Honda Civic 2021: The beginnings of power-driven fun

Honda Civic 2021: The beginnings of power-driven fun

Is Honda Civic A Good Car?

The Honda CIVIC does make you feel on cloud 9 with the driving dynamics it offers to the driver. The build of this car hasn’t been made with the sacrifices, like other car companies do, sacrificing engine for the MPG ratings, inner spacing for a large room, but with the talk of CIVIC, we have seen a subtle uplift Honda has made to the entire car.

The comfort isn’t sacrificed, the drive still sets you on butter, the acceleration lends you punches of power under the feet, and the fuel-sipping has got reduced no matter which engine you choose.

You yearn for space, and you get one, the two layouts offered are sedan and hatchback expressing great cargo room and trunk spacing but the infotainment of the Honda doesn’t have a good take and is found as tricky and less user friendly.

Civic’s Performance And Engine Displacements

Just like the different subtle flavours of ice-cream, the drivers get a wide range of engines to have fun with. A 158 horsepower 2.0 litre 4 cylinder engine is what you get with the sedan LX and Sport trims, but the baser ones only.

A 1.5 litre 4 cylinder engine turbocharged with 174 of horsepower comes as standard in Honda Civic sedan EX L, EX and the other touring trims. That very engine comes as standard with the Civic LX and the EX hatchback too.

A somewhat of 180 horsepower is what the engine of Civic sport trims and the Hatchback sport trim is drilled with. The turbocharged 2.0 litre 4 cylinder engine is poured in the Type R which is the performance variant and comes with a 306 of horsepower in it. Most models sprint on a CVT platform but there is an option of 6-speed manual transmission too.

Safety Features Of Civic

There is nothing like that the NHTSA or the Highway Safety standards has done with the ratings emblazoned to the CIVIC, but the 2021 CIVIC has got the same number of ratings it got for 2020, and those were five out of five while the IIHS has entitled the car with as Good in all the crash tests it went through.
