2011 Honda Civic Coupe Review

The Car Connection Expert Review

The 2011 Honda Civic Coupe is nearly identical, mechanically, to the Honda Civic Sedan, but its sheetmetal, along with its silhouette and backseat accommodations, are a bit different.

The Civic Coupe is just a few inches shorter in wheelbase, which together with the more arched roofline means that backseat space is a bit more limited. Getting in and out, of course, is more of an issue as well, and being slightly shorter can bring out bounciness on some surfaces.

Equipment and trim levels on the Civic Coupe closely parallel those offered for the Sedan, with DX, LX, EX, EX-L, and sporty Si models offered. But the natural-gas-powered Civic GX and high-mileage Civic Hybrid models both only come in Sedan guise.

Most of the lineup comes with a 140-horsepower, 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine and either five-speed manual or automatic transmissions. Between these two, our favorite is the manual, which is especially light and precise; overall there's a lot to love in the standard Civic's driving experience, with a responsive, nimble feel and excellent steering.

I am very pleased with my '12 Civic Coupe, that is after I put beefier front and rear roll bars on it to improve the handling. With Michelin MXV4 tires, it is smooth and quiet. The mileage is over 40 mpg on... + More »

I bought this Civic Si Coupe in 2012 to replace a 2008 Civic Coupe (non-Si. What a difference a few HP makes - 140 to 201. Amazingly fun car to drive and no maintenance except for oil changes. I like this car!
