Car Review: 2014 Honda Civic Touring
Armed with a new automatic transmission, the latest Honda Civic is still Canada’s compact car sweetheart. The Honda Civic has been one of the best-selling automobiles in the compact segment for the better part of four decades. During this period, the company has continued to refine the car and move it decidedly upmarket. The top-of-the-line Touring model is so well equipped that I almost got out to check the nameplate. The interior was luxuriously appointed and packed with high-tech features, including leather seating surfaces, LCD display panels, and a selection of camera systems.
With its reputation for reliability, safety, comfort and excellent resale still intact, the 2014 Honda Civic remains one of the best small-car values around.
Although it’s classified as a compact economy car, the 2014 Honda Civic is a surprisingly adept performer, capable of hugging the asphalt with all the grip one would expect of an agile sports car. Credit goes to the next-generation ACE II body structure that adds strength while reducing weight. The Civic’s steering feel is spot-on, nicely weighted and never lose or vague. Most impressive is the Civic’s civilized ride and quiet cabin, two attributes usually sacrificed in the name of improved performance. The Civic is one of those rare cars that actually feels like a part of you when driving; its overall driving dynamics is a key reason we consider it one of the best small-car buys today.
INTERIOR: While its unusual dash layout might not convey the more upscale ambiance of new and newly relevant nameplates, the 2014 Honda Civic continues to be one of the best compact cars in terms of interior space, storage and outward visibility. Its ergonomics is nearly flawless, and most of the controls are a cinch to operate. The interior is very comfortable, and Honda’s designers have done an excellent job of insulating the passenger cabin from road, wind and engine noise. There is seating for five, and the Civic features a full complement of storage nooks and cup-holders. The trunk is large enough for Costco runs, and the rear seatbacks fold forward should larger items need to be stowed.
EXTERIOR: While these modest cosmetic alterations might escape the eye of the casual observer, it’s hard to argue against sticking to a styling strategy that has helped keep the Civic at or near the top of the sales charts for many years running.
LANEWATCH BLIND-SPOT DISPLAY – this blind-spot warning system employs a tiny camera on the passenger-side mirror that activates when the turn signal is engaged. An image of the right lane is projected onto the display screen, revealing an area four times larger than is covered by the side mirror.
7-INCH DISPLAY AUDIO – Honda has been playing catch-up when it comes to in-car infotainment, but with its new Display Audio touch screen, that gap is now gone. The new system can be paired with an iPhone, deliver news, social media and apps connection with HondaLink, and access Pandora and SMS texting (when equipped with Navigation).
The 2014 Honda Civic has one of the simplest powertrains of the newest compact sedans. It does, however, gain a new CVT automatic (replacing last year’s 5-speed unit) giving it exceptional fuel economy and plenty of power.
The Canadian-made Honda Civic deserves a spot on your short list if you are looking for an efficient car with obvious build quality.
