MSRPs for the 2015 Honda Civic family rise by $100 for the new model year, with the cost of the 2015 Honda Civic Coupe now at $18,290 and the 2015 Honda Civic Sedan starting at $18,490. It's a relatively small price bump, although consumers should keep in mind that the starting point of the 2014 models already topped the segment.
Here's a quick pricing leaderboard for context, using each nameplate's lowest MSRP, with year-to-date sales performance also provided. Remember, though, while other entries do offer coupe versions, all the vehicles listed here—except for the 2015 Honda Civic—offer a sedan as the entry point to the lineup:

On the other hand, the 2015 Honda Civic does come fairly well equipped, and the new SE sedan model will be a particularly high-value proposition.
