2018 Honda Civic Red Edition – Exterior Expectations and Luxurious Interior Design
Work, order, discipline and innovation are present in every detail of the new generation of this Honda car. At first glance, it is clear that the dimensions and proportions of the Honda Civic Red Edition 2018 are different from the previous generation. The 2018 Civic Red Edition is longer for 136 millimeters, out of which 30 went for wheelbase. The width is increased by 30 mm, but therefore the height is reduced by 20. A better distribution of mass has been obtained. Even the luggage compartment has been increased, although only five liters. But enough to remain the largest among all hatchback models of the lower middle class with its 478 liters.
In all this, it is very useful for its proper shape. What is good to note is that the 2018 Honda Civic Red Edition are using more quality materials and softer plastic in the cabin. However, materials and plastic surfaces are such that it cannot be said that Honda has pretended to be a premium segment unlike some competitors. The latest 2018 Honda Civic Red Edition has several different color combinations; White Orchid (pearl), Lunar Silver (metallic), Sonic Gray (pearl) and Crystal Black (pearl).
Honda offers decoration vehicles with accessories such as a spoiler on the tailgate, the rear lower. But also a front spoiler, and side sleepers. To many, such an excessive “tuning” will not be appreciated. That’s why it will be interesting through the first models delivered to see if customers decide on a calmer or even more aggressive performance by Civic. The designers tried to be innovative, using recognizable aesthetics to remain faithful to traditions as well as to customers who expect freshness.
They succeeded in doing so, using some of the details that brought us back in the past. It is interesting to point out that the leather steering wheel full of seams offers a full feel in your hand. Although Honda is inclined to the sport range, comfort in this story is also not a little neglected. The position behind the wheel is natural and pleasant. The steering wheel is drastically drawn in depth, can be adjusted low and generally allows the driver to be disturbed. The transmission lever is among the best in the class – it is short, has short strokes and is extremely precise.

To begin with, the 2018 Honda Civic Red Edition will be available only with petrol engines, while diesel engines are expected sometime later. These are brand new engines that are designed to meet stricter exhaust emissions criteria. But also to satisfy the flawless performance of customers in terms of performance and driving characteristics.
The basic offer is a three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with a displacement of a thousand cubic meters with 129 hp. This engine comes as a replacement for the current atmospheric 1.4-liter, from which it is not only more powerful, but also much more pleasant in driving.
The second aggregate, a stronger 1.5-liter turbo gasoline, has four cylinders and 182 hp. Both engines feature a number of technical improvements. Including low inertia turbine, variable-capacity oil pump and special oil injection molding pistons.
We had the opportunity to try both versions, which are standardized with six-speed manual gearboxes and CVTs.
