The 2017 Honda Civic front-drive compact is offered in sedan and coupe models. The Civic was all-new for the 2016 model year, and most of its features carried over for 2017. The Civic is slotted between the Fit and Accord in Honda’s lineup.

For 2017, Honda will offer the Civic coupe and sedan with the new powertrain pairing of the 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and a six-speed manual transmission. A 2.0-liter four cylinder engine (the base engine) is also available with a standard manual transmission, while both engine options can be paired with the available CVT. EPA fuel economy from the 2016 model year for the 1.5-liter engine is 31/42 mpg, while the 2.0-liter engine gets a rating of 31/41 mpg with the CVT and 27/40 with the manual.
The 2017 Honda Civic coupe and sedan models will be offered in multiple trim levels from LX to Touring. The manual transmission will come standard on the base models, while most trims feature the CVT as standard.
What Hartford Drivers Think
The 2017 Honda Civic is now a year into its 10th generation, and although in recent years the car wasn’t the most exciting vehicle in its segment, the redesigned model is much improved. The exterior moves away from safe, subdued styling in favor of an exterior that sparks interest. The interior offers up more passenger and cargo room, with rear passengers sitting more comfortably, but the sloping roof makes it harder to get in and out of the rear seat for taller passengers.
For cars as efficient as they are, the engines deliver a modestly powerful punch, and the overall driving dynamics of the Civic are spirited. The Honda Civic may offer well-controlled body motions and good performance, but the steering feel could be tighter. The 2017 Honda Civic clamors to once again be one of the top contenders in the compact segment, no longer comfortable with complacency.
Look for a new four-door hatchback model to join the coupe and sedan this year, with a sportier Civic Si model making more than 200 hp.
Honda Civic Standard Equipment
The 2017 Honda Civic is offered in an array of trims that range from LX on the low end to Touring variants at the top of the basic range as well as the enthusiast-oriented Si and Type R halo models. The least expensive Civic LX sedan includes automatic climate control, rearview camera, folding rear seat, and a 4-speaker AM/FM audio system with USB port, Bluetooth connectivity and 5-inch screen. We think most buyers will prefer stepping up to at least an EX model, which includes an automatic transmission (optional on LX models), remote engine start, moonroof, 60/40-split folding rear seat and upgraded infotainment system with a 7-inch touch screen that is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible.
Optional Honda Equipment
Climbing to the Civic EX-T in the sedan or coupe, or any Civic hatchback, brings the smaller but more powerful turbocharged engine as standard. Other features vary with trim level, including leather interior, heated front and rear seats, navigation system, Honda’s LaneWatch camera-based blind-spot monitoring system, power driver’s seat, and dual-zone automatic climate control. One package we recommend for any Civic (as long as it has the required automatic transmission) is the Honda Sensing system. This suite of active safety features and driving aids described in “Favorite Things” is well worth the extra $1,000.
