Trying to stay put at the helm of the segment is immensely improbable since newer and fresher competitors are always jostling for that piece of the pie with newer and much better features and equipment. However, comparing to Serena Williams and Roger Federer, the Civic has always strived to remain relevant at the helm of them all.

Anything at the top of the game must have credible strengths, and the Honda Civic is no exception. The vehicle delivers in terms of performance and equipment list. True, most Honda Civics come fitted with top-of-the-line 1.8L 4-cylinder engines that are known for their solid EPA ratings.

Most assuredly, a Honda will guarantee its buyers a roomy interior, cozy ride, and better safety ratings, which go a long way to buff out its appealing attributes. However, it doesn’t go without saying that despite the hullabaloo, there are other worthy vehicles out there, too. You should check out the Mazda 3, Ford Focus and Kia Forte but what is more important is that the 2016 Honda Civic is c currently ranked above some rivals as 2016 Kia Soul, 2016 Chevrolet Cruze but also the upcoming Hyundai Elantra and Volkswagen Jetta.

Engine – Honda Civic 2016

From feasibility and preliminary research study, it is clear that the 2016 Honda Civic won’t come with any new engines. That said, the vehicle will return with previous model’s 1.8L 4-cyl, 1.5L 4-cyl, and 2.4L powerplants.

The 1.8L 4-cyl engine is good for 143 horsepower and 129 pounds of torque. The CVT is standard for the 2016 Honda Civic SE, EX, EX-L and top-of-the-line HF sedans. The family EPA ratings with the CVT are 30/39/33 mpg in the city/highway/combined. However, the manual extended to the 2016 Honda Civic EX dims the ratings to 28/36/31 mpg.

2016 Honda Civic Hybrid should return with the 1.5L 4-cyl petrol engine paired to a lithium-ion battery and electric motor. The combination cranks out 110 horsepower and 127 pounds of torque.

As for the 2016 Honda Civic Si, expect it to feature a 2.4L 4-cyl engine able to generate 205 horsepower and 174 pounds of torque. The sole transmission provided for the powerplant is a 6-speed manual.

The safety department hasn’t been left to the dogs, as the 2016 Honda Civic will come equipped with side curtain airbags, blind spot camera, emergency crash alert, antilock brakes, stability control, and rear-view camera.
