It's been an astonishing decade to watch automobiles progress into mini supercomputers.

Now every vehicle on the road is laden with tons of sensors and technology that has some folks exclaiming that they're more sophisticated than modern airplanes. That's a pretty tall order, if I do say so myself.

Of course there is a cost that comes with this, quite literally. And you don't have to look too far to see where it trickles down.

Pricing information on the 2014 Honda Civic just has been announced via a company-issued press release and the base model starts at a rather surprising $18,190.

Though I must readily admit I don't follow the Civic market like I used to, I am pretty confident most folks still opt for the EX model — I used to have an EX, EX stands for "baller" — you're talking about a barrier of entry at $20,290 for a five-speed coupe and $21,090 for a CVT sedan.

2014 Honda Civic Goes On-Sale Today with a Restyled Coupe, Higher Tech, Better Fuel Efficiency and an Improved Driving Experience


12/04/2013 - TORRANCE, Calif.

-Coupe styling changes accentuate the Civic's sporty and youthful appearance
-Available technology additions include a 7-inch touch-screen Display Audio system and next generation HondaLink™ connectivity
-LaneWatch™ blind spot display comes to Civic line-up
-All-new CVT option increases performance and fuel efficiency

The significantly enhanced 2014 Honda Civic goes on-sale today with a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) starting at $18,190 for the Civic LX Coupe and $18,390 for the Civic LX Sedan.

Extensive fresh and dynamic exterior styling updates on the Civic Coupe and premium interior refinements to all models further enhance the Civic aesthetic appeal. New available features on the 2014 Civic include the 7-inch capacitive touch-screen Display Audio, LaneWatch™ blind spot monitor and Smart Entry with Push Button start. The 2014 Civic also marks the introduction of the HondaLink™ Next Generation connected-car technology. HondaLink™ is an application-based platform that allows a seamless integration between a user's smartphone and the car, providing access to online and cloud-based content and information.

An all-new CVT is available on the gasoline only powered Coupe and Sedan. The CVT enhances responsiveness by providing quicker and smoother acceleration and due to its wider ratio range and reduced internal friction, the CVT helped the LX Coupe and LX and EX Sedans to an improvement of 2 mpg city and 1 mpg combined for EPA fuel economy ratings of 30/39/33 city/highway/combined2.

The Civic Coupe is available in LX and EX trims with a 5-speed manual transmission or the new CVT and EX-L and EX-L Navi versions with CVT. The Civic Sedan comes in LX 5-speed manual or CVT and EX, EX-L and EX-L Navi with CVT. A Civic Sedan HF with CVT is also available.
