2018 Honda Civic is KBB’s Small Car Best Buy of 2018
Out of the small car segment available in 2017, Kelley Blue Book chose the 2018 Honda Civic as its Small Car Best Buy* of 2018! The excellence in technology, features, comfort, value, and reliability have kept the Civic on KBB’s list for quite a while. The newest 2018 iteration continues to raise the bar and entice new drivers and critics to love the Civic.
In a segment that tries to appeal to a huge audience, Kelley Blue Book found that the 2018 Honda Civic is one of a few cars that really succeeds. It manages to offer safety and excitement, driving performance and comfort, power and efficiency, all with excellent value. It’s poised and adaptable to many driving situations, and it’s comfortable and compliant on the highway. When you find a fun, curvy back road, the Civic reveals some sportiness, too.
The 2018 Honda Civic comes with a standard 158-horsepower 2.0L engine. There’s also a 1.5L turbocharged engine available, which gives you 174 horsepower. Either engine is paired with your choice of a six-speed manual or Honda’s trusty CVT transmission. The powertrain is smooth and capable of handling any demands, with plenty of speed to merge and pass easily. It also has firm, responsive braking, which gives you extra confidence and safety on the roads. The Civic’s handling feels natural: pleasantly predictable but still fun to engage with on open roads. Its performance includes excellent fuel economy, too.
The Civic offers great safety features, as well. Honda’s excellent safety suite comes standard on all but the LX trim on the 2018 Honda Civic. Honda Sensing includes forward-collision warning, collision-mitigation braking, and lane-departure warning safety features. It also gives you driver-assist features including lane-keep assist and adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow. The Civic is known for rock-solid reliability, too, so your 2018 Honda Civic will be with you for years to come.
The Civic’s interior is filled with awesome features for passengers, too. It offers great interior space, with enough room in the rear for KBB’s six-foot-five test passenger. The interior is attractively designed and decked out in premium materials. Both driver and passengers will be comfortable in Honda’s supportive seats even on long drives or commutes. The 2018 Honda Civic offers lots of luxury touches and available features, too, like the heated front and rear outboard seats offered on the Touring trim. On every trim, you’ll get standard features like USB and Bluetooth phone connectivity, as well as a tilt-telescoping steering wheel. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard on every trim except the base LX, so you can take your music on the road.
The Civic also won KBB’s favor through its versatility and variety of options. The 2018 Honda Civic sedan offers five trim levels, two engines, and two transmission to choose from. There’s also a Honda Civic coupe for customers who prefer a sportier two-door. Honda also offers a Civic hatchback, with five-door versatility and a go-getter performance. For those who want the hot-hatch attitude, Honda cracks up the performance on the 2018 Honda Civic Si and Type R hatchback, too!
