Honda Civic Performance-Enhancing Technology

Honda Civic Harrisburg PANo matter which version you ultimately choose, each 2020 Honda Civic comes equipped with plenty of cutting-edge tech to keep you moving.

Drivers who stick with the standard sedan, hatchback, or coupe have the option to pair the engine with either a 6-speed manual transmission or a smooth-shifting Continuously Variable Transmission. These models also come with Honda’s legendary Eco Assist™ system that helps you tailor your driving habits to maximize efficiency.

The more athletic Si and R-Type models rely solely on the manual transmission but feature a Helical Limited-Slip Differential for tighter cornering. The R-Type also adds special Rev-Match Control to help maintain consistent power when you need it most.

Maintaining the New Honda Civic MPG

Despite its superior engineering, there are a few things you can do to help extend your time between fuel-ups, including:

Change Your Oil Every 5,000 to 7,000 Miles

Honda Civic MPG | Faulkner Honda Harrisburg PAOld motor oil weakens acceleration, causing the engine to work harder. This results in burning through a tank of gas more quickly.

Check Your Tire Health Monthly

Always make sure the PSI levels reflect what’s printed inside your vehicle’s owner’s manual. You also should keep an eye on each tire’s tread depth and any developing blisters or cracks.

Limit Extra Cargo Weight

While the Civic Hatchback boasts an incredible 46.2 cubic feet of available cargo space, storing heavy items inside the trunk can cause a drop in efficiency over time.
