3/4 Front Glamour 2015 Honda Civic

Find Great Deals in Your Area

, Automotive Editor -

After a serious misstep with its 2012 redesign, the Honda Civic has charged back to the top of shopping lists with its traditional mix of economy, quality and strong resale value.

What's New for 2015

Following recent model overhauls -- a major 2013 refresh of a 2012 redesign -- the Civic carries over with almost no changes. The only new item is the addition of an SE trim level to the sedan lineup.

Choosing Your 2015 Honda Civic

The Civic comes with two or four doors and a variety of engines. In fact, it can be customized for a wide variety of customers, from young people who want a high-revving sports coupe to families looking for a reliable sedan to environmentalists trying to limit their use of natural resources.

Honda offers few options, and the trim level you choose will largely determine how your Civic is equipped:

LX

The base LX is available as a coupe or sedan and comes with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder that delivers 143 horsepower and 129 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is standard, but an automated continuously variable transmission (CVT) is available. Expect fairly basic specifications: air conditioning, a five-inch LCD screen, power windows and door locks, cruise control, a tilt and telescoping steering wheel, a 160-watt audio system with four speakers, and Bluetooth connectivity with streaming audio. The LX is priced from $18,290 for the coupe and $18,490 for the sedan.

SE

Available only as a sedan, the $19,990 SE adds a handful of premium features that won't break the bank. These include a CVT, rear disc brakes, 15-inch alloy wheels, a rearview camera, automatic climate control, a blind-spot camera, a six-speaker audio system with 160 watts, a seven-inch display, and Honda Link Next Generation.

EX

A nice mid-range model, the EX balances pricing and features. In the coupe, the EX starts at $20,390 and is available with a five-speed manual transmission, whereas the sedan is only available with a CVT and starts at $21,190. Building on the LX, buyers get rear disc brakes, 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic climate control, a blind-spot camera, push-button start, a 360-watt audio system with seven speakers, a seven-inch display, HondaLink Next Generation, a rearview camera, a moonroof, Smart Entry and automatic headlights.

EX-L

The "L" in EX-L is for the leather-wrapped steering wheel and the leather-trimmed seats in this trim level, but other extras include 17-inch alloy wheels, an eight-way power driver seat, heated front seats, and fog lights. Additionally, this is the lowest trim level that makes navigation available as part of an optional package that includes satellite radio and a multiview rear camera. Base prices range from $22,640 for the a coupe to $24,140 for a sedan with navigation.

HF

The HF is designed to enhance fuel economy -- up to 41 mpg highway -- with a deck-lid spoiler, exclusive aerodynamic alloy wheels, and low-rolling-resistance tires. On top of the fuel-saving goodies, the HF also includes air conditioning, Bluetooth hands-free, power windows and door locks, cruise control, a 160-watt audio system with four speakers, and a rearview camera. This model checks in at $20,040.

Si

The Si is Honda's high-performance Civic with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 205 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque. You also get a close-ratio six-speed transmission, a helical limited-slip differential, an enhanced suspension system, fog lights, a wing-style spoiler, a chrome exhaust tip, push-button start, and a 360-watt stereo system with seven speakers and a seven-inch display. Prices for the Si, available as a coupe or sedan, start at $22,890. The navigation package is also optional here, as is a summer tire package.

CarsDirect Tip

The EX is overall the best deal of the Civic lineup, but if you've got to have performance, the Si is a hard deal to pass up.
