Typical classic Honda in every aspect! I feel like I got a much more expensive car! It's peppy & nimble, sips fuel, has above average for the class interior materials/quality, loads of tech, and excellent visibility even with the sleek styling. One of the most standout features for me personally is the Brake Hold that holds the brake and relieves your foot. Much appreciated in heavy LA traffic! Also love Apple Carplay that allows me to bring up phone functions like navigation from my iPhone. No need to pay extra for factory or aftermarket units! The only con is the small trunk opening that has me being more careful loading bulky items. Rear seats do split and fold for more space!
Love the looks, feel of the car. Gas mileage is superb especially in ECO mode. Nice car to drive, very sooth and excellerates well

The Honda Civic is one of Honda's most popular vehicles, and it has been in production since the early 1970s. Today, it is in its 10th generation of production, making it one of the longest continuously produced vehicles in the world. In fact, since the first Honda Civic debuted in 1972, Honda has released a new model every year for nearly 45 years - though the design of the vehicle itself has evolved greatly since its first generation, most notably shifting from a subcompact car to a compact car in 2000. The 2016 Honda Civic debuted as the first of the 10th generation, appealing to budget buyers.
The 2016 Honda Civic is available in both sedan and coupe versions, with each version offering five different trim levels. This model year also had a number of significant changes in the vehicle's design when compared to the previous ninth generation, which didn't fare very well against its competitors. Specifically, some of the new features on the 2016 Civic included:
One of the more common complaints about older model years of the Honda Civic was the surprising lack of handling, sharpness, and traction on the road. This has certainly been addressed in the 2016 Civic, and significant improvements are obvious. The car has much less noise, and the overall ride on both highway and city streets is more comfortable than ever before. The acceleration does lack some, especially in the base 2.0-liter engine, but for most drivers, the performance won't be an issue.
With original MSRPs for the 2016 Honda Civic ranging anywhere from $19,475 to $27,335, this little vehicle packs quite the punch for its relatively low asking price, making it one of the best values on the market. And while you won't find many used 2016 Civics for sale just yet, the ones that have gone on the market have typically been around $15,000 with a decent trim package and add-ons, making this a great price for most budget-conscious buyers. When compared to competitors such as the Ford Focus, Dodge Dart, and Hyundai Elantra, this is certainly one of the best values on the market.
The overall design of the 2016 Civic essentially saw a complete overhaul for this model year. From an exterior standpoint, the 2016 Civic changed in a number of ways, such as:
In terms of the vehicle's performance, fuel economy is where the Civic really continues to shine. The EPA-estimated fuel rating stands at 31 mpg combined, with 27 in the city, and an impressive 38 mpg highway, with the optional manual transmission. Fuel economy gets even more impressive with the CVT trims, which get 34 mpg combined, 30 in the city, and 40 on the highway.
Under the hood, the standard engine on the 2016 Civic is a basic four-cylinder. However, this can vary from one trim level to the next. For example, both the EX and LX trims are equipped with continuously variable transmission (CVT) technology to help save fuel. On vehicles with this technology, the standard is a 2.0-liter engine at 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque.
Those who want a little more power will want to opt for either the EX-T, EX-L, or Touring trims, which come with a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine at 174 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque that can propel from zero to 60 mph in under seven seconds. Not bad for a compact car. Surprisingly enough, the turbocharged engine tends to get the best fuel economy out of all the options available, giving you another excuse to upgrade (if you needed one).
Both the coupe and sedan styles of the 2016 Honda Civic boast a sporty, sleek look that past model years have lacked. As a result, the Civic is now on trend with some of its other sporty competitors such as the Ford Focus and the now-discontinued Dodge Dart. In terms of interior features, the Civic boasts more leg room than past model years due to its slightly larger size. Additional features include:
Drivers have noted, however, that the lack of driver's seat lumbar support as an option is disappointing. Still, many are surprised by the amount of space and legroom available in this compact car, noting that even passengers of taller stature could ride comfortably for hours in back.
