As standard, all of the three engines are mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox while the 1.8-liter gasoline unit can be linked to an automatic transmission for an additional 1,385 pounds. Manual modes get as standard the stop/start system plus the Econ switch that according to the Japanese automaker “adopts specific settings to improve fuel consumption”.  The new Civic will also sport the company’s Intelligent Multi-Information Display which is in fact a 5-inch screen mounted in the dashboard that displays useful info like, audio and climate settings, idle stop status and mpg.
