2021 Honda Civic

2021 Civic Photos
The 2021 Honda Civic is one of the top choices among small cars. It comes in two body styles: sedan and hatchback. The mainstay models can be had with two different engines and manual or automatic transmissions, while the performance-oriented Type R gets its own powertrain. Across the sprawling lineup there are some constants. The Civic is engaging to drive, deftly balancing comfort and handling — shading toward the latter in the Sport and Sport Touring trims and still more so in the Type R. No matter the model, the interior is spacious and a low cowl imparts an even greater feeling of space. The sedan’s trunk is roomy, but the hatchback is the real cargo-carrying champ.

A 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system (on all but the base LX) is now easier to interact with and also includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. All Civics come with the Honda Sensing bundle of driver assists, including forward collision warning with auto braking and pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning and lane keep assist, and adaptive cruise control. EX and higher trims add Honda’s LaneWatch feature, which can display a camera feed from the right side of the car.

This model year brings several changes to the compact’s model hierarchy. The sporty Si model is on hiatus for 2021 (with a redesign on the horizon) and the coupe body style is being discontinued in all variants. The high-performance Type R remains, and gets a new Limited Edition model that sheds a few pounds over the regular Type R and comes in an exclusive Phoenix Yellow paint finish.

2021 Civic trim levels are as follows: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L and Touring (Sport Touring for the hatchback). The racy Type R is hatchback only. LX and Sport sedans use the base 2.0-liter engine, while EX and higher trims, and all hatchbacks, get the more powerful 1.5-liter turbo. Sport and Sport Touring models have a slightly firmer suspension than the other trims, while the Type R is a blistering hot hatch — both are exclusively offered with a stick shift.

The base 2.0-liter four (158 horsepower, 138 lb-ft) is matched with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) or a six-speed stick, and its EPA combined estimates range from 29 to 33 mpg. The 1.5-liter turbo (174 horsepower, 162 lb-ft, or 180 hp, 177 lb-ft for Sport and Sport Touring hatches) is punchy and flexible. It also gets slightly better fuel economy, with EPA combined estimates running from 30 to 36 mpg. The Type R has a unique 2.0-liter VTEC turbo packing 306 horses.
