HOW TO Reset Engine Oil Life in Honda Civic 2016-2019 in 3 ways.

About this model: 

The tenth generation Civic is based on an all-new Honda compact global platform. The sedan was first unveiled in September 2015, for the 2016 model year.

The tenth-generation Civic features a new fastback exterior design, with the rear C-pillar flowing into the tailgate. The front of the car features a new chrome wing design that flows across the top of the headlamps.

The interior of the new Civic likewise features major design changes. Unlike the split bi-level speedometer and tachometer of its predecessor, the EX and above trim levels of the tenth generation Civic consolidates these instruments into a fully customisable, all digital “Driver Information Interface” incorporating a 7-inch LCD screen positioned directly behind the steering wheel and in the driver’s line of sight. The LX trim instrumentation consists of a large analog tachometer that surrounds a digital speedometer and other digital displays.

Civic variants include sedan, coupe, five-door hatchback, Si trims, and Type-R models.

Honda claims the 10th generation Civic Si trim (which is the 8th generation of Civic to offer an Si trim level) reaches 60mph from 0mph in 7.0 seconds, though Car&Driver was able to bring a 2017 Civic Si Coupe to 60mph in 6.3 seconds.

The 2017 Civic Si also features adaptive dampers, stiffening of other suspension components, including mounting points, anti-roll bars, springs and bushings.
