Like previous models, which have long enjoyed an enviable reputation among fans of dependable vehicles, the 2021 Honda Civic remains a top-seller.
Once considered a basic means of transportation, especially for young drivers looking for speed and hoping to impress their buddies, the humble Honda Civic has become a desirable compact car that’s a lot of fun to drive.
It’s not for nothing that it provides stiff competition for its closest rivals, including the Mazda 3 Turbo, the Volkswagen Golf, the Toyota Corolla SE and even the Hyundai Ioniq. In fact, it often succeeds in achieving best-in-class rankings across multiple categories. Nothing can keep up with this classic ride, which offers not only power, but all the safety you could ask for when setting out on adventure after adventure.
Having achieved solid crash test results, the Civic is a great choice for those who make safety a priority. Every 2021 Honda Civic also avails of a multitude of driver assist features, notably Auto High-Beam Headlights and a Forward Collision Warning system. The automaker brings these features together in the Honda Sensing suite of technologies. The principal safety features include the Collision Mitigation Braking System, Adaptive Cruise Control and the Lane Keeping Assist System.
Great options to keep in mind when the time comes to purchase a vehicle that will be used by the family for all of their travels aimed at making the most out of life.
According to consumers, one of their preferred versions of the 2021 Honda Civic is the Sport sedan. Not only does it come standard with a manual transmission, but it’s also more spacious than the sedan and is optionally equipped with a version of the four-cylinder turbo engine that delivers a little over 180 horsepower.
Opting for the Sport version over the basic LX model also opens the door to a full range of equipment, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen, an 8-speaker stereo system, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and shift knob, push-button start, fog lights and a fold-down armrest for the rear seat.
Besides being sporty—both in the way it looks and the way it drives—the 2021 Honda Civic delivers plenty of power and performance.
The Civic’s four-cylinder engines are all vigorous, but the more powerful turbo version is the preferred choice of many motorists. It’s a formidable engine! During recent tests, it briskly pulled away from red lights, leaving them in the dust.
While some may prefer the light, clean action of the six-speed manual transmission over the optional continuously variable automatic transmission, the CVT is not too shabby, either. In fact, it’s one of the best on the market.
A genuine all-rounder, the Civic offers an excellent balance between comfort and driver engagement. Its smooth handling, responsive steering and athletic driving dynamics make it a pleasure to drive. The 2021 Honda Civic delivers ride quality that’s just right: not too smooth and not too rough. The agile steering, which is well-weighted and surprisingly pleasant to the touch, makes the Civic all the more enjoyable to drive.
Those looking for an even sportier vibe should consider the Sport versions, which offer steering that’s even quicker and more responsive. The brake pedal is firm with a good feel. And the brakes match the stopping power of competitors.
It’s not all about brilliant performance. It’s also important to feel good inside a vehicle. And with the 2021 Honda Civic, you will.
Practical and modern looking, the interior of the Civic is roomy and offers plenty of storage space. Even the entry model can easily hold its own. While it might not offer all of the bells and whistles available in the compact category, it offers enough of them to please the majority of small-car buyers. The interior of the sedan is the roomiest in its class. The Civic has several intelligently designed storage cubbies scattered throughout the passenger compartment. And the trunk of the sedan is the largest in its class.
Once again, when it comes to technology, Honda engineers have done their homework.
The Honda’s touchscreen interface has been vastly improved with the addition of a highly anticipated volume knob for the audio system and hard buttons for some of the functions. The top-of-the-line Touring sedan offers infotainment features—including navigation, SiriusXM radio and Apple CarPlay and Android connectivity—through a 7-inch touchscreen. The front passenger compartment of the 2021 Honda Civic is equipped with two USB ports and a 12-volt outlet.
Finally, when it comes to gasoline consumption, the 2021 Honda Civic is a highly fuel-efficient car, just as previous years’ models of the Civic have always been. Trips to the pump will never set you back too much, and you’ll always have the assurance of knowing that you can go hundreds of kilometers on a single tank.
