10 Things You Should Know About the 2011 Honda Civic
#7. The Civic Offers an Affordable and Versatile Compact Option
The Honda Civic DX starts out with an MSRP of $15,805, which is in the same ballpark as competitors from Mazda (the 2011 Mazda MAZD3 sedan) and Toyota (the Toyota Corolla). Few other compact car lineups can match the versatility of the Civic, however, with its coupe, hybrid, natural gas and Si sport models representing a range of choices that most other automakers address with an array of different name plates.
Another interesting aspect of Honda's Civic pricing strategy has to do with its attitude towards options - as in, there really aren't any. This means that buyers head into a Honda dealership to be faced with well-defined trim levels that don't hide any surprises in terms of missing equipment or additional charges at signing time.
