Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

From the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, Cars.com's Kelsey Mays takes a look at the 2014 Honda Civic.

Vehicle Overview

Facing criticism of its redesigned Civic sedan, Honda significantly updated the compact car for the 2013 model year. For 2014, the Civic coupe's exterior styling gets a makeover and both body styles gain new available technology features. The Civic's many competitors include the Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Focus, Toyota Corolla and Hyundai Elantra.

New for 2014
New technology features include a 7-inch touch-screen stereo, Honda's unique LaneWatch blind spot monitor and push-button start. Also available is the HondaLink system, which provides smartphone integration with the car. The available automatic transmission has been replaced by a continuously variable automatic that helps improve the car's fuel efficiency.

In addition to revised styling, the Civic coupe's suspension has been updated with higher spring rates and a stiffer rear stabilizer bar. Most models have slightly higher engine output thanks to a retuned exhaust system.

The performance-oriented Civic Si, which is offered in coupe or sedan form, gets larger 18-inch wheels and its suspension tuning is new, too, with higher spring rates, new dampers and a stiffer rear stabilizer bar.

Exterior Highlights

  • New coupe styling with specific cues for Si model
  • 15- (sedan) or 16-inch (coupe) steel wheels with covers; 15-, 16-, 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels available
  • Body-colored door handles and mirrors; heated mirrors available
  • Available fog lights
  • Available power moonroof

Sporty, sexy, excellent mpg, not for long trips

by Bucknut89 on December 4, 2018

I really like the digital speedometer. I love the design of this car. I think it has a much better design than the 2018 Civic Sport with its odd/goofy lookin rear. The speaker quality is great. There ... Read full review

I'm 6'2 and this coupe has wide doors and easy in and out. The engine has some giddy-up and runs on regular. Really great control of the car with the stick shift. 85000 miles no problems, no repairs. ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
