2005 Honda Civic - Price Quote

Visit Honda for more information on the Honda Civic.

If you have had a Honda Civic for a while and haven't thought of it as the most dependable car in your history, then you somehow got the needle in the haystack - a Civic lemon. Fact is, the Honda Civic is one of the most long-lasting vehicles out there.

They are comfortable, safe and they have great re-sale value. They are the coupes and sedans of the Civic family. Coming off a series of upgrades last year, Honda gives the Civic a brand-new top-line EX Special Edition trim in 2005. It ups the comfort level considerably, adding a bit more class in the process.

Available Models
The 2005 Honda Civic is offered in an array of models. There are coupes and sedans in DX, VP, LX, HX, EX and Special Edition models, plus an Si hatchback and a Hybrid model (HX, Si and Hybrid models covered separately).

Interior Features
The 2005 Honda Civic is a compact car, but it call still squeeze in five when necessary. Four will fit quite comfortably inside.

DX models are equipped with only the basics. Moving up the line to, say, the LX gets you a nice set of standard features, but if you want a true heaping, the new EX is for you.

The new 2005 Honda Civic EX Special Edition trim has an exclusive leather-wrapped steering wheel and an upgraded audio head unit that not only adds in-dash 6-disc changer capability, but will also play MP3's and includes an auxiliary input jack for convenient plug-in of portable music devices and satellite radio receivers.

Exterior Features
The new top-line EX Special Edition models are also distinguished by their exterior appearance. They have 15-inch alloy wheels, a body-colored wing spoiler and special badging.

DX, VP and LX models use a standard 1.7-liter inline 4-cylinder engine capable of 115 horsepower at 6100 rpm and 110 lb-ft of torque at 4500 rpm. It is teamed to a 5-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic setup.

All models under the EX name use a similar 1.7-liter inline 4-cylinder engine. However, it pumps out 127 horsepower at 6300 rpm and 114 lb-ft of torque at 4800 rpm.

Great gas mileage has always been standard with the Civic, and 2005 is no exception to the rule. Even with all the configuration possibilities, the worst rating you can get is 29/38 mpg (city/highway).

Safety and Security
Dual front airbags and an emergency inside trunk release are standard on all 2005 Honda Civics. Antilock brakes become standard at the EX level.
