2016 Honda Civic: Best Seats In a Decade

2016 Honda Civic

The verdicts are trickling in and most of us seem to like the seats in our 2016 Honda Civic.

Brent liked them on a long road trip; James and Travis too. Ed isn't sold on their long-haul comfort, but he said that could be due to his body type.

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.
