Nothing Can Stop This Sedan – Comparing The 2019 Honda Civic Sedan in Katy

The 2019 Honda Civic Sedan in Katy is not a vehicle to be trifled with. It has incredible horsepower and style, but there are more features to brag about. Without wasting any more time, keep reading to see how the Civic and Kia Forte compare.

We are going to start today’s comparison strong, by jumping into the more “fun” reasons why the Civic Sedan is better than the Forte. To help with the morning rush to work, the Civic comes standard with a remote vehicle starting system, which can be activated from inside the house. This also kicks on the climate control system to set the cabin at your preferred temperature before sliding in. When rolling through the drive-thru for your morning coffee, you’ll find that the front power windows open and close completely with a single touch of the switch, making it more convenient when pulling up and driving away. Once you step out of the Civic and head into work, if you happen to notice that you accidentally left the windows rolled down, you won’t have to start up the car to close them. Using the outside door handle, the driver can close all windows without having to start the engine. 

You might not think about it this factor, but a massive player in a vehicle’s traction and handling are the tires and wheels. To provide better traction, the Civic’s standard tires are much larger than the Forte’s (215/55R16 vs. 195/65R15). They also have a lower 55 series profile (height to width ratio), providing a stiffer sidewall than the Kia Forte to help with handling. Other factors that contribute with the Civic’s ride and handling are the fully independent front and rear suspension systems. This permits a better angle for gripping the pavement, but the Kia Forte only has a semi-independent rear suspension system so that the ride won’t be as smooth or efficient.

With safety features, the more advanced they are, the safer you will feel. The Civic Sedan has seat and vehicle speed sensors to determine how much power is used in the airbags. These smart airbags will deploy at different levels of force to better protect passengers of all sizes. In case you’re in an accident and are unable to call for help, you can rely on the HondaLink Assist to send emergency personnel to your aid. By using GPS, this feature can sense when the airbags are deployed and will “call for help” without you having to do anything. The Kia Forte doesn’t have smart features in their side airbags, or a GPS response system.

It’s A Win-Win Situation – Highlighting The 2019 Honda Accord and Civic in Katy

We’re changing up today’s topic a bit and highlighting the 2019 Honda Accord and Civic in Katy instead of making a comparison. Together, these two vehicles have their own unique design, but also share similar features, so keep reading to learn all about these two powerhouses.

Whether you choose the Accord or Civic, you won’t have FOMO because each Honda has an incredible powertrain to boast about. The Accord gives you the choice of three advanced powertrains; a 1.5-liter and 2.0-liter turbocharged engine and a next-generation two-motor hybrid engine. For the 2.0 turbo engine, a 10-speed automatic comes standard for ultimate acceleration and lower engine speed on the highway. The Civic has a fully independent suspension system and two transmissions to choose from; the turbocharged engine produces an impressive 174 horsepower, while the 2.0-liter engine gives 158 horsepower with an MPG rating of 38* on the highway. Both the Accord and Civic host a standard continuously variable transmission to keep the engine at its peak horsepower indefinitely for maximum acceleration.

With the Accord and Civic, you’ll have 5 trims to choose from, each one building up from the previous. Starting with the Accord, you have the option to select the Hybrid, Sport, EX, EX-L, or Touring depending on your preference. If you need a moonroof, then start with the EX and go up, or maybe you want everything from Apple CarPlay™ Integration to Mobile Hotspot Capability, then choose Touring. The Civic gives you the LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, and Touring for their lineup, and the features range from a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera to a 450-Watt Premium Audio System.

When you take a seat inside the Honda Civic or Accord, you’ll find both interiors to be equally luxurious. The spacious interior for both Honda’s can fit five while offering ample amounts of cargo space and elegant detailing like leather-trimmed seats. If you find yourself with more gear than people, you can also utilize the available 60/40 split fold-down rear seat and pack up just about anything you desire. The technology found throughout the Accord and Civic is equally impressive, with a 7-inch display touch-screen that can house your favorite apps for music, podcasts, and more.
