The 2015 Honda Civic sedan adds a new trim level, slotting between the base LX and mid-level EX. This Special Edition model (SE) adds features like Honda's LaneWatch, automatic climate control, and an upgraded Display Audio system with HondaLink and additional tweeter speakers.
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.
About Honda Civic
The 2015 Honda Civic adds a new Special Edition model, slotting between the base LX and more lavish EX models. It includes higher-end items like Honda's LaneWatch right-side-view camera, automatic climate control, and the EX's Display Audio. The Civic SE comes in sedan only, and just with the continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) introduced last year. It gives Civic buyers another option, bolstering Honda's compact against the likes of the most formidable competition it's ever faced. Be it the Ford Focus, Chevrolet Cruze, Hyundai Elantra, Kia Forte, or longtime rival Toyota Corolla, the compact car market is tougher than ever. With its broad array of choices and fuel-efficient powertrains, however, the Civic remains a strong contender.
