What’s new for the 2016 Honda Civic Sedan?

The 2016 version of the Honda Civic will no longer feature the 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine found in last year’s model. That engine has been replaced with a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder. This compact sedan is also available with an all-new turbocharged engine, but that’s only for the top-level trims. In addition, the Hybrid and Natural Gas versions of the Civic have been discontinued.
