And it's exceptionally safe, with perfect scores from NHTSA and IIHS and all the latest safety features, packaged in the affordable Honda Sensing with adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, road-departure mitigation, forward-collision warning, lane-keeping assist, and the Collision Mitigation Braking System.** The 2018 Honda Civic isn't just an all-around good car--it exceeds expectations in almost every category.

If you want everything money can buy, try the Civic Sport Touring, which gives you all the options plus a 180-horsepower engine.
