Recently, Honda unveiled the restyled 2016 Civic Sedan. With this comprehensive redesign came a lot of mystery, as the automaker revealed only the most basic details about its powertrain options. Also left on the table was pricing for the all-new Civic Sedan. Today, these and other details are finally available.

The 2016 Civic Sedan will launch with a pair of engines available. The base engine is a 2.0-liter i-VTEC four-cylinder that produces 158 horsepower and 138 pound-feet of torque, putting it at a 15-horse and 9-pound-feet increase over the 2015 Civic’s base 1.8-liter engine. The higher-level engine is a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that pumps out 174 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 162 pound-feet of torque between 1,800 and 5,500 rpm – a 31-horsepower and 33-pound-feet gain over the 2015 model’s 1.8-liter.

The 2.0-liter engine will be the standard engine in the LX and EX trims. The LX model pairs this engine with a six-speed auto transmission as standard, while the EX uses a standard continuously variable transmission (the CVT is optional in the LX). The 1.5-liter engine will see use in the EX-T and EX-L trims, and they will both use the CVT with a special torque convertor.

Both engines will deliver stellar fuel economy for the class, as the 2.0-liter with the CVT is rated 31 mpg city, 41 mpg highway and 35 mpg combined, while the 2.0-liter engine with the manual transmission gets 27 mpg city, 40 mpg highway, and 31 mpg combined. The 1.5-liter turbocharged engine gets 31 mpg city, 42 mpg highway, and 35 mpg combined.

In addition to its new look, the Civic Sedan gets a bigger cabin for 2016. It grows by 3.2 cubic feet of overall interior room, 1.2 extra inches of rear-seat legroom, and 2.6 cubic feet of extra cargo room. Honda also claims that the 2016 Civic has a new body-sealing that reduces air leaks by 58 percent, which lowers cabin noise. Also helping reduce noise is its acoustic windshield, a tighter-sealed engine compartment, and triple-sealed doors.

The final bit of information revealed in Honda’s latest press release is pricing. The 2016 Civic bases from $18,640 for the LX trim with the six-speed manual, while the CVT jumps the price to $19,440. The remaining trims include the EX at $21,040, the E-T at $22,200, the EX-L at $23,700, the EX-L Navi at $24,700, and the Touring at $26,500. Buyers can also add the Honda Sensing package – Honda’s suite of advanced safety features – to the LX, EX, EX-T, and EX-L trims for an extra $1,000.

The Civic Sedan will hit dealers on November 12, 2015. Stay tuned, as details on the Civic Coupe and the Si models should be right around the corner.
