2018 Honda Civic review: Our expert's take

What it is: The Honda Civic is a front-drive compact car available in sedan, coupe and four-door hatchback body styles, the latter added for 2017. It competes with the Chevrolet Cruze, Ford Focus, Hyundai Elantra, Nissan Sentra and Toyota Corolla.

The sedan and coupe are available with a choice of a 2.0-liter four-cylinder or a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine, while the hatchback comes only with the 1.5-liter turbo. A six-speed manual transmission is standard on LX and EX-T models and the Sport hatchback, and a continuously variable automatic transmission is optional. The CVT is standard on other trims.

The sedan and coupe are also available in performance Si trim with a 205-horsepower version of the 1.5-liter turbo engine; that’s 31 hp more than in other models. The hatchback also comes in ultra-performance Type R form with a 306-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter engine. A six-speed manual is the only transmission available for Si and Type R models.

There are no significant changes.

Really great Civic...

I've had my 2018 Honda Civic hatchback sport for a couple of years now. I bought it used with low mileage and had it looked over by my mechanic and the only issue was the AC wasn't working. Had the dealer fix it and it's been working fine. This would be my 2nd Honda and love it!


Vehicle in and out multiple issues with ac system.

If u like cols ac in the summer do not get these cars their ac systems leak everywhere iam very disappointed 2018 hatch 40000 miles


Bad AC's

Bought my daughter a 2017 Civic thinking Honda would be dependable car for her till she's independent. Had a car less than a year and the condenser went out. Honda covered it under an extended warranty they put on those. At Christmas a truck hit her and totaled her car. With insurance money got her a 2018 civic hoping we'd have better luck. Nope. Compressor is broke. $2000 to fix and only the dealer can fix it as local people don't have that type of refrigerant and if they do they charge that same as dealer. Both cars had very low miles this 2018 has 60K.
