Honda Civic raises the bar for concept sedans

At the Olympics, a floor assistant raises the bar for pole vaulting and the high jump. The 2016 Honda Civic sedan does the same thing for compact sedan buyers.

And that’s just the beginning. The all-new Civic, which was benchmarked against high-performance European sports sedans from BMW and Audi, will deliver other variations with even better capabilities, including a sleek hatchback sedan that resembles the Audi A7, a coupe, a Si sport model and a new Type R that promises to raise the adrenalin level even higher.

Rarely has a car been so trans-formed between model years, in this case morphing from a plain and reliable compact family car to an exciting road runner.

It does all this at prices that are lower than the average price of a new car sold today. Even the base trim, the LX, with a sticker price well below $20,000, tempts the enthusiast with a fluid shifting six-speed manual gearbox mated to the base 158-hp, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine.

That power plant is new, as is the first U.S. turbocharged motor from Honda – a 170-hp, 1.5-liter four with 162 lb-ft of torque and city/highway/combined mpg of 31/42/35. Unfortunately for now, that engine is available only with Honda’s continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), which despite its contribution to fuel economy turns off some enthusiasts.
