Does an update a day keep the critics away? That's what Honda seems to think with the Civic, which receives its third major update in three years for 2014 — this time mostly for the coupe. It should keep the popular nameplate relevant, even as other automakers vie for attention with ever-better alternatives.
Available as a sedan or coupe, the 2014 Honda Civic combines efficiency and quality to fit the bill for many small-car shoppers, but some will find the coupe's stiffened suspension too firm.
Trim levels include the LX, EX, EX-L and high-performance Si. Sedans also come in a high-efficiency HF trim, and you can buy a Civic Natural Gas sedan in 37 states.

This year we tested a Civic EX-L coupe and a Si coupe.
Exterior & Styling
The sedan, which received visual updates in 2013, carries over, while the 2014 coupe has received its first styling update since 2012, the year Honda redesigned both body styles. New, gaping fog-light portals give the Civic coupe its most dramatic expression since the nameplate's mid-2000s Stormtrooper redesign. The portals overtake the front bumper, and they'll garner stronger reactions than anything else on the car. Honda says it altered the coupe's hood, fenders, headlights, taillights and grille.
