If you’ve been missing the Honda Civic, the wait is over.
Starting at $22,695, including $995 for destination, the new Civic is now officially on sale, at least in sedan form.
That price gets you into a base LX, which includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes 158 horsepower and pairs with a continuously-variable automatic transmission (CVT).
Pop for a Sport and you’ll be out $24,095 while adding 18-inch wheels, a sport mode, nicer audio, and other features. As of now, there’s no manual, just a CVT, in the Sport sedan.
The EX adds the 1.5-liter turbo-four (180 hp/177 lb-ft), heated seats, dual-zone climate control, blind-spot monitoring, and a power sunroof, and costs $25,695. If you want leather, nav, premium audio, wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, wireless cell-phone charging, and premium audio, the top-trim Touring model will cost $29,295. Both the EX and Touring have CVTs.
We haven’t yet decided to add the Civic to our The Right Spec series, and if we do, I will let Matt do his thing. That said, I can see the EX being the volume seller — it seems to have a nice balance of features and cost.
In other Civic news, you can see a small bit of the hatchback in a leaked photo that involves former TTACer Alex Dykes, aka Alex on Autos. Click here to check it out.
