I currently drive a 2013 Accord EX-L and I am deciding between a 2016 Accord EX-L with Sensing or a 2016 Civic Touring.Hello from Arkansas! I love my new Civic - I traded my 2013 Accord EX-L for this awesome geek car! I chose the Lunar Silver Metallic.
My commute is similar in distance... about 13 miles but a bit more mixed City/Highway. Like you fill ups are a every other week activity. I enjoy not going to the gas station weekly.The one negative I have right now is the size of the gas tank. With my Accord I was used to it lasting me almost 2 weeks on a normal commute to and from work (12 miles each way and almost all highway/interstate). I'm lucky if I get 8 days out of the tank in the Civic. I'm sitting at the 34mpg right now - hopefully that will get a bit better.
