Are you looking for a new compact car that’ll give you an efficient, agile ride? If so, the 2018 Honda Civic Coupe is probably one of the models on your shortlist. It’s a great car—but is it the right choice for you?

Our team at Schaller Honda in New Britain wants to help you answer that question. We’ve compiled this review of the 2018 Honda Civic Coupe to give car shoppers near Middletown a clearer picture of its performance and features, so you can decide if it meets your driving needs.

Honda Civic Coupe: Interior and Exterior

The Honda Civic Coupe’s long wheelbase (106.3”) and two-door design give it a sleek and fluid feel. With the sharp, angular C-shaped LED taillights that extend across the full rear deck lid, this car is built to look sporty and turn heads.

Most coupes are, by definition, smaller in the interior than their sedan counterparts, but the Civic Coupe economizes its space well. Front head- and legroom measure 38.2” and 42.3”, respectively, and the rear dimensions come it at 34.6” and 35.9”. The rear legroom is good for a coupe and will help keep the kids comfortable during long rides.

Performance Specs

The 2018 Civic Coupe’s base 4-cylinder engine produces 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque that’ll get you up to speed without a hitch. The available turbocharged 4-cylinder gives a boost to acceleration. And you can choose CVT over a 6-speed manual transmission if you prefer to drive automatic, without losing efficiency.

The Civic Coupe gets an EPA-estimated 28 city/39 highway MPG1 for an economical ride that’ll have you stopping to refuel far less often, especially as you’re commuting from Middletown to Hartford every day.

Safety Features

Like many Honda vehicles, the 2018 Civic Coupe uses Honda Sensing®, a suite of active safety and driver-assist technologies, to help keep you safe and extend your vision and control on the road. These include lane- and road-departure assist systems, which will warn you and adjust steering if you start drifting out of your lane or off the road without signaling.

The Civic Coupe’s Adaptive Cruise Control will help you maintain a set following distance on the highway, so you won’t have to manually change your speed to match the traffic around you. A Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) will spot oncoming front-end collisions before they happen, and help apply the brakes to avoid an accident.
