The 2014 Honda Civic is praised by professional car reviewers for its smooth powertrain, strong resale value and a wealth of standard features.

The Honda Civic was fully re-designed for the 2012 model of the year, and received interior updates in 2013. For 2014, Honda added an optional Continuously Variable Transmission or CVT.
The 2014 Civic is front-wheel drive and available in Sedan or Coupe body styles. It comes standard with a 1.8 liter, four-cylinder engine, and a five-speed manual transmission. Equipped with the CVT the Civic delivers an EPA estimated 30 miles per gallon in the city and 39 on the highway, which is quite good for the class.
The Civic comes in several trims with a base price starting around $18,000. The Civic is also available as a hybrid.
Test drivers say that the Civic accelerates briskly and while most continuously variable transmissions tend to get panned by reviewers the one in the Honda Civic gets good reviews, with auto-writers saying that it operates smoothly and makes good use of the engine's power.
Though many reviewers say the Civic isn't as fun to drive as other cars in the class, most agree that it has strong brakes and a comfortable ride.
Reviewers report that both the front and back seats in the Honda Civic Sedan are comfortable and roomy. They also appreciate the soft touch materials throughout the cabin and on the dash, which they say gives the car a more upscale feel than previous models.
The 2014 Civic comes standard with features like a rear-view camera, Bluetooth, and a USB port. Optional features including infotainment system with a 7-inch touch screen, navigation and a power moonroof.
Most auto-writers say that the Civic's tech features are easy to use.
