It is hard to come up with only 10 reasons why you should be driving the new 2016 Honda Civic, but we narrowed it down and have listed 10 reasons why we think that the Honda Civic should top your list when shopping for a new car. Of course, if you are in the Greenville, North Carolina, area, then the best place to buy a new Honda Civic is at Barbour Hendrick Honda.
Reason #1: Price
With a starting price of just $18,640*, the 2016 Honda Civic is definitely a great buy for drivers looking for a sedan. Of course, you can opt for a more expensive trim package, but the base model still comes packed with amazing features such as: Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines, Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®2 and Streaming Audio, and LED Daytime Running Lights.
Reason #2: Spacious
This newly designed 2016 model features over three cubic feet more cargo space than previous models including three more inches in the backseat. This is particularly handy when hauling children to basketball, tennis or ballet lessons. The total passenger Volume for the base LX model is 97.8 cu ft, and the Cargo Volume is 15.1 cu ft. This gives owners more space than they might expect from a sedan.
Reason #3: Gas Milage
The Continuously Variable Transmission (M-CVT) helps drivers to get 31 MPG in the city, 41 MPG on the Highway, with a 35 MPG**. This helps your wallet when driving around Greenville, or even when setting out for a long road trip with your friends.
Reason #4: New Engine
While there are a few engine options to choose from for the new 2016 Honda Civic, this model is the first to get the new turbocharged four-cylinder engine offering drivers faster acceleration. The 2016 Honda Civic EX-T and above models feature a 1.5-liter, turbocharged engine for high cruise efficiency and robust performance.
Reason #5: Enjoy Your Playlist
The Honda Civic comes with Apple CarPlay*** and Android Auto so you can integrate your playlist right into the car. Not all models come standard with Apple Car Play, but that doesn’t mean you will be missing out on tech features. Standard on all models you will get: MP3 / Windows Media®14 Audio (WMA) Playback Capability, Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink, Bluetooth® Streaming Audio, Radio Data System (RDS), and Speed-Sensitive Volume Control (SVC). These features will keep you connected when you are driving around town in your new Civic.
Reason #6: Climate Control
Automatic climate control allows everyone to stay comfortable rather you are experiencing the 30-degree lows of January or the 85-degree highs of summer.
Reason #7: Safety
While the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has always given great safety ratings to this car, the newest model includes more safety features including automatic pre-collision braking, lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control. Honda holds the exclusive design of the ACE (Advanced Compatibility Engineering) Body structure, that enhances the occupant protection during collisions. This is a safety feature for all Honda Vehicles, so even if the Civic isn’t your top choice, Honda has a safe car to fit your needs!
Reason #8: Quiet
One of the complaints that Greenville drivers have had in the past about the Civic is it is noisy. That’s no longer the case because designers have included triple-sealed doors and acoustic windshield glass.
Reason #9: Options Galore
This is the first time that Honda has released a four-door hatchback Honda Civic. Drivers can also choose Civic coupe along with the family sedan. There are a dozen configurations to choose from when picking out your new Civic.
Reason #10: Great Dealership
