Interior and Exterior

The Civic has a smooth and aerodynamic exterior design. It's sportier in appearance than many of its compact car competitors, especially in the high-performance Type R version. The interior is similarly upscale with a fun balance of elegant and sporty elements, especially in the design of the seating. It also has a good amount of interior space, allowing passengers in the back room to get comfortable. That means it has plenty of cargo space as well. The materials are high-end and soft-- you won't find cheap plastic paneling or blocky design elements here.


The Civic has three engines in its lineup. The base is a V4 that gets 159 horsepower. That is a good amount of power for a compact car, but the upgrade engine provides a more fun and dynamic experience. That upgrade is a turbocharged V4 that gets either 180 or 200 horsepower. It's faster from a dead start and quicker to reach highway speeds for mergers and overtakes. The top engine is reserved for the special Type R trim. It's also a turbo V4, and it gets 315 horsepower. It makes the Civic into a speedy track dominator that has set records around the world.
