The 2017 Honda Civic Sedan and Coupe EX-T trims now feature standard six-speed manual transmission (6MT) that produces a peak 174 hp and 167 lb.-ft. of torque when paired with the 1.5-liter direct-injected and turbocharged DOHC engine
The amount of torque offered from the transmission and turbocharged engine combination offers 5 lb.-ft. more torque compared to Coupe and Sedan models that are equipped with Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). The CVT remains optional on turbocharged EX-T trims, but is standard on EX-L and Touring, according to the automaker.
Fuel economy for the EX-T Sedan and Coupe with 6MT is 31/42/35 and 30/41/25, respectively.
The EX-T Sedan trim is priced at $22,335 when offered with 6MT and is priced at $23,135 when offered as CVT. The price for the EX-T Coupe is raised the same amount between the two transmissions, going from $22,435 for the 6MT, and $23,235 for the CVT.
The 10th-generation Civic lineup starts at manufacturer's suggested retail price of $19,575 for the LX Sedan and $19,985 for the LX Coupe when they are offered with 6MT, but cost an additional $800 when offered with CVT, according to the automaker.
