What’s Changed in the 2021 Model Year

The biggest change we’ve seen to the Honda Civic this year is in the lineup: the Civic coupe body style and sporty Si have both been scrapped. But not to worry! The popular sedan and hatchback models are still here, which will continue to suit the majority of buyers’ needs. 
The Sport Touring Hatchback comes with a standard manual transmission and turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 180 horsepower. With greater power output and a more spacious design than the base LX sedan, the Sport hatchback wins the vote of many automobile enthusiasts. 
2021 also brings a new Limited Edition model to the high performance Civic Type R. The new model is powered by a 306-horsepower engine, with adapted steering and suspension tuning, BBS wheels, and a three-mode drive system.

Engine Performance: What Those in Mechanics Schools Should Know

Professionals in an automotive mechanic career will be interested in the new Honda Civic’s engine performance. The Honda Civic has always been well-regarded for its powerful turbocharged engine, and the 2021 model continues to uphold that reputation. This year, there are three engines available for the different trim levels of the Civic. 
The standard for the Civic sedan is a 2.0 liter, 4-cylinder engine, yielding 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque. The Civic’s engine performance is top-notch, offering a smooth drive with responsive steering and handling. 
The EX and Touring sedans and the hatchback offer a 1.5 liter turbocharged engine that produces 174 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque. This engine comes standard with a continuously variable transmission, but the hatchback also offers the option of a 6-speed manual transmission. 
Most buyers will be happy with the standard Civic sedan engine, but those looking for quicker acceleration and greater power output can opt for a turbocharged option.
