2017 Honda Civic


Oct 3, 2016 - TORRANCE, Calif.
◾Six-speed manual transmission joins the turbocharged Civic lineup, now standard on Sedan and Coupe EX-T trims
◾Civic is the best-selling compact car of 2016 wîth sales up 15.4% through August

Arriving in showrooms starting tomorrow, the Civic Sedan and Civic Coupe aim to retain their position as members of the best-selling compact car nameplate in America wîth the expanded application of manual transmissions for the 2017 model year. Building on the fun-to-drive character of the 10th-generation Civic lineup, the 2017 Civic offers customers more choice wîth a 6-speed manual transmission as standard equipment on the turbocharged Civic Sedan and Coupe in EX-T trims. The 2017 Honda Civic starts at a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $18,7401 for the Sedan and $19,1501 for the Coupe.

For 2017, the Honda Civic Sedan and Coupe EX-T now feature the sporty and engaging six-speed manual transmission paired wîth a 1.5-liter direct-injected and turbocharged DOHC engine producing a peak 174 hp and 167 lb.-ft. of torque2 – up 5 lb.-ft. compared to models equipped wîth the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). The CVT remains optional on turbocharged EX-T trims, while standard on EX-L and Touring. Civic EX Sedans also now add HD Radio™ and XM Satellite Radio®.

'This has been a tremendous year for Civic, starting wîth the Sedan and Coupe setting sales records and leading the compact §egmènt,' said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division. 'For 2017, we're thrilled to boost the Civic lineup by pairing the manual transmission wîth the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine – something we know our customers are very excited about.'

Since the introduction of the 10th-generation last year, Civic has received numerous awards and accolades, including the 2016 North American Car of the Year for the Civic Sedan, and has earned the highest-available collision performance safety ratings from both NHTSA and IIHS wîth the addition of Honda Sensing™. The Civic has led the compact car §egmènt in sales for nine of the past ten months and has been the most popular car in America wîth under 35 year olds in each of the past six years, wîth the exception of 2014, when Honda Accord was #13. Late last month, Honda added a sporty new Civic Hatchback variant to the lineup, wîth Civic Si and a radical new Civic Type-R joining next year.

High quality, soft-to-the-touch materials are applied liberally—to the instrument panel, front door sash and door inserts and the large thickly padded center armrest. Fit, finish and materials quality throughout the Civic's cabin have been thoroughly modernized and upgraded in keeping wîth the more premium and sporty character.

Both the Civic Sedan and Coupe benefit from the largest cabin in the compact §egmènt. In front, ultra-thin front roof pillars enable class-leading forward visibility.

Safety and Driver Assistive Features
The 2017 Civic is designed to provide a high level of collision safety performance in a wide variety of collision scenarios, including offset and oblique-angle frontal collisions as well as side and rear impacts. The 2017 Civic utilizes its next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ body structure (ACE™) plus crash stroke technology and a 590MPa high-strength steel floor to provide a high degree of occupant protection while minimizing weight and aiding fuel efficiency.

Standard on the Civic Sedan and Coupe Touring trims and available on all Sedan trims, Honda Sensing™ safety and driver-assistive technology can further reduce the potential for a collision and mitigate the consequences, alerting the driver and taking emergency action when a collision is determined to be imminent.
