What’s New on the 2018 Honda Civic?
After heavy changes during the previous model year, the Civic rolls into 2018 as a carryover model. The compact car from Honda is available in three body styles: hatchback, coupe, and sedan. The sedan is the best-selling style out of the lineup, but the hatchback offers a hot model in the form of the Type R. The 2018 Civic Type R is generating tons of buzz with its edgy, aggressive styling and genuine performance features. There’s a 2.0L VTEC turbocharged engine under the hood of this hatchback that provides 306 horsepower. It’s just one of the many diverse models you will find in the 2018 Honda Civic lineup.
History of the Honda Civic
Believe it or not, the Honda Civic was the very first car that the automaker sold in North America. Before the Civic hit the market, Honda was better known for making motorcycles, but that would all change with this sedan. The 1973 Civic debuted in the U.S. with space for four passengers in comfort, a 50-horsepower 1.1-liter 4-cylinder engine, and front-wheel drive. At first, it was available as a two-door sedan or hatchback and it always had AM radio, front power disc brakes, and reclining bucket seats. The hatchback has taken a break throughout the years and will be returning this year after being discontinued in 2005. The Civic consistently grew throughout its generational changes and the 2016 model year marked the beginning of the 10th generation.
