Honda Civic Sedan

The Honda Civic line-up has a rich and spectacular history, being one of the most popular sedans (and coupes in newer model years) in this segment. And with the 2015 Honda Civic model having undergone several great improvements, updates, and changes, there is no wonder why many Pittsburgh, Wexford, and Cranberry car shoppers head to BAIERL Automotive to make a purchase of one of the many trim levels this Civic model year has to offer.

The Whopping Eight Different Trim Levels to Choose From

You read it right: Honda offers the Civic in eight different trim levels, starting with the base LX, followed by the HF, the EX, the EX-L, the SE, the Civic Si, the Civic Hybrid, and lastly, the Civic Natural Gas.

The Feature-Rich Base Level Trim

Even when you go for only the base level LX trim, you can expect an impressive list of standard equipment and technologies in it. Whether you choose the sedan or the coupe, you will have a 5” display screen on the center console, air conditioning, rearview camera, power equipment (windows, locks, and mirrors), auxiliary plug, Pandora Internet Radio, CD-player, Bluetooth, and iPod interface.

Stepping Up the Game with the HF Trim

Get the next level trim HF, and you will take home a sedan specifically designed to maximize fuel efficiency and economy. It also comes with low rolling-resistance tires, aerodynamic wheels, rear spoiler, and underbody panels.

The SE: A New-for-this-Year Trim

For the model year 2015, Ford decided to launch a new trim option, and it comes in the form of the SE. This sedan-only trim comes standard with the continuously variable transmission (CVT) automatic system, together with 15” alloy wheels, 7” touchscreen display, push-button start, keyless access, automatic climate control, and Honda's proprietary LaneWatch blind spot monitoring system.

The EX Trim for the Coupe Lovers

Unlike the base and the HF trim, Ford makes the EX trim available in both the sedan and the coupe versions. Take this home with you, and you get a ride equipped with a power sunroof, 16” alloy wheels, variable intermittent wipers, HondaLink smartphone integration, and a 60/40-split folding rear seatback among several other standard equipment.

The Premium Level EX-L Trim

Opt for the top tier trim EX-L, and you will have a sedan/coupe equipped with most of the amenities and technologies in the lower level trims plus more. This top-of-the-level trim also sports bigger alloy wheels, fog lights, power driver’s seats, luxurious and ultra-comfortable leather upholstery, as well as heated front seats.

The Civic Si: Made for Those Who Want a Sporty Sedan or Coupe

When you want a Civic that delivers a much sportier feel and vibe both in terms of driving and handling, you should go for the Civic Si. Like the EX-L trim, you can also choose between a sedan and a coupe body style. The Si comes with a more powerful engine, in the form of a 4-cylinder powertrain. Also standard in this trim are sport suspension, limited-slip differential, and fog lights. You will also find most of the equipment in the EX trim here.

The Hybrid and the Natural Gas: For Fuel-Economic Conscious Motorists

Honda engineers created the Honda Civic Hybrid and the Natural Gas trims specifically for motorists who need an enjoyable, comfortable, yet extremely fuel-economic vehicle. The Civic Hybrid's standard equipment follows most of those in the set list of the EX trim, but you can also get optional features from the EX-L trim. Standard equipment for the Hybrid includes forward collision warning and departure warning systems. As for the Civic Natural Gas, the standards include all those you will find in the LX trim.

The Quite-a-Long List of Standard Safety Components of the Civic

One of the many different reasons car buyers from all over Pittsburgh, Wexford, and Cranberry still opt for the Honda Civic is because, whichever of the available trims they get, they enjoy a long list of standard safety components. These include front-side airbags, side-curtain airbags, 4-wheel anti-lock brakes, rearview camera, and stability control.

You get to enjoy upgrades like dual zone automatic front air conditioning system, Auto Brake Assist, driver and passenger heated front seats, a regular express open/close-sliding/tilting glass Sunroof, and a voice activated Navigation system. Like the LE, the XLE also comes with a digital media system (complete with a DVD player). Another upgrade lies within the wheels: the chrome aluminum replaces the steel wheels.

The Limited Edition for those Who Want the Best of All Trims

When you want to invest in the best of all the RAV4 trims, then go for the Limited edition trim, available in both the front-wheel and the all-wheel drive system. Of course, seeing that this is the best of all the trims, you can already expect its list of standard features to feature much more equipment, amenities, and technologies.

In other words, you can expect the Toyota RAV4 to, whichever trim you choose, to have the equipment that will safely and securely bring you from point A to point B. All of the trim levels of this compact crossover line-up come with a great number of safety technologies, including front active headrests, front impact airbags, overhead airbags, side-impact airbags, knee airbags, passenger seat cushion airbag, and knee airbags, anti-lock brakes, anti-theft technology, seatbelt pretensioners, stability control, and projector headlamps.
