From the leaked image, the base Honda Civic LX trim starts at $21,700, which will be $450 more than before. However, it has been pointed out that the base trim has gained a few features as standard – such as Apple CarPlay/Android Auto and LED headlights – to justify the increase.
This makes the Honda Civic among the most expensive option among its rivals in the US like the Toyota Corolla and Mazda 3.
