2016 Honda Civic: Best Seats In a Decade
by Dan Frio, Automotive Editor on September 28, 2016
The verdicts are trickling in and most of us seem to like the seats in our 2016 Honda Civic.
I'm a fan. There's plenty to like about this new Civic, but the seats are high on my list. It's strange, because the seats aren't especially firm or well-bolstered. They're shapely, but not particularly sporty. Still, they're the best seats in a Civic that I can recall since the 2006 Si model debuted.
Honda says the seat frames are 17 percent lighter and the range of the seat-bottom height adjustment has increased by almost a half-inch compared to the last model. Oddly, there's no lumbar adjustment. The fixed lumbar support isn't bad, though. Personally I'd prefer a little less, but I hardly notice it once underway.
There's really only one downside. The perforated leather is a neat touch, but the perforations are already filling with crud.
