Honda Civic Trim Levels
The Honda Civic has long been a stalwart in the class of compact cars, and the 2018 Civic continues the tradition of practicality blended with a comprehensive set of features. Each trim level, from the base LX to the fully-loaded Touring, offers a different set of features to please every type of driver.
To help Civic buyers in the Bloomington, Ellettsville, and Bedford areas narrow down the correct trim level for them, our team at Andy Mohr Honda crafted this quick 2018 Honda Civic trim level review.
2018 Honda Civic LX
The base Honda Civic LX trim comes standard with a 2.0L inline 4-cylinder engine that produces 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. This highly efficient powertrain configuration will earn you an EPA-estimated 28 MPG city and 40 MPG highway. 1
With its impressive fuel economy, this efficient powertrain can help keep your gas expenses down and carbon footprint low.
Honda certainly makes safety technology a priority in the base trim, which includes a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with guidelines and the available Honda Sensing® package.
The Multi-Angle Rearview Camera allows you to see the rear of the vehicle from three different angles for greater visibility when reversing.
The available Honda Sensing® package incorporates a host of intelligent safety features, including Forward Collision Warning. This feature can help prevent frontal accidents by alerting you when you’re approaching another vehicle too fast.
The 2018 Civic EX builds on the features offered in the LX by stepping up some interior technology.
This trim receives an infotainment upgrade to a dynamic 7-inch high-resolution touchscreen with eight speakers. It incorporates Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ capabilities. These features allow you to seamlessly connect your phone to your car to make hands-free calls and receive text messages on the touchscreen display, keeping your eyes on the road.
It also comes standard with a one-touch power moonroof for better scenic views of the road. The Push Button Start and Remote Engine Start capabilities allow you to conveniently start the car with a touch of a button—whether inside of it or outside.
2018 Civic EX-T
A big draw of the Honda Civic EX-T and all trims above is the standard, more boisterous 1.5L inline 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that generates 174 horsepower and 167 lb-ft of torque.
Not only is the performance increased, but the interior comfort receives a bump. The standard Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control System and heated front seats allow for all passengers to achieve a comfortable temperature that is all their own.
The EX-L checks the interior features of the EX-T and raises it a few notches. The leather-trimmed seats, steering wheel, and shift knob create an even more luxurious experience in the cabin.
Also, adding an 8-way power driver’s seat and keen auto-dimming rearview mirror helps you comfortably see what is in front and in back of you.
Honda Civic Touring
The Touring trim is the culmination of all of the advanced technology features Honda has to offer made standard.
The Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ with Voice Recognition can take the guesswork out of navigating weekend errands by giving you voice-activated turn-by-turn directions.
The heating function for both front and rear outboard seats coupled with the premium 10-speaker audio system and subwoofer means your toasty cabin will have great sound quality.
You’ll also receive all the advanced safety features you can handle as the Honda Sensing® suite is made standard. This package includes Road Departure Mitigation and Lane Keep Assist, which can course-correct if you veer out of your lane.
