With our daughter driving now (she gets the mini-van) my wife and I decided that we needed another car. We decided to lease a 2016 Honda Civic EX-L This is what it looks like (Sorry, didn't take pics last night so not the actual car). I'm very impressed by this car. I think it's very good looking and Honda did a fantastic job in making a car I would want to drive. It has that fastback aggressiveness to it that I find appealing. So how's it drive, not like a Civic at all! The EX-L comes with the 1.5 liter turbo charged VTEC that is quick and has enough torque to push you into your seat. I think it's rated at 178 hp. There is that slight lag from a stopped position, but when the turbo kicks in and you keep the turbo winding up you forget it's a 4 cylinder engine and start paying attention to what is happening on the road. Car & Driver said they clocked it at 6.8 seconds from 0-60. Granted, that's not mind blowing, but remember, it's a Civic! You can drive in 3 modes. Economy, normal, and sport. In sport mode, the Civic keeps the car's RPM's up and the Turbo spinning for at-will torque. We have a 2.5 liter Mazda CX-7 and there is no way in hell it will keep up with the Civic, not even close and the Mazda is a fun crossover SUV to drive. It is also very comfortable. The EX-L has leather appointments and front heated seats. The seats are very comfortable. I'm 260, and feel right at home. It also offers plenty of leg room for a taller driver. The back seat isn't huge, but there is plenty of headroom for most riders. Technology at this point in cars is astounding and the Civic has loads of it. Everything now is touch screen. There are very few "buttons" and dials. The car has Apple Car Play or Android Auto, just plug in your phone of choice and it automatically recognizes the type of phone. You then can make calls, texts, get directions and use the built in GPS all hands free. The touchscreen is very nice and works like most tablets. One con I do have is I wish there was a volume knob. Instead there is a dedicated volume slider that you slide your finger up and down on, or, you tap the + or - symbols to adjust the volume. The steering wheel does have a volume control which I find easier to locate when driving. Bluetooth is of course there along with, HD radio, satellite, etc., But there are a ton of other features. In fact, you can download apps to the car if you connect it to WIFI (Which I haven't tried yet). I'm going to try and get some pics of it later today, but I had a few minutes this morning to share.
