Returning to its true form with a spacious and technology filled interior, daring looks, turbocharged power, satisfying handling, safety technologies, advanced infotainment system, powerful and fuel-efficient turbocharged engine is none other than the 2017 Honda Civic. Its release date should be expected anytime in the first half of 2017.
Redesign Was Necessary
There is no point in denying the fact that the previous generation of the Civic that ran for five years got some dull early reviews and controversy characteristic for Honda, which eventually led to its overhaul in the second year. Although the Civic nameplate became more competitive, it is obvious that its appeal also declined. And therefore, it no-longer retained its compelling nature anymore particularly with its rivals going forward in lightning speed.
Something Changed In The Air…
However, for Honda fans, the new 2017 Honda Civic is profoundly improved and comes with several changes that should come as a relief. Its innovative spirit has been revived by its user-friendly touchscreen interface, mature cabin, and its neat sporty exterior.
Under the hood, the base engine generates a healthy 158 horsepower and returns an exceptional fuel economy rating of 40 mpg in the highway. For those looking for more speed, there is the turbocharged mill that generates a cool 174 horsepower and 162 pounds-ft. of torque.
Similar to the best Civics of the time long past, the newest Civic offers an appealing fun-to-drive character thanks to the sporty handling. Even at speed, you can hardy hear any wind, sound of tires, or road noise, and, unlike in previous models, its ride quality is very satisfying.
Quite often, we take Civic’s “spacious interior accommodations” with a dose of skepticism, however, the 2017 model walks the talk and some consumers might actually question the need for an Accord given the Civic offers so much interior space.
Are There Any Other Trim Levels?
