The Coupe follows the sedan in its 10th generation improvements

It’s no secret that the Honda Civic has had a bit of a rough patch, with the past few generations not being received as well as expected in the public eye, with the ninth-gen being so bad, that the entire generational cycle lasted no more than four years. All of that changed when Honda showed up to the 2015 New York Auto Show with the 2015 Civic Coupe Concept – a model that previewed the upcoming tenth-gen coupe. By the time the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show kicked off, Honda was ready to show the world the production version of the tenth-gen coupe and boy did it impress. To put it simply, Honda came correct with a new aggressive exterior design, a refined and beautiful looking interior, and two new engines that are borrowed from the Civic Sedan. More important, however, is the fact that the new Civic Coupe gets that 1.5-liter, turbocharged, four-banger, making this generation the first to come with forced induction straight from the factory.

The generation evolution of the Civic Coupe couldn’t come at a better time for Honda. The competition in the compact coupe segment is spread somewhat thin, but the offerings available are stronger than ever. By the time 2017 models hit showrooms, Toyota will have an all-new Toyota 86 and Subaru the BRZ (originally the FR-S prior to the discontinuation of Scion,) and Kia will have the updated Forte Koup. If you set price and horsepower aside and focus purely on aesthetics and functionality, the new Civic could even compete with more luxurious models like the BMW 2 Series or the Mercedes C-Class Coupe in their entry-level forms.

Okay, so comparing a Civic against a Bimmer of Merc might be a little bit of a reach, but we’ll talk more about that later on. For now, let’s dive in and take a look at the new Civic and everything that it brings to the table.

The 2016 Honda Civic Coupe retains many of the awesome features we saw on the concept version. The funky grille, multi-layered rear end, and sloping roofline are all present. That grille, however, is unchanged from the Civic sedan. In fact, Honda says everything from the A-pillars forward is unchanged from the sedan. That doesn’t matter, though, as the front’s design perfect fits with the theme of the Civic Coupe.

Honda has reworked the Coupe in all the right ways. The car’s wheelbase is 2.9 inches longer, the body is 1.9 inches wider, and the front overhang is 1.4 inches shorter. The wheels have been moved to the corners, giving the car a wide footprint, which should lead to greater stability. The sloping roof is an inch lower than the Civic Sedan’s, contributing to the car’s overall, low-slung look. And despite the longer wheelbase, the Civic Coupe is actually 5.5 inches shorter than before.

The dynamic shape of the lights on the new Civic (left) not only give the rear more attitude compared to the outgoing model (right) but also help in reducing drag, thanks to the crisp lines.

The rear end styling certainly garners attention. It features C-shaped, LED taillights that stretch across the entire rear end. The dynamic shape of the lights not only give the rear more attitude but help in reducing drag, thanks to the crisp lines. A modest spoiler tops the trunk, helping with aerodynamics and styling. The LED treatment continues up front, with LED daytime running lights. LED headlights are optional as well. The headlights, regardless of lighting source, are now automatic, meaning no more worrying about turning your lights on and off. Optional rain-sensing wipers finish off the deal.

The sloping roofline is similar to that of the Toyota 86 and BRZ Twins (bottom left) while front and rear profile of the new Civic (bottom) are sportier and more aggressive than most of the competition, including the Kia Forte Koup. (sedan shown above, bottom right)

Compared to the competition, The new Civic Coupe features styling that is similar to other two-doors in this segment. The sloping roofline is similar to that of the Toyota 86 and BRZ Twins while front and rear profile of the Civic are sportier and more aggressive than any of the competition, including the Kia Forte Koup. So, if you’re hunting this segment for something that looks sporty and dominating, the Civic is the best way to go. If you prefer to go with a milder, neutral look, then the Kia Forte Koup might be exactly what you’re looking for. But, there’s more to picking a car than looks alone, so let’s take a look at the inside of the new Civic and see how it stacks up.

Interior

The familiar blue hue emanates from the cluster, matching the blue color coming from the center-mounted, seven-inch infotainment screen that fully supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

The interior has certainly undergone a massive transformation. Gone is the two-tiered dashboard with multiple screens placed haphazardly around the driver. The 2016 Civic Coupe borrows its dash from its four-door brother, and in doing so, becomes far more grown up without losing its fun factor. Clean lines, well-placed screens and gauges, and stylish cues bring the interior into modern days.

The Civic Coupe still uses digital gauges, but in a better way. EX and higher trims use a center-mounted TFT screen that digitally shows engine and ground speed via an analog-style tachometer and a fully digital speedometer. The familiar blue hue emanates from the cluster, matching the blue color coming from the center-mounted, seven-inch infotainment screen that fully supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, runs the Pandora app, and has SiriusXM and HD Radio. Upper trim levels now come with navigation. In comparison, the BRZ/86 twins and the Kia Forte all offer comparable technology and features.

Clean lines, well-placed screens and gauges, and stylish cues bring the interior into modern days.

Other notable features include an electronic parking brake with an electronic Brake Hold function that assists in hill starts. EX and higher trims have leather door panel inserts with real stitching; the cabin is lit by an overhead LED lamp, and the shifter sports a leather boot.

Of course, that’s only the beginning of the story. The interior has grown, offering an additional 8.4 cubic feet of passenger room, while the longer wheelbase helps add more than five inches of rear seat legroom. Total passenger room for the civic is now 91.0 cubic feet, just 1.3 cubic-feet shy of the passenger room found in the Forte Koup and a shocking 14.5 cubic-feet more than the Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ. For the most part, all interior dimensions of the Civic run very close to that of the Forte, while they beat out the 86 and BRZ in every category except second-row headroom where the twins offer 0.4 inches more.

Drivetrain

Matching the new bodywork and interior are two all-new engines for the Civic Coupe. Both are borrowed from the Civic Sedan and kick out the same horsepower and torque specs. Base Civics receive a 2.0-liter DOHC i-VTEC four-cylinder that makes 158 horsepower and 138 pound-feet of torque. That’s a marked improvement of 15 horses and nine pound-feet over the outgoing 1.8-liter. The engine can be had with either a CVT or six-speed manual transmission. Like the previous generations, the manual is relegated to the lowest LX trim.

The 1.5-liter turbo does not come with Honda’ VTEC valvetrain system, but still kicks out an impressive 174 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque thanks to the single-scroll turbo’s 16.5 psi of boost.

The biggest news, however, is Honda’s premium Civic engine. The new mill is a 1.5-liter, DOHC, four-cylinder that utilizes direct fuel injection and is turbocharged. Yep, now Honda fanboys can now buy a Civic with a factory-installed turbo. The 1.5-liter turbo does not come with Honda’ VTEC valvetrain system, but still kicks out an impressive 174 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque thanks to the single-scroll turbo’s 16.5 psi of boost. That’s an improvement of 31 horsepower and 33 pound-feet over last year’s 1.8-liter. Sadly, the 1.5-liter isn’t offered with the manual transmission. However, initial reports of the updated CVT transmission say it is vastly improved over the 2015 version and offers better “shifts” when in sport mode.

Fuel economy for both engines is typical of any small Honda. The 2.0-liter is estimated to deliver 31 mpg in the city, 41 mpg on the highway, and 35 mpg combined, when mated with the CVT. Opt for the turbocharged 1.5-liter, and the numbers somehow improve by one mpg on the highway loop, meaning the turbo Civic Coupe gets 31/42/35 mpg.

Competing Performance

Performance-wise, the Civic actually gets the short end of the stick compared to the competition. In entry-level form, the Forte Koup beats it by 15 ponies and 16 pound-feet while the twins beat it out by 42 ponies and 13 pound-feet. Upper trim levels of the Civic suffer the same fate with the range-topping Forte offering 27 horsepower and 33 pound-feet more and the twins offering 31 horsepower more. The range-topping Civic does beat out the twins in the torque department by 4 pound-feet.

Honda Civic Kia Forte Koup Toyota 86 / Subaru BRZ
Driveline FWD FWD RWD
Entry Horsepower 158hp 173hp 200hp
Entry Torque (lb-ft) 138 154 151
Maximum Horsepower 174 201 205
Maximum Torque (lb-ft) 162 195 158
0 to 60 mph 6.8 seconds 8.7 seconds 6.4 Seconds

Note: the 86/BRZ twins only come with 205 horsepower and 158 pound-feet when equipped with a manual transmission.

Competing Fuel Economy

If your primary concern in purchasing your next compact coupe is fuel economy, then look no further than the Honda Civic. Honda has always been a go-to for fuel economy, and in this case, it’s clearly evident why. To put things simply, the Civic beats out the competition in fuel economy hands down pulling up to 10 mpg more in the city, 13 mpg more on the highway, and 10 mpg more combined over the competition – now that’s something to write home about. On a side note, the Civic holds nearly a gallon less, so fill-ups will be just a hair cheaper with better range. All three models run on regular, unleaded gasoline.

Model City Highway Combined Fuel Capacity
Honda Civic 1.5-liter Auto 31mpg 41mpg 35mpg 12.4 gal
Honda Civic 2.0-liter MT6 26mpg 37mpg 30mpg 12.4 gal

Safety

2016 Honda Civic Coupe High Resolution Exterior

Honda has loaded the Civic Coupe with nearly every available safety system in its parts bin. First off, the car is built using Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Structure, also known as ACE that helps redistribute an impact’s force around the passenger compartment, keeping occupants safe. Multiple airbags and seatbelts are standard equipment, as part of the Honda Sensing suite of technologies.

Though it hasn’t been tested at the time of this writing, Honda is aiming at the NCAP 5-Start Overall Vehicle rating and a Top Safety Pick+ rating for the IIHS.

What Others Are Saying

The tenth-gen Civic is a big deal for Honda as the Civic hasn’t exactly been the best-looking car on the block for a while now. And, we’re not the only ones who think so. Edmunds rates the 2016 Civic as a 4.5 out of 5 while Kelly Blue Book gives it a rating of 9.6 out of 10. Those aren’t bad scores at all.

Kelly Blue Book

Allyson Harwood, an Expert Reviewer for Kelly Blue Book, said, “The 2016 Honda Civic manages to successfully serve as a fun, sporty model that has some of the best steering, handling and driving dynamics in the segment.”

Edmunds

Edmunds also had something to say about the new Civic Coupe: “The 2016 Honda Civic has a sharpness on the road that’s been absent in recent years. Steering response is lively, and there’s notably less body roll than in the previous Civic.”

Car and Driver

Tony Swan from Car and Driver spent some time behind the wheel of the 2016 Honda Civic and appeared to have enjoyed the time spent, saying, “Pushed hard, the coupe will do exactly that—push. It’s agile, but like most front-drive cars, sporty or not, the weight bias is decidedly forward, and it’s not very difficult to provoke noisy protest from the front tires in enthusiastic cornering.”

Prices

Pricing for the 2016 Civic Coupe has taken a small jump upwards over the last generation. The base Civic LX with the six-speed manual transmission starts at $19,050. That’s an increase of $760 over last year. Opting for higher trimmed models only makes the gap grow. The 2015 Civic Coupe EL listed for $20,390, while the new 2016 version goes for $22,300. Still, the extra cost is justifiable with the improvements found on the new 10th generation Civic.

Trim Engine Transmission MSRP EPA MPG Rating (city/highway/combined)
LX 2.0-liter V-Tec 6MT $19,050 26/38/31
LX 2.0-liter V-Tec CVT $19,850 30/41/34
LX-P 2.0-liter V-tec CVT $20,850 31/41/35
EX 1.5-liter Turbo CVT $22,300 31/41/35
EX-L 1.5-liter Turbo CVT $23,425 31/41/35
Touring 1.5-liter Turbo CVT $26,125 31/41/35

Competitive Pricing

As far as pricing goes, the Kia Forte Coup will set you back less than the Civic or the BRZ/86 twins with a starting price of $16,490. The Range-topping model tops out at $21,200, which is about five grand less than the Touring Civic or the twins with a manual transmission.

Pricing Range
Honda Civic $19,050 - $26,125
Kia Forte Koup $16,490 - $21,200
Toyota 86/ Subaru BRZ $26,255 - $26,975

Competition

Kia Forte Koup

The Forte Koup – Kia-speak for coupe – is one of the main competitors for the Civic Coupe. Though you cannot get the Forte Koup in the lower LX trim level, the better equipped EX trim is available for just a few hundred bucks more than the base Civic Coupe. This gives the Forte an advantage in terms of bang for the buck.

Powering the Forte Koup EX is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces a respectable 173 horsepower and 154 pound-feet of torque. This engine turns in fuel economy ratings of 24 mpg city and 33 mpg highway with the manual transmission. The SX trim uses a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 201 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque.

Toyota 86

When Toyota decided to kill off the Scion brand, the Scion FR-S was one of just three cars from the Scion lineup to be carried over into Toyota’s lineup. Through a joint venture with Subaru, a rebadged version of the 86 is also sold as the Subaru BRZ. This specific model features a sporty exterior, functional and inviting interior, and is powered by a 2.0-liter, horizontally opposed four-banger that delivers 200 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. Models equipped with a manual transmission come with a slight bump in power, producing 205 horsepower and 158 pound-feet of torque. Available in just two trims – AT and MT – the 86 or BRZ will set you back $26,255 with an automatic or $26,975 with a manual. While that seems like a lot in comparison to entry-level models of the Civic and Forte Koup, it’s important to remember that the 86 comes well equipped in both trims, while you’ll have to upgrade to the range-topping models of the Civic or Forte to have a similar list of features.

Read our full review of the Toyota 86 here.

Conclusion

So, does the Civic give you the best bang for your buck? Well, that really all depends on exactly what it is that you’re looking for. If your primary concern is fuel economy and sporty/aggressive styling, then the Civic is for you. Even in entry-level form, it comes correct in both of those departments, far ahead of the competition. If power is more important to you, then you might be better off going with the BRZ/86 twins or the Forte in a higher trim level. Of course, the Civic holds is own fairly well in the 60-mph sprint with 6.8 seconds. That beats out the Forte by 1.9 seconds at best but is topped by the BRZ with a manual transmission by 0.4 seconds. On the other hand, if you’re looking for something that isn’t front-wheel drive, you’ll be stuck with one of the twins, as neither the Civic or the Forte can be had with RWD.

On a side note, it should be mentioned that the new Civic does compete with models like the BMW 2 Series Coupe and the Mercedes C-Class on an aesthetic level. Both models are more powerful and way more expensive, but the Civic can hold its own as far as looks, fit and finish, and functionality go. That’s saying a lot for a car that is Typically considered an econobox. Furthermore, the Civic has traditionally been a candidate for aftermarket tuning, with a wide array of aftermarket parts normally available within the first couple years of production. With a proper gameplan, the Civic can be tuned to be more powerful and quicker on the go than its luxurious German counterparts. It will look just as good doing it, and will ultimately be cheaper in the long run while providing exceptional fuel economy. Now that’s what you call a win-win if you’re someone who enjoys turning a wrench every now and again.

Press Release

The newest member of the completely reengineered and reimagined 10th-generation Civic lineup – the 2016 Civic Coupe – will make its first public appearance at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show. Launching in March, the 2016 Civic Coupe delivers an even sportier and emotional take on the new Civic design while benefitting from the multitude of upgrades to the 10th-generation Civic lineup, including a sophisticated and sporty new chassis, a more spacious and quieter cabin, class-leading fuel-economy ratings and targeted top-in-class crash safety ratings.

2016 Honda Civic Coupe High Resolution Exterior

The new 2016 Civic Coupe, like its sedan counterpart, will feature two advanced new engines, including the first-ever turbo engine for the Coupe, delivering more power, performance and fuel efficiency. All new Civic Coupes, from the well-equipped LX to the new, line-topping Touring trim, also receive significant upgrades to interior style, with soft-touch materials and high-grade finishes, along with a bevy of new standard and available features, including the Honda Sensing™ suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies as well as both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.

“We continue on our epic 10th-generation Civic journey with the sportiest, most sophisticated and tech-savvy Civic Coupe yet,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. and general manager of the Honda Division. “I think our customers are going to be utterly surprised by what this new Coupe delivers in terms of refinement, safety, efficiency and fun-to-drive performance.”

The 2016 Civic Coupe is the second in a series of new 10th-generation Civic models that Honda is launching over the course of the next 18 months, including the Civic Sedan, Civic Coupe, the first-ever Civic 5-door hatchback for the U.S. market, Civic Si performance variants and for the first time in the U.S., the radical new Civic Type-R.

Civic Coupe Styling
The 2016 Civic Coupe carries forward the sporty and premium character of the 10th-generation Civic design, including the bold front fascia, fast-back profile and sharp-edged detailing, as well as its more athletic wheels out proportions – its longer wheelbase (+2.9 inches), wider body (+1.9 inches), shortened front overhang (-1.4 inches) and wider stance. The new Coupe also benefits from the lower seating position, or hip point, of the new Civic platform, which amplifies the Coupe’s low, wide and planted dynamic driving character.

2016 Honda Civic Coupe High Resolution Exterior Wallpaper quality
- image 655928

From the A-pillars rearward, the Coupe features unique exterior styling with a lower and more steeply raked roofline, nearly 1 inch lower than the Sedan, and more compact proportions, with the rear overhang and overall length shortened by 5.5 inches. The new Coupe also features an exclusive rear taillight design that carries the arch of the distinctive C-shaped LED taillights across the full length of the rear deck lid.

Sporty and Spacious Coupe Interior
The 2016 Civic Coupe’s sportier design does not come at the expense of passenger comfort, as interior space grows by 8.4 cubic feet and rear seat legroom is increased by more than 5 inches, compared to the outgoing Coupe model. The new Civic Coupe interior strikes a more premium tone with high-quality materials and high-contrast finishes. These include a new one-piece, soft-touch instrument panel with molded stitching; more premium seat fabrics; a new full-color TFT center meter (EX and above trims); door inserts with real stitching; an LED shift indicator and LED overhead lighting; and for EX and higher trims, a leather shift lever boot.

Civic Coupe Feature Upgrades
All new Civic Coupes, from the well-equipped LX to the new line-topping Touring, feature upgraded interiors and an expanded list of standard and available technologies and features. New standard equipment includes auto on/off headlights, LED daytime running lights, LED taillights, acoustic glass windshield, automatic climate control (dual-zone in upper trims), Electric Parking Brake with Brake Hold and Walk-Away auto door locks. New available features include Honda LED headlights, Remote engine start, heated front seats and side mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, full-color TFT center meter and seven-inch Display Audio touchscreen.

Civic Coupe Audio and Connectivity
The new Civic Coupe delivers the latest in audio and connected-car technology, including more powerful audio systems; an available new Android OS-based, 7-inch Display Audio touch screen interface; a bevy of streaming audio options such as Pandora®, SiriusXM® and HD Radio™; and for trims with Display Audio, full compatibility with both Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® platforms. The Civic Coupe highest trims will also feature a new Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ developed in cooperation with the experts at Garmin.

Advanced New Powertrains
The 2016 Civic Coupe will launch with two more powerful and fuel-efficient powertrains, Lower trims receive a new 2.0-liter DOHC i-VTEC™ engine turning out 158 horsepower and 138 lb.-ft. of torque1 (+15 HP and +9 lb.-ft. vs. 2015 Civic 1.8L) with anticipated EPA fuel-economy ratings of 31/41/35 mpg2 (city/highway/combined) for models equipped with CVT. This engine can also be equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission on the lowest trim. Civic Coupe mid to highest trims are powered by a new 1.5-liter DOHC direct-injected TURBO – the first-ever turbocharged engine for Civic Coupe – putting out a peak 174 horsepower and 162 lb.-ft. of torque3 (+31 HP and +33 lb.-ft. vs. 2015 Civic 1.8L) with anticipated EPA ratings of 31/42/35 mpg2.

Advanced Safety Performance
The 2016 Civic Coupe utilizes Honda’s next generation Advanced Compatibility Body Structure™ (ACE™) working in conjunction with advanced airbags and seatbelts to provide a high degree of safety performance. Utilizing these systems in conjunction with the available new Honda Sensing™ suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies, the 2016 Civic Coupe with Honda Sensing™ targets the highest available U.S. safety ratings – an NCAP 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and a TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
