The Civic is offered in eight trim levels. Traditional Civic models offer LX, HF, EX, and EX-L trims, along with a new-for-2015 Civic SE. Sport-minded drivers can pick the Civic Si. For fuel economy buffs, there's the Civic Hybrid and the Civic Natural Gas. Available as a sedan or a coupe, the base-level
Civic LX ($19,100) includes air conditioning, power accessories such as power windows, locks and mirrors, a 5-inch center display screen, a rearview camera, Bluetooth and a sound system that boasts a CD player, an auxiliary plug, Pandora Internet radio and an iPod interface. Step up to the
Civic HF ($20,600) and you'll be driving a model designed to maximize fuel economy. The sedan-only HF boasts low rolling-resistance tires, aerodynamic wheels and underbody panels, and a rear spoiler. Above the LX and below the EX is the new
Civic SE ($20,900), which is offered only as a sedan. In addition to including a standard CVT automatic, the Civic SE adds keyless access with push-button start, Honda's LaneWatch blind spot monitoring system, automatic climate control, a 7-in touchscreen and 15-in alloy wheels. Next up is the
Civic EX ($21,100), which is once again offered as a sedan or coupe. It adds a power sunroof, 16-in alloy wheels, variable intermittent wipers, HondaLink smartphone integration, and a 60/40-split folding rear seatback. Topping the traditional Civic range is the
EX-L ($23,300), which includes larger alloy wheels, leather upholstery, heated front seats and fog lights. EX-L sedan models also include a power driver's seat. Shoppers who opt for the sporty
Civic Si ($23,400), offered as a sedan or a coupe, will get a more powerful 4-cylinder engine, along with a limited-slip differential, sport suspension and fog lights. Many of the Si's features mirror the Civic EX's equipment. If it's fuel economy you're after, the Civic offers two choices: the
Civic Hybrid ($25,300) or the
Civic Natural Gas ($27,200). The Civic Hybrid's equipment roughly mirrors that of the Civic EX, though some EX-L features are optional. The Civic Hybrid also adds standard forward-collision warning and lane-departure warning systems. The Civic Natural Gas boasts the same features as the Civic LX does. Like most Honda models, the Civic offers few options. The exception is for Hybrid, Si, EX and EX-L trims, which are available with a voice-activated navigation system.
Safety The 2015 Honda Civic comes standard with stability control, side-curtain airbags, front-side airbags, a rearview camera and 4-wheel anti-lock brakes. EX and EX-L models also boast Honda's LaneWatch blind spot monitoring system, while the Civic Hybrid includes forward-collision warning and lane-departure warning systems. In government testing, the Civic earned five overall stars -- a score made up of 4-star ratings on frontal and rollover tests and a 5-star rating in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's side-impact assessment.
