AutoGuide.com‘s Car of the Year Award

Colum Wood, AutoGuide Group Editorial Director, had this to say about the 2016 Civic: “The new Civic is easily the best all-around package I’ve driven, not just this year, but in a very long time. It’s premium, yet sporty, and I just love that new turbocharged engine. A car that’s this good, with Honda’s reputation for quality, reliability and durability, just doesn’t come along every day.”

Autoguide.com also praised the new Civic for its continued ability to provide a compact vehicle that is practical, efficient, safe, reliable, and versatile. In addition, the 2016 Honda Civic adds stunning style, technology, and performance, making it a clear segment leader.

Performance and Efficiency

The 2016 Honda Civic has been named the “AutoGuide.com 2016 Car of the Year” for many reasons, but two that stand out are its performance and efficiency. The 2016 model has had its powertrain refreshed with a new turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder engine that puts Billings and Laurel drivers in command of up to 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque. The 2.0L four-cylinder engine that comes standard delivers up to 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque. Efficiency remains extremely high in both engines:

  • A 2016 Civic LX with CVT can earn 31 mpg city and 41 mpg highway.*
  • A 2016 Civic EX-T with CVT can earn 31 mpg city and 42 mpg highway.*

Safe and Reliable

Another reason the Honda Civic is a leader is for the advanced safety technologies and features it makes available for Billings and Laurel drivers. Each 2016 Civic comes with an Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure that enhances the protection of you and your passengers, and in frontal collisions it distributes crash energy away from the front of the vehicle for even greater protection. You’ll also find a multi-angle rearview camera standard on the 2016 Honda Civic that allows you to reverse with confidence. Some of the available safety features include a Lane Keeping Assist System, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Honda LaneWatch.
