For others, it's a status symbol or a blank canvas from which to create the ultimate self-expression. The latest 10th generation 2016 Honda Civic 2.0L continues on this versatile theme, with a wide array of body styles and stylish trim options. You can get a Fast & Furious-ready 2016 Civic Coupe to impress all your friends at the school/Pep Boys parking lot.

Under the hood is a standard 2.0L DOHC 4-cylinder that makes a stout 158-hp and 138 lb-ft of torque.

The AEM 21-792C performance cold air intake system increases the volume of cold air by replacing the stock air box with an oversized AEM DryFlow synthetic air filter, surrounded by a heat shield that seals against the underside of the hood to prevent warm engine air from entering the system. The high-flow AEM air filter removes significantly more dirt from the air than a paper filter, and it won't have to be cleaned for up to 100,000 miles (depending on road conditions). That clean air then gets channeled to the throttle body through a wide-diameter AEM intake tube, which is made from mandrel bent aluminum to eliminate airflow restrictions and turbulence. It also has integrated fittings for the mass airflow sensor and crankcase vent tube, so no modifications will be required, and installation will only take about 90 minutes.
