Used 2019 Honda Civic Coupe
Which Civic does Edmunds recommend?
For most shoppers, the Civic is at its best with the turbocharged 1.5-liter engine, which comes standard on the midlevel EX trim. We like it because, in addition to being more powerful than the base 2.0-liter engine, it provides a significant boost in fuel economy and generally improves the driving experience.

|Overall||8.5 / 10|
Civics in EX trim level and above come with a spunky 1.5-liter turbocharged engine, and it works great with Honda's smooth and polished continuously variable automatic transmission. A composed and eager chassis is complemented by reassuringly strong brakes and accurate, steady steering.
The seats are comfortable and supportive without being too aggressive or confining, and that applies equally to the back seat. The ride is smooth and controlled without being too cushy. Road noise and engine sound are never far away, but neither is obnoxious enough to be distracting.
The impressive interior space and adult-friendly back seat make this a coupe that can easily go on long road trips. The ideally shaped trunk maximizes the available cargo capacity and several smart small-item storage cubbies help store your knickknacks. The logical and easy-to-use interior control layout is a big bonus, too.
For its class, the Civic coupe has a spacious trunk and clever interior storage. It's easy fitting large bags in back or finding a spot for your personal effects in the cabin. Loading car seats is aided by the large door openings and the roomy back seat. The split-folding rear seats give you space for longer items, too.
With the return of a volume knob and some physical (non-touchscreen) buttons, the Civic's tech interface has gone from frustrating to user-friendly. Native nav input is easy and intuitive, and most models have dual USB ports and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto. Honda Sensing includes all the main advanced driving aids you'd want and is available on all trims.

EX 2dr Coupe (1.5L 4cyl Turbo CVT)
My Honda gets good gas mileage and is fun to drive.
LX 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl CVT)
The 2.0L is good enough for me, plenty of power to pass. Good thing is in the long run you don't have to worry about the turbo stressing out your engine.

Great auto. I recommend this automobile.
