Engine Options & Specs

One of the reasons that the Civic has survived for decades is its commitment to giving drivers versatile yet fuel-efficient powertrains, and while nothing will compare to the feeling of driving one, the 2015 Honda Civic’s engine options and specs paint the picture of a small car that’s ready to take on your day-to-day challenges with ease. For drivers who prefer a manual transmission, you’ll have a five-speed stick shift available, but Honda has made sure to feature a state-of-the-art continuously variable transmission as well.

And whether you want power, fuel economy, or both, we think you’ll be impressed by what Honda’s Earth Dreams 1.8L four-cylinder engine has to offer Civic drivers:

  • The 1.8L four-cylinder engine under the hood features a SOHC i-VTEC design that helps account for the 143 hp and 130 lb-ft of torque each Civic is capable of.
  • 2015 Honda Civic sedan models equipped with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) earn an EPA-estimated 39 highway and 30 city mpg,* making it one of the most fuel-efficient small cars on the road.

While you only have one engine option on the Civic, you have a couple of different transmission choices, and making the right decision will depend quite a bit on your personal preferences:

  • For drivers who prefer the old-school stick shift, you can find a five-speed manual transmission standard on the 2015 Civic LX Sedan and Civic LX and EX Coupe. Combined with Honda’s drive-by-wire throttle system, the manual transmission helps you stay perfectly in tune with your Civic.
  • If you want the control of a manual transmission with the fuel efficiency of an automatic, we suggest you opt for the continuously variable transmission or CVT. Standard on Civic SE, EX, and EX-L Sedans and Civic EX-L Coupes, the CVT finds the right gear ratio for a given situation and has steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters available for added control.

Whether you opt for the five-speed manual or the CVT, we insist that the 2015 Honda Civic is more fun to drive than it is to read about — you should see it in person and feel the difference between the transmissions for yourself.
