2014 Honda Civic – It’s Popular for a Reason

''Whether it is the 2014 Honda Civic sedan that has a starting price of $15,690, the base coupe model that sells from $18,895, or the civic hybrid with an entry price of $27,045 (all MSRP), all vehicles are worth considering.''

When considering its excellent resale value, reliability, safety and comfort, the 2014 Honda Civic is a real temptation. It offers a wide variety of powertrains, a composed ride, and good fuel economy, along with a choice of body styles, a more performance-oriented model, and a Hybrid version.   

Whether it is the 2014 Honda Civic sedan that has a starting price of $15,690, the base coupe model that sells from $18,895, or the civic hybrid with an entry price of $27,045 (all MSRP), all vehicles are worth considering. It would seem that Canucks are well aware of this too, as the Honda Civic is Canada’s best-selling car, and has been for 16 years. This is likely due in part to the automaker’s ability to provide a reliable, quality and durable vehicle for its customers. 

The new Civic is more refined than its predecessor. Coupes were slightly restyled for 2014, and now appear to have a sportier overall look. The Civic also received quite a few upgrades, such as replacing the previous automatic with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), and the addition of a larger touchscreen display, and a blind spot camera system, among others. 

When referring to the 2014 Honda Civic sedan in particular, the vehicle is equipped with either a 1.8-litre 4-cylinder engine that comes standard on the DX to Touring models, or a more powerful 2.4-litre 4-cylinder engine as found on the more performance-oriented Si trim. 

The 1.8-litre version produces a total output of 143 horsepower and 129 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired to a 5-speed manual transmission that is standard on the DX, LX and EX trims, and the new CVT is standard on the Touring model (and available on the LX and EX). The new CVT is quite impressive too, in that it will promptly downshift when you need to accelerate to past another vehicle, for example. 

The 2014 Civic will provide buyers with precise steering and stable handling, and a comfortable and composed ride. Cabin quietness is another aspect that has improved over previous generations, especially when on the highway.

In terms of fuel economy, owners of the new compact car can anticipate a combined rating (city/highway) of 6.0 liters per 100 kilometers when equipped with the CVT. With the manual, buyers can expect a rating of 7.3 and 5.5 L/100km when driving in the city and on the highway respectively. 

If safety is a concern, consumers need only glance at the Civic’s crash test scores. The 2014 Civic has garnered the TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the IIHS, and the top 5-star overall rating from the NHTSA. We would suggest taking a look at Honda’s emergency response system and the new LaneWatch blind spot monitoring display, which can help drivers to avoid potential accidents. 

Other features worth considering include a navigation system, rearview camera, push start button, heated front seats, and leather-trimmed seating surfaces, which are available depending on the trim, along with a list of other elements and entertainment features. 

The 2014 Honda Civic offers a range of improvements, in addition to the usual ingredients one can expect from the automaker: safety, reliability and comfort. Great resale value also adds to the package, and overall the all-new Civic is a vehicle that deserves your consideration.
