If you’ve got your sights set on the Honda Civic as your next car to take on your adventures across the hilly streets of Santa Ana, Mission Viejo, and Tustin, CA, then you’ve probably done your research. However, there are more factors to learn about, so you can be absolutely certain it’s the right sedan for you. You may ask, “How much does the Honda Civic weigh?”

Our team at Norm Reeves Honda Superstore Irvine is here to delve in deep and help you learn about the Civic weight and how it varies. We’ll also discuss factors involving your vehicle weight and how it can affect your performance.

Honda Civic Weight by Trim

Since the Honda Civic offers four different trim levels, each with its own set of unique features, components, and even different engines, the weight can vary depending on the one that you select. To start, one of the heaviest components of your vehicle is the engine.

Drivers have the option of selecting the available 1.5L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, which is able to produce 180 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. The EX trim of the 2022 Honda Civic achieves an EPA-estimated 33 city/42 highway/36 combined MPG.1

These engines offer different weights, which can help explain the variations from one trim to the other:

  • LX: 2,877 pounds (2.0L engine)
  • Sport: 2,935 pounds (2.0L engine)
  • EX: 3,004 pounds (1.5L engine)
  • Touring: 3,077 pounds (1.5L engine)

The weight difference isn’t huge, with the biggest chasm only being 200 pounds between the base LX trim and the highest trim, the Touring.

How Does Weight Affect My Vehicle’s Performance?

As you’ve seen above, the Civic offers slight variations with its curb weight across the varying trims. You also may have noticed the difference in fuel economy between the two engines. Weight can play a major factor in your fuel efficiency. However, those readings are based off of curb weight and a single driver.

If you’ve got yourself and your passengers on board, this could affect your fuel economy because it causes the engine to work harder and burn up more fuel than normal. This is especially true when you also have some heavy materials in the trunk. The excess weight will reduce your vehicle’s fuel efficiency.
