Powertrain Options

2016 Honda CivicA standard 158-horsepower 2.0-liter I-4 engine powers the 2016 Honda Civic. It comes with a base six-speed manual transmission and offers a continuously variable transmission (CVT) The latter provides smooth shifts and helps to produce an efficient performance.

Those looking for more power can opt to for the 1.5-liter turbocharged I-4 engine. This generates 174 horsepower as well as notable fuel economy.

The 2016 Nissan Sentra comes equipped with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine and offers an available CVT. Together they can create a decent performance, but this powertrain only produces 130 horsepower. And since this engine is the only option available for the Sentra, you don’t have an option to upgrade for more power.
