While the development of the Civic Coupe, together with the Civic Sedan, was led by a North American team – a first for Honda and Civic – the overall Civic series involves design and engineering teams from Honda R&D, as well as sales and manufacturing operations from around the world, especially in North America and Japan, but also in Europe, South America and Asia.
In seeking to realize a “dynamic rejuvenation” of Civic and create a new interpretation “in a league of its own,” as the development team defined its mission, Honda engineers set out early during platform development to benchmark the world’s best C-segment vehicles—not only products in Civic’s traditional competitive set, but luxury compact class vehicles as well.
Their evaluation of the world’s best products involved extensive real-world testing, ultimately targeting European luxury vehicles for the new Civic’s ride, handling, steering and NVH (noise, vibration and harshness), and also its interior quality and refinement.
Achieving these lofty aims while meeting requirements for an affordable compact car, in terms of cost, fuel efficiency and manufacturability, stretched the limits of the global Civic team’s engineering capability and demanded new thinking and new approaches to body construction, vehicle aerodynamics, powertrain and chassis design. The result of these efforts is a completely reimagined and reinvented new Civic, the sportiest Civic ever, and a new benchmark in the compact class in terms of spaciousness, fuel efficiency, safety features, interior quality and dynamic performance.
With many design features introduced on the Civic Sedan, the Civic Coupe takes the sporty styling and dynamic capabilities of the sedan even further for a unique performance coupe experience that is both stylish and fun to drive, but also surprisingly spacious for its compact exterior and feature packed. The new Civic Coupe is athletic, charismatic and connected.
Virtually everything about the 2016 Civic Coupe is new – an all-new vehicle architecture, sporty and sophisticated new interior and exterior styling, a more spacious and high-quality cabin, two advanced new engines, and a host of new premium features and technologies.
Further, with the addition of Honda Sensing™ safety and driver-assistive technologies on the Touring trim and the first application of Honda turbo engine technology to Civic on the EX-T and above trims, the 2016 Civic Coupe offers buyers a wider range of options than ever before. Civic models powered by the new 2.0-liter i-VTEC™ engine are designated as the Civic LX and LX-P trims. Civic models powered by the new turbocharged 1.5-liter engine are designated as the EX-T, EX-L (with leather-trimmed interior) and new line-topping Civic Touring, which reaches higher into the upper end of the compact car market than ever before.
