DX, LX, EX, and Si versions of the Honda Civic (along with GX) cover all the bases. You can get what you want on the 2010 Honda Civic—even leather seats—provided you’re willing to step up to the more expensive trims and pay quite a bit more.

The base 2010 Honda Civic DX is pretty basic, with no air conditioning, but power windows and door locks and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel are standard on all models. The Civic LX has air conditioning, cruise control, power locks, a CD audio system with an auxiliary jack, and a folding rear seat. The EX sedan gets distinct alloy wheels, a sunroof, and an available navigation system with XM Satellite Radio. And although a leather-upholstered Civic seems a little odd, you can get exactly that, plus heated seats and mirrors, in the Civic EX-L edition.

Car and Driver notes that "the Si model is essentially outfitted the same as an EX," and the Honda Civic "GX is equivalent to the LX trim level."

Last year Honda significantly revamped the Civic’s feature list to make widely desired tech features more available throughout the lineup. Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and a USB audio interface, along with satellite radio and a nav system, are now offered—though in typical Honda fashion, you’ll need to step up to the most expensive EX versions to get all of it. The nav system in particular is a feature you won’t find on most other affordable vehicles in this class.

The navigation system "includes voice recognition and steering wheel-mounted controls," according to Cars.com.

Conclusion

The 2010 Honda Civic offers some truly standout features, but getting some of them—like the nav system or Bluetooth—requires stepping up to the most expensive models and a slew of features you might not need.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
