Highlighting the Civic Vs. Competition

As one of the leading automobiles on the market today, the Honda Civic faces stiff competition. Visit the Honda of Gainesville dealership to see the new 2020 Honda Civic for sale.

When shopping for an efficient and affordable four door sedan, there are many options to choose from. The Toyota Corolla, Hyundai Elantra and Mazda6 are similar four door sedans, but the Honda Civic takes it to the next level. Stop into the Honda of Gainesville dealership to test drive a 2020 Honda Civic today.

Performance and Fuel Economy Comparison

When it comes to comparing the performance of the four door sedans, they all feature similar power and fuel economy numbers.
The Honda Civic offers many additional customization options for drivers. A 2.0L 4-cylinder engine comes standard in the Civic Sedan LX. A turbocharged 1.5L engine is available with select configurations. Honda’s 2.0L packs 158 horsepower with 138 lb-ft of torque. The available 1.5L Turbo offers 174 horsepower with 162 lb-ft of torque.

Honda Civic Sport models offer a 6-speed manual transmission, whereas other Civic models feature a Continuously Variable transmission.

2020 Honda Civics with a Continuously Variable transmission achieve an EPA-estimated city/highway mpg of 30/38. The 6-speed offers a 25/36 city/highway mpg. Civic EX and EX-L models feature a slightly different version of the Continuously Variable transmission. This CVT allows these models to achieve an EPA-estimated mpg of 32/42 for the city and highway.

Out of the four sedans in this comparison, only the Mazda6 Sport features more horsepower than the Civic. Of course, the Civic is more fuel efficient than the Mazda so Honda still retains an edge over the competition.

Interior Technology Meets Convenience

Each of the highlighted four-door sedans offer seating for up to five passengers. They all also offer Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration. This allows drivers to access their favorite compatible apps and music through a user-friendly interface.
The interior of the Honda Civic features beautiful leather-trimmed seating along with a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. Available heated driver and passenger seats offer comfort all year round. The Touring Trim also offers seat heating for rear passengers.

An available one-touch power moonroof opens and closes with a single push of a button. This convenient moonroof offers the option of fresh air inside the cabin. The Honda Civic also offers an available Remote Engine Start to have your sedan prepared to depart when you are.

Drivers should be able to find a comfortable seating position with the available 8-way power driver’s seat. This option includes a lower cushion with a tilt-up or down feature for added comfort.

A 60/40 split fold-down rear seatback offers more versatility on the go in the Honda Civic. The Civic also features a spacious trunk to store your cargo.

Comparing the Safety of the Civic Versus the Competition

Each of the four-door sedans feature a rearview or backup camera to improve visibility when parking and driving in reverse. Only the Civic features Honda LaneWatch™. With this technology, a live video feed displays from a small camera positioned on the passenger side mirror. This technology improves lane change safety.

The Honda Civic’s Multi-Angle Rearview camera offers three different camera angles. Normal, top-down and wide mode all improve driver visibility when in reverse.

Out of this sedan comparison group, only the Civic offers The Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver-assistive technology.

The Honda Sensing package includes the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™). CMBS determines when a frontal collision is unavoidable and applies appropriate braking pressure to bring the Civic to a full stop.

Also included is the Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM). This determines when operators cross over their driving lines without signaling. RDM also provides steering assistance to gently guide drivers back into their lane. Brake assistance is also provided when necessary to prevent you from leaving the roadway entirely.

The Honda Civic features many additional features on top of Honda Sensing technology to keep drivers and passengers safe.
