2015 Honda Civic at a Glance

You can’t really go wrong with a Honda Civic of this era, you just can’t expect to have a lot of fun behind the wheel.

The Honda Civic is among the most popular cars on the pre-owned market and with good reason. The 2015 Honda Civic was the last model-year of the 9th-generation Civic before Honda introduced the completely redesigned model with have today. The 2015 Civic was offered as an Si and a hybrid, but we will focus our attention on the more popular DX, LX, EX, EX-L and Touring models.

These were powered by a 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine with 143 horsepower and 129 pound-feet of torque. Honda used that engine for the better part of 3 years and the overall mechanics of the 2015 Civic hadn’t changed for roughly a decade. That means that the Civic wasn’t the most modern of compact sedans at the time, but in return its engine was reliable and performed diligently. With a combined fuel consumption rating of about 7.2 liters per 100 kilometers, it was also quite efficient.

The Honda Civic has become sportier and more fun to drive in recent years, but the 2015 edition put comfort first. It was among the quietest and most refined vehicles found in its segment, but it wasn’t the sharpest on a winding road.

There was no Honda Civic Hatchback version back in 2015, but the Civic sedan does have plenty of interior space up front. The rear seats are ok and the trunk, with 353 liters, is just average.
