2016 Best Buy Overall Winner: 2016 Civic

The 2016 Honda Civic took home the Overall Best Buy honor as well as the Small Car Best award in Kelley Blue Book’s annual Best Buy Awards. Previously, the Civic had won the small car category in 2015, but Kelley Blue Book said that the fresh redesign of the tenth generation Civic made it a clear winner overall.

“The completely redesigned 10th-generation Civic has raised the bar for compact cars in general to a new level,” said Kelley Blue Book. “This Japanese compact sedan alters the playing field with its attention to detail, use of high quality interior materials and world-class drivetrain featuring Honda’s first mass production turbocharged engine.”

The Honda Civic is clearly the car to beat in the compact sedan class. Kelley Blue Book pointed out the all new 1.5L turbocharged four-cylinder engine, but even the new 2.0L four-cylinder base engine offers more power and more efficiency than the previous generation Civic. The new model is rated by the EPA at 31 mpg city/41 mpg highway* with continuously variable transmission and the 158 hp 2.0L engine, or 31 mpg city/42 mpg highway with the new 174 hp 1.5L turbocharged four-cylinder.

But Kelley Blue Book says that these models aren’t even the most exciting bit of the new tenth generation Civic: “The best part of the 2016 Honda Civic story is yet to come as the sedan will soon be joined by other variants, including a coupe, 5-door hatch, and sporty Si and Type R performance models, the latter of which hasn’t been seen in the U.S.”
