If you want an affordable coupe, definitely consider this one! While it's simple in a classic sort of way, it's still stylish. Other aesthetic additions like rims, etc. make it pop even more. The ride is also pretty smooth and the interior is nicely designed.
EX-L model; I enjoy the amenities and love the sunroof. A little more than I wanted to pay but worth it. Can't believe with everything it does have that it does not have a compass! I miss that from my old car. And with everything electronic now, the radio doesn't show the name of the song playing on the radio? This is odd to me. The gas mileage highway is around 28 instead of the 39 it is rated. Bummer since that was the reason for me purchasing this car.
Having done commuting and long road trips I can say without absolute confidence that I love this car. My 2012 Honda Civic EX-L is fuel efficient, sporty, has enough power to get off an exit ramp or into traffic. It has enough storage to fit enough luggage for a beach or camping trip. The stereo sounds great. I'm 6'1" and I have no issues with legroom. My son hasn't complained once about comfort in the back seat while on those long car rides.
