2023 Honda Civic Sport

new 2023 honda civic trim level comparison

Sport is a trim level for the hatchback and the sedan version of the Honda Civic. Both configurations come with a four-cylinder engine that can generate around 158 horsepower for some extra excitement. On the sedan, this engine is mated to the continuously variable transmission (CVT) with paddle shifters. On the hatchback, it’s paired with a six-speed manual transmission, with a CVT upgrade available.

If you upgrade the hatchback to the CVT, you’ll get the two features of the sedan: the three-mode drive system and the paddle shifters. This upgrade also provides you with good fuel economy. The EPA-estimated figures are nearly identical between the hatchback and the sedan. They measure out to the following:

  • Civic Hatchback Sport: 37 mpg on the highway and 29 mpg in the city.
  • Civic Sedan Sport: 37 mpg on the highway and 30 mpg in the city.

With either choice, you can easily travel far. Thanks to the model’s easily reachable paddle shifters, you can rev up the model’s engine and accelerate down the highway.

With such an excellent performance, you need an interior to match. The unique sport pedals of the Civic Sport allude to its name, which you can press down on in either the Civic hatchback or the sedan. The model’s standard push-button start is also a great addition. With a quick button press, you can immediately get the engine roaring. Its leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel add more elegant touches and provide an easy surface to grip as you get the Civic moving.

The remote engine start of the new Civic Sport is another great feature. It’s standard on the Civic sedan configuration and available on the hatchback Sport with CVT. It can bring added convenience to every commute because it starts the engine and prepares the automatic climate control system.

2023 Honda Civic EX

The 2023 Honda Civic EX is equipped with a 1.5L four-cylinder turbocharged engine that improves performance. The engine also comes with a CVT that immediately speeds you up. It generates around 177 lb-ft of torque and 180 horsepower. The EX trim also improves fuel economy, getting around 42 mpg on the highway and 33 mpg in the city.

The 2023 Honda Civic EX enjoys a fresh, sharp redesign of its body. It has automatic LED headlights, taillights, and brake lights.

As for the car’s exterior, the EX comes with 17-inch black glossy wheels. It also has durable all-season tires and a compact spare tire you can use for emergencies. In addition, the Civic EX door handles match the exterior paint color, and it comes equipped with a security system that you can remotely disarm.

The 2023 Civic EX trim has various elegant interior features, such as a leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel, heated front seats, and a rear armrest. It also offers family-friendly additions, such as a storage pocket on the back of the passenger’s seat and rear cup holders. In addition, you get dual-zone auto climate control, which allows you to adjust temperatures to match your back-seat passengers’ needs without disrupting the settings in the front.

In addition, the Civic EX comes with a 7-inch driver information interface behind its wheel. It has double speakers, with an eight-speaker 180-watt audio system. Honda also equips the EX with a modern 7-inch touch screen and an infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
