4. More standard equipment
The 2013 Civic gets additional standard features to help sway the decision of a prospective buyer. Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity is now standard on the base LX model, as is a rear-view camera and Honda’s i-MID display.
For those wondering, the old 2012 Civic had a very basic level for $15,955, called the DX. For 2013 that model has been dropped, with the nicely equipped LX being the new base model. Unfortunately this does mean the new price of entry for the Civic is substantially higher at $18,165.
