How does the 2017 Honda Civic Sedan compare to the competition?

For the Nissan Sentra, it is a tale of “Not Available.” There is such a long list of features that are not available on this top level Nissan trim, that comparing it to the fully-featured Honda Civic Sedan with the Touring trim seems trivial.

Not only does the Honda Civic Sedan Touring come with a power moonroof, leather seats, a power driver’s seat, and dual zone climate control to ensure your utmost comfort, this car also has hill start assist, which the Sentra just doesn’t have.

Both of these models come with the fuel-efficient continuously variable transmission or CVT, but one seems to take advantage of it more than the other. When it comes to fuel economy, the 2017 Honda Civic Sedan in the Touring trim gets 32 mpg in the city and 42 mpg on the highway according to EPA estimates.* This also outdoes the Nissan Sentra NISMO CVT which only gets 25 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.

If you are thinking about purchasing or leasing a Civic Sedan in the Indianapolis area, then you can come down to Indy Honda. We can help you find the right trim whether you are interested in the top-level Touring or any of the other four trim levels.
