2014 Honda Civic Coupe: First Look


Competes with: Scion tC, Kia Forte Koup
Looks Like: The 2013 Civic coupe got a significant exterior update
Drivetrain: 205-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder with six-speed manual transmission; front-wheel drive
Hits dealerships: Sometime after the this month's L.A. Auto Show

Ahead of its full unveiling at this month's 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, Honda unveiled details on one version of the 2014 Civic: the racier Civic Si. Available as a coupe or sedan, the Si gets a retuned exhaust to make slightly more power. The Civic sedan carries over visually, while the coupe, which lacked the sedan's extensive 2013 visual updates, gets an exterior refresh for 2014. Honda says it revised the grille, hood, fenders, headlights and mirrors; the rear received darker taillights and reshaped bumpers. The result ties the headlights together with a stretched, joining grille; large side openings now dominate the front bumper, too, while the rear has a boxier bumper with horizontal reflectors.

The Si coupe gets a larger trunk spoiler than last year's, while the bumpers incorporate the Accord coupe's vertical cuts. Front and rear air diffusers are new, and both the Si sedan and coupe swap last year's 17-inch alloy wheels for 18s.
Revised exhaust in the Civic Si increases engine output to 205 horsepower and 174 pounds-feet of torque, up from last year's 201 hp and 170 pounds-feet, from a 2.4-liter four-cylinder. The engine drives the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission.

Honda unveiled the 2014 Civic coupe at Las Vegas' 2013 Specialty Equipment Market Association Show. The automaker's Honda Performance Development division, which heretofore specialized in the racing scene, also announced plans to build street-legal performance accessories beginning with a supercharger kit for the CR-Z. It goes on sale in spring 2014.

It's. So. BORING!!! ZZZZzzzzz.....


I don't understand what they're thinking. That big chuck of plastic between the headlights looks cheap! It's one reason I stopped looking at Acura. The big flared holes around the fog lights will catch dirt and look dumb. I'm glad I bought a 2013 without that ugly strip of plastic and the big holes.


The grille looks ridiculous... And are the exhaust finishers hidden?

The front grill reminds me of the 2012 sedan.


The front grille looks like the newly debuted Fit in Japan...
The fog lights looks like huge dimples...
Overall, neither good nor bad...And this is not a compliment...
In this segment, you either stand out, or stay behind.


Wow +4hp and +4 lbft ?? Wtf is that supposed to do ??? Sound faster smh you want to improve the looks (fail) and improve performance (even bigger FAIL)
I'm a die hard honda fan and the are letting us down just as much as the oakland raiders let me down.


This looks like a pretty big miss. The 2013 looks much much smoother. And those front fenders, ew!


The biggest problem will be in the interior. The exterior is not too bad. Sort of, Mazda3 - everything is fine but the smile


I have seen complaint posts on all sorts of blogs about the 2014 Civic Coupe reveal.

Most of you complaining about the aesthetics and the modest increase in power sound like teenage children, what did you guys expect from a mid cycle refresh? 300 hp? give it a rest people.

When the car is due for a full redesign perhaps that is when the major changes will happen. Don't think Honda isn't listening.. I think right now they are making the best of what they can out of the current platform already..

The only thing I do not like about this refresh is the fog light housings, I think they should have been toned down a bit. I like that the Civic is going for a more aggressive look, but it looks like it could use more polishing.

It would appear to me that most of the people complaining, don't like the foglights, or the wheel gap, or the perceived lack of power on the Si package.

I think it looks less bland than the 2012 and 2013 models. While I think the refresh is good I also think its not great.

The fog-light housings are an ungodly mess and destroy the entire front-end appearance of the car.


The 2014 model looks better than the 2013, more aggressive, The wheels design is a lot better too but and its a big one.
The car still looks like a smiling eggshell ,
Look at the BMW 3 series and try to learn something.


The front is a disaster. The rear looks way to girly. I'll stick with an 06-12 year model. What in the world were they thinking?


OMG. Some of the comments talk about horsepower and such, but when you are comparing it to other cars in it's class that does not quite cut it for Honda. So, we are left with the complete package which is looks and features and "style" This car is UGLY. I mean, so ugly that it could be a conversation starter about ugly cars in general.

That rear end is teen girl, the front end is...well...its just wrong on so many levels. I would be embarrassed to drive this vehicle. BORING.

Honda hasn't gotten it right in a couple of years now.
