If you’re looking for a car that doesn’t compromise on tech and won’t break the bank, the Honda Civic is your best bet.
That may come as a surprise to many: “High-tech” and “futuristic” aren’t exactly words that come to mind when you hear Honda. But the Honda Civic EX with the automaker’s Sensing package just won Kelley Blue Book’s 2017 Best Auto Tech Value Award.
Scroll down for a closer look at the car and its features:
First, a quick primer on the car itself. The Honda Civic sedan comes in five different trims, but Kelley Blue Book recommends getting the EX to get the best bang for your buck.
The Honda Civic EX comes with a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that gets a respectable 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque. It also has pretty standard mileage for a sedan, at 31 MPG in the city and 40 MPG on a highway.
The Honda Civic EX starts at $21,140, but the Sensing package will tack on an extra $1,000. That’s a great deal: for just under $23,000, owners get a suite of driver assistance features.
