The 2021 Honda Civic interior comes as a carry-over design from last year having the same blend of cloth and leather seats across the lineup, starting at an MSRP of $21,250. The Honda Civic trim levels of LX, Sport, EX, EXL, and Touring continue to have a commoner 15.1 cu-ft trunk capacity this season yet again just like the interior shades of more than 5 accents. 

The 2021 Civic sedan has been brought up to face the comforts features of the rivals such as Toyota Corolla, Hyundai Elantra, and Mazda 3. However, its available heated functions along with upgradeable infotainment and musical units are there to make up for the industry standard for this practical 5-seater sedan.

2021 Honda Civic Sedan Interior Design, Dimensions, and Comfort

The Honda Civic interior 2021 remains unchanged in its ambiance with heated front seats for the EX and EX-L whereas the Touring trim gets in both front row(complete power adjustable) and rear row heating convenience. And so is that 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat. While the lower configurations such as the Civic LX and Civic Sport Sedans feature a relatively downscale comfort with those 6-way and 4-way manual adjustable seats for driver and passenger respectively.

Having said that, the Honda Civic 2021 interior is a space with dual-zone automatic climate control for the EX-L and Touring, while the sunroof and leather-wrapped steering wheel include EX with these two as well. As far seating upholstery is concerned, one may not find more than cloth surfacing inside the LX, EX, and Honda Civic Sport 2021 that upgrades to leatherette ones for the Civic Touring and EX-L.

Going by the figure, the Civic cargo space is 2 cu-ft larger than the Corolla and 0.9 cu-ft bigger than the Hyundai Elantra. It remains 1.9 cu-ft more in its trunk volume than the Mazda 3 for yet another year. 

Verdict

Despite being on sale for over decades, the Honda Civic is still one of the best compact sedans in the market, offering a unique combination of dynamics, comfort, and performance. While the exterior styling may look overdone from some angles, the cabin is accommodating and comfortable with plenty of features on offer. However, the infotainment system continues to be a sore point in an otherwise excellent package. Overall, if you want a compact car that’s light on the pocket and holistic in return, look no further than the 2021 Honda Civic.
