Dealerships got the inside tip earlier today that the 2016 Honda Civic Coupe would hit showroom floors as early as March 15.
To call the 2016 Honda Civic Sedan a success off the bat would be an understatement as they’ve been selling like those proverbial hotcakes since they hit the showroom floors. With a Civic Coupe on the way, sales for Honda will only accelerate. According to HondaPro Jason and confirmed by our friends at CivicX, the 2016 Honda Civic Coupe is set to hit showroom floors by March 15 for just $19,050 for the LX Trim level. Check out a screenshot of the 2016 Honda Civic Coupe with what we assume is its standard configuration.
Compared to the sedan starting at $18,640, the 2016 Honda Civic Coupe is priced a little bit more expensive but does come with more premium standard features. Returning is the 2.0L 158 HP engine. We assume they’ve fixed that nasty piston ring issue that caused a nationwide recall. You also get,
- 16″ alloy wheels (why they don’t have steel wheels at a cheaper price baffles me.)
- Rear back-up camera
- 60/40 split rear seats
- LED Day time running lights
- Auto headlights
- LCD Color audio screen
- Electronic parking brake (sorry drifters)
- Auto Climate Control
We’re also going to assume that this $19,050 price already includes the $835 destination charge. As details become further revealed, Honda is sure to throw in their 1.5T engine (with manual option) further down the line.
The 2016 Honda Civic Coupe ditches two doors (obviously) and loses a bit of rear cargo space. But what you lose in practicality you gain in a sportier design language and lines that do the sportier engines a bit of justice. We’ve posted Temple of VTEC’s impromptu streetside interview with the 2016 Honda Civic’s lead designer Guy Melville Brown and we’ll let him sweep you off your feet as to why the Civic Coupe is a real winner.
