Auto Review: 2016 Honda Civic shapes up with sportier ride

The 10th-generation Civic is sportier in styling and powertrain, making it less like the value-driven Hyundai Elantra and more like the sport-minded Mazda 3.

On the outside, Honda has adopted a more European design with a lower, coupelike roofline, but the floor is also lower, so headroom isn’t compromised. The body is nearly 4 inches longer, largely from the car’s distinctive front overhang, with sharp LED lighting and body paneling that circles the fog lights. The wheelbase, with sharp 17-inch alloy wheels, is an inch longer and the snubbed rear with a high spoiler makes it seem hatchback-like. But don’t worry, it’s no Crosstour. It’s a leaner, lower, sportier Civic.

There are two powertrains for now, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder or a direct injection 1.5-liter turbo four-cylinder. Both are mated to a continuously variable transmission, or CVT.
