Civic 2.0 NA vs 1.5 Turbo - difference in suspension question    (Score: 1, Normal) 03-23-2019 13:33

Is there a difference in suspension (rear) between the two? I read somewhere that the Turbo versions have “liquid-filled” rear suspensions. If so, is that for performance or is that for a more softer and cushier ride. Thanks for the input.

I believe the distinction is primarily for NVH.

It’s been a few years, but as I recall it’s a difference in some bushings.

It doesn’t seem to make any noticeable difference in handling performance. The 2016 Civic 2.0 6MT coupe that I drove for a week handled really well. And I didn’t really notice a significant difference in NVH, either, for that matter.

"All Civic models utilize front fluid-filled bushings and the EX-T and above trims additionally use rear fluid-filled bushings. These bushings are specifically tuned to provide minimum vibration transfer to the occupants, raising the new Civic to the top of its class in noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) reduction."

The coupes also have different spring and damper tuning for the turbo models.

Thanks for the info Jeff. I’m looking into the Civic Sedan 2.0NA Sport vs Civic Hatch 1.5T Sport. The major difference is Regular fuel for the sedan and Premium recommended/required by the hatchback.
Also a concern is if the sedan trunk gets the same temperature as the main cabin. The hatchback cargo area is within cabin air space so gets the same temp. I’m regularly carrying classical guitar that requires constant temp/humidity.
Leaning towards the hatch though ;-)

Get the Hatch....so much more functional vs. sedan. I have a blue Sport Touring HB and would have gotten the Sport HB 6 spd manual, if it had a moonroof. Living in Michigan, I really wanted a moonroof to brighten the inside of the car. Would have been a no brainer if Honda offered a manual Sport Touring HB. Like you I went back and forth between Si and Sport Touring. In the end, I got the Sport Touring HB. I would have paid $5,000 more if I could have gotten this car with a manual. In the end, I got the CVT model and have found the car to be fun but, not as engaging as the manual Sport. I far prefer manual shifted cars. Sux that you have to give up options when you buy a Honda. Never liked the fact that you could never get the exact car that you want. Makes me look at other brands.
