2016 Honda Civic coupe: Sportier design, longer wheelbase

The tenth generation Honda Civic coupe has made its debut in Los Angeles, and its doesn’t look much different to the concept car from the New York show.

The coupe is shorter than the ninth generation car, but has a much longer wheelbase, leading to an extra 5 inches (127mm) of rear seat legroom and an extra 8.4 cu-ft (238L) of interior volume.

Base models use a 2-liter 4-cylinder with 158hp (118kW) and 138 lb-ft (187Nm), with either a 6-speed manual or CVT. Mileage is rated at 31mpg (7.6L/100km) city, 41mpg (5.7L/100km) highway, and 35mpg (6.7L/100km) combined.

High spec models are powered by a 1.5-liter direct injection turbocharged 4-cylinder with 174hp (130kW) and 162 lb-ft (220Nm). Fuel economy is said to be 31mpg (7.6L/100km), 42mpg (5.6L/100km), and 35mpg (6.7L/100km) combined.

The interior of the Civic coupe has soft touch finishes and a new design shared with the sedan. Higher trim levels have a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system running Android, and that’s compatible smartphone streaming apps, Android, and Apple CarPlay.
