2013 Honda Civic Review

Reviewed by Automotive on

Vehicle Overview

The 2013 Honda Civic compact sedan receives a severely refreshed interior thanks to the constructive criticism it has received when it was redesigned for the previous model year. The cheap plastics that covered the interior on the previous model have been replaced with upgraded materials, giving the new Civic a more high-end feel. The 2013 Honda Civic is powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that can be paired with either a manual or automatic transmission. Other powertrain options include a 1.5-liter four-cylinder hybrid engine and a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that is available on the Civic Si model.

In a recent road test, the 2013 Honda Civic improved on every aspect that has been under criticism. The Civic has a planted and quiet ride, with a near-silent cabin when driving around town. Honda further refined the 2013 Civic with a standard cloth-lined trunk to help with road noise. However, the Civic is missing a direct-injected engine with a continuously variable transmission, but the engine that it does have is competitive and offers decent fuel economy. "We wouldn't recommend the 2012 Honda Civic to a friend--and maybe not even to an enemy. But we'd be remiss if we didn't put the 2013 Honda Civic at the top of our list."

The 2013 Honda Civic is available as a coupe and sedan, with the coupe offering seven models: LX, LX PZEV, EX, EX PZEV, EX-L, EX-L PZEV, and Si. The sedan offers nine models, the LX, LX PZEV, HF, HF PZEV, EX, EX PZEV, EX-L, EX-L PZEV, and Si. The Honda Civic is also available as a hybrid, with two models, the Hybrid and Hybrid PZEV. The 2013 Honda Civic has earned an IIHS Top Safety Pick + safety rating, and is one of the only compact cars to achieve this rating.

New for 2013

The 2013 Honda Civic receives an extensive refresh for the new model year, as well as new standard features including Pandora, Bluetooth, rearview camera, and steering wheel audio controls.
