The Honda Civic: Your Favorite Sedan, Coupe, or Hatchback

No matter where in Florida you drive, you will see dozens of Honda Civics on the road around you. This is true all over the country thanks to Honda Civic’s well-rounded features, fuel efficiency, and cutting-edge styling. For the most recent model year, the hatchback body style returned, meaning that you can once again choose from a sedan, coupe, or hatchback. Honda prides itself on creating models to meet every driver’s needs. With the Honda Civic, you will be able to stick to your budget even while buying a new model- and you won’t have to sacrifice features. Even the most affordable models, from recent model years, come with sought-after features, like a touchscreen, Pandora® internet radio, and smartphone connectivity. The Honda Civic has also been a leader in safety. Don’t forget that the Honda Civic was one of the very first models in the automaker’s lineup to offer the Honda Sensing™ suite with Lane Keeping Assist, Collision Mitigation Breaking (CMBS™), and more.

A Brief Look at the 2018 Honda Civic

Why mess with a good thing? After making some significant changes to the 2017 Honda Civic, including the addition of a 6-speed manual transmission on EX-T models and the return of the Civic Hatchback, the 2018 Honda Civic remains largely untouched. This model year simply carries over what the previous one excelled at: offering a comfortable ride, a well-equipped cabin, great fuel economy, and agile handling for a well-rounded compact car with wide-reaching appeal.

Two capable engine options give the Civic plenty of power, whether it’s the 2.0L 4-cylinder or the 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder. The 2018 Honda Civic comes in five trim levels: the LX, the EX, the EX-T, the EX-L, and the Touring. But with a host of safety, driver-assistance, and technology features coming standard even on the baseline trim, you really can’t go wrong no matter which model you choose. Explore each of them for yourself when you visit Hendrick Honda Bradenton for a test drive of your favorite Civic models.

Looking at the History of the Honda Civic

To put the most recent changes to the Honda Civic in perspective and get a better idea of the models you may see at your local Honda dealership, get to know this model’s history. The Honda Civic was actually the vehicle that helped Honda transition from being known for motorcycles to automobiles when it arrived as a 1973 model. The first Honda Civic fit four people with its 86.6-inch wheelbase and had 50 horsepower. It was first available as a two-door sedan or hatchback and came with standard front power disc brakes, AM radio, and reclining bucket seats. Unsurprisingly, the Honda Civic has grown with nearly every single generational change and increased its power. In the second generation, the 1980 Honda Civic was offered as a wagon or hatchback with two trims of each with a station wagon and four-door sedan being added the following year. The fourth-generation Honda Civic emphasized performance and the fifth-generation got more futuristic styling. By 2006, the eighth generation arrived with modern features.
