2016 Honda Civic Touring Front Three Quarters 04
The redesigned 2016 Honda Civic sedan has a starting price $165 higher than its predecessor, and boasts improved EPA fuel economy ratings across the board. Pricing starts with the base LX model with a six-speed manual, at $19,475, and ranges up to the top-trim Touring which costs $27,335, both including destination. Fuel economy goes up with either of the 2016 Honda Civic’s engine choices, which include a 158-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder on LX and EX models and a 174-hp, 1.5-liter turbo-four on EX-T, EX-L, and Touring models. When mated with a CVT, the 2.0-liter engine gets 31/41 mpg city/highway, and the CVT/1.5-liter turbo combination is rated at 31/42 mpg city/highway, both upticks from the last Civic’s 30/39 mpg city/highway ratings. When mated to the standard six-speed manual on the LX model, the 2.0-liter engine delivers a slightly lower 27/40 mpg city/highway.

Adding the CVT to the Civic LX costs $800 extra, and the EX 2.0L starts at $21,875. The cheapest model with the 1.5-liter turbo engine is the EX-T, which costs $23,035. Every trim level offers a stand-alone, $1,000 Honda Sensing package with active safety features like lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control. The Touring comes standard with Honda Sensing. Though built-in navigation is only optional on the EX-L and standard on the Touring, all trims EX and above come standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities, meaning that 2016 Civic owners can use smartphone navigation apps on the car’s 7-inch display screen. The 2016 Honda Civic sedan goes on sale in November, and other variants are scheduled to debut in the coming months. Look for a Civic coupe to arrive next, followed by a five-door hatchback, and Si and Type R variants.
