The 2015 Honda Civic does not see drastic changes from its 2014 model year make over, but new features and updates will complement the hot selling economy car for the upcoming model year. The biggest news is the introduction of the Civic SE model. SE traditionally meaning “Special Edition” aims to be a higher value package that gives a few unique upgrades to the Civic and makes it stand out over the base model LX version. The starting price for the Civic was announced at $18,290 for the LX accompanied by the standard 5-speed manual transmission. Honda claims that the SE model adds over $1,000 worth of options for a small price of $700 dollars making it quite the bargain.
Features of the Civic Special Edition include:
- CVT Automatic Transmission
- 15 inch Aluminum Alloy Wheels with Black Accents
- Honda LaneWatch
- Automatic Climate Control
- HondaLink Audio Display and 7 inch Touch Screen
- Additional Tweeter Speakers (6 speaker Audio System)
All Civic models will continue to be powered by a slightly refined drive-train that carries over from 2014. It is the 1.8 liter i-VTEC 4 cylinder engine pushing out 143 horsepower. It will be the heart of all four trim levels, LX, SE, EX and HF. The sporty Honda Civic SE will go on sale at a price of $19,990.
