Finally, those who have been looking forward to seeing the Honda Civic 2016 on the show floor will be getting their wishes as the LX and certain EX-models are available to drive off the lot. Here is everything that has been released so far with the Honda Civic 2016 Sedans with Release Date, Specs, and Prices for LX, EX, EX-L, EX-T, and Touring Editions.
According to 2016 Cars Reviews, the new generation of the Honda Civic will be "even greater than you thought". The new model for 2016 will be improved, refreshed, and redesigned, and it will be available in three different models: wagon, sedan, and hatchback. The front fascia and bumper have a new look, and there are newly designed LED headlights and daytime running lights.
As for the interior, it will have a terrific audio and electric system, a radar and navigation system, as well as a panoramic roof. There will also be a 7-inch touchscreen display and Bluetooth connectivity, and it will have the Civic's split-level dash, which Honda enthusiasts either admire or despise. The Civic's steering wheel has a useful touch-capacitive control for better control of the driving experience.
