2016 Honda Civic Coupe Video Preview

November 18, 2015

The new 10th-generation Honda Civic sedan just went on sale a few weeks ago, and now it's time for the rest of the lineup to roll.

Next up: the new 2016 Honda Civic Coupe.

The new Civic Coupe is much sleeker and sportier than the previous version, with a long roofline like its four-door counterpart. It's longer, wider, and has shorter overhangs than the prior two-door Civic.

But it's really the rear end that stands out, with its wild, concept-car-like taillights.

Inside, the Civic Coupe is nearly the same as the sedan, with a neatly organized dash with lots of soft-touch materials and high-grade finishes. Some models feature a LCD screen in the gauge cluster, and all Civics now have a touchscreen infotainment system.

Like the sedan, the Civic Coupe will be offered with a 2.0-liter four with 158 horsepower. The step-up engine is a turbocharged 1.5-liter four with 174 horsepower. No matter which one is installed, power is sent to the front wheels through a continuously variable transmission. Yes, there's a manual transmission--but to #GiveAShift you have to be willing to live with the base four-cylinder. The Civic Si can't come soon enough.

The Civic's stepped up its safety game in the sedan, and those same features are available in the coupe, include blind-spot monitors and forward-collision warnings.

Other features include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, LED headlights, heated seats, and remote start.

Honda's being coy about pricing, but the new Honda Civic Coupe will go on sale in March of 2016. Stay tuned for more information and our first drive.
