2016 Honda Civic

updated: August 04, 2017 17:11 | launched: April 21, 2016

Honda's renowned C-segment competitor is all grown up and features fastback styling and a new turbocharged i-VTEC engine. Now looking more aggressive, the tenth-generation Civic gets a sophisticated finish both inside and outside with the use of new materials. It will be available with either a 1.8-liter or 1.5-liter turbo that are both mated to a continuously variable transmission.


The last three generations of the Honda Civic have all been decent machines; reliable, sleek, and practical to drive and own. But the more enthusiastic of drivers, those who made the Civic so desirable in the nineties for its performance potential, lamented the way that Honda's once-exciting VTEC econo rocket became a “friendlier” car, one that would cater more to supermarket trips rather than weekend fun runs. SiR, DOHC, and VTEC badges were exchanged for Euro-4, i-VTEC and EL emblems and stickers.

Thankfully this new Civic RS is about to turn that around on its head, as Honda delivers a car that recaptures the mojo that made the Civic great, all while preserving the elements that the modern car owner needs in a daily driver.
