You can't be a true Honda fanboy without knowing your chassis code trivia, and now there's a new alphanumeric phrase to remember: FE.

That's correct, the new Civic sedan will be known by the Honda faithful as the FE1 and FE2. Based on the data shown here in an online ordering guide, the 2.0L equipped models are FE2 and the 1.5T is FE1.


(The other models shown here are 2021 MY cars with the 10th place in the VIN designating model year with M for 2021 and N for 2022).
