View InventoryColorado - 2018 Honda Civic Coupe

Model Overview

The Honda Civic has been a huge hit for small car buyers since it was originally released in 1972. One of the reasons why this stylish vehicle has such impressive staying power in a fickle industry is because the automaker has continuously made improvements to it year after year. In fact, it is currently in its tenth generation, and the 2017 Honda Civic Coupe received substantial updates from bumper to bumper in comparison to the 2016 model. Because the improvements to the 2017 model were so significant, only minimal changes have been made to the 2018 Civic Coupe. Nonetheless, one critical difference between 2017 and 2018 may give reason to buy a 2018 model rather than the previous year's version. Visiting Kuni Honda serving Denver Highlands Ranch Golden Centennial gives you the chance to check out all that both of these model years offer to drivers.

Continued Exterior Class

When the tenth generation of the Honda Civic Coupe was offered for sale in 2016, it featured the fastback exterior design that the 2017 and 2018 models currently have. This design is characterized by a gently sloping roofline that fades into the tailgate. The front end of the 2017 and 2018 Honda Civic Coupe has a front wing design that includes the automaker's emblem centered in a stunning grille. The grille fades into headlights that have an almost teardrop-like shape. Seven exterior colors are available for both model years. Depending on your preference of trim level for both model years, your Civic Coupe in Centennial Colorado will feature alloy wheels that range in size between 16 and 18-inches.

A Major Powertrain Update

While differences between the 2017 and 2018 model years for the Civic Coupe are minimal, a major change is available in the powertrain department. In 2017, the Civic Type R was only available in very limited supply, and this meant that very few drivers who were interested in driving this high-performance vehicle could even find one that they could test drive. This limited supply for the Type R changes with the 2018, and this is because the Type R is now being produced in larger numbers. The Type R is an aggressive-looking version of the Civic Coupe, and it features carbon fiber features, a black grille and rims, 20-inch performance tires, body side molding, a sports tail and console illumination on the interior. More impressively, the Type R has major powertrain updates. The standard engine is a 1.5-liter, inline four-cylinder engine that delivers less than 180 horsepower. The Type R, on the other hand, has a 2.0-liter VTEC engine, and it gives you up to 306 horsepower with as much as 295 foot-pounds of torque. This trim level also includes a high flow turbo and electric waste gate, a limited slip differential, direct fuel injection, a six-speed manual transmission, rev match control and other performance-based features.

Safety Information

Regardless of which model year and trim level that you select for your Civic Coupe. It has high-tech safety features like lane watch, adaptive cruise control, a forward collision warning feature, emergency braking, lane departure intervention and more.
