The Honda Civic is one of the top-selling vehicles on the market. Its enduring popularity for four decades is a testament to its outstanding quality and reliability. With the most recent redesign in 2016, the 2018 Honda Civic sees no major changes for the new model year. Read on to determine whether the base LX or mid-range EX trim is right for you.

Class-leading Fuel Economy

The 2018 Honda Civic boasts some of the highest fuel economy estimates in the compact car class. Both the LX and the EX are equipped with a 158-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and can be upgraded to a 174-horsepower, turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine. The six-speed manual transmission is standard, or you can opt for the automatic-operating continuously variable transmission (CVT). With the standard powertrain, you'll earn an EPA-estimated 28 city/40 highway* miles per gallon; to optimize your value at the pump, opt for the turbo engine with the CVT for 32/42 city highway mpg*. Fans of the Civic also praise its sharp, agile handling and quick acceleration.


One of the most impressive attributes of the 2018 Honda Civic is the generous tech features they provide at every trim level. On the base model, you'll find a five-inch LCD screen with both Bluetooth and a USB port. It also includes a rearview camera, remote entry, power locks and windows, automatic climate control, and cruise control. If you upgrade to the EX, you'll enjoy a seven-inch touchscreen with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality; it's also integrated with the HondaLink infotainment system and both satellite and HD radio. Added convenience features include heated side mirrors, a second USB port, and remote start.


In the event of an accident, the LX and EX trims come standard with an Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure. Honda designed this structure to evenly distribute collision energy to keep passengers safe, as well as other vehicles involved during impact. For additional safety features, buyers can also opt to add the Honda Sensing package of driver assistance technology. This safety feature includes lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and more.
