The 2016 Honda Civic sedan will come with two engine options and two transmissions, based on exclusive Honda dealer information obtained by TFLcar.com.
The next-generation Civic will come with one of two engines. The first is a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter. The second and most notable is a turbocharged 1.5-liter, the first factory Honda Civic available in the U.S. with a turbocharged engine.
The 2016 Civic will be available in the usual LX and EX models and they will be joined by EX-L and Touring models.
The sedan will still be available with a manual transmission, a six speed in this case, but only in two models – the LX with the 2.0-liter and the EX with the 1.5-liter turbo. Neither one will be available with the Honda Sensing package of driver assistance technology.
The continuously variable transmission (CVT) Civics have a lot more options. The Honda Sensing package is available on LX and EX models with the 2.0-liter. The 1.5-liter engine is only available in EX trim or higher.
The 1.5-liter EX will be available with Honda Sensing. The EX-L models – L for leather if it follows the same nomenclature as the HR-V – is available with Honda Sensing or navigation.
At the top of the range is a new Touring model. Although no specifics can be gleaned from the information, if the Civic Touring has the same options as the new 2016 Honda Accord Touring, it will come with Honda Sensing and navigation.
The new Civic is not yet in showrooms, so some of this information may change. No pricing has been announced.
