While there is much talk about the changes in design for the 2014 Honda Civic, the more important aspect of the redesign is the big improvement in occupant protection. The improved structure and new features makes it top pick for safety.

Honda is making big changes for 2014 for their Civic line. The 2012 design release wasn’t exactly successful. So this year, they’re promising another big change for the look of the car. The 2014 Honda Civic will be highly influenced by the look of the Accord including the black honeycomb mesh grille, foglamps for the upper trims and a similar bumper design with that of the Accord, including a chrome finishing bar. The changes contribute to a more sophisticated contemporary look for the refreshed sedan. Big structural upgrades have also been made for the upcoming release, which ramps up the Civic’s crash test ratings, making it the class leader yet again for safety. Available with a coupe or a sedan body type, the 2014 Honda Civic can also be upgraded with various trim levels such as DX, LX, EX and EX-L. Powertrain configurations are just as varied. While most models will have a 1.8-liter inline 4 with a five-speed manual or automatic transmission, there is also a powerful hybrid version with continuous variable transmission and a 2.4-liter engine with six-speed manual transmission. All versions of the 2014 Honda Civic offer capable handling and improved driving dynamics.

The 2014 Honda Civic is bolstering its base structure with high-strength steel side pillars and a thicker windshield and front door glass. In terms of styling, the improved, Accord-like look of the Civic helps it go head-to-head with the competition. Compared to the 2012 release, this year’s version is more chiseled with a more sculpted profile than its predecessor. Although the general stance is the same as previous models.

Power and Performance:This year’s Civic has better suspension with firmer springs (plus 15 percent front, 18 percent rear) and thicker anti-roll bar (up 0.9 inch in front and 0.2 inch at the rear) giving it a perky but controlled driving feel. Steering has also been improved by an 8 percent ratio (from 16.1:1 to 14.9:1) which makes it feel much lighter.
Interiors and Special Features:The interior materials for the 2014 Honda Civic release have greatly improved with soft-touch surfaces and darker trims in place of the grainy hard plastic that once finished the dash. But the general look of the cockpit is essentially a carry-over from last year. Soundproofing for the dash, floors, doors and rear tray have also been upgraded resulting in a quieter ride and better acoustics inside. Standard features including cruise control, power windows, a rear-view camera system, Bluetooth, and Pandora connectivity. For entertainment, the 2014 Honda Civic is equipped with a 160-watt sound system with iPod and USB integration.
Safety features:The 2014 Honda Civic’s safety features have improved significantly the introduction of a new SmartVent airbag design. Other standard features include electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes. Meanwhile, the Civic Hybrid will get standard Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) systems. Being the top of its class in safety, Honda has received the highest rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) small overlap frontal test, making it one of the few compact cars to garner the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ rating. It also received five-star ratings from government crash tests. Overall, the 2014 Honda Civic is back in the game. The redesign, the improved interiors and the top safety ratings can entice consumers once again to take a look at the Civic line for their 2014 car purchase.
