you ample room inside, nearing mid-sized vehicle space in a compact package. The interior is composed of quality materials and soft touch surfaces. Seats are comfortable and supportive with upscale styling. For a touch of luxury, heated leather seats are available in higher trims. 

Ergonomics are well-thought-out and controls are easily accessible to the driver. Many features can be accessed and adjusted with the standard illuminated steering wheel controls including the audio system, Bluetooth features, voice control functions, and cruise control. The futuristic digital instrument panel is easy-to-read and provides you with the information you need at a quick glance, so you can keep your eyes on the road.  

Power to Please

The driving experience is second-to-none, with powerful, fuel-efficient engine options and a suspension that will have you lusting for fun, curvy roads. For sedan and coupe models, there are two engine options: 
  • LX and EX trims come with a 2.0-liter naturally-aspirated 4-cylinder engine producing 158 hp and providing an EPA rating of 40 MPG on the highway.* 
  • EX-T and above trims are powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine producing a robust 174 hp and providing an EPA rating of up to 42 MPG on the highway.* 
The 2018 Civic hatchbacks come standard with the same 1.5-liter turbocharged engine. Sport and Sport Touring hatchback trims produce an additional 6 horsepower, bringing the total to 180 hp, thanks to a high-flowing, center-mounted, dual outlet exhaust. 

Both engine choices can be paired with a smooth continuously variable transmission (CVT), or for those who enjoy being more connected to the car and rowing through the gears, a slick-shifting six-speed manual is also available.

Keeping You Connected

Today we are more connected to technology than ever before. The 2018 Civic is able to become an extension of the technology that we use every day to stay connected, and helps provide you with a more convenient and entertaining commute. Bluetooth connectivity, a USB port, a 5-inch display screen, remote entry, and a rearview camera all come standard with every Civic. There is an abundance of other features and technology available. Here are some of the stand-outs:
  • Premium Audio System - Play music from your favorite source though a full, rich-sounding 450-watt, 10-speaker audio system with an easy to use 7-inch touch screen display. Connectivity includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth Streaming Audio, Pandora compatibility, SiriusXM Radio, and HD Radio. 
  • Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with voice recognition
  • SMS Text Message Function
  • Wireless Charging Mat - Charge your compatible cell phone without annoying wires
  • Smart Entry with push-button start - Allows you to unlock and start your vehicle without taking your key out of your pocket or bag.
  • Remote Start - Allows you to pre-heat or cool your Civic
Keeping Safety in Mind

Honda goes above and beyond to protect you and your passengers. Not only is the 2018 Civic designed to achieve top ratings from NHTSA and IIHS, but it also available with the latest in Honda's safety technology to help prevent you from being in an accident in the first place. Honda Sensing provides a suite of intelligent driver assistance features and safety systems as extra protection for you and your passengers. These features include:
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System - Provides help with braking the Civic when an otherwise unavoidable collision with another vehicle is detected in front of you.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System - A small camera that senses road markers to alert you if you are about to leave the road, and it can take action to help prevent you from doing so.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow - Helps to maintain a set following distance on the highway so you don't need to manually adjust your speed if the vehicle ahead of you slows.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System - Adjusts the steering to bring you back into the center of your lane if it detects that you are drifting out of your lane without signaling. 
  • Honda Lane Watch - Live video of the passenger-side roadway will come up on the infotainment screen to show you what may be lurking in your blind spot
More Ways to Wow

For those that have a passion for driving, a love of carving through curvy roads, and an addiction to torque and horsepower pushing you into your seat, Honda has a Civic for you. The Civic is also available in Si and Type R versions for the ultimate driving experience. The Si, available in coupe or sedan form, continues to provide surprising performance with a 1.5-liter engine that has been dialed up to 205 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque. Mated to the Si's powerful engine is a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission, and a helical limited-slip differential to put the power confidently to the ground. Handling has been upgraded beyond standard Civics, thanks to an Adaptive Damper System that grants you exhilarating and precise cornering ability for the track or the street. Other upgrades include:
  • aggressive body work
  • larger brakes
  • aggressively bolstered seats
  • leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. 
The long sought after Civic Type R is also available for the first time on U.S. soil. The Type R is the ultimate Honda Civic. Bred from 70 years of race engineering experience, Honda has poured their knowledge into the Type R. They have created a track-ready, road-legal car that can be enjoyed by racers and enthusiasts alike. With a 2.0-litre VTEC turbocharged engine Honda is able to expel 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. A close-ratio 6-speed transmission with rev-match has been paired to the engine, along with a helical limited-slip differential to power through corners. Twenty-inch alloy wheels with sticky performance tires help the Type R adhere to the road or track. Stopping power is provided by Brembo 4-piston calipers with 13.8-inch ventilated, cross-drilled rotors, and brake cooling ducts. An Adaptive Damper System actively controls the suspension and adjusts accordingly to handle everything from smooth highway cruising to being pushed hard on the race track.
