Overview

The 2011 Honda Civic lineup starts with the frugal Civic DX, then builds up to LX, EX and EX-L models. Each of those models comes with a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 140 horspower and is hooked up to either a 5-speed manual transmission or 5-speed automatic. In addition to a range of performance upgrades, Si models get a 197-horsepower, 2.0L 4-cylinder and a 6-speed manual transmission. Hybrid models get a version of Honda's Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) mild-hybrid system, altogether producing 110 horsepower.
2016,
2016,Models with the standard engine or Si version are offered either as a 4-door sedan or 2-door coupe. The coupe version gets a slightly racier image, thanks to a different, more aggressive roofline toward the back and a tilted-back look to the rear fascia. Coupes have a full-size back seat, though entry and exit is a little more difficult. Trunk space is about the same in the sedan and coupe--very ample with a low lift-over height in both cases.
2016,
2016,Even in its base DX form, the front-wheel-drive Civic feels responsive and nimble, yet also refined and comfortable enough for long-distance cruising. Si models have a definite edgier feel that won't be to everyone's liking, but they're better-suited to everyday driving than some of the other "pocket rockets"--provided you don't mind a manual transmission.
2016,
2016,The Honda Civic Hybrid uses an Integrated Motor Assist hybrid systems that is simpler than the full hybrid systems in some rival vehicles yet achieves nearly as much of a gain in fuel economy--especially in highway driving.
2016,
2016,The other very green Civic model, the Honda Civic GX, remains the only widely available natural-gas-powered vehicle for sale in the U.S. According to Honda, the GX is eligible for federal tax credits, and natural gas costs about 35% less than gasoline.
2016,
2016,The base Civic DX doesn't come with a lot of luxury or convenience features (there's no air conditioning), but it does hit on most of the basics, including power windows and a folding rear seat to expand trunk space to accommodate long items. A DX-VP (sedan only) adds more popular equipment, including air conditioning and a 160-watt CD/MP3 sound system with auxiliary jack. The LX brings power locks, cruise control and a center console with armrest with an LX-S sedan bringing alloy wheels, a spoiler, a chrome exhaust tip and leather-wrapped steering wheel. The well-appointed EX sedan and coupe get a moonroof, split-folding back seat, steering-wheel audio controls and ambient lighting, while the EX-L adds leather upholstery, leather trim, and heated seats and mirrors. Top EX and EX-L coupes exclusively get an upgraded speaker system, including a subwoofer.
2016,
2016,An in-dash navigation system and XM Satellite Radio are optional only on the EX and EX-L. Honda says that it now includes more than 7 million points of interest; it also has voice-activation and integrated Bluetooth hands-free calling.
2016,
2016,The Civic comes with plenty of occupant protection, including front side and side-curtain airbags, electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes.

Everyone's got a pretty good sense of what the German manufacturers have planned on the diesel front. After all, it's their strong suit and the core of their business in their home market and throughout Europe. But when it comes to Honda, particularly in the U.S., the picture is more complex. After all, this is the company that has the highest corporate average fuel economy, was the first to introduce a hybrid car in America, and prides itself on its environmental image. The backstory that has been passed along is this: Honda engineers were not eager to introduce a diesel in the European market, though they were told it was key to success there. So they designed what they like to call a "Honda" diesel and introduced it to the market with a psychedelic ad narrated by Garrison Keillor.
