“DX is pretty limited”
“Mugen Si sedan [has] no optional equipment”
Car and Driver
“little touches are what makes Honda a winner”
Reviewers at TheCarConnection.com were impressed with the level of standard and optional features available on the Honda 2008 Civic sedan.
The Honda 2008 Civic sedan comes in DX, LX, EX, and EX-L trim levels. Price and features differentiate all of these, but Honda has included many standards for all Civics. Edmunds comments that the DX is good if you are on a budget, since it offers "power windows, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel and a height-adjustable driver seat," but for more options, you’ll have to move to a higher grade.
The popular midgrade Honda 2008 Civic LX, however, comes with a more impressive package of features. It has "16-inch steel wheels, air-conditioning, full power accessories, keyless entry, cruise control and a four-speaker CD/MP3 audio system with an auxiliary audio jack," according to Edmunds. The EX Sedan gets distinct alloy wheels, a sunroof, and an available navigation system with XM Satellite Radio.
The Honda 2008 Civic EX-L comes with leather upholstery and heated front seats. Edmunds notes that the Civic Si has most of the EX's features, "plus a high-output engine, sport-tuned suspension, 17-inch alloy wheels, a premium audio system and special interior trim."
While standard Honda 2008 Civic sedans get blue interior lighting, the Si version has “red-lit two-tiered gauges,” Cars.com reports. “These little touches are what makes Honda a winner among the set that buys high-performance vehicles like this,” they add.
Options on the Honda 2008 Civic include satellite radio and a navigation system on the Si and EX. Car and Driver points out that the “Mugen Si sedan [has] no optional equipment.”
The Honda 2008 Civic sedan has good standard features; high-buck versions have high-end options like navigation systems.
