2016 Civic is the second Honda with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay

In July Honda announced the 2016 Accord as its first car to support Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, while now it's revealed the next one up is its redesigned 2016 Civic. Our friends at Autoblog have some in person impressions of the new 10th generation model, but we're mostly focused on the compact car's new features. It has a 7-inch touchscreen display in the console (on EX models and above) that's Android-based just like the Pilot, but is of course ready to let your phone take over for apps, navigation and more. Besides a markedly better interior to match a wider and lower frame, features it can have include the ability to brake itself or steer itself back onto the road when it senses danger, and it's the first Honda to have Adaptive Cruise Control with low-speed follow. This year is also the first time we'll be able to get a Civic Type-R in the US, and choices for power include a 2.0-liter 4 cylinder engine, or a 1.5-liter turbocharged version. There's no word on pricing, but the new cars will be at dealerships this fall.
