Pop Open the Hood of the 2018 Honda Civic
The Honda Civic is heralded for its performance. Plus, the 2018 model lets you choose between a few available engines, so you can emphasize the features you find important.
The first option is the 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. This engine packs quite the punch with 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque. Plus, this motor comes with a standard 6-speed manual transmission for precise handling around every turn. If you prefer a more hands-off transition between gears, opt for the available CVT (continuously variable transmission) instead.
You can add even more oomph to your ride by selecting the available 1.5L 4-cylinder engine with a single-scroll turbocharger. This high-powered option sports 174 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque. Plus, the CVT comes standard with this motor, so you’ll enjoy an exceptionally smooth ride every time you hop behind the wheel.
Civic Fuel Efficiency
If you’re looking into a compact sedan like the Honda Civic, fuel economy is likely a crucial point. Thankfully, this model is highly efficient, no matter which engine you settle on.
If you pair the available in-line 4-cylinder engine with the 6-speed manual transmission, for instance, you’ll get an EPA-estimated 28 city MPG/40 highway MPG.1 If instead you choose the available CVT, you’ll get an added 3 MPG in the city, bringing the EPA-estimated total to 31 city MPG/40 highway MPG.1
Although the power increases with the 4-cylinder turbocharger engine, you won’t have to sacrifice any efficiency. This motor gets an EPA-estimated 32 city MPG/ 42 highway MPG.1 So, no matter where you’re heading, you can spend more time on the road and less time at the pump.
Additional Honda Civic Performance Features
There’s more to premier performance than a flashy engine, and the 2018 Civic implements multiple features to create an enjoyable driving experience.
If the road gets bumpy, you likely won’t notice thanks to the absorbing power of the MacPherson Strut Front Suspension and Multi-Link Rear Suspension. Plus, a stabilizer bar for both the front and rear helps minimize the effects of exterior conditions.
You can also rest easy knowing the Eco Assist™ System is monitoring your driving habits and giving you constructive feedback to ensure optimal efficiency.
