For 2014, the Honda Civic Coupe gets updated styling, inside and out, along with new safety equipment and technology that enhances specific time levels. New wheels are added to LX and Si trims while the five-speed automatic has been replaced with a continuously variable transmission.

The Civic Coupe is available in LX, EX, EX-L Navi, and Si trim levels.

For the most part, the drivetrains carry over unchanged. Except for Si models, the Civic relies on a 1.8L, 16-valve, single-cam 4-cylinder engine. It receives a mild boost to 143 hp and 129 lb-ft of torque. The Si uses a more potent 2.4L 16-valve motor that now makes 205 hp and 174 lb-ft, an increase of 4 hp and 4 lb-ft of torque, thanks to a redesigned exhaust system.

A five-speed manual is the standard transmission available on the LX and EX models while the EX-L Navi comes with a CVT only. The Si can only offered with a six-speed manual and limited slip differential. All Civics are front-wheel drive.

Features on the LX include EcoAssist system with Econ mode, 5-speed manual transmission, 16-inch steel wheels, body-coloured door handles, integrated deck lid spoiler, air conditioning and filtration, exterior temperature indicator, Bluetooth, trip computer, Smart Maintenance Minder, power door locks, remote keyless entry with electronic trunk release, steering wheel-mounted cruise control, tilt/telescopic steering, 6-way driver’s seat, floor mats, 60/40 split/fold rear seat, heated front seats, 6-speaker AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio with auxiliary and USB ports, Bluetooth streaming audio, illuminated steering wheel mounted audio controls.
