2014 Honda Civic Coupe - The New Breed

It's about time we get some new cars that we can tinker with, tune, and show off.

Most of you probably don't even realize it but car models come in generations. A generation of a car is the years that a certain model platform is produced. Within those generations you will most likely lots of minor revisions year-to-year and then one major revision in the middle. These revisions are called refreshes in the industry. To you guys, you call them zenki, kouki, and sometimes even chuki but for us we just say a car has a refresh. The usual refresh for cars come in the form of changing the lights and bumpers.

The 2014 Honda Civic Coupe is however an exception to this. From frist glance you'll notice the headlights and bumper are different from the 2013. But if you look further you'll notice the entire frontend is different. Now even fenders have been changed, giving the Civic an aggressive sportier arch. On the rear the lights have been updated as well as the rear bumper with an updated diffuser look. Turning up the sportiness didn't stop at the exterior, Honda added a push button start option and a 7" touchscreen display. Engine exhaust changes yield a +3 increase in horsepower while chassis improvements made the Civic Coupe more rigid and solid. For the automatic lovers a new Continuously Variable Timing (CVT) transmission will bring up mpg to 33.

If you're considering getting a new Civic, just remember this is the country's best selling compact car for a reason. And whether you chose manual or automatic, you will enjoy. We test drove both and the automatic felt great. We'd suggest getting one in one of the new colors; Modern Steel Mettalica or Orange Fire Pearl.
