Two of the Year’s Top Sedans

  • 2016 Honda Civic

    The 2016 Honda Accord and the 2016 Honda Civic are among the top sedans of 2016, with a stunning range of features enlivening spacious cabins, top safety ratings, and numerous industry accolades.

    Both models come in LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring trim levels, while the Accord also adds the Sport and the EX-L V6 for added power and the Civic adopts the EX-T for turbocharged fun. No matter your sedan and no matter your vehicle, Honda has something special in mind for you.

Standard Features

Honda is known for providing premium features as standard, and that’s certainly true with both the 2016 Honda Accord and the 2016 Honda Civic. Each model features cruise control, air-conditioning, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a four-speaker sound system, and either a 5-inch or 7.7-inch infotainment display. You’ll also take advantage of the following outstanding amenities:


Civic Rearview Camera

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Most sedans now come with a rearview camera as standard, but only Honda’s will offer three viewing modes (normal, top-down, and wide) to provide a complete view of the area behind you as you reverse. Don’t go looking for the same in models like the 2016 Toyota Camry or the 2016 Mazda3.

Speed-Sensitive Volume Control: Hate having your music or Bluetooth calls drowned out by engine noise? That won’t happen in the Civic or the Accord; the volume will be raised automatically in order to compensate.

Performance and MPG

The 2016 Honda Accord starts off strong with a 2.4L in-line 4-cylinder engine capable of producing up to 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque, or 189 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque with the Sport model. That’s more horses as standard than the 2016 Toyota Camry, the 2016 Mazda6, the 2016 Ford Fusion, or the 2016 Nissan Altima, but you’ll still be able to make up to an EPA-estimated 23 mpg in the city and 34 on the highway in Accord models with 6MT* or an EPA-estimated 27 city mpg and 37 highway mpg in models with CVT.*

For true high-end power, check out the 3.5L V6. Despite its ferocious 278 hp, 252 lb-ft of torque output, it will make an EPA-estimated 21 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway.*

The 2016 Honda Civic is just as impressive. You’ll be able to choose between either a 2.0L 4-cylinder rated at 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque or a turbocharged 1.5L capable of up to 174 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque. However, mileage is the real showstopper; expect up to an EPA-estimated 31 city mpg and 41 highway mpg with the 2.0L* or an EPA-estimated 31 city mpg and 42 highway mpg with the turbo.* To put that in perspective, the 2016 Toyota Corolla makes 29 mpg in the city and 38 on the highway while delivering just 132 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque.


Honda aims high with each and every vehicle when it comes to safety, so it should come as no surprise to learn that these top sedans for 2016 both achieved a 5-star rating from the NHTSA** and a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ status from the IIHS.*** They’ll also supply the following safety systems as standard:

  • Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control
  • Anti-Lock Braking System
  • Electronic Brake Distribution
  • Brake Assist
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System
  • Daytime Running Lights

However, it’s the available Honda Sensing suite that really separates them from the pack; you won’t receive all of these features with models like the 2016 Toyota Camry, 2016 Ford Fusion, or the 2016 Mazda3:

Interior Space

Both the 2016 Honda Accord and the 2016 Honda Civic can have their interiors made that much more luxurious with heated front and rear seats or leather-trimmed seats. However, the real draw for families will be space.

The Civic made waves this year by becoming 3 inches longer and 2 inches wider than its predecessor. That really makes a difference inside; you’ll find 37.4 inches of rear legroom versus just 33.3 in a competitor like the 2016 Ford Focus, plus 15.1 cubic feet in the trunk.

The Accord is similarly spacious, and offers an incredible 15.8 cubic feet in the trunk, more than both the Toyota Camry and the Nissan Altima, and you can boost that space by folding down the available 60/40-split rear seatback.

The Accord has just been named to Car and Driver’s 10Best list for the 30th time—that’s more times than any other vehicle.**** It was also named among the 16 Best Family Cars of 2016 by—you won’t find the Fusion or the Camry on that list.***** Here’s what the critics have to say:
