Being a base model, the Civic LX Coupe's technology hand is a little light. Features such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and blind-spot monitoring don't become available on the Civic until you step up to the EX model. However, the LX does get a rearview camera, Bluetooth and auto on/off headlights.
