2016 Honda Civic Coupe Brings Sexy Back


The 2016 Honda Civic Coupe has been revealed with sexy new curves. 

While much of the mechanical gear remains the same compared to the Civic sedan, the Coupe offers a sloped roofline and new proportions to make it the sexy option in the Civic lineup. The Coupe has a wheelbase that is 2.9 inches longer than the sedan, a 1.9 inch wider body, shorter overhangs and sits roughly one inch lower than the four-door car.

In the rear, a new rear tail light that sweeps across the entire deck lid has been included, while inside, space grows by 8.4 cubic feet compared to the previous car, while rear seat legroom is increased by five inches.

Soft-touch materials along with contrast stitching can be found throughout the interior while a new seven-inch display audio system sits in the dash. For technology, the coupe can be equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with the entire Honda Sensing suite of safety technology.

Just like the sedan, the 2016 Honda Civic Coupe will offer two engines, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque along with a new 1.5-liter turbocharged four pot that makes 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy for the turbo engine is pegged at 31 mpg in the city, 42 on the highway for a combined 35 mpg, while the 2.0-liter engine should get 31 mpg in the city and 41 on the highway for a combined 35.

Honda still has a few Civic variants under wraps, including the hatchback, Si and Type R models, which will be arriving sometime in the next year or so.

    Why cover up the duel exhausts.

  • Jamisonjon

    How they make the new Civic (sedan and coupe) have such a sweeping roofline but not make them hatchbacks, I have no idea. #trunksaretheworst

  • Rickers

    Because they were fighting?
    Get it?

  • Felix James

    They will offer a hatchback model soon you know…

  • Jamisonjon

    Yeah, I know. Just seems silly that the coupe and sedan aren’t hatches too, based on the shape. The American love for the less useful “trunk” confuses me.

  • smartacus

    wow! They found a way to unleash 158HP from only a 2.0??
    How do they do it?

  • Paul

    That massive amount of chrome in the grille looks awful. As for the rear end it looks like an Insight and an old Pontiac Sunfire got together.

  • Mariano Palmero


  • Jeff T

    Cannot believe this is bigger then the now mid sized sedan civic.

  • Jeff T

    I usually say there is more to a motor then peak hp figures but wow that is a sad number.

  • Mark S

    Leaving the pipes fot the Si and R maybes.

  • Dino

    I’m betting the hatchback version will not retain the sweeping roofline. For some reason manufacturers seem to think hatchbacks need to take on a frumpy “small wagon” format.

  • Glk1

    The front grill imitates Acura and the rest of it just looks like a Hyundai Tiburon!

  • Billy Cypher

    Hmm. It’s a matter of taste, but this doesn’t quite work for me.

    The profile is fine if a little bland, kind of looks like the Accord coupe. The rear and rear 3/4 views are fine, they kind of remind me of a Scion tC or Hyundai Tiburon. But that grill is too appliance-y and kind of reminds me of a really streamlined toaster.

    I liked how the previous Civic coupe was kind of a quirky looking wedge. The design of the new coupe seems unfinished somehow.

  • jbw9999

    The wheelbase is the same length as the sedan. 106.3″

  • danwat1234

    “While much of the mechanical gear remains the same compared to the Civic sedan” .. you mean all….

    Wish it had auto start/stop.

  • danwat1234

    Yeah the Volt is awesome with it’s hatch. Trunks are limited

  • Kaahk

    Good one and I think they r wanting the Si to look different too.

  • Kaahk

    I agree the rear reminds me of an old Sunfire.

  • tre916

    Meet the Honda Civic Veloster.

    Awful… Just AWFUL. Bring the 8th gen coupe back!

  • dariansdad

    That is fugly. Did I say fugly? I meant F U G L Y!!! I own a ’13 and I’m waaaaayyy better off.

  • dariansdad

    Because there are civilized people in the world who don’t wish to travel with their cargo along side them. Keep it in the “boot” where it belongs.

  • dariansdad

    Because DUEL means to fight and DUAL means two of a similar function. That’s why.

  • dariansdad

    If you think a Civic is mid-sized, you must also think your penis is over-sized. It’s a compact, fool.

  • Jeff T

    The civic has grow from 156 inches to 182. Sometimes I exagerate the length but never by 26 inches. The Honda accord at one time was 174 inches. Funny when the facts get in the way. 8 inches bigger then the accord….8 inches eh.

  • dariansdad

    You’re right and the Civic (before it was called that) was chain driven by a two-cylinder motor. Back then, the Accord was a compact car. Only in the 90’s did it achieve “mid-size” status as all the manufacturers were downsizing the offerings. Still, it’s the nature of the car builders to keep inflating the size of the cars in order to add a smaller replacement at the bottom, e.g., the Fit. 8 inches, heh heh, you wish, white boy.

  • DoctorFeelgoodMD

    Honda has another winner here and should sell very well.

  • Jamisonjon

    Now now, no need to imply that those who desire a more practical all-around vehicle are uncivilized. Plus, a “boot” is something to put your foot in to keep it warm and dry, a “trunk” is something to store cargo in 😉

  • Mark S

    The Focus RS looks pretty damned awesome as does both Golf MkVI and MkVII.

  • Mark S

    I think that is a misconception, hatches are getting more popular here. The line between CUV and hatchback is pretty blurred as well and CUV are hot sellers. A lot of outcry in the US when Subie dropped the WRX hatchback, just like the rest of the world.

  • dariansdad

    Sure, it may be impolite to throw aspersions at those who drive around like the whole car is a trunk but, really, would one keep the bed and stove in the garage? OK, maybe some of these hatchback yayhoos would 😉 BTW, I put boot in quotes because the OP put trunk in quotes. Belee me, I know where my foot stays warm and dry. And now that I re-read your reply I see that you agree with me where the cargo belongs! Cheers, mate.

  • Brandon Heller

    The back looks awful. There is way too much going on. Fake black vents serve no purpose. I’m disappointed that Honda couldn’t figure out a way to get more torque from the turbo.

  • Jamisonjon

    Oh yes, all in good fun. I’m just a dad with kids and too much stuff. Wish there were more options w a hatch that were fun to drive in the USA!

  • Jamisonjon

    ^my current dad car. 2004 is getting old, wish Mazda would import the 6wagon from Japan along w all the sedans they send over!

  • johnls39 .

    The back end of this coupe is absolutely ugly. What was Honda thinking here.

  • Jeff Snavely

    With every model, they grow bigger, heavier, and further from why the company became popular in the first place. Still though, fat and bland is custom-made for the US market.

  • Bernice

    Honda, never again. Bought Honda, on the 3rd year engine cracks. I got a new engine ONLY because I researched and found the bulletin explaining how SOME Honda 2006 -2009 could have a defect on the engine coating causing them to crack. Then my paint peels off within months of buying it. They sent out letters but since I was the 3rd owner, too bad, so sad. My car looks older then my 1999 Mercury.
