Through an autocross, the Civic's all-season Firestone tires were holding the car back. Understeer happens early and often, which is a shame because the Civic's suspension keeps body motions nicely controlled. Better tires would do wonders to help improve front end bite.
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.
