2020 Honda Civic Sedan Review

2020 Honda Civic Sedan

If you’re like many drivers around Gulfport, Long Beach, and Biloxi, then the Civic may be one of the first cars that comes to mind when you think about sedans. It’s easy to understand why, as you’ll learn in this 2020 Honda Civic sedan review.

The truth is, this car is versatile, efficient, and high-tech, and the team at Pat Peck Honda is so excited to tell you more about it.

Versatile: Civic Sedan Dimensions

Honda Civic Interior
  • Width: 9 inches
  • Length:7 inches
  • Passenger volume:8 cubic feet
  • Front headroom/legroom:3/42.3 inches
  • Cargo volume:1 cubic feet

As a sedan, the Civic is agile and adept at maneuvering along tight or well-traveled streets. Its compact exterior spans just 70.9 inches in width and 182.7 inches in length.

Despite its compact size and aerodynamic exterior, the interior of this Honda sedan is roomy enough for everyone. It seats five passengers with ease in its 97.8 cubic feet of passenger volume. This includes 39.3 inches of driver headroom and 42.3 inches of driver legroom.

The trunk also features a spacious 15.1 cubic feet of cargo volume for luggage, sporting equipment, dance bags, or groceries. Of course, if you need more space, you can fold down the second row on select trim levels and extend your trunk into the cabin.

This is ideal when carrying longer items like hockey sticks and water skis.

Efficient: The Honda Civic Powertrain

The 2020 Honda Civic sedan gets a maximum EPA-estimated fuel economy of 32 MPG city and 42 MPG highway with the EX and EX-L trims when equipped with the CVT.1

This is impressive considering it gets these numbers with the available turbocharged I-4 engine under the hood. The turbocharged engine produces 174 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque. An I-4 engine without a turbocharger is available as well. It produces 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque.

On the Sport trim, this engine can come paired with either a 6-speed manual transmission or with an optional CVT. Otherwise, all other trim levels come standard with a CVT.

A CVT (continuously variable transmission) helps to improve fuel economy by doing away with the set shift points you find in traditional automatic transmissions. Instead, it allows for nearly infinite gear changes between the upper and lower limits to maximize efficiency and balance output.

Overall fuel economy varies based on trim level, transmission, and engine options.

High-Tech: Driver-Assist and Smart Safety Features

Honda Civic Safety

One of our favorite things to review about the 2020 Honda Civic sedan is the safety technology. That’s because every trim level comes standard with the Honda Sensing® suite, which includes technologies like:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™
  • Road Departure Mitigation System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow

These features are all designed to help improve drivers’ awareness of their surroundings while out on the road.

It comes standard with Auto High-Beam Headlights, too. These automatically toggle your high beams on and off based on the flow of oncoming cars or other traffic patterns like stoplights. This is a useful feature that lets you focus your attention on navigating dark back roads during low-visibility conditions, instead of constantly adjusting your headlights.
