After virtually four years, the present Civic continues to be probably the greatest wanting compact vehicles round.
And it’s actually good to see that Honda has not deserted the two door coupe model.
For 2019, Honda has redesigned the entrance and rear bumpers, largely. Issues are cleaner and less complicated than earlier than, which is sweet.
My loaded Touring model got here with LED headlights and these actually good wanting 18-inch wheels.
The lengthy coupe doorways really feel actually stable. They’re virtually outdated style lately since it’s actually uncommon to see a brand new 2 door automotive round.
The console has loads of storage and plugs for every little thing.
The “premium Audio with 10 audio system” sounds tremendous. However inferior to I anticipated from “10 audio system”.
Issues haven’t modified a lot inside. Which is okay. The trim on the sprint is barely totally different. And it nonetheless appears a bit confused. Not realizing what it’s attempting to be. Steel or wooden.
A minimum of it is totally different…
The display screen now has a quantity knob.
In any other case, every little thing seems and feels nice contained in the Civic.
I believe it’s nonetheless some of the fashionable interiors in its class.
The seats are tremendous. However even on the Touring model, every little thing is handbook. (A minimum of on the coupe)
And there’s no lumbar adjustment. Which might be a welcome addition.
The passenger seat would not have a top adjustment both. So shorter folks actually really feel like they’re driving in a tub…
The again seat is surprisingly useable. Extra so than different bigger coupes just like the Camaro or Mustang.
And so is the trunk.
The rear seats additionally fold down. There’s quite a lot of house within the Civic coupe for all of your stuff.
The 1.5 Liter turbo could be very quiet if you begin up the automotive within the morning.
(Nothing like another vehicles I’ve pushed currently…)
With 174HP, there’s at all times loads of energy. And the CVT largely works tremendous.
When you do not push it an excessive amount of (like most CVTs)
In any other case, issues get a bit tough and noisy as you strategy 3000RPM.
(Unsure whether it is because of the engine or the transmission. )
Idle is silent, however not vibration free… With the AC off (When ON, the engine revs a tiny bit greater and the vibrations disappear)
The steering has a really good really feel. It isn’t as delicate as many. However Wouldnt name it sporty.
The suspenssion is agency, and typically a bit an excessive amount of so.
I perceive the coupe is a sportier selection than the sedan model. Which is okay.
However the remainder of the automotive is not that sporty anyway.
The automotive at all times feels very stable and planted on the highway.
Street noise is about common. Which once more, for a “sporty’ coupe is simply tremendous. As this isn’t a luxurious automotive.
At about $27 000, the Civic Coupe Touring will not be that low cost.
However it would not actually have a lot competitors, and is on par with different loaded compacts round.
For the worth, it actually ought to have a few issues like an influence driver seat and lumbar assist.
The selection of inside colours can be very restricted.
On the Touring, it is just black. Except you choose a white automotive (then you may get a gray inside)
I believe the most effective model is definitely the $23 500 EX mannequin.
Which already comes with a sunroof, excessive finish stereo, turbo engine, and many others…
The Civic Coupe Turbo is rated at 30/37MPG.
I averaged 28 to 30 round city. However weas capable of get properly over 40 on the freeway.
I really averaged 45MPG on longer journeys. Which is kind of wonderful.
The present Civic is a big success for Honda with over 325 000 of them bought final 12 months.
The nice wanting coupe is a good way to face out a bit, whereas nonetheless shopping for a extremely popular automotive.
Listed here are all of the pricing particulars of the Civic Coupe Touring I used to be driving.
