2014 Honda Civic Hybrid review: Our expert's take

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 The available automatic transmission has been replaced by a continuously variable automatic that helps improve the car’s fuel efficiency.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.

2014 Honda Civic Hybrid

I bought a 2014 Honda Civic Hybrid six years ago at 60k miles and just traded it in this past weekend at 155k miles. It was a fantastic car. I can't say enough about the gas mileage. We could do 65 mph on the highway and it would get between 45-50 mpg. It is low to the ground, so tall people like me have a crouch a bit to get in. Durability during the time I owned it was great. Minimal problems. The only feedback I have is the CVT transmission started slipping occasionally at 150k miles. If you find a low mileage version, I would recommend you consider it.

I'll never buy a honda again. Hybrid battery died after owning car for 3 yrs. Put me in a bad spot. Scrambling trying to fix it. While keeping up with the payment is absolutely dreadful. I'm sorry I bought i this.

2014 Civic Hybrid

This car has been a disappointment in terms of gas mileage, comfort/amenities and power. I was looking for something along the lines of the EX-L variety, but was interested in the hybrid because of fuel economy. Sadly, fuel Econ has not been up to the advertised rates. The good news is that it does have good Honda reliability.
