143-hp, 1.8-liter, 16-valve, SOHC i-VTEC® Engine

The 1.8-liter, single overhead camshaft, aluminum-alloy i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine uses state-of-the-art engineering technology to produce an impressive 143 hp (SAE net), yet it still achieves excellent fuel efficiency[1] and a Partial Zero-Emission Vehicle (PZEV) rating[2], all on regular gasoline.

[2] CVT models are PZEV-rated in California and states that have adopted California Zero-Emission Vehicle regulations. CVT models in non-CARB states and MT models in all 50 states are ULEV-2-rated.



 

Eco Assist™

One thing every Civic driver has in common? The need to maximize efficiency. Honda’s Eco Assist™ feature helps you accomplish the task with helpful blue and green "coaching bars" on either side of the speedometer. Stay in the green, and you could go farther on a full tank of gas.



 

ECON Button

Just push the big green button. In ECON mode, the Civic's engine and other energy-consuming systems are automatically configured to operate more efficiently. Need more zip? Push it again to return to regular mode.
