2020 Honda Civic Touring sedan

Pros: Roomy interior; crisp handling; economical powertrains; “Honda Sensing” safety features are standard on almost all models

Cons: Touchscreen controls aren’t easy to use while driving; so-so acceleration; noisier than many compact-car rivals; ride can get a bit stiff over rough pavement

CG Says: The 2020 Honda Civic Si and hatchback models get revised front and rear styling, along with a few interior tweaks. The Si also gains standard “Honda Sensing” suite of safety equipment (lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, forward collision warning and mitigation, and adaptive cruise control) and has a revised control system. Plus, Honda has changed the Si’s final drive ratio for better acceleration. A 6-speed manual transmission is newly available on the Sport Touring hatchback. Civic is a compact car available as a 4-door sedan, 4-door hatchback, and 2-door coupe. Civic offers the choice of a 158-horsepower 2.0-liter 4-cylinder or a turbocharged 1.5-liter four in most models. The 1.5-liter engine develops 174 hp, 180 hp, or 205 hp in performance Si. (See engine chart below.) The low-production Type R is powered by a 305-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder. Among Civic’s available features are remote engine start, rain-sensing wipers, heated rear seats, dual-zone climate control, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto functionality for the infotainment system. Civic’s 2016 redesign put Honda back at the top of the incredibly competitive compact-car class. Some of its rivals are quieter, and some offer more features for the money, but the Civic’s spaciousness, available tech features, engaging driving personality, efficiency, and all-around refinement—not to mention its model lineup—make it a compact-car must-see.
