The Honda Civic Has Something for Everyone

The Arlington area has a wide range of drivers, from professionals commuting into Seattle to college students headed to Everett. It also has its fair share of new drivers. You might wonder what these three groups have in common, but the answer is simpler than you might think. Each of these drivers needs a dependable and fuel-efficient car that also boosts confidence during the drive with advanced safety features. Along with that, it’s nice to check the comfort and convenience boxes as well.

If you fall into one of these categories or simply need a reliable car to run errands or handle your side hustle, we have the answer for you at Klein Honda, your Honda dealer near Arlington. The Honda Civic is the longest-running vehicle in the Honda lineup, first debuting in 1973. Since then, it has shifted in both exterior and interior design to meet the needs of the everyday driver and more. The Civic’s smaller size is great for navigating crowded metropolitan settings, and its reliability promises affordable maintenance costs, making it a great investment for younger drivers.

A Well-Rounded Compact Car

The 2024 Honda Civic offers two main variants: the sedan and the hatchback. Both options offer advanced technology that keeps you and your passengers connected during the drive. They also offer great fuel efficiency, with the Civic Sedan giving you an EPA-estimated fuel economy of up to 42 MPG on the highway.[a] Meanwhile, the Civic Hatchback provides you with an EPA-estimated 39 MPG on the highway with its most efficient engine and transmission combination.[b]

Each of these Civic options presents sleek lines and modern exterior styling with well-designed interiors that make the smallest vehicle in the Honda lineup feel and perform much bigger than it is. Additionally, they come with Honda’s suite of safety features, which gives you peace of mind as you travel from point A to point B. This collection, known as Honda Sensing, includes features to keep you safe and focused, whether you’re shopping at the Arlington Farmer’s Market down the road or your destination is much further away. Some of the safety features available in this collection are detailed below:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System: This system senses an impending collision and not only alerts you so that you can react and change course, but it also applies the brakes if you’re unable to do so in time.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System: You’ll feel a gentle nudge on the steering wheel when this system senses you’ve swayed too far out of your lane without signaling.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow: You can stay with the flow of traffic much easier with the assistance of Adaptive Cruise Control. This is perfect for new drivers or those who spend a lot of time commuting back and forth.
  • Traffic Sign Recognition: This system is crucial in unknown areas, alerting you of shifts in the speed limit and other important traffic changes.
  • Rear Cross Traffic Monitor: If you’ve ever tried navigating a busy parking lot, you understand the value of this system. It’s like a helping hand when you need it most, alerting you to traffic coming from either side so that you can reverse with confidence.

These are just a few of the safety features you’ll find on the 2024 Honda Civic. Our team can review each of these with you and answer any questions you have to ensure you find the right one for you.

2024 Honda Civic Sedan

The sedan has long lines that are accented with LED headlights and taillights, along with a fastback-inspired roofline. The look of the Civic Sedan gives you the feeling of cutting through the air with ease as it hugs the curves along your drive. Regarding the roofline, you can also boost your connection to the outside world and feel the wind pass by with the standard One-Touch Power Moonroof on the EX and Touring trims.

Inside, you’ll find that everything is right at your fingertips, thanks to the seven-inch color touchscreen that’s standard on three of the four trim options. For the top-tier Touring trim, you’ll find a nine-inch color touchscreen that includes a Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with Voice Recognition and Honda RealTime Traffic. This is complemented by a Bose Premium Sound System with 12 speakers, including a subwoofer.

Each of the four trims on the Honda Sedan gives you easy access to both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as a connection to HondaLink, which provides you with essential diagnostic information through compatible phones. Regardless of which trim you choose, you’ll have plenty of room for five passengers and generous trunk space for your cargo. However, when selecting the EX or Touring trim, you’ll also have a standard 60/40 split folding rear seat, while the lower two trims simply fold down as one seat.

Comfort and convenience are seen and felt throughout the sedan, with leather seats and a driver’s seat with eight-way power adjustment for the Touring trim. Heated front seats for chilly mornings are standard on the top two levels. In all four trim levels, you’ll find thoughtful storage options, charging ports, beverage holders, and more.

Honda Civic Si

The Honda Civic Si takes everything that’s great about the Civic Sedan and boosts it up a few notches, giving you dynamic performance, impressive horsepower, and a six-speed manual transmission that slips smoothly from one gear to the next, giving you more control along the way. Plus, the turbocharged 1.5L engine, along with the push-button three-mode driving system, offers targeted performance whether you’re in Normal, Sport, or your own Individual mode that you’ve customized to meet your needs.

2024 Honda Civic Hatchback

The Honda Civic Hatchback is another great option for Arlington drivers, especially if you need more cargo space. While the trunk on the sedan is generous, the hatchback gives you nearly ten additional cubic feet, with a total of 24.5 cu.ft. at your disposal. This is great if you’re a regular at the Boulder River Trail and want the extra space for your hiking gear.

Beyond that, you’ll also find that the Civic Hatchback lets you truly get a feel of the road, thanks to the optional six-speed manual transmission offered on the Sport and Sport Touring trims. You’ll also find a three-mode driving system similar to the Civic Si and Dual-Mode Paddle Shifters when choosing the standard automatic transmission for the Sport or Sport Touring trim level.

Like the Civic Sedan, the Civic Hatchback has four trim levels to choose from. Beyond the two mentioned above, you can also choose the LX or EX-L. The top two trim levels, the EX-L and Sport Touring, give you standard amenities like leather-trimmed heated front seats, a One-Touch Power Moonroof, a Blind Spot Information System, and Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control.

For comfort and convenience, all four trim levels are equipped with standard Push Button Start, multiple beverage holders, a 60/40 Split Fold-Down Rear Seatback, seating capacity for five, and a seamless connection to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Honda Civic Type R

Much like the Civic Si is the performance version of the sedan, the Civic Type R can be considered the souped-up version of the hatchback. The Civic Type R gives you many of the same great features you’ll find in the standard hatchback, but it focuses on performance with a powerful 2.0L turbocharged VTEC engine, six-speed manual transmission with Rev-Match Control, and Honda LogR data logger that provides you with vital information about how the car is handling so that you can boost your driving skills. The app gives you information on turning more efficiently, acceleration, and more.
