How would you like to drive a stylish and sporty car that is more spacious, more powerful, and more fuel-efficient than its competition? If that sounds like a winning combination to you, then you must see the all- Honda Civic. Honda's wildly popular compact sedan has been completely redesigned for 2016, once again putting its compact car rivals on notice. Vatland Honda, serving the communities near Ft. Pierce, Port St. Lucie, Sebastian, and Palm Bay & Fellsmere, invites local drivers to visit our Vero Beach, FL showroom to test drive and experience the all- Civic. We have a superb selection of new Civics for you to explore!

In addition to shopping our current inventory here on the Vatland Honda website, you can also research Honda models and compare them to their competitors. Let's take a look a how the all- Honda Civic stacks up against the likes of Kia's compact car, the Forte.

Standard Fuel Economy

With its larger, more powerful engine, you may be surprised to learn that the Honda Civic is significantly more fuel-efficient than Kia's Forte. The all-new Civic's 2.0-liter engine, when paired with an efficient continuously variable transmission (CVT), helps the Honda achieve an impressive 31 city and 41 highway mpg rating -- or 35 mpg combined. Kia's Forte, even with its smaller, 1.8-liter engine, only manages 25 city/37 highway/30 combined mpg when paired with an automatic transmission. With an overall five mpg advantage over the Kia Forte, the all-new Civic is hard to pass up when shopping for a fuel-sipping compact!

Standard Horsepower

Not only does the 2016 Honda Civic provide much better fuel economy than its rival from Kia, but it is also more powerful! The potent 2.0-liter engine under the hood of the all-new Civic produces a highly capable 158 horses and 138 lb-ft of torque. The Forte's 1.8-liter, on the other hand, is down 13 hp when compared to the Civic, rated at 145 hp. If you are looking for a compact sedan that is not only fun around the corners, but also has the power on tap for passing and merging, then choose the 2016 Civic.

Passenger Volume and Cargo Capacity

If passenger comfort and space matters to you when choosing a compact car, then you had better have the all-new Civic on your test drive list! The latest version of Honda's iconic compact car offers not only more passenger volume than the Forte, but also more cargo space. In all, the 2016 Civic features more trunk space, front headroom, front legroom, second-row legroom, as well as more front and rear shoulder room. With the all-new Civic, Honda has proven that they can build a car that is larger, more spacious, and more powerful than the competition, while still winning the fuel economy battle.

Standard Features

Honda's latest Civic compact car is packed with desirable features, many of which come as standard equipment on the base Civic model. For instance, the base Civic LX is outfitted with such standard amenities as a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, Automatic Climate Control, power windows with auto-up/down driver's and front passenger's windows, cruise control, USB audio interface, and seating for five passengers. Additional features that come standard on every 2016 Honda Civic include:

  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
  • Eco Assist™ System
  • Dual Stage, Multiple-Threshold Front Airbags (SRS)
  • SmartVent® Front Side Airbags
  • Side Curtain Airbags with Rollover Sensor
  • Automatic Climate Control System
  • Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®
  • Bluetooth® Streaming Audio
  • 5-inch Color LCD Screen
  • Average Fuel Economy Indicators

Available Features

If you are searching for a compact car that offers the same features of cars that cost many thousands more, then be sure to shop for a 2016 Honda Civic! The base model of the all-new Civic is even available with Honda Sensing™, Honda's suite of safety and driver assistive-technologies. Unfortunately for drivers who choose Kia, there are no such options offered on the base Forte model. Leather seating surfaces and heated front and rear seats are another popular available option on the new Civic. The long list of amenities available on Honda's latest Civic compact car continues with:

  • Lane departure warning system
  • Lane keeping assist system
  • Lane sway warning system
  • Pedestrian detection
  • Radar- or camera-based collision preparation system
  • Automatic braking, high-speed or partial
  • Forward collision warning
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow (ACC)
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines
  • Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control System
  • Leather-Wrapped Steering Wheel
  • Leather-Wrapped Shift Knob

Safety

If you want a compact car that is big on safety, then you should take a serious look at the all-new Civic. The 2016 Honda Civic has earned five-star ratings across the board from federal safety tests. The IIHS crash-tested the all-new Civic sedan and has given it top "Good" ratings in each category of testing -- and the top "Superior" rating in the front collision avoidance category! The Civic even earned the agency's highly coveted Top Safety Pick+ award, too. While the Kia Forte is also a safe vehicle, it doesn't quite match the level of safety that you will get with the new Civic.

If you live near the cities of Ft. Pierce, Port St. Lucie, Sebastian, and Palm Bay & Fellsmere, and would like to explore the all- Honda Civic further, then plan a visit to Vatland Honda in Vero Beach, FL. We look forward to helping you find a Civic that makes your heart race -- and your wallet happy, too!
