Absolutely outstanding, this Honda is the most affordable, high-tech car you can buy in the market today. Honda is known never to compromise on aesthetic quality and when it comes to tech, they're a trusted auto brand, while not stretching your pocket. Seeking a car that doesn't compromise on tech and won't break the bank? the Honda Civic is your best bet.
That may come as a surprise to many: "High-tech" and "futuristic" aren't exactly words that come to mind when you hear Honda. Already, this car has won an award from Kelley Blue Book, with the EX version being the premium.
The Honda Civic EX comes with a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that gets a respectable 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque. It also has pretty standard mileage for a sedan, at 31 MPG in the city and 40 MPG on a highway.
Pricing starts at $21,140, but the sensing package will tack on an extra $1,000. That's a great deal: for just under $23,000, owners get a suite of driver assistance features.
The sensing package offers lane departure warning, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and pre-collision braking that will bring your car to a halt if you move too close to an obstacle in front of you. The sedan also comes with a multi-angle back-up camera that will show what's behind you when you're reversing. The Sensing package's Lane Watch feature will also display the view down the car's right side on the seven-inch touchscreen.
The infotainment system is superb with a center console that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other attributes include a key fob that you can keep in your pocket which you'd need to insert into the vehicle and push-start!
While the Honda Civic EX is being celebrated as being the most affordable high-tech car, the Honda Accord is also a top player in the high-tech and infotainment segment but only with a much wider price difference.
