Explore the 2014 Honda Civic in Baton Rouge
Even after being on the car market for over 40 years, the Honda Civic remains one of the most dependable vehicles in the world. If you are seeking an efficient daily-driver that offers all of the latest high-tech goodies, the 2014 Honda Civic is definitely among the best available candidates.
Although the new Civic is engineered to deliver impressive gas mileage, its free-revving engine is still able to bring the excitement when called into action. Unlike most of the competition, the Civic was also chosen as a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Team Honda in Baton Rouge invites you to come out to actually experience the new Civic in person.
Engine & Transmission
The 2014 Honda Civic is motivated by a super-reliable 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine that generates 143 horsepower and 129 pound-feet of torque. Not only has the engine proved to be very durable over the past few years, but it also features Honda’s legendary VTEC system. When the engine revs past 5000 rpm, the VTEC system transforms the Civic into a very potent driving machine. This makes merging onto the freeway a piece of cake.
While most drivers will love the versatility and efficiency of the continuous variable transmission, thrill seekers may prefer the fun of shifting through gears with the five-speed manual transmission. While the manual version of the Civic delivers a frugal 36 mpg on the open road, models equipped with a CVT are rated at an eco-friendly 39 miles-per-gallon. The available HF trim blows the competition away by averaging over 40 mpg on the highway.
Whether you prefer your Civic in the form of a four-door sedan or a coupe, you can expect to be treated to a very engaging driving experience. The improved steering response further enhances the driver’s connection to the road. Passenger comfort remains a top priority with the new Civic.
The 2014 Honda Civic is available in three different trims. Although the LX trim is considered the base version, it packs plenty of noteworthy features. Very few cars in the Civic’s price range come standard with a rear-view camera and a five-inch display screen. The air-conditioner will certainly get plenty of use when the summer temperatures begin to rise in Baton Rouge.
The EX trim brings even more luxuriousness. Honda’s exclusive LaneWatch camera system makes the Civic a much safer vehicle when maneuvering on the road. The additional stopping power of the rear disc braking system also comes in handy during emergency situations. The seven-speaker sound system enables you to pump up the volume with no distortion. In an effort to minimize the amount of on-road distractions, the system also enables you to integrate your mobile phone. Key-less entry and a sunroof also come standard.
The top-of-the-line EX-L trim includes automatic headlights, leather upholstery, and navigation. The installment of 17-inch wheels gives the Civic an even meaner stance on the road.
Although the Team Honda dealership is located in Baton Rouge, the dealership serves the entire state of Louisiana. Residents of Hammond and New Orleans are especially encouraged to stop by for a tour and test drive of the 2014 Honda Civic. You are destined to run across a bargain that steals your heart.
