A new Honda Civic is upon us – and you can now play around on Honda’s website until you find the flavor that’s right for you. On Wednesday, the automaker officially launched an online car configurator for the just-released 2012 Civic, giving buyers the chance to spec out a growing palette of Civic choices.

The most basic model is the Civic DX, which starts at just $15,605 for a coupe, or $15,805 for a sedan. Front side and side curtain airbags are standard, as are power windows, anti-lock brakes, and little else. To add some more luxury to your Civic, you have to step up to the LX model. While it commands a premium of around $2,000 over the Civic DX, the LX adds a USB audio interface, power locks and mirrors, cruise control, keyless entry, and – most importantly – air-conditioning.

For even more content, Honda offers the Civic EX, which now starts around $20,500. Bluetooth is standard on the top-level Civic, along with a sunroof and alloy wheels. Options include a navigation system, which is $1,500 extra, and leather upholstery with heated front seats, which runs about the same. Just don’t look for a stick – while the DX and LX will offer the choice of manual or automatic transmission, the EX is only available with an automatic.

But it’s not just the bread-and-butter “traditional” Civic lineup that makes the online configurator so enticing. Also available to build are the high-mileage Civic HF, the sporty Civic Si, and the eco-friendly Civic Hybrid.

Only offered as a sedan, the $19,455 Civic HF comes with extra aerodynamic touches and a mileage-boosting engine to help it be as fuel efficient is possible. The result is 41mpg – one of the top EPA ratings among non-hybrids, and just a few miles per gallon short of the $24,050 Civic Hybrid, which comes in at 44.

Honda also has a Civic flavor for anyone who prefers high performance to hypermiling. Known as the Civic Si, Honda’s sporty Civic starts at $22,205 in coupe form or $22,405 as a sedan, and offers a 201-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder paired exclusively to a 6-speed manual transmission.

The 2012 Civic may not look that different from its predecessor, but as Honda’s online configurator proves, it’s tweaked just enough to stay on top of its game among an increasingly competitive compact car class.
