Through 11 generations and more than half a century, the Honda Civic has become a mainstay of Canada’s compact car marketplace thanks to a reputation for durable build quality, thrifty fuel economy, and engaging performance.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
Following the 11th-generation’s introduction as a 2022 model, the Civic sedan carries forward unchanged for 2023.
Honda sells the Civic sedan in LX, EX, Sport, Touring, and Si trims. The first three use a 2.0L four-cylinder engine, while Touring and Si get a 1.5L turbo four-cylinder. A continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) is standard in all but the Si, which comes exclusively with a six-speed manual.
LX gets 16-inch steel wheels with covers, a 7.0-inch digital gauge display, automatic A/C, passive keyless entry, heated front seats, an eight-speaker stereo, and a 7.0-inch touchscreen.
Also included are a bunch of driver safety assists: forward collision mitigation, lane departure warning, traffic sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, and lane keeping assist.
EX adds 16-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone A/C, and a heated steering wheel.
Sport gains 18-inch wheels, and leatherette/cloth upholstery.
Touring adds low-speed braking control, rear cross-traffic alert, a 10.2-inch digital gauge cluster, trunk opening assist, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, front and rear parking sensors, wireless phone charging, a power driver’s seat, heated rear seats, leather upholstery, 12-speaker audio, and a 9.0-inch touchscreen with navigation.
Si gets dual tailpipes, a trunk spoiler, and matte black wheels.
Honda’s fuel consumption estimates are 7.7/6.0 L/100 km (city/highway) for LX and EX trims, 7.8/6.3 L/100 km in Sport trim, 7.6/6.1 L/100 km for Touring models, and 8.7/6.4 L/100 km in Si form.
