There's a New 2018 Honda Civic for Every Chula Vista Driver

In a world packed with new crossovers and SUVs, the compact car remains the go-to choice for drivers of all stripes. For the Chula Vista commuter not just any will suffice. The Southern California cruise requires a tradition of dependability spanning decades, a driving experience well-mannered yet fun, bringing with it excellent fuel economy, the latest technologies, and the looks to turn heads down the I-15.

Honda Civic's Trim Levels: Civic Coupe, Sedan and Hatchback

The new Honda Civic is that car -- or, should we say, that trio. Discover the athletic, space-efficient new Civic coupe, capturing attention here in Chula Vista in LX, LX-P, EX-T, EX-L, and top-tier Touring trims. Looking for extra room where it matters most for the outing? Ascend to the new Civic sedan, in trims ranging from LX and EX through EX-T to EX-L to Touring. 

Drivers in search of versatility can find it in the new Civic hatchback, showcasing LX, Sport, EX, EX-L Navi, and Sport Touring trims ready to go the extra mile. No matter which experience speaks to you, yours remains right around the corner here at Penske Honda Chula Vista.

Honda Civic's Engine Options

Eager to step into the driver's seat? You'll find a world apart from the rest. 2018 Civic offers seating available leather-trimmed and heated in front for comfort that's up to any coastal CA excursion. In select body styles and trims, it's even heated for rear passengers. With a tap of the available push-button start, one of several optional engines comes to life for the cruise. In two- and four-door builds, it's either an energetic 158-horsepower, inline-four DOHC i-VTEC® or a 174-horsepower variant with a turbocharger. Go Civic compact hatch, and you gain a bump in turbocharged power, to 174 or 180 horsepower.

Honda Civic's Safety Features

Hit the road, and you can expect the Civic ride to remain enjoyable yet firmly indicative of the Honda safety commitment. Six-speed manual and CVT transmission options, for one, cater to both the hands-on type and drivers preferring ease of shifting. What's more, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA®) with Traction Control helps keep the car on the level, while a suite of Honda Sensing® driver-assist tech backs you up at the top of the line, standard in Civic coupe, available in the sedan style, and optional in all trims save Sport hatchback. The latter can deliver warnings of lane departure or an impending collision, help you stay on course, and assist in maintaining a safe distance from other drivers. Plus, optional Honda LaneWatch, available across the board, simplifies keeping your eyes on the driving environment.

Honda Civic's Infotainment Features

But no tour can go off without the entertainment to help make it memorable. To that end, Honda Civic puts control at your fingertips. The car builds in a four-speaker, 5-inch color LCD infotainment system in its bases, which becomes a 180-watt, eight-speaker or thumping 450-watt, 10-speaker premium audio system in higher trims, paired with a 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen. Reach the Civic Sport Touring hatchback, and an optional 540-watt, 12-speaker premium sound system makes your road-trip soundtrack an anthem. What's more, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto appear standard in select trims, letting you extend smartphone access and control to the dash, and a Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with voice recognition and Honda HD Digital Traffic is an option for directional convenience.

Of course, these aren't all to which you have to look forward in the new 2018 Honda Civic in Chula Vista. Ready to take your travel plans from everyday to go-anywhere? Visit us here on Auto Park Drive for a spin. We look forward to introducing you to a drive-time unlike any other!
