The front of the Civic Coupe remains exactly the same as the Civic sedan, even down to the drivetrain offerings.

As with the sedan, LED headlights can be had at high trim levels. Two engines are available: a two-liter four cylinder and a more powerful turbocharged 1.5-liter four cylinder.

For the Civic Coupe, Honda lowered the roofline by an inch and shortened the rear overhang, resulting in a car 5.5-inches shorter than the sedan in overall length.

Taking out the rear doors allowed for a raked roofline and large rear fenders.
