Although there may not be as many outstanding exterior features in the new Civic Coupe as there are in the Accord, the features that are there make it a decent car to drive. Of course the DX and LX models have fewer features than the EX and EX-L models, but there are certain exterior features that are standard on all models. Those exterior features include an integrated-rear window antenna, security system with remote entry, manually operated side mirrors, body-colored impact-absorbing bumpers, auto off, multi-reflector halogen headlights, and body-colored door handles. Some of the extras that buyers can choose with the pricier models include a moonroof with one-touch power and a tilt feature, heated power side mirrors, and variable intermittent windshield wipers. Beyond these specific features the exterior of the new Civic Coupe is not all that remarkable, but Honda makes up for it with the interior and safety features that come standard on the 2012 Civic Coupe.
While the outside of the 2012 Civic Coupe may not be all that remarkable, the interior of the vehicle is definitely something that the company can brag about. As stated before, Honda did hang onto the two-tier instrument panel design, which is great, but the best interior features come in the form of the vehicles capabilities. Although the DX model comes with fewer features than the other models, the pricing of the LX, EX, and EX-L is somewhat moderate, which means buyers can upgrade to a loaded model and it will still have a fairly low price tag in comparison to other vehicle in its class. Some of the interior features that come standard on those more loaded models are Bluetooth with HandsFreeLink, cruise control, leather-wrapped steering, illuminated steering wheel-mounted controls, telescopic steering column with tilt, center console and door pocket storage, map lights, and a driver's footrest. And of course the interior also features some pretty advanced technology as well, especially when it comes to audio capability. The higher models come with a 160-Watt, 6 speaker stereo system with CD, or a 360-Watt, 7 speaker system with CD and a subwoofer, as well as XM Radio with navigation, a USB audio interface, MP3 audio playback capability, radio data system, and speed-sensitive volume control. And it is features like these that have likely added to the vehicles popularity over the years since its development.
Last but not least, in fact often first on a vehicle buyer's list, are the safety features, which the 2012 Honda Civic Coupe has many of. The safety features that come standard on these vehicles come standard on every model, and on other Honda vehicles as well. The best safety features include multiple airbags with front passenger-side occupant position detection, 3-point seatbelts with automatic tensioning, vehicle stability assist with traction control, an anti-lock braking system with electronic brake distribution, a tire pressure monitoring system, and side-impact door beams. It is these kinds of safety features that give Honda such a decent rating regarding overall safety. Although the 2012 Honda Civic Coupe may not be the stylish, most capable vehicle it has some fairly outstanding features considering it is a mid-priced compact vehicle. For consumers who are looking for a bargain this might be the vehicle, but for consumers looking for class there may be better options out there.
