Along with improved fuel economy, the new Civic lineup also delivers more performance, particularly with the Civic Si.

The new engine is anticipated to deliver 200 horsepower with 170 ft-lb of torque. Even with the larger engine and a 22 percent increase in torque, Civic Si achieves an EPA Mileage Estimates highway fuel economy of 31 mpg(1); an increase of 2 mpg when compared to the current model.
The new Civic has a few new tricks, not the least being the new intelligent Multi-Information Display (i-MID) (LX and above). The intelligent Multi-Information Display (i-MID) quickly communicates vital info such as fuel consumption, as well as Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® and turn-by-turn directions for models equipped with available navigation system.
The available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ with voice recognition guides you to your destinations. For 2012, the Navi system includes FM traffic, a subscription-free service that alerts you to traffic conditions.
On EX and above models, Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® makes calling on-the-go easier. Plus, steering wheel-mounted controls put virtually every onboard system a mere button-push away. The USB Audio Interface lets you bring your music library and play it through the audio system, and it will keep your iPod® charged along the way. See how easy it is to pair your phone.
To help keep drivers on course and away from danger, Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) helps sense oversteer or understeer, and then adjusts brake pressure at each wheel and/or reduces engine power to help restore driver control.
Standard 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes (ABS), with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), help you maintain control during hard braking. Properly inflated tires are crucial for safe operation, so the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) alerts the driver when a tire's pressure reaches a significantly low level.
The 2012 Civic has been engineered to help protect you and your passengers when a frontal collision just cannot be avoided. The Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure utilizes a network of connected structural elements to distribute frontal crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle. Standard front, front side and side curtain airbags help reduce the likelihood of injuries in a collision.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has named the 2012 Civic Sedan a "2011 Top Safety Pick," based on more stringent standards implemented in 2010. The Civic Sedan received top ratings in each category including frontal offset, side impact, and rear impact crash safety tests and the new roof-strength test. The Civic Sedan has been named an IIHS Top Safety Pick since 2008.
