Which Civic does Edmunds recommend?

Any 2017 Honda Civic powered by the superb turbocharged 1.5-liter engine will be a good choice by our standards. If you're looking for the most equipment for your money, the EX-T trim makes for quite a good value. It includes available features for the Civic such as remote start and the LaneWatch blind-spot camera. A base Civic such as the LX is certainly appealing, and the standard 2.0-liter engine is fine, but the extra power and fuel economy gained with the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine are worth the price.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

4.5 / 5

Redesigned just a year ago, the 2017 Honda Civic has re-established its standing as a no-brainer choice for a small car. Think of it this way: Are you interested in impressive fuel economy and/or class-leading acceleration? Yep, the Civic's got that. What about a comfortable, roomy interior filled with upscale materials? Check. Do you want something livelier than the typical sedan? Well, Honda's got coupe and new hatchback body styles on offer for 2017, plus the new performance-focused Si and Type R variants.

An excellent all-arounder, the newest Civic drives well no matter which version you pick. Out on the highway, the Civic offers a composed ride quality that doesn't get overly floaty or harsh. Honda has also packed in plenty of the latest technology, from smartphone integration to advanced driver aids that can help you avoid accidents. No matter how you look at it, the 2017 Honda Civic is one of the best cars in its class.

What's it like to live with?

The Honda Civic has long been one of the better compact cars, but its 2016 redesign was nothing short of game-changing. Not only did it help revitalize the Civic nameplate, it shifted our expectations of what a compact car could be. This generation Civic is well regarded for its spacious cabin, excellent ride quality, upscale interior materials and superb handling. We're also smitten with its powerful and efficient turbocharged engine. We liked it so much, in fact, that we plunked down our own money to buy one. To read about our experiences with a top-of-the-line Touring sedan, read our long-term Civic test. Note that while we tested a 2016 Civic, all of our observations still apply to the 2017 model.

2017 Honda Civic models

The 2017 Honda Civic is a compact car offered as a sedan, coupe or hatchback. The sedan is available in six different trim levels: LX, EX, EX-T, EX-L, Touring and Si. There are also three hatchback-specific trims: Sport, Sport Touring and Type R.

Though it may be the base trim, the standard Civic LX comes with a lot of equipment for the money. Standard equipment includes a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (158 horsepower, 138 pound-feet of torque), a six speed manual transmission (a continuously variable transmission is also available), 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, LED daytime running lights and taillights, full power accessories, 60/40-split folding rear seatbacks, cruise control, an expanded-view driver side mirror, automatic climate control, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel and manual front seats with driver height adjustment. Electronics features include a 5-inch central display screen, a rearview camera, Bluetooth (phone and audio), and a four-speaker sound system with a USB port.

For the hatchback, the Sport comes with the LX equipment plus a more powerful version of the turbocharged engine, 18-inch alloy wheels, foglights, a center-outlet dual exhaust, aerodynamic bodywork, a rear center armrest with cupholders, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.

The standard LX is nice enough, but if you'd like a bit more in-car tech and a few more basic creature comforts, then step up to the EX. The EX builds off the base LX, but it adds the CVT as standard along with a sunroof, heated side mirrors, a rear center armrest with cupholders, an eight-speaker audio system with dual USB ports, Honda's LaneWatch blind-spot camera, dynamic guidelines for the rearview camera, keyless ignition and entry with remote start, and a 7-inch touchscreen interface with satellite radio, Pandora compatibility, HondaLink smartphone integration and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration (including app-based navigation).

Stepping up to the EX-T gets you one of the Civic's best items, the turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine (174 hp, 167 lb-ft). It also comes with a six-speed manual transmission as standard or an optional CVT (174 hp, 162 lb-ft). Thanks to impressive acceleration and big fuel economy numbers, the turbocharged four-cylinder is enough reason alone to buy an EX-T Civic or above, but the EX-T also adds foglights, dual-zone automatic climate control and heated front seats.

Right near the top of the heap is the EX-L, which gets the CVT and upgrades to leather upholstery, an eight-way power driver seat, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and an integrated navigation system.

The hatchback-only Sport Touring essentially builds off the regular Sport trim and adds different 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, automatic wipers, a four-way power passenger seat, heated rear seats and a 12-speaker audio system. Also standard is a Honda Sensing safety package that includes adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, lane departure intervention, and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking. You can get the Honda Sensing safety package as an option on the other Civic trim levels.

The Touring trim level (for the sedan) essentially comes with the same equipment as the Sport Touring hatchback, but the stereo has 10 speakers instead of 12.

The Si is a midlevel performance version of the Civic that comes as a coupe or sedan, both with a more powerful version of the turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine (205 hp, 192 lb-ft). A six-speed manual is the only transmission offered. Standard equipment is similar to what Honda has on the EX-T trim, but you also get a sport-tuned suspension with adaptive dampers, bigger front brakes, a limited-slip front differential, a unique rear spoiler, Si branded seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, the 10-speaker stereo, and a unique instrument panel with faux carbon-fiber surfaces.

For detailed Civic Si information and driving impressions, please read our First Drive Si review.

At the top of the performance ladder for the Civic is the hatchback-only Type R. It is equipped much like the Sport Touring trim level, but it gets a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (306 hp, 285 lb-ft). Like the Si, it is only available with a six-speed manual transmission. Other additions include 20-inch wheels with high-performance tires, bigger front and rear brakes, a massive rear wing, a Type R-specific suspension with adaptive dampers, and special interior and exterior styling enhancements.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions, although trim levels share many aspects. The ratings in this review are based on our Full Test of the 2016 Honda Civic Touring Sedan (1.5L 4-cyl. turbo; CVT automatic). You can also get separate and detailed impressions in our First Drives of the Civic Si and Civic Type R.

Driving

5.0
The 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, available or standard on all but the base LX trim, is unusual in its sound and power delivery for a Honda engine, but it delivers best-in-class power and fuel economy. It's worth the extra money.

Acceleration

4.5
Some may dislike the nontraditional aspect of the CVT, but with the 1.5-liter turbo-four it contributes to a best-in-class 0-to-60 mph time of 6.7 seconds. It feels quick in real-world driving thanks to ample, steady low-end power. In contrast, the 2.0-liter paired with the CVT is a bit sluggish.

Braking

5.0
The days of underpowered, quickly fading Honda brakes are over. When we tested the Civic's emergency braking from 60 mph to a complete stop, it did it in a short 117 feet. In traffic, the brakes are firm and easily modulated, and the pedal has excellent feel.

Steering

5.0
There's less feel and feedback in this Civic than with past Honda steering, but by current class standards, it is very good. The steering wheel feels precise and natural, with spot-on, consistent weighting.

Handling

4.5
Around turns, body roll is controlled and left-right transitions are handled nicely. It feels playful, and there's a lot of freedom and control for the driver — its well-tuned stability system doesn't quash the fun. Grippier tires would make it even better.

Drivability

3.5
The Civic's CVT simulates gears only in foot-to-floor acceleration (we didn't feel it otherwise), and its Sport mode could hold revs better up and down hills. Honda Sensing's collision warning system is hyperactive. Otherwise this car is pretty easy to drive.

Comfort

4.5
Previous Civics were known for their loud cabins, firm rides and less-than-friendly seats for tall folks. No more with the newest Civic, which suddenly feels like a shrunken Accord. The improvements make it more well-rounded and as well-suited to long trips as short ones.

Seat comfort

4.5
The available eight-way power driver seat offers a huge range of motion, making it very comfortable for a wide variety of driver heights. They are a bit firm, but they hold you in place well during cornering and they're good over long distances.

Ride comfort

5.0
Like a German car, you feel every road imperfection in the Civic, but impacts are very well damped. Big undulations, especially mid-corner, are handled with impeccable control. Not one iota of float. It feels like a bigger, more refined car.

Noise & vibration

3.5
The turbocharged engine has a very un-Honda-like growl to it, and the CVT causes a light drone when accelerating. Otherwise, wind and road noise is kept in check far better than the overly loud Hondas of the not-so-distant past.

Interior

4.5
Honda's touchscreen interface can be annoying to use, and those of most competitors are better. Beyond that, the Civic delivers a large, versatile cabin for both people and their things. The front center console design is extremely clever.

Ease of use

2.5
The 7-inch touchscreen on most trims is easily reached (as all controls are), but it can be a bit maddening. There are confusing menus, too-small buttons and slow response times. Also, the transition between Apple/Android controls and the Honda system is convoluted.

Getting in/getting out

3.5
The rear doors are wide and open wide, making it easy to climb in — or install a child seat. This most recent Civic sedan has more of a sloped roof than before, so be mindful of your head. We found no issues getting in or out up front. All of the doors are very light and open and close easily.

Driving position

4.0
Thanks to highly adjustable seats, a standard tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel and generally good seating position, it's easy to find a comfortable place to sit inside the Civic.

Roominess

5.0
The Civic's large backseat means even 6-foot-tall adults can sit in both the front and backseat with sufficient leg- and headroom. The available eight-way power driver seat aids front seat room tremendously. Even with the optional sunroof, there's plenty of front headroom.

Visibility

4.0
The newest Civic is less boxy than previous generations and the downward roof slant reduces rear quarter views slightly. Still a great view ahead, though. Big side mirrors and a standard rearview camera help out, too.

Quality

5.0
The Honda Civic we tested in Touring trim actually looks/feels more expensive than it is and challenges even Acura quality. All trims have top-notch materials everywhere (plus cloth or stitched imitation leather on center console) and typically tight Honda construction.

Utility

5.0
The 2017 Honda Civic has lots of space, and it uses it well. Everything is packaged in a way that you can store plenty of small items in the cabin as well as several large suitcases in the trunk.

Small-item storage

5.0
The clever, multilevel and configurable center console has movable cupholders (sadly not anti-tip) and a smartly designed area for smartphones. All four doors have large pockets for small item storage as well.

Cargo space

5.0
The sedan's trunk measures a whopping 15.1 cubic feet. The opening for the trunk is wide (but not very tall), which makes it simple to load large items.

Technology

The Civic's no-knob volume system is always frustrating, and smartphone integration is also disappointing. We've also found reliability issues in our long-term test of the Civic's HondaLink system. What's more, the adaptive cruise control is a bit too quick to react in traffic.

2017 Honda Civic Type R - The Last Samurai?
Alec,11/19/2017
Type R 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
Perhaps the most fitting descriptor I could open with for the 2017 Honda Civic Type R is the millennial expression “extra”. The top Urban Dictionary definition for "extra" is “over the top, excessive, dramatic behavior, way too much”. The latest Type R’s looks are all of the above, but that is mostly where the new “extra” ends and the traditional, positive denotation begins. If you can look past or appreciate the peacocking aesthetics, the Civic Type R is an extra-special anachronism. On paper, this car looks like it came from a bygone era. But like many of it's hot Hondas ancestors, the Civic Type R's published 0-60 and 1/4 mile performance is deceiving and undersells an extremely fun to drive machine. While the segment’s other hottest hatchbacks come with all-wheel drive, Honda continues to redefine the limits of front-wheel propulsion. Early dyno tests reveal that the 2.0L turbo K20C1 engine was likely underrated at 306 hp, with readings as high as 295 wheel horsepower. Merging onto highways is an oddly similar experience to my stock C5 Corvette. Yes, the Chevrolet was roughly a full second faster in every rolling acceleration measure, and the Type R does have a hint of turbo lag, but the "R" also remains unflappably precise and planted as speeds rapidly approach reckless driving territory. Thanks to the brilliant dual-axis suspension and Continental tires, I have yet to notice more than the faintest wiggle of torque steer during flat-out corner exits in second gear. Offered only with a superb six-speed manual transmission and no optional equipment, the Type R is leaner than its cohorts, handling more like a ‘roided-up CRX than it’s 3117-pound curb weight would suggest. Selecting “+R” mode sets the shocks to their firmest damping and sharpens throttle sensitivity. Couple this mode with a fully-deactivated VSA system and the rear end will dance and oversteer out of lower to mid-speed turns. In high-speed cornering and braking abilities, I don't believe any new, unmodified car can hang with the Civic Type R below the $40,000 mark. However, this Porsche-like poise can be softened in “Sport” mode and brought back to Civic Touring levels in “Comfort” mode. Both the engine and exhaust notes are also highly subdued, no annoying drones on the highway. Admittedly, I am this car’s demographic bullseye buyer (32 year-old, middle class male) who got his driver's license in 2001, the year many of us first met Brian O’Conner and Dom Toretto. But putting my fanboy biases aside, the Civic Type R is a masterpiece. It is likely one of the last highly tactile, reasonably affordable “driver’s cars” Honda will produce thanks to market trends and harsher mandatory regulations every year. Thank you, Honda, for your latest -- and hopefully not last -- Samurai.
Amazing Excellence made by Honda just superior etc
R. Mapili Diamond Kings Driver,02/29/2020
Type R 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I bought a 2017 Civic Type R Touring and it’s everything that was advertised and promised by automotive experts and by Honda. Out the gate I drove it on a 4 hour ride home and I was in shock of its handling characteristics and blistering speed capabilities! Above all the performance prowess I was unexpectedly blown away by its long distance driving comfort and fatigue removing seats and ergonomics! I did later drive 20 hours to Vegas and back and that proved similar experiences becoming now a regular expectation to take me anywhere and back with no back pains etc. The seats to me are priceless. In the first two weeks I took it for a proper flogging at the Ridge Motorsports park 22 hours from my house in Montana. It took me to the track and back home all in 4 days just add gas! I destroyed everything that was on the track from ford RS to BMW M4’s to 5.0 Mustangs and fully built civics. They just had no answer for how I dominated in the Apex and on 90% of the track from braking to holding 100mph cornering speeds. In stock form this is a no bs racecar built by Honda to be daily driven. That fact alone is mind blowing. All in all I have no regrets I wish I could by 2 more. And I will. I love it 3 years later like its week 1. Go find a car that will thrill you like this for 3 years straight. If you do you have found the right car. I certainly and unequivocally Have done so.
Civic Type R- best so far
Forrest Bashaw,08/23/2017
Type R 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
Wish it had sunroof,but at least backseats like front and bumper corner panels should be real vent screens. Otherwise perfect hottest hatch. dealers shouldn't be charging so much; just wrong.
Civic Type R is the Best Hot Hatch in the World
HondaPro Jason,05/28/2020
Type R 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I have wanted a Civic Type R since about 2000. Honda Finally released it here in the U.S in 2017 and with the new turbocharged Honda engine with amazing looks and insane handling makes this the best Type R Honda has ever made. HondaPro Jason

Should I lease or buy a 2017 Honda Civic?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
