Honda has announced that the 2014 Honda Civic is getting more upgrades and changes, which is the second year in a row that Honda has given the current Civic significant updates, since it was introduced in 2012. To keep it fresh the 2014 Civic Coupe and Civic Si get some styling updates, the interior of all the Civic models has been refreshed and a new CVT replaces the former five-speed automatic transmission.
The 2013 Civic sedan received significant updates, so now its time for the 2014 Civici Coupe. The 2014 Civic Coupe gets a more aggressive grille, fender, hood and headlight design. Additional Civic Coupe exterior changes include new taillight lenses, sportier front and rear bumpers, new side mirrors and new wheel designs, with larger size wheels on some models. Inside, a host of premium interior refinements were applied to all models, including new seat fabrics, door panel trim and audio panel color coordination.
The Civic Coupe also receives additional performance enhancements, including revised suspension tuning with higher spring rates and a stiffer rear stabilizer bar. A revised exhaust system raises power output by 3 horsepower to 143 hp and 1 lb-ft of torque to 129 lb-ft.
The new CVT improves fuel efficiency with a 22 percent wider ratio range and reduced internal friction. The new CVT contributes to higher EPA fuel economy ratings of 30 mpg city and 33 mpg combined. The Civic HF is now rated at 42 mpg highway.
New standard and available features include a new 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen control center with optional navigation function, Smart Entry with Push Button start and Honda LaneWatch blind spot display.
