The 2017 Honda Civic Sedan Offers Incredible Performance

Honda Civic Side

The 2017 Honda Civic Sedan can walk the line between engaging performance and satisfying efficiency ratings like almost no other compact model on the market. Power comes on fast to let you zip through the city, but you’ll find that your ride stays calm and composed when you need to really hit the gas to keep up or make passes on the highway. The Civic Sedan really is the best of both worlds, and it uses two available power engine options and transmissions to make such performance possible.

Engine Options

The Civic has always been the model that drivers are attracted to if they want to combine the energetic performance of a coupe with the dimensions of a compact sedan. The 2017 continues to live up to those expectations, with even standard models benefiting from a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine capable of putting 158-hp and 138 lb.-ft. of torque at your disposal.

If you’d like to turbocharge your output, opt for the available 1.5L turbocharged four-cylinder. Able to generate up to 174-hp and 167 lb.-ft. of torque, it puts the Civic Sedan’s output on par with many midsize models. Packing such punch with only the weight of a compact to deal with, the 1.5L engine allows for lightning responsiveness and agility.


No matter your choice of engine, you’ll enjoy the freedom to selection between one of two high-end transmission systems.

  • Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT): Representing the next-generation of transmission technology, CVT systems use an innovative belt system to replicate the efficiency of manual while retaining the convenience of automatic. You can expect up to a sensational 31 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway with the 2.0L or a staggering 32 mpg city and 42 mpg highway with the 1.5L*.
