Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
The 2014 Honda Civic Coupe receives a new front end and a more sporty appearance. A new touch-screen display audio system with Apple's Siri Eyes Free mode is available, but only for EX and higher trims. Also new for 2014: a CVT automatic transmission, LaneWatch blind-spot display, SmartEntry with push-button start, and a slight boost in horsepower for the performance-oriented Si models.
To keep pace with a rapidly evolving market, the 9th-generation Honda Civic undergoes a substantial makeover for the 2013 model year. Key revisions include an all-new body structure, standard Bluetooth connectivity, refreshed front and rear styling on sedan models and more premium, soft-touch materials inside.
The entire Civic lineup benefits from a freshening of the front and rear ends, new alloy wheel designs and new colors. Two new trims are added to the DX and LX sedan lines. The DX-VP adds air conditioning and an AM/FM/CD audio system, while the LX-S gains alloy wheels, a sportier interior and a rear spoiler. EX-L models now feature electronic stability control as well as Bluetooth connectivity with the optional navigation system.
After a spate of makeovers and upgrades last year, Honda continues to improve the Civic by making the coupe a bit sportier, and improving fuel economy with the addition of a new continuously variable transmission (CVT). Where the Civic's dominance of the small-car field was once unquestioned, it now faces formidable competition from the likes of the Ford Focus, Hyundai Elantra, Chevrolet Cruze and Toyota Corolla. To compete, Honda gives the Civic a generous standard-equipment list, adept handling and outstanding fuel economy. The Civic continues to sell well and it remains our choice as one of the 10 Best Sedans Under $25,000 for 2014, which means its resale figures will continue to hold up nicely. The Civic lineup also offers a broad array of choices, from the fuel-efficient hybrid to a low-emissions, natural-gas model.

I own this car - My approximate mileage is 6,000overall rating 9 of 10rating details
Pros: "sleek design, great fuel economy"
Cons: "no horsepower, few add-ons"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8
"I have the EX-L. I am disappointed in the manual seat adjustments and lack of dual-climate control. It seems like an EX-L would have more options than they do. When I compare it to my husbands Ford Fusion, it lacks in extras. However, the fuel economy of the Civic is phenomenal, but it also has very little pick-up and go. Its a great car, I just wished it had more "things" going on in the interior."

"I have been a Cadillac driver for years. The Civic steers better, corners better and brakes better. Road noise is higher than the Caddy, but that is expected. I just love this car and do not plan to purchase a luxury car again. I think I am hooked on this Civic."

"I wish that I had researched consumer reviews before purchasing my 2012 Civic because in hindsight, many of the reviews that I have since read relay issues that I have faced since purchasing this vehicle. My biggest complaint from the beginning (and it is my own fault for not putting more emphasis on this during my car search)has been the sub-par quality of the interior materials in the car. The floor carpet and seating is a cheap material. I have since observed better quality in both a Kia model and a Hyundai model. The best feature of the Civic is undoubtedly the technology: the standard blue tooth access and ease of use of the technological features. The cons outnumber the pros for me though. Two years into ownership, I have had to replace the battery. After reading other reviews, it seems that the battery issue is a common problem with other owners of this model, although the dealership doesn't acknowledge a manufacturer's problem. The driving and front passenger seating is uncomfortable. The exterior paint started chipping at 12,00 miles. Many of these issues are probably to be expected from this price-point; but I expected Honda to be step above other manufacturers of economic sedans. Overall, I sadly say this will be my last Honda; and I will not recommend the Civic (the 2nd one I've owned) to others."
