What are the Different Honda Trim Levels?

While each Honda lineup has its own distinct set of options, you’ll typically find five different types of Honda trims for your Broomfield commute. These include the LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, and Touring. Certain lineups will feature all five options, such as the Honda Civic, while others like the Honda Accord omit the Touring model, and the Honda CR-V leaves out the Sport option. So, if you’re wondering about the difference between LX and Sport trim levels, or any others, here’s a breakdown of what separates each below:

  • LX: This is almost always the base model that offers all of the standard features available throughout the rest of the lineup. In higher trim levels, some standard features may be replaced by upgrades.
  • Sport: These trims tend to offer enhancements to the engineering for a sportier performance with better engine power, suspension, drivetrain, fuel economy, and safety features.
  • EX: This serves as a sweet spot with standard features and enhanced performance capabilities, along with a few exclusive amenities.
  • EX-L: These models offer enhanced interior and exterior features that offer more luxury and accessibility as well additional technology or driver-assist features.
  • Touring: This serves as the top tier trim that’s equipped with the best features a lineup can offer. Touring trims provide everything you need whether you’re around town or far from home.
