After test driving many of its competitors, I found the Civic SI to be the highest overall quality. It isn't one of those cars that does any particular thing better than another, but it was the one I drove that I found did everything incredibly well. Comfort and driveability is on par for modern Honda, which means it typically "feels" like a higher-cost car. Acceleration is terrific and the exhaust note is outstanding, particularly over 4k (and I also own an S2000!). Distance driving is passable, but I'm considering swapping to a 16 or 17 inch wheel. It's a bit rough on segmented highways, but everything else is just fine. The interior is MUCH better quality than the competition, Ford should definitely be taking notes!
It runs smooth and is great on gas. All the features are great as well.
I bought this car with 6,000 miles on it. I drive ~ 80 miles per day to get to and from work. So far I have had zero issues with the car. Drives well; very reliable; and easy to get 34 overall mpg. Entertainment innerface is easy to use and the touchscreen is reliable. The Bluetooth was not compatible with the iPhone 6 Plus for the first month I owned the car but started working after an iPhone update.
Since 1972, the Honda Civic has been one of the most popular and best-selling vehicles in the world. Originally designed to follow Honda's N600 and Z600 models, the Civic entered the market upon its initial production in the subcompact car category. However, as production spanned generations of the vehicle, it was eventually made to be larger and more upscale. Since the 2000 model year, the Civic has been classified as a compact car. The Civic is currently in its 10th generation, which began with the 2016 model year.
The 2015 Honda Civic, specifically, was the final model year in the vehicle's ninth generation, which began in 2011.
The 2015 Civic is available in both coupe and sedan models and offers a variety of powertrains, which we'll cover later. Following are some specifics about the 2015 Civic:
Though early ninth-generation Civics were loud and bumpy, the revamped rear suspension has helped subsequent models - including the 2015 version - drive much more smoothly, regardless of the road traveled. While acceleration isn't tremendous, it is suitable for normal, everyday driving, and sound deadening is improved from previous models so drivers hear less of the outside noise when behind the wheel.
While used pricing depends on the mileage and condition of the vehicle, the 2015 Honda Civic holds its value fairly well. Most base models with low mileage are valued at around $10,000, a price point that is competitive with its segment challengers, such as the Ford Focus, Chevy Cruze, and Hyundai Elantra.
The design builds on the precedent set in the model's eighth generation, with an overall goal to make it more aerodynamic and sleek in looks. In terms of performance, the car is on par with what is expected from a compact.
Under the hood, the base engine is a 1.8L four-cylinder, capable of generating 143 hp. On Si models, the Civic engine gets a minor upgrade to a 2.4L four-cylinder that can generate up to 205 hp. As we mentioned in the opening, the 2015 Civic is also offered in natural gas and hybrid. The former comes with a 1.8L four-cylinder engine under the hood, while the latter is equipped with a 1.5L four-cylinder that generates up to 110 hp.
In terms of transmission, base models are equipped with either a five-speed manual or continuously variable transmission (CVT). Six-speed manual transmissions are offered on Civic Si models.
Some interesting styling tidbits worth noting on the 2015 Civic include door handles and side mirrors that blend into the body of the vehicle. Fog lights are also offered as an option.
As far as the interior, the 2015 Civic offers features such as:
