Serving Elyria, OH

The Honda Civic is one of the most popular vehicles on the market. With a sculpted exterior, first-class cabin, leading safety technology, and many creature comforts, you can't go wrong with any trim level of the Honda Civic in 2021. Nevertheless, two trims that you might consider looking at are the LX and the EX. The LX is the Civic's base trim level that comes with a number of standard features and amenities. If you crave more features and want a trim with an even more luxurious appearance, the mid-level EX is a great option.


The LX and EX trims of the Honda Civic each have a different engine. The LX and EX have an automatic transmission and standard front-wheel drive. The 2021 Honda Civic LX comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that offers 158 horsepower. Meanwhile, the 2021 Honda Civic EX comes with a turbo engine with a 1.5L displacement, which generates 174 horsepower.


There are some differences between the appearances of the LX and the EX, including the fact that the EX has a slightly more luxurious exterior design. With the LX you can look forward to sculpted headlights with automatic high beams. The base trim has 16-inch steel wheels with full covers. The EX upgrades to beautiful 17-inch alloy wheels instead. The EX also gets some amenities ready to take on wind, rain, and other elements, including heated mirrors and rain-sensing wipers.


A cabin full of features comes even with the base trim level. To start, the 2021 Civic LX gives you automatic climate control, a USB port, and a set of advanced safety aids including lane-keep assist, forward collision mitigation, and adaptive cruise control. Its sound system has a four-speaker layout, and it has an infotainment system with a five-inch display screen. Some additional features are added to the 2021 Civic EX as well, including a sunroof and dual-zone climate control. Both front seats are heated in the Civic EX, and the driver's seat is power-adjustable. Another USB charging port is added to the Civic EX, and the sound system gets a big upgrade with the inclusion of a 7-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and satellite radio. It also has eight speakers instead of four. The EX gains some safety technology too, including Honda's camera-based blind spot monitoring system called Honda LaneWatch™. 1
