The redesigned 2016 Honda Civic has more tech, is bigger yet still managed to loose some weight.
Lovers of the best-selling car for 17 consecutive years, rejoice! The 2016 Honda Civic models will hit Canadian sales floors this fall.
The Civic models will include a coupe, sedan, high-performance Si models, Type-R and a 5-door hatchback.
The 10th generation Civic brings with it several new safety technologies, including Collision Mitigation Braking, Road Departure Mitigation and, brand new to Honda, Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow.
Under the hood, the Civic sedan LX and EX trims will feature a 2.0-litre, i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine, mated to either a 6-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The Civic sedan EX-T and Touring will be powered by a 1.5-litre, direct-injected, turbocharged DOHC inline-4, mated to a CVT.
The new Civic sedan is 20mm lower than the current model and has a longer wheelbase (30 mm). The vehicle’s total rigidity has also been improved by 25 per cent, partially because 12 per cent of the body is made of ultra high-strength steel. But despite all the improvements, the weight of the car is still 31 kg lighter than the current Civic – you go, Honda.
