Power exits through the front wheels by way of a five-speed automatic transmission. The object of the Civic's game is efficiency, so there is no Sport or manual shift mode to get the driver's hopes up about fun.
Information is organized into three major areas. The first area is this upper brow, where the most important information (speed, fuel levels, and fuel economy) is kept close in the driver's field of view.
In the LX and EX models, the I-MID also resides in the upper brow where it displays a variety of secondary information. For example, here it displays metadata from iPod playback, complete with album artwork.
Farther down in the center of the dashboard is the optional navigation display. The maps are of the same low resolution that we've been groaning about for almost a decade now, but the rest of the infotainment system has seen upgrades.
