2014 Honda Civic Si – every 2014 Civic will again come with a rearview camera, USB and Bluetooth connectivity, and SMS text readout. That’s in addition to power windows, tilt/telescope steering wheel with audio and Bluetooth controls, front center console, and cruise control.
The most significant change would be a six-speed automatic transmission. But a persuasive school of thought holds that Honda will stay with the five-speed automatic until the model-year 2017 Honda Civic Redesign.
Si versions will repeat with bolstered front buckets and a sport-tuned suspension and exhaust system. Expect “Navi” versions of the 2014 Civic EX, EX-L, Si, and Hybird to again feature a voice-activated navigation system with a 6.5-inch screen in place of the 5-inch iMID display.
Expect the 2014 Honda Civic Si sedan and coupe to continue as the line’s sporty choices. 2014 Civic Si versions will likely repeat with a six-speed manual as their only transmission. Their 2.4-liter should again rate 201 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque. Performance versions of most rivals have more power, but Si Civics parlay their balanced approach into an engaging driving experience.
2014 Civic Hybrid sedan
2014 Civic Hybrid sedan will combine a gas engine and an electric motor for an anticipated 110 net horsepower and 127 pound-feet of torque. The Civic Hybrid uses its electric motor primarily to take some burden off the gas engine during acceleration. It’s not a plug-in hybrid and can’t accelerate on electric power alone.
Also returning as standard will be Honda’s intelligent Multi-Information Display, or i-MID, a 5-inch dashboard screen for various audio, trip, and fuel-economy readouts. It also furnishes performance data on Si models and electric-power and fuel-economy details on Hybrids.
Overall, expect the 2014 Civic LX to be priced at $19,200 with manual transmission and around $20,200 with automatic. Figure 2013 Civic HF versions to be priced around $20,700, EXs around $21,800, EX-Ls around $23,300 and Si models around $23,700.
Look for the 2013 Civic Hybrid to be priced around $25,300. And expect to add around $1,500 to equip an eligible 2014 Civic with the navigation system.
