The 2017 Honda Civic at Gates Honda
It’s time to settle the age-old question: Can you be fun and practical at the same time? At Gates Honda, we think that the 2017 Honda Civic has finally solved this question for us, and the answer is a resounding “Yes!” The Honda Civic has long been considered a leader of the compact car class, but the refreshed 2017 model only solidifies our opinion that you can have your cake and eat it too when it comes to driving in the Berea, KY area.
The 2017 Honda Civic sedan is a sporty four door compact car that looks great and drives beautifully. The sedan is available in five trim levels: LX, EX, EX-T, EX-L, and Touring. All models come standard with an efficient in-line 4-cylinder engine of varying horsepower. The LX and EX models are able to produce 158 horsepower, while the other trims receive 174 horsepower thanks to direct fuel injection. The base LX and the sporty EX-T trims have a six-speed manual transmission, while the other trim levels come with an automatic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). All models come standard with the Eco Assist™ System to increase fuel economy, hill start assist, and meet all CARB Emissions ratings.
The interior of the 2017 Honda Civic is much more spacious than many think it would be. The total cargo volume is 15.1 cubic feet, which allows for a comfortable and spacious ride for up to five people and all their belongings. The Honda Civic is also an incredibly safe vehicle, with an entire suite of airbags to keep every occupant safe, as well as a host of available driver assist technology. Adding the optional Honda Sensing™ suite of safety and driver-assist tech includes features like lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, the Collision Mitigation Braking System™, and road departure mitigation system will ensure that you and your passengers are protected no matter what.
Technology inside the cabin is equally impressive. All models come standard with power windows and locks, cruise control, electronic remote trunk release, and a rear window defroster. The Honda Civic also comes standard with Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink and Streaming Audio, speed-sensitive volume control, and a USB port. Every trim but the LX also features a 7-inch display audio with touchscreen, Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, HondaLink®, SiriusXM® Radio, and is Pandora® Radio compatible so you can rock out to your favorite tunes when you’re driving around Lexington, KY.
