This car is for you if: You’re looking for a practical and stylish car that offers great steering feel, fuel economy and comfort. On the downside, the 5-speed CVT transmission is not loved by most of the buyers, and the car is not as sharp in its base trim with steel wheels. The Civic is powered by a 2.0L engine producing 158HP. NEW: 1.6L engine, LX trim available as of April 2017.

Commuity member insights:

"It's sexy and attractive, the features, tech, and driving experience in it are like no other. I strongly believe it should be compared to higher class cars. Fuel economy is also amazing, I live in Harissa and work in Beirut, and avg fuel consumption is 8.5L/100Km (arnd 230 bl tanke). It's been a couple of weeks driving it and I am in love with it. So if you're considering this car, go for it.

PS: There is also a higher trim in Lebanon which is the Sport trim (Type R), but for 36000$ and not much additions, I don't think it's worth the extra investment." - Christian AlMurr

Trim/Price differences: Safety systems including ABS, EBD and traction control are available on both trims. The differences are mainly in interior and exterior features.

LX 1.6L ($23,800) – Same specs as the LX 2.0L trim below, and more:

  • Fog lights
  • 16" alloy wheels
  • Leather steering wheel
  • The trade-off is the smaller engine, generating 125HP

LX 2.0L ($28,700)

  • Cloth seating
  • Keyless entry
  • Push/start
  • 5” screen
  • Remote engine starter
  • Daytime LEDs
  • Sensors
  • Cruise control
  • 2 Airbags
  • 16" steel wheels (for cars this price, you usually get alloy wheels)

EX 2.0L ($30,900) – For a $2,200 extra, you will get

  • Bigger 7” screen
  • Leather steering wheel
  • Apple CarPlay
  • 16” aluminum wheels
  • Sunroof
  • Fog lights
  • Chrome finishes
  • Rear view camera
  • LaneWatch Camera (a came that shows you your right side blind spot)
  • More airbags

We’d have chosen the LX 2.0L trim as our pick, but we’d rather pay the extra $2,200 since it will make a big difference in safety, connectivity and looks. And now that there's a 1.6L LX available for a much more affordable price, there's no question we would go for it. Yes it will be slower, but think about paying $4,900 more for 32 more HP and less options, and suddenly living with the 1.6L feels more acceptable.

Verdict: You will notice that the Civic is one of the most expensive cars compared to its competitors like the Toyota Corolla or Hyundai Elantra, costing around $8,000 more. It’s in the same price segment as a Mazda3 which is known to be very fun to drive, and the Civic this year is confident, firm and promises to offer as much, both in terms of comfort/drivability as well as a decent offering of in-car tech like the remote engine starter, Honda LaneWatch or phone connectivity. If you’re a Civic owner, let us know what you think!

What you can get instead:

  • Kia Cerato
  • Toyota Corolla
  • Hyundai Elantra
  • Chevrolet Cruze
  • Ford Focus
  • Nissan Sentra
  • Mazda3
  • Mitsubishi Lancer
