2021 Civic Sedan – Model overview
The 2021 Honda Civic sedan is a sleek and stylish compact car with a big personality. The Civic offers sparkling performance and handling, a quiet, sophisticated ride, and a contemporary, well-appointed, and deceptively spacious cabin. It is available in LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, and Touring models, each offering increasing levels of comfort and equipment.
Few small sedans can match the Civic’s compelling blend of satisfying performance, economy, elegant comfort, and everyday practicality at such great value. Here, we’ll take a close look at some of the Civic sedan’s superb features that make it the right choice for you.
Head-Turning Good Looks
The 2021 Honda Civic sedan sits long, low, and wide, creating an aggressive stance on the road. It stands out from the crowd with its bold front-end design, stylish headlights, and distinctive C-shaped taillights, while the athletic, flowing lines of the elegant profile create the impression of motion, even when stationary.
LX models feature automatic projector-beam headlights, 16-inch steel wheels with classy full covers, body-colored door handles and power door mirrors, and taillights with integrated LED light bars. The Sport trim adds smart entry with walk-away auto lock, fog lights, 18-inch alloy wheels, a gloss black decklid spoiler, and an exclusive central exhaust outlet.
With the EX, you get 17-inch alloy wheels, a one-touch power moonroof, heated door mirrors, a roof-mounted fin-type antenna, and a body-colored decklid spoiler. The range-topping Touring trim offers rain-sensing wipers, LED headlights, 18-inch wheels, chrome door handles, and mirrors with integrated turn signals.
Spacious and Sophisticated Interior
The Civic sedan’s spacious and modern driver-focused cabin seats five people in comfort, while the roomy 15.1-cubic-foot trunk holds plenty of luggage. Folding down the rear seatback gives you even more cargo capacity. The interior offers clever storage solutions for all the stuff you need to carry, including a center console with a sliding armrest and storage compartment.
In the well-equipped LX trim, you’ll find premium fabric upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, an intuitive driver information display, LED gear selection indicators, an automatic climate control system, a tilt and telescoping steering column, electronic remote trunk release, and a front 12-volt power outlet.
The Sport trim offers unique sporty details, push-button start, 60/40 split-folding rear seats, paddle shifters, sport pedals, and a leather-trimmed steering wheel and shift knob. Sport models and above feature remote engine start that, in chilly or sweltering conditions, enables you to get the cabin to a comfortable temperature before you get in.
Stepping up to the EX trim gets you heated front seats, an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a rear seat center armrest, dual-zone automatic climate control, and LED pocket lights. The EX-L adds leather-trimmed seats, and an automatic dimming rearview mirror, while the luxurious Touring model features a four-way power-adjustable passenger seat, heated rear outboard seats, and sport pedals.
In the Civic sedan, you and your passengers can stay connected and entertained by the latest infotainment technology. LX models feature a central 5-inch color LCD screen, Bluetooth for audio streaming and hands-free calling, and a USB audio interface. Play your favorite tunes or podcasts on the 160-watt four-speaker sound system. The Sport model adds a customizable 7-inch touch-screen display, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration, an SMS text message function, a USB charging port, and a 180-watt audio system.
The HondaLink app on Sport models and up enables you to control many of your Civic’s functions directly from your smartphone. You can easily locate your vehicle, start your engine remotely, receive vehicle notifications, and even schedule service appointments with your dealership.
In the EX and up, you get satellite and HD radio for listening to your music, news, talk shows, and audio books. Touring models feature a premium 450-watt 10-speaker audio system that gives you concert hall-quality sound.
Thrilling and Economical Performance
Honda vehicles are renowned for their exciting performance and superb handling characteristics, and the Civic sedan is no exception. It’s immensely fun to drive, while offering passengers a smooth, quiet, and refined ride. The Civic’s compact size and agile handling make it easy to maneuver around town, while the composed suspension makes highway cruising seem effortless.
Under the hood of LX and Sport models is a responsive 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine delivering 158 horsepower and 138 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels. You’ll be rewarded with up to 30 mpg in the city and 38 mpg when you head out on the highway.
The rest of the Civic lineup get a punchy 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that develops 174 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. This engine returns up to 32 mpg for city driving and an impressive 42 mpg on the highway. Both engines are matched with a continuously variable transmission, which on Sport and Touring models features paddle shifters for fingertip gear shifts.
Driver Assist Technology
Every Civic sedan comes standard with Honda Sensing, a full suite of driver assistance features that help keep you and your passengers safe on the road. It includes adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, lane departure warning, and a road departure mitigation system.
You also get automatic high-beam headlights and a multi-angle rearview camera with normal, wide-angle, and top-down views. EX models and above add Honda LaneWatch which shows a live video display of your passenger-side blind spot from a small camera on your right-side mirror when you activate your right turn signal.
Helping to keep you on track and in control are active safety technologies such as vehicle stability assist with traction control, hill start assist, an anti-lock braking system, electronic brake-force distribution, brake assist, and an electric parking brake with automatic brake hold. A tire pressure monitoring system alerts you to a loss of pressure in one or more tires.
