Will the 2016 Honda Civic Be Faster?
There has always been a lot to love about the Honda Civic platform. It has always delivered an exciting driving experience wrapped in a sporty, athletic package that comes at an affordable price. And while many good things must come to an end, you can rest assured that the Honda Civic will stand the test of time. The unveiling of the redesigned 2016 Honda Civic is a testament to the longevity and overall impressive performance of the Honda Civic that will keep this model around well into the future.
Current Honda Civic models here at Allan Nott are extremely popular, fun-to-drive options, but many of you still want to know — will the 2016 Honda Civic be faster — and with good reason. Just like it is exciting to unwrap a present at Christmas or see what toy you got in your McDonald’s Happy Meal, it is thrilling to see what is inside the new Honda Civic. Especially when what’s inside delivers a new level of speed and performance.
While the 2015 Honda Civic has always delivered an exhilarating drive, the 2016 Honda Civic promises even more with two all-new powertrains. A primary difference between Honda Civic models, the new base edition will employ a power-packed 2.0-liter i-VTEC four-cylinder powertrain that is the most powerful base model engine ever offered under the hood of the Civic. This news is made even more thrilling with the next piece of news — an all-new turbocharged and direct-injected 1.5-liter four-cylinder will be the first turbo ever used in a Honda Civic that was not a Civic Si.
So, what else is new for the 2016 Honda Civic? How about the first-ever Honda Civic Type-R in the United States? That’s right, for the first time ever, the Honda Civic Type-R will be available in the U.S., giving Lima-area drivers the chance to go from zero to 60 faster than your mother would approve of. This level of performance won’t be gained from horsepower alone and the 2016 Honda Civic will make it happen with an all new body and chassis.
Lighter, stronger, more rigid and more aerodynamic than its predecessor, the new Civic will undoubtedly be faster. With a design that is 2 inches wider, 1 inch lower and 1.2 inches longer, the new Honda Civic promises a more athletic and responsive drive. A low, wide platform with the wheels pushed to the corners will make the handling of the Civic even tighter, delivering an even more dynamic drive.
While no official performance specs have been released for the 2016 Honda Civic yet, all signs point to the 2016 Honda Civic being faster than previous editions. Keep an eye on the official Allan Nott Blog for more information on the Honda Civic and other upcoming, new and improved Honda models. If you want to get behind the wheel of the 2016 Honda Civic, look for it to find its way into the Allan Nott inventory later this fall.
