Honda Motors launched yesterday their most daring Civic Sedan ever in the American market, boasting the sportiest design the family sedan has ever known. The 2016 Honda Civic Sedan Touring is inspired by the design of high-performance Si and Type-R models.
The 10th generation Civic comes with an ambitious new look, the highlights of which include sleek and swept-back bodylines, a sharp and aggressive face and bulging wheel arches plus LED headlights. It looks great for a mid-range, affordable sedan and is future-proof enough to still look fresh five or six years from now. That’s a good thing, because Hondas tend to last a long time.
2016 Honda Civic Sedan Touring launches with two engines include a 2.0-liter, 16-valve, DOHC i-VTEC which can be had, depending on the trim level, with either a 6-speed manual or a CVT (continuously variable transmission), and a 1.5-liter, direct-injected and turbocharged 16-valve DOHC inline-4 which comes exclusively with a CVT and does 40 mpg.
In terms of features and equipment, the magnificently-built sedan does not disappoint. The standard kit on the 2-16 Civic Sedan includes automatic climate control – dual-zone on EX-L and higher trims; auto-up/down front power windows; an electronic parking brake with Brake Hold; Walk-Away auto door locks and an adjustable driver’s seat thigh support with 14 degrees of tilt (EX-L and above).
