Honda Announces 2016 Civic Coupe Pricing

With the 2016 Honda Civic coupe just recently being unveiled, Honda has posted the sleek two door's official pricing ladder. The aim is to keep the Civic Coupe a key player in providing enthusiast buyers a value-oriented dose of fun while outdoing rivals.

The base LX model will start at $19,885, a healthy $410 jump over the $19,475 Civic sedan and is a slight increase over the 2015 Civic Coupe's base price of $19,175. Despite the gains, this pricing does allow the Civic to remain competitive in a segment that caters to young buyers who need a fun-accented purchase without doubling down on a more expensive performance coupe offering. Honda tends to keep the features and amenities of the coupe model roughly in line with what is already seen on the sedan. This means that even base models come handsomely equipped, and arrive with goodies such as LED running lights, a five-inch infotainment system, and the same sensibly designed dashboard and center stack that has come to define the sedan.

Where the two door slightly differs is the exclusive $21,685 LX-P version which retains the LX's 2.0-liter 158 horsepower four-cylinder engine but hooks it up to a standard CVT transmission. In addition to the transmission, the LX-P provides a dash of luxury and comes with a power moonroof, keyless entry with built-in push-button start and remote engine start. This is a nice suite of equipment, but the standard CVT is one item that I would not have on this car especially since CVTs generally increase acceleration times, and sometimes show sluggish shifting behavior. If this description also describes you accurately, then the $23,135 EX-T trim may be just what the doctor ordered. In addition to equipment such as heated seats, automatic climate control, and a seven-inch infotainment system, the EX-T is the least expensive way that buyers can experience the all-new and highly praised 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Good for 174 horsepower and an equally stout 164 lb-ft of torque, this engine should add a much needed dose of aggression to the driving experience while serving as a temporary fix for performance buyers until the upcoming Si model arrives.

Rounding out the range are two range-topping models which appear to actually be cheaper than their four-door counterparts, according to the preliminary figures posted on Honda's website. The EX-L starts at $24,260 versus the $24,535 sedan version and brings standard leather upholstery and an auto-dimming rear view mirror to the Civic's diverse bag of tricks, while the range-topping Touring coupe's$26,960 includes standard features such as navigation, LED headlights, rain-sensing wipers, and heated mirrors. Like the EX-L, the Touring coupe holds a small edge in price when compared to the $27,335 Touring four door.

Look for more information to eventually trickle out once Honda formally launches the online configurator for the car, which will also show what it will roughly look like when specced out to your specifications.
