Honda Civic Vs
Three main focuses in mind –
The 2015 Honda Civic has three main focuses in mind – comfort, safety and fuel economy. While both the Civic and the Lancer have earned comparable safety ratings, the Lancer is a vehicle built for performance, more so than the Civic. For that reason, the Lancer’s sparse interior is deeply contradicted by the Civic’s comfortable cabin engulfed in soft-touch vinyl and featuring cozy, ergonomic seats. Beneath the surface enhancements have helped to improve the Civic’s ride quality as well. These include the addition of more high-strength steel, stiffer side pillars and thicker glass for both the windshield and the front side windows. Soundproofing has also been added to the doors, floor, dash and rear tray, making the cabin a lot quieter and more comfortable.
Technology comes together in the new Civic to both keep you safe and keep you entertained. Honda Sensing™ is a comprehensive system that goes beyond standard airbags and ABS brakes to mitigate or even downright avoid an impending collision. Such programs as a Lane Departure Warning System, Forward Collision Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control and Honda’s LaneWatch™ technology work tirelessly to make sure your Civic stays out of harm’s way while its multi-angle rear-view camera allows you to see exactly what is behind you when you’re backing up. While your Civic is keeping you safe, it is also keeping you connected with Bluetooth pairing for hands-free calling and audio streaming, text message reading technology and Pandora internet radio integration. Honda’s own HondaLink™ is an advanced infotainment system that controls various apps as well as the Civic’s navigation system.
Honda has built itself a name
As far as fuel economy goes, the Civic comes out leaps ahead of the Lancer. Honda’s new for last year’s CVT transmission combined with the brand-specific Econ Mode, you are looking at an average fuel rating of 33 combined miles per gallon. While the Civic’s hybrid model may sit on the pricier end of the spectrum, it more than makes up for it in the long run with its industry leading 45 combined mpg fuel rating. Hurting the Lancer in this area is that it doesn’t have any type of hybrid or fuel efficient model at all in its lineup, with its most economic model getting only 29 combined miles per gallon.
Honda has built itself a name for reliability, authenticity and security. The 2015 Honda Civic in Edmonton ads fuel efficiency and stylish design to that well-established reputation. If you are in the market for a car that doesn’t know the meaning of the word compromise, the new Civic SI the sporty family sedan that you have been looking for, and built by Honda, you know that you are getting yourself into a quality automotive.
