2016 Honda Civic EX-L vs Touring
Even when you've already decided which new vehicle to buy, it can be challenging to sort out all the different trim levels and options available. That's even more true if you're trying to decide between the fully-loaded, higher-end models -- more features can cause even more confusion. Does the 2016 Honda Civic EX-L have every amenity you're looking for in a brand new car, or is it worth upgrading to the Civic Touring? At Continental Honda, we like to help simplify your decision process by offering detailed comparisons between different versions of the same vehicle. Here's how the top models in the 2016 Civic line, the Honda Civic EX-L vs Honda Civic Touring, stack up.
Both the EX-L and the Touring use the more powerful of the 2016 Civic's two engine options, a 174-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder. Both perky and fun to drive while still remarkably fuel-efficient, you won't see any difference here. Civic EX-L and Touring vehicles all include a standard rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, the Honda LaneWatch backup camera, luxurious leather trim for the seats, steering wheel, and shift knob, and a 7-inch touchscreen display for the audio system, which includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM and HD radio.
2016 Honda Civic Touring Standard Features
Some Civic EX-L models include a satellite-linked navigation system as an optional extra. Some EX-L vehicles include the Honda Sensing suite of active safety and driver assistance technology. On the Civic Touring, though, both of these high-tech packages are standard. The Civic Touring also comes with a premium 450-watt audio system, with 10 speakers plus a subwoofer: that's much more powerful than the Civic EX-L's 180-watt version.
A few additional luxury details set the Civic Touring apart from the rest of the 2016 Civic lineup. Touring vehicles get automatic LED headlights, as well as side-mirror integrated turn indicators. They also include rain-sensing windshield wipers and heated outboard rear seats. Also, chrome door handles, because nothing makes your neighbors jealous like a shiny door handle. Seriously, it's all in the details.
