The 2011 Honda Civic is an incredible car that invites stares. The forward-thinking design has an edge that sets it apart from other cars. The honeycomb front grille is the first thing you see, along with a rear decklid spoiler, sporty 16-inch alloy wheels, and much more. The Civic Sedan has sleek lines, short front and rear overhangs, and a long, low windshield that makes this car a real beauty.
Inside, the Civic has gadgets that will please anyone. The EX and EX-L offers you a USB Audio Interface so that you can bring along your music library. The EX and EX-L allows you to add the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System, that is complete with voice recognition so that you will never get lost again. Want to call ahead for those reservations? Then use the Bluetooth HandsFreeLink.
The EX-L offers a leather-trimmed cabin with headed front seats. If you want a more sporty look, the LX-S has silver stitching on black upholstery and a steering wheel wrapped in perforated leather.
There is a two-tier instrument panel which displays all the information you could want and allows you to focus on the road. Don't worry about inviting your friends when you go out for the weekend. Five people can comfortably sit in the Civic, thanks to the rear floor which is flat.
Looking for power? The Civic has a 140 horsepower, 1.8 liter, 16-valve SOHC i-VTEC engine. You get plenty of power while having great gas mileage. You can get 25 city/36 highway mpg.
Do you prefer automatic or manual transmissions? You can choose either one with the Honda Civic. You can choose between a 5-speed manual for more control, or a smooth 5-speed automatic.
With steering systems and suspension that is greatly sophisticated, you can expect the Civic to be both agile and responsive. The DX and LX models have powerful braking with the front disc and rear drum brakes and the EX has discs all around.
Want safety? The Civic keeps you safe while letting you have fun driving. Each Civic has dual-stage, mutilple-threshold front airbags, front side airbags, and side-curtain airbags. On the passenger's side, the front side airbag has an Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS) that will keep it from deploying if the occupants is a small-statured person or a child, which avoids injuries.
The body is made using Civic's Advance Compatibility Engineering (ACE). This keeps occupants safer and there is a great crash compatibility in the case of frontal collisions.
The Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), which comes standard on the EX-L, detects oversteering or understeering and will brake individual wheels. It also will reduce engine speed as needed in order to make sure you stay on your path and don't lose control.
Anti-lock brakes help you stay in control while the Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) will make sure only the appropriate braking force is used depending on how loaded the car is.
There are six trims you can choose from – DX, DX-VP, LX, LX-S, EX, and EX-L. Prices are low, starting at just $15,805 for the DX. The EX-L starts at $21,955 and the others fall somewhere in between.
