If you’ve been searching for a compact sedan or hatchback, you won’t find a model that has consistently satisfied buyers across the country like the Honda Civic. The 2021 Civic continues to be one of the most popular vehicles in its class, thanks to its balanced handling, spacious interior, exceptional fuel economy and long list of safety features. Customers at the Honda dealer in the Bay Area tell us they also appreciate the 2021 Honda Civic’s upscale interior materials.
The 2021 Honda Civic is offered in five trim levels: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L and Touring. According to the Bay Area Honda dealer, the LX and Sport are equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine generating 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque. The EX, EX-L and Touring are powered by a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque. Both powerplants are teamed to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) that sends power to the front wheels, although the Sport hatchback gets a standard manual transmission.
Fuel economy is excellent. The 2021 Civic gets up to an EPA-estimated 31 mpg city/40 mpg highway with LX, EX and EX-L hatchback models and the automatic gearbox.

The 2021 Honda Civic gets excellent reviews. Edmunds wrote: “New small sedans come out every year, but none has been able to unseat the Honda Civic as our favorite model car since it was introduced back for the 2016 model year. Things aren't much different for this year's model... The 2021 Honda Civic continues to offer a compelling mix of performance, comfort and practicality at a price point that is in line with the rest of the class.”
Standard features for the base LX include 16-inch wheels, LED daytime running lights, automatic climate control, a 5-inch color infotainment screen, Bluetooth and a USB port.
