2017 Honda Civic Review and Specs

The Honda Civic is one of the most recognizable cars in the market and has long maintained a fantastic reputation in the automotive community. Now in its tenth generation, there’s so much to love about this latest iteration.

Since 1972, Honda has perfected the Honda Civic. Each generation of the Civic has introduced a redesign and upgraded interior. It is one of the best-selling vehicles in the world and continues to surprise with this latest 2017 model, which has also been called one of the best vehicles of 2017. At first glance, the newest design is sleek and smart. The lines appear straighter and it puts off a major sports vibe that can attract potential customers from all across the car-seeking spectrum. New for 2017 is the 1.5-liter direct-injected turbocharged four-cylinder paired with a six-speed manual transmission for both the coupe and sedan.

2017 Honda Civic Review

The Honda Civic has come a long way since I last owned one in 2008. This tenth generation is good looking, to say the least. This newest iteration comes with an updated powertrain that pairs the 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder paired to a six-speed manual transmission. If a manual transmission isn’t your style, you can choose an automatic transmission as well. Also offered is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (base model) that’s paired to a manual or automatic transmission. Speaking of that turbocharged engine, it is surprisingly powerful.

Available trim options include the base model EX Sedan, EX-L Coupe, EX-L Sedan, EX-T Sedan, EX-T Coupe, LX-Sedan, LX-Coupe, LX-Sedan, and Si Coupe, which you can take a look at below:

Each trim level offers its own goodies and comforts. New for 2017 is an updated interior that offers even more passenger and cargo room than its predecessors. The power driver seats offer a large range of motion with a wide variety of driver heights that can seat anyone no matter how tall or short they are. The ride speaks for itself as the handling is impeccable. Large undulations, especially located mid-corner, are comfortably controlled.

The infotainment system will take some getting used to as the no-knob volume system might be a bit difficult to adapt to. The dashboard interface is touchscreen-only and can pair all of your smartphone needs. Overall, the interior feels like you’re in the future yet isn’t past the point of overly confusing its passengers. It is a one-of-a-kind vehicle in a long line of Honda Civics.

If you’re in the market to buy a used Honda Civic, you’ve made the right choice. It’s a vehicle that will keep your drive comfortable all while getting some of the best gas mileage in the automotive industry. Did we mention it's safety rating makes it a great car for teen drivers?
