Mel Rapton Honda

The knowledgeable sales team at Mel Rapton Honda understands why the Honda Civic has maintained a reputation for reliability, high resale value, practicality, and safety. It’s long been a popular vehicle for first-time drivers and commuters. We think you’ll love the new generation of this classic model, with its roomy interiors and life-saving safety features.

With four models to choose from, the Civic offers innovative features at a price-point the budget-savvy will appreciate. The Honda Civic EX sits right in the middle of the line with lots of standard features and enviable fuel efficiency of 32 city/42 highway.


With ample seating for five, you can make your car your own with seating and trim options. Roomy front seats make this vehicle a comfortable commuter car. Choose leather-trimmed seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob to add a touch of sleek sophistication.

Whether we like it or not, our vehicles become an extension of home. Because of this, we try to make our vehicles as comfortable and safe as possible. The addition of the 8-way power driver’s seat is just one way we accommodate our drivers. With a lower cushion that tilts up and down to get your seat position just the way you like it, you can look forward to getting comfortable behind the wheel.

There are plenty of amenities available for the interior, too. Heated seats for the driver and front passenger are available, and heating for outboard rear passengers on some models. If you want a better view, check out the power moonroof that provides fresh air and a warm breeze with one touch.

Our 60/40 split rear seatback opens up an already spacious trunk. You don’t have to make tough choices on what to leave behind - take it all.

Safety Features

Honda has long been at the forefront of innovations in vehicle safety. Now, more than ever before, our commitment to your safety is paramount.

Passive Safety Features are standard on all our Honda vehicles. Don’t let these less-obvious features fool you into thinking they’re not as important or as useful. They may be subtle, but they’re life-saving just the same.

    • ACE Body Structure. This Honda-exclusive body design enhances protection and crash compatibility in front-end collisions by distributing crash energy throughout the vehicle.

    • Front Seat Belts with Pretensioner and Load Limiter. When a strong frontal impact is detected, the front seat belts instantly retract, then give slightly if the load exceeds a certain amount, reducing the pressure it applies to the occupant’s chest.

    • Advanced Airbag Technology. Every Honda is equipped with advanced front airbags to help prevent injury. Select models are also equipped with SmartVent front side airbags, side curtain airbags with rollover sensor, and front knee airbags, providing further protection.

The Honda Sensing intelligent suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies was designed with complete coverage in mind. Features include:

    • Road Departure Mitigation System. If you cross detected lanes without signaling, this system gently adjusts steering and braking to keep you in your lane.

    • Adaptive Cruise Control. Not only do you get to choose your preferred speed, but you can also select the distance you’d like to keep between your vehicle and the traffic ahead. Our system maintains both and allows you to keep your attention on the road ahead.

    • Blind Spot Information System. Our sensors detect whether vehicles are in your blind spot and indicate their presence with a subtle light in the corresponding side-view mirror—no more twisting and turning. Just relax and let our sensors show you the way!

Be sure to ask your sales team member about all the safety features available and standard on the model in which you’re most interested. It’s a good idea to think through the features you need most and those that bring peace of mind with so much to choose from.
