2014 Honda Civic Ex-L

For many, the search for Civic perfection begins and ends with the 2014 Honda Civic sedan, with Navigation offered only on EX-L trims for this year. New technology features include available 7-inch touch screen infotainment system, that functions similarly to a Smartphone with next generation HondaLink connectivity, that can help you access news, social media personalized restaurant searches and more.

A lane departure warning system with blind spot monitoring is also a new safety tech offered on the Civic this year. Every civic is equipped with a single-angle rearview camera, while navigation-equipped models offer three camera angles to choose from wide, normal and overhead view of the rear bumper.

The continuously variable automatic transmission offers greater fuel efficiency as well as improved performance over the outgoing auto trans and is optional on gas powered coupe and sedans.  This dynamic Honda Civic was fun to drive. Now I see why this car is so popular.  The 1.8 liter, single overhead camshaft, aluminum-alloy i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine uses state-of-the-art engineering technology to produce an impressive 143 hp (SAE net), yet it still receives excellent fuel-efficiency ratings and a partial zero-emission vehicle rating all on regular gasoline.

Honda’s new Earth Dreams continuously variable transmission CVT provides an outstanding driving experience.  The pick up is great and the EPA gas mileage:  22 City/31 Highway/combined 32.  MSRP starts at $24,040.
