After a top-down overhaul last year, the 2017 Honda Civic sedan continues to be unchanged this season except for a newly appointed 6-speed manual transmission for the EX-L trim. Costing a generous listed base MSRP of $19,630, the Honda Civic trim level expands with LX, EX, EXT, EXL, and Touring configurations with 158 hp 2.0 L and 174 hp 1.5L Turbo I-4 engines at their disposal as per specifics. Moreover, a top-notch mileage of up to 42 MPG further elaborates the likes of this 5-seater Honda Civic Sedan 2017.

Having put straight against the rivals such as the Mazda 3, Toyota Corolla, and Nissan Sentra, the Honda Civic sedan has to have pretty stiff competition to take on. However, its practicality and utility with its 15.1 cu-ft interior cargo capacity and a 5-star NHTSA safety rating and a duo of 6-speed manual and CVT on offer will strengthen its engineering philosophy and roots.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

The 2017 Honda Civic Sedan has been a carry-over model of the 2016 MY meaning the thrust of 115 MPH-130 MPH across the lineup for the 158hp-174hp I-4 engines respectively for a price tag of $19,630-$27,490 is going to be as it is. Moreover, the recently appointed optional Honda Sensing Technology further enhances its overall stature as a complete drive for your family and so do the upgradeable interior tech-ends. 

As far as finances are concerned, the Honda Civic LX 2017 (CVT) costs you minimal maintenance of $4,396 in 5 years along with a repair of $2,224 and fuel expense of $7,562. However, the same Civic EX-L gets a little generous with a maintenance investment of $4,436 but the repair continues to be relatively higher at $2,632. Apart from that, there is a depreciation of as much as $11,933 for the Honda Civic 2017 Touring is also there for you to bear. 


Buying Advice

Honda Civic EX-T trim offers the best equipment for the money and is the most valuable option. It is available with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces more power than its younger siblings and also scores well in the EPA fuel-economy test. It has multiple transmission options at hand as well with far better comfort inside the cabin as compared to lower trims. And its coupling with Honda Sensing makes it at par with higher trims in the safety suite despite being relatively much cheaper. 

 

Features
8.0/10

The 2017 Civic Sedam trim level begins with LX which has been listed at an MSRP of $19,630 and has a 5-inch infotainment touchscreen, 16-inch steel wheels, and automatic climate control as standard. The next one in the production belt is the Civic EX at an investment of $22,030 for which it has been packed with Honda LaneWatch, an 8-speaker audio system, and 16-inch alloy wheels.

The EX-T configuration stands beside them with a starting expense of $22,390 and gets heated front seats, 17-inch alloy wheels, and dual-zone automatic climate control. While the 2017 Honda Civic EXL enters at $24,690 with additional features such as the leather upholstery and 8-way power-adjustable heated driver’s seat. And the narration ends with the Touring edition costing $27,490 for assets like the heated rear seat and Honda Sensing.

Engine and Performance
8.4/10

Like a vein of caramel running through an already-delicious ice cream, the 2017 Civic adeptly blends dollops of zeal with overall suppleness - Kelley Blue Book

The Honda Civic Sedan 2017 has been powered by a 2.0L I-4 engine that kicks in 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque for the LX and EX trims. It is coupled with both the 6-speed manual transmission and CVT but the manual transmission has been kept exclusive for the Civic LX only between the two.

We have a 1.5 L Turbo I-4 engine on offer for the Honda Civic 2017 Touring, EX-L, and EX-T as well, punching an even more thrilling 174 hp and 162 lb-ft torque at your throttle. And, it can be equipped with the same 6-speed manual transmission and CVT, however, only EX-T goes exclusive this time in terms of having both options.  

The Honda Civic horsepower makes it growl to have a 0-60 MPH of 9.2 seconds and a quarter-mile dash of 17.1 seconds with the 158 hp I-4 and CVT. While the manual ticks 8.5 seconds and 16.5 seconds respectively with the same 115 MPH top speed as that of the CVT one. If that is not enough, the 174 hp I-4 jolts a 6.6 seconds 0-60 and 15.1 seconds quarter-mile in a burst.

Going by the numbers, the 2017 Civic sedan is 0.4 seconds slower than the Mazda 3 in 0-60 MPH and quarter-mile while being $950 more expensive than the latter. On the other hand, the Nissan Sentra has same top speed as that of the Civic 2017 but is 1.1 seconds more sluggish on the 0-60 front and  0.7 seconds slower in the quarter-mile sprint. 

Fuel Economy
9.0/10

The 2017 Honda Civic specs 27 MPG of fuel economy through its 158 hp 2.0L I-4 while cruising in the city that increases up to 40 MPG on the highways. And with the 2017 Honda Civic gas tank size of 12.4 gallons completely filled to the brim, the range hits 334 / 496 / 384 miles for the City / Highway / Combined respectively. 

Meanwhile, the Honda Civic can return 31 MPG/41MPG/35MPG as well with the same power surge as we go for the more efficient CVT configuration. Whereas the 174 hp powerhouse returns a peak mileage of 42 MPG that can let it travel for 521 miles in a single refuel.

As per data, the 2017 Civic has got 51 miles less range than the Mazda 3 owing to its 0.8-gallon smaller gas tank size and 2 MPG lower fuel economy. Even, the Corolla outclasses the Civic Sedan in the combined range figure as the former can go extra 25 miles with its 0.8-gallon bigger fuel capacity. 

Interior
7.3/10

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 - Edmunds

The interior 2017 Honda Civic sedan has been crafted with mere cloth-seating having a 6-way driver and 4-way passenger manual adjustable for the LX, EX-T, and EX trims. However, one's convenience reaches another level as the front row gets heating function front EX-T onwards. And the automatic climate control upgrades to dual-zone automatic climate control for the same EX-T, EX-L, and Touring configuration.

The Honda Civic 2017 interior is the place for leatherette touches as well but that finish remains specific for the Civic 2017 EXL and Touring only on their 8-way power-adjustable driver and other seats. Just like that, there is a sense of exclusivity when it comes to rear row power heating as this ability has been integrated into Honda Civic 2017 Touring only. Meanwhile, there is a trunk capacity of 15.1 cu-ft too for you to load in your stuff.

Based on the data, the Civic sedan has been arranged to have the same cargo capacity as the Nissan Sentra which is 2.1 cu-ft larger than that of the Toyota Corolla. On top of that, the Civic is roomier than the Corolla too, thanks to its 4 inches of extra legroom in the back. Moreover, the Honda Civic 2017 features to have 5-inch infotainment for the LX trim and 7-inch infotainment for the rest of all. 

And, for musical vibes, the Honda Civic sedan incorporates a 4-speaker audio unit for the LX, 8-speaker audio for the EX, EXT, and EXL, and 10-speaker audio unit for the Touring trim. The HD Radio & Satellite Radio with real-time traffic and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility are among some of those assets that can be availed of with the Civic as per trim specifics.

Sedan and coupe models are arguably the most beautiful, though the new hatchback stands out – Kelley Blue Book

The 2017 Honda Civic Sedan looks as flamboyant as it can in its exterior colors tally of more than 7 accents while flashing the front fascia with the automatic headlights having LED DRLs. This lighting unit steps up to LED headlights as we choose to groove with Honda Civic 2017 Touring. 

Considering the Honda Civic wheels, at the same time, the platform rests on the 16-inch steel, 16-inch alloy, and 17-inch alloy wheels as per trim levels. While the sunroof is attached on top for the EX and other higher configuration, unlike the front fog lights & rear decklid spoiler that are available from EXT onwards.

Being the lightest among all, the Civic is pretty easy to handle on the corners due to a lower lateral mass transfer but its ground clearance is 1.1 inches lower than the Mazda 3, exposing the platform belly to the gravels. The same can be said to be true for the Sentra as it sits 1.4 inches higher than the Civic. Some of the notable exterior features have been mentioned below:

  • 2-Speed/Intermittent Windshield Wipers
  • Integrated Rear-Window Antenna
  • Projector-Beam Halogen Headlights with Auto-On/Off

Safety
7.8/10

The 2017 Honda Civic safety rating is a clear shot 5-star by the NHTSA and "Good" by the IIHS. On top of that, it has been inducted into the "Top Safety Pick" category as well by the IIHS for a well-built compact global platform. Also, the Honda Sensing Technology can be opted for all the trims with some extra buck but not for the Touring as it has been already standardized with that. Some of the notable safety virtues have been mentioned below:

  • Forward collision warning
  • Electronic Brake Distribution
  • Lane departure warning and lane-keep assist
  • Honda LaneWatch
  • Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with traction control.
Competition
8.0/10

 2017 Honda Civic vs 2017 Mazda 3

The 2017 Mazda 3 is simply ahead of the 2017 Honda Civic in terms of powertrain frugality and dominance. The power curve of the former is slightly superior and returns better fuel economy at the same time. The cabin spaciousness and interior technology are also at par with each to a large extent. All in all, it has to be Mazda 3 over the 2017 Civic Sedan as Mazda has got a better proposition to offer. 

2017 Honda Civic vs 2017 Toyota Corolla

The 2017 Civic Sedan is spirited with better acceleration than the Toyota Corolla with comparable fuel mileage on the whole. Also, it has got better cabin spaciousness for the 5 passengers to seat in. The available interior infotainment and entertainment packages across the lineup are also way too impressive in their functionalities. Therefore, one can go for Civic over Corolla.  

2017 Honda Civic vs 2017 Nissan Sentra

The Nissan Sentra feels a little sluggish in its pedaling because of a lower power surge under the hood. But it levels the ground against the 2017 Civic with a better range coverage. But when it comes to interior ambiance and technology, there is nothing much to point out. So, one can have either of them. 

 

Final Verdict

2017 Honda Civic Sedan is undoubtedly a great entry-level car. Driving is a fun experience in it with a decent comfortable cabin and engaging interior tech complexities alongside practicality and frugality. The dynamics are also at the same level as per the standards set for the segment. Therefore, it is surely one of the picks among all the options available.
