The introductory trim of the Civic won’t overextend your budget, yet it still comes with a long list of standard features. These include automatic climate controls for perfect cabin temperatures, cruise control to help you relax on long drivers, and a rearview camera to easily drive in reverse. These same features are available on the Elantra, but you will have to pay more for a higher trim level.
