2016 Honda Civic: Clever Pass-Through Makes for Tidy Interior
by Carlos Lago, Road Test Editor on February 23, 2016
Reach into the 2016 Honda Civic's center console, just ahead of the shifter, and you'll find a hole. This hole leads down to the lower storage area, where you'll find a USB port and a power outlet. It's a pass-through for cables.
Plug your USB cable into the port and run it through the hole and it'll hang out in the upper center console. It's the perfect spot for a smartphone.
This makes it both easy to connect your phone when you hop in the car and helps keep the interior looking tidy by hiding an unsightly cable. Why do so few cars do this? Considering how well Android Auto works, I plan on having my phone set up like this all the time.
And here's a bonus: That lower storage area? It's an excellent place for a purse or small bag.
Smart stuff, Honda.
