The Honda Civic offers drivers up to six unique trim levels including three hatchback and one coupe model. The standard LX trim level is equipped with a nimble 4-cylinder engine that produces 158 horsepower, while higher trims like the Touring provide a turbocharged engine that produces 174 horsepower.

This high-level of power is seamlessly controlled via an 8-speed automatic, while the Civic employs a continuously variable transmission for greater fuel economy.
