Civic Sedan shoppers can choose from the LX, Sport, EX, and Touring. The LX and Sport get the base powerplant, a 158-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, while the EX and Touring advance to a 180-horsepower turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder. All trims have a front-wheel drivetrain and a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
Fuel economy varies by trim level. The official EPA estimations for the LX are 31 mpg in city driving and 40 mpg on the highway, while the Sport is rated for 30 city/37 highway. The more potent engine translates into 33 mpg around town and 42 mpg on the open road for the EX and 31 city/38 highway for the equipment-packed Touring.
The equipment roster for the LX includes automatic climate control, LED exterior lighting with automatic headlights, a tilt/telescopic steering column, an adjustable driver’s seat with height controls, a 7-inch driver information display, power side mirrors, a fold-down rear seatback, and 16-inch steel wheels with covers. The Sport adds conveniences (proximity keyless entry and push-button start) and stylish touches (a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, sport pedals, chrome exhaust finishers, and 18-inch alloy wheels).
Honda graces the Civic Sedan EX with a power moonroof, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 60/40-split folding rear seat, a rear-seat center armrest, heated power side mirrors, variable intermittent windshield wipers, and 17-inch alloy wheels. The Touring takes the Civic Sedan to king-of-the-hill status with leather upholstery, an eight-way power driver’s seat, a four-way power front passenger seat, a 10.2-inch driver information display, fog lights, heated power side mirrors with integrated turn signals, rain-sensing variable intermittent windshield wipers, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
All 2024 Civic Sedans have Honda Sensing, a suite of advanced driver aids encompassing adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, collision mitigation, road departure mitigation, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, traffic jam assist, and traffic sign recognition. The EX and Touring also get blind-spot monitoring, while the Touring alone is upgraded with a cross-traffic monitor. All trims have a complete set of airbags, automatic high beams, anti-lock brakes, vehicle stability control, traction control, a rear-seat reminder, and a multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines.
The first three trims receive a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen system, while the Touring advances to a 10.2-inch version. The standard components are Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration (wireless in the Touring), Bluetooth, a text messaging assistant, and access to HondaLink remote services. While the LX gets a four-speaker sound system, the Sport and EX move up to an eight-speaker arrangement. The Touring trim gets some significant infotainment upgrades with navigation, a Bose 12-speaker sound system, SiriusXM satellite radio, wireless device charging, and two USB ports in the back row. The LX and Sport have a single USB port, but the EX and Touring get a second one in the front row.
