Paddle Shifters

The Civic makes shifting gears so much more fun with sports car-inspired paddle shifters (EX and EX-L). Mounted on the steering wheel, the paddles operate in two distinctive modes, standard and sport.



 

Drive-by-Wire Throttle System

The Drive-by-Wire throttle system helps enhance the driving character of the Civic Coupe. With smart electronics connecting the throttle pedal to the throttle butterfly valve in the intake manifold, the engine response can be optimized to suit the driving conditions and to better match the driver's expectations.
