Hey guys ! So i'm not exactly a 10th gen civic owner yet. Currently own a 7th gen but that's quickly giving out now. Really considering a 10th gen for the next vehicle which is what landed me here. Still unsure of the trim package I would want to go with though... any opinions ?

At least you're getting good use of the 7th generation since they're hitting the 13-15 year mark by now. Did you own that 7th since new or bought it used? Going to the 10th is going to be a big upgrade, even 8th was a big upgrade. To start, are you looking at the coupe or sedan?

Yup, bought it brand new in 02. The civic I have now is a sedan, but i'm leaning towards the coupe. Just kinda worried about space/practicality... would you happen to have an idea ?

Well unlike a traditional coupe, this one is a fast-back, so if you have rear seat passengers they'll be comfortable and have more space than in a 7th, 8th, or even 9th coupe.

Great thing about the 10th is you have rear fold down seats if you have anything that requires that space... a bike, skiis, snowboard, etc:

That actually does look very roomy.. the leather doesn't look so fitted though but maybe its just me haha. Totally looks like it has a lot more room than mine does, even the trunk looks like it has quite a bit more space than mine ?

Trunk space should be around what the 7th generation model is like but since you want a coupe, I guess it's mostly going to be for you, so a worst case scenario would be putting what you can't fit in the trunk, in the rear passenger area. The average 10th Civic coupe owner should have no cargo complaints.

At least you've narrowed it down to the Civic coupe, now you have to decide if you want the comforts of the Touring model or a bit more power with the 1.5-liter turbo trims.

Yeaa the rear passenger area is usually my go to for the regular clothes, bags, etc. Trunk honestly rarely gets used.. but when I use it, for some reason or the other, its always for something thats majority of the time over-sized :|

I really leaning towards the 1.5T trims ... I can only imagine the potential of swapping the turbo out and upping the supporting system

Too bad it doesn't seem the 10th Coupe has hooks for a hanger in the rear passenger area since that would be extremely useful to the overall demographic and often it's just one person in these coupes. Couldn't be that hard to add the hanger hook. On the plus side they did include a lot of storage for rear passengers, good cup holders which can be said to be a bit excessive... but this is Murica after all.

Hangers would have been great. But I've never really heard the term "excessive" used for cup holders ahaha, can you go a bit further on that ?
