Seats
Front Seats
The front seats of the Civic have been completely redesigned with wider (+0.8 inches) and more supportive seat construction thanks to progressively tuned foam bolsters. The driving position has been optimized in relation to the steering wheel and vehicle controls. An innovative front seat active head restraint system enhances the seat's ability to minimize the potential for a neck injury in the event of a rear collision.

Both front seats manually recline and move forward and back. The driver's seat features a manual height adjustment control with two inches total of up and down travel. A ratchet-style lever on the left side of the seat makes adjusting the height easy just pull up or push down to move the seat in increments.

Seat construction integrates several new technologies. High strength steel now comprises the majority of the seats internal steel framework. Composite components are used in the base and the seatback to minimize weight and proactively influence seat cushion feedback. The foam cushions employ various densities in the bolsters compared to other areas in the seat to provide the right level of comfort (softness) and support (firmness) in all the right places. The Civic Coupe uses deeper bolsters than the sedan, and the Si improves lateral support by increasing the firmness of the foam in the bolsters of the exceptionally supportive coupe seats. The lower cushion on the Si front seats have extended bolsters that follow the entire length of the cushion for increased lateral hold, whereas the regular coupe seat's lower cushion bolsters taper into the cushion midway. In keeping with the Civic Coupe and Civic Hybrid high tech and sporting nature, open front headrests are used in those vehicles. To improve access into the rear seats on the Civic Coupe, the passenger seat has a one-touch seat back release and slide feature.

Rear Seats
The rear seats provide generous seating surfaces that are both comfortable and functional. To increase storage space, the seats can be folded down to extend the trunk's storage space and accommodate long, bulky items like a snowboard, a 19-inch mountain bike or moving boxes. Civic DX and LX models feature a one-piece folding rear seat. Civic EX and Si models feature a 60/40 split folding rear seat for enhanced people/cargo functionality. A trunk-mounted handle allows the seat to be folded more conveniently, replacing the key access on the rear deck lid of the previous models. The interior has a flat floor, eliminating the typical tunnel that runs the length of the interior. This is most noticeable in the back seat as the flat floor design provides considerably more foot room for middle passengers.

Center Storage Console with Armrest and Beverage Holders
A generous center storage console with a large sliding armrest highlights the expanded and more sophisticated list of interior storage functionality. Even when extended forward its full 3.2 inches, the armrest still provides enough clearance for the cupholder to accommodate a large-size beverage cup. The gearshift lever is positioned centrally and within easy reach, and its compact size allows for thoughtful packaging of additional features on the console such as a storage tray in front of and behind the shifter (with room for wireless phones) and a business card holder on the right side. The instrument panel provides multiple storage zones - a spacious traditional glove box, a center stack lower pocket/tray. Additionally, every door on the sedan and coupe has a large pocket ideal for maps, papers and the coupe has a dedicated spot for water bottles.
