A Second Civic Joins the Family

Published on November 30 2015

“We continue on our epic 10th-generation Civic journey with the sportiest, most sophisticated and tech-savvy Civic Coupe yet.”

When the time comes for Honda to revamp its prized Civic, the automaker needs to be careful and not do anything too brash that risks offending buyers. After all, the Civic is the most popular car in Canada, and has been for 17 years now. Moreover, it has a host of fine competitors.

That’s why no one would have blamed Honda if the Japanese automaker had shown restraint when redesigning the 10th generation of the Civic. But, Honda knows that if you want to be successful, you need to give buyers more than just the bare minimum.

Honda Knows what Canadians Need

The sedan unveiled earlier this fall proves that Honda is willing to offer more to consumers. The Coupe version, introduced at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show, is the logical next step after the sedan. A hatchback version will follow shortly, as will sportier versions that include the Si that we already know, and the very powerful Type-R that we hope to get to know very soon!

“We continue on our epic 10th-generation Civic journey with the sportiest, most sophisticated and tech-savvy Civic Coupe yet,” said Dave Gardner, senior vice president of Honda Canada Inc.” I think our customers are going to be utterly surprised by what this new Coupe delivers in terms of refinement, safety, efficiency and fun-to-drive performance.”

Inside, the 2016 Honda Civic coupe offers more room for passengers, even those in the back, thanks to a wheelbase that expands to 80 mm. The car as a whole is larger also. That means that passengers in the back get 130 mm more legroom, and 238 liters more cargo room. Outside, the Civic Coupe’s front fascia is more aggressive and noticeable, just like the rear spoiler that certainly adds a touch of flare and sportiness to the Civic Coupe.

Efficient and Powerful

Underneath the hood, the Coupe will get the same engines as the sedan. That means there is a base four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine that delivers 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque, and that replaces the previous 1.8-liter engine that was offered in the 9th-gen Civic. Of course, the engine that everyone is talking about is the new 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, which will be optional and offers 174 horsepower, yet also showcases a fuel economy rating of less than 7.0 liters per 100 kilometers. The turbo comes standard with a CVT automatic transmission while the 2.0-liter engine gets a standard six-speed manual while the CVT is optional.
