Technology Shines In The Civic Touring

The Honda Civic Touring Is Dripping With Technology


The new Honda Civic is much different than where it began in 1973.

Only 50-horsepower. How times have changed.


The Generation 10 version is a new and improved Civic.


And also a new competitor to the Toyota Corolla, the Mazda 3, the Ford Focus, and the Chevy Cruze.


There’s more power, more comfort, more space, more fuel-efficiency, and more style.


And that’s only the beginning.


This car is three inches longer, two inches wider, and 70 pounds lighter than the previous model.


No, I’m not joking.


Of course, there are new technology features, too.


Let’s talk about the Touring model.


Take a Tour:

Passenger side of Civic touring

This sleek machine steps above all previous Civic models.


The technology is kind of jaw-droppingly awesome.


It’s got adaptive cruise control, auto braking, and an aggressive assist system that helps keep the car in the lanes.


And if you’ve got Android Auto or Apple Car Play, it’s wired for those, too.


I know!


But what’s better than all of that you may ask?


Heated leather seats, a 450-watt sound system, and all for $27,335.


If you just heard a loud thud that was my jaw hitting the ground.


If you need to excuse yourself from reading this article to go test drive one of these expertly engineered monsters I would not be offended.

The Civic Touring is powered by a 1.5-liter turbo 4 with 174-horsepower (quite a ways from where it began in the 70s) and 162 pound-foot of torque.


And for all of you environmental buffs, the Touring has an EPA of 31 in the city and 42 on the highway.


Great visibility? You got it.


The LCD screen reveals blind spots to help you stay completely aware of your surroundings.


Want me to continue?


You got it!


Roomy backseats, all heated, and expanded room in the trunk.


Never has been transporting families and precious cargo been so easy. Seriously.


And the design.


The design of the new Civic screams confidence and style.


Like a fashion model strutting down the catwalk.


The new Civic is more than enough to satisfy loyal Civic owners, and to potentially rope in many new owners.


Pretty soon there will be a whole Civic army in Kenosha, WI.


And I personally don’t see anything wrong with that.
