Explore The World In Your Honda Civic

With just a few easy steps, you can turn your Honda Civic into a camper with enough space to store gear and sleep in Peoria Illinois or anywhere else.

The three essentials for camping and survival are food, shelter, and water. Any model of Honda Civic provides enough space for an individual to store gallons of water, coolers of food, and even mobile stoves. Adventurers can choose whether or not to sleep in their car or make a tent, depending on the weather. At times, sleeping in your car might be the coziest option for the night.

Follow the steps below to convert a Honda Civic into a comfortable sleeping space:

  • Fold the driver and passenger seats forward
  • Collapse the back seats
  • Insert an air pad or sleeping mat in the trunk to create a more level surface with the collapsed seats
  • Add sheets, pillows, sleeping bags, blankets, and a headlight
  • Sweet dreams

Pro Tip: Sleeping bags are often rated at the temperature at which they can keep people warm. A bag rated 10 degrees cooler than the expected low temperature should typically do the trick.

The 2022 Honda Civic can get over 31 MPG city and 40 MPG on the highway* making it one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles to travel in. We always recommend carrying plenty of extra water, fuel for cooking stoves, essential maps, communication devices, and other camping necessities. Take the time to ensure you’re only camping on available lands.

There’s a whole world waiting to be explored. Stop into your closest Honda dealer today for more information on accessories, hatchback options, and more.
