Did you know that the new Honda Civic is considered a fan-favorite among eco-conscious drivers? The MPG ratings for both the city streets and highways are impressive. There are five trims available with the Civic, and each has the efficiency and power Union drivers are looking for and expect.

MPG Ratings Per Civic Trim

At VIP Honda, it’s our goal to help find the Honda Civic that fits your needs the best, and that includes fuel-efficient vehicle. Below is a quick look at the Honda Civic mpg ratings per trim.

  • Civic LX: EPA-estimated 28 mpg city/40 mpg highway* rating
  • Civic EX: EPA-estimated 31 mpg city/40 mpg highway* rating
  • Civic EX-T: EPA-estimated 31 mpg city/42 mpg highway* rating
  • Civic EX-L: EPA-estimated 32 mpg city/42 mpg highway* rating
  • Civic Touring: EPA-estimated 32 mpg city/42 mpg highway* rating

The Honda Civic LX, EX, and EX-T have the available continuously variable transmission (CVT) rather than the standard 6-speed manual. With the CVT, you can expect an increase in the fuel economy to an EPA-estimated 31 mpg city/40 mpg city* rating for the LX and EX, and up to 32 mpg city/42 mpg highway* for the EX-T. The EX-L and Touring come standard with the CVT.

Two Honda Civic Engines with Eco Assist System

The 2018 Honda Civic Sedan has two engine options available: The 2.0L 4-cylinder that produces 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque, and the 1.5L turbo 4-cylinder that generates 174 hp and 162- to 167 lb-ft of torque. Also included is the Eco Assist System, which allows South Plainfield drivers to save fuel in two ways:

  • The system’s color-changing display informs you about how fuel-efficient your driving habits are. If it’s shown green, it’s efficient, and blue means you’re most likely wasting fuel.
  • The Eco Assist System can have the ECON button available, and when pushed, it changes the Civic’s performance profile to conserve fuel.
