The Civic is fully redesigned for 2016, touting new interior and exterior styling, new features, new equipment, new gadgets and new powertrains.  

Which Civic is the Best?

The fully redesigned 2016 Honda Civic is now one of our favorite compact cars, and the EX-T is probably our favorite Civic, especially if you add the Sensing package. It offers everything you need without any high-end, pricey extras. Find a Honda Civic for sale

 

How Much Does a 2016 Honda Civic Cost?

The Civic sedan comes in five trim levels, including base-level LX, midlevel EX, EX-T and EX-L and upscale Touring. Pricing is not yet available for the Civic Coupe, due out in the spring, but we expect it will offer similar trim levels with a slight premium over the sedan.

The LX ($19,500) offers automatic headlights, a backup camera, a 5-inch center display screen, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a 4-speaker stereo, USB connectivity, power accessories, cruise control, automatic climate control and LED running lights.

The EX ($21,100) adds Honda's LaneWatch blind spot camera, along with a 7-in center screen, a power sunroof, heated mirrors, keyless access with a remote starter, push-button starting and the HondaLink infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and text-message functionality.

Above that is the EX-T ($23,100), which boasts the turbocharged engine, fog lights, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats and SiriusXM radio with HD Radio.

Next up is the EX-L ($24,500), which adds leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, a power driver's seat and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

Topping the lineup is the Touring ($27,300), which adds Honda's excellent Honda Sensing suite of safety features (forward-collision warning with automatic braking, lane-keep assist, lane-departure warning 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 offers just two options, the Honda Sensing system, which is available on all trim levels, and a navigation system, which is offered on the EX-L.

Is the 2016 Honda Civic a Safe Car?

Because it's so new, the 2016 Civic has not yet been crash-tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or the nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

But the sedan offers a wide array of safety features. Standard equipment includes side-curtain airbags, anti-lock brakes and a backup camera, while options run the gamut from forward-collision warning with automatic braking to adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist and lane-departure warning. In terms of safety features, it's hard to say the Civic isn't at the very top of the compact-car segment.

Competition

2016 Honda Civic vs the competition

2016 Hyundai Elantra -- Hyundai's compact Elantra offers bold styling and reasonable pricing, along with the best warranty in the business.

2015 Mazda Mazda3 -- The Mazda3 touts roughly the same level of impressive technology as the Civic. It also offers sharper handling and a hatchback variant, but not as much interior space.

2016 Toyota Corolla -- Although the Corolla formerly held an upper hand over the small Honda, we think the Civic now has the advantage, especially considering its long list of high-tech features the Corolla doesn't offer.

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. The larger Honda touts many of the same benefits, but it's priced higher, so you may need to find a used example.
