What We Like

Spacious and high-quality cabin; best-in-class power and fuel efficiency with 1.5-liter turbo engine; refined ride and handling; three body styles; reasonably priced Si model; bonkers-fun Type R model

What We Don't

Frustrating touchscreen interface; hypersensitive forward-collision warning; no automatic transmission on Si or Type R; Si is a bit down on power relative to competitors

Overview

What's New in the 2018 Honda Civic?

This is the first full model year for the high-performance Civic Si and ultra-performance Civic Type R. Otherwise, the expansive Civic lineup is unchanged for 2018.See the 2018 Honda Civic models for sale near you

Which Civic is the Best?

We can't recommend the superb 1.5-liter turbocharged engine enough, so that means our recommendation begins with the EX-T sedan and coupe (every hatchback already includes it). That trim should also give you everything you really need, plus plenty of niceties like a sunroof, satellite radio and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

How Much Does a 2018 Honda Civic Cost?

The 2018 Honda Civic sedan comes in six trim levels: LX, EX, EX-T, EX-L, Touring and high-performance Si. The coupe adds an LX-P trim in place of the EX. The hatchback can be had in LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, Sport Touring and ultra-performance Type-R.

The LX ($18,900 sedan; $19,300 coupe; $20,100 hatchback) offers 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, LED running lights, a backup camera, a height-adjustable driver's seat, Bluetooth, a USB port and a 4-speaker sound system. The hatchback comes standard with the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine.

The LX-P coupe ($22,000) adds a sunroof and passive entry with keyless start.

The Sport hatchback ($21,700) adds a more powerful version of the turbocharged engine, 18-in wheels, fog lights, a center-mounted exhaust port and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

The EX ($21,200 sedan; $23,200 hatchback) adds to the LX's equipment a sunroof, heated mirrors, passive entry and keyless start, Honda's LaneWatch blind spot monitoring system, a 7-in touchscreen, an extra USB port, an 8-speaker sound system, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The hatchback reverts to the standard engine tune, 16-in wheels and styling.

Above that is the EX-T ($21,600 sedan; $21,700 coupe), which adds to the EX the turbocharged engine, fog lights, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, satellite radio and HD Radio. The EX-T coupe includes a 10-speaker sound system.

Next up is the EX-L ($23,900 sedan; $23,600 coupe; $25,700 hatchback), which adds a standard CVT, leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an 8-way power driver's seat and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The hatchback includes a navigation system that's optional on the EX-L sedan.

The Touring ($26,700 sedan; $26,300 coupe) adds 18-in wheels, LED headlights, automatic wipers, a 4-way power passenger seat and the navigation system. The sedan further adds heated rear seats and a 10-speaker sound system.

The Sport Touring hatchback ($28,700) combines the regular Sport trims' wheels, styling, exhaust and engine tune with all the Touring's trim equipment. It also has a 12-speaker sound system.

Standard on the Touring trims but optional on all other above trim levels is the Honda Sensing package, which includes forward-collision warning and automatic braking, lane-keep assist, and adaptive cruise control, along with a navigation system, LED headlights, heated rear seats, a power passenger seat, a 10-speaker sound system and automatic wipers.

The Civic Si ($24,100 sedan and coupe) is equipped like the EX-T, but gets a sport-tuned suspension with adaptive dampers, bigger front brakes, a limited-slip differential, special sport seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, styling flourishes and a 10-speaker sound system.

The Civic Type R ($34,100) is comparable to the Touring in terms of equipment, but also boasts 20-in wheels, bigger brakes, its own sport-tuned suspension and dampers, and even racier styling inside and out.

Is the 2018 Honda Civic a Safe Car?

The 2018 Civic comes standard with antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, front side airbags, full-length side airbags and a rearview camera. Honda's LaneWatch blind spot monitoring system comes standard on the EX trim level and higher (EX-T on the coupe). Available on every trim but Si and Type R is the Honda Sensing package, consisting of forward-collision warning and automatic braking and lane-departure assist.

In government crash tests, the Civic sedan and hatchback received a perfect five stars in every crash category. The coupe fell short in only its 4-star frontal score. The nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave every Civic body style the best possible scores for crash protection and prevention, but a Poor headlight rating kept them from getting Top Safety Pick awards.

Competition

2018 Honda Civic vs the competition

2018 Mazda3 -- The Mazda3 is the strongest alternative. Its fuel-efficient engines, sharp driving dynamics and handsome styling are top consideration points.

2018 Hyundai Elantra -- The value-packed Elantra boasts classy styling, impressive refinement and the typical Hyundai virtues of abundant features for the money and an industry-best warranty.

2018 Volkswagen Golf GTI and Golf R -- Here are your best bets when seeking Si and Type R alternatives. Each is a bit more grown up and refined, but still a lot of fun.

Used Honda Accord -- If you like the Civic's equipment, features and dependability, but you need more interior room, you'll probably want to consider an Accord. It's priced higher, though, so you may need to find a used example.
