New driver in the house and need a vehicle that is safe and reliable?
A 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbo engine that’s punchy, sounds decent, performs well, and packs enough low-end torque that you rarely need to get it spinning much beyond idle to cruise though traffic.
Thing is, there are many reasons you buy a Honda Civic – and few of them have anything much to do with how it drives. Mostly, you buy a Honda Civic because it’s a Honda Civic, and likely not your first, or second. The Civic is cemented onto the mental checklist of shoppers as one of the smartest choices for long-term ownership – thanks to reliability, safety, owner satisfaction, and the high likelihood that owning one won’t cause you any grief.
Power and fuel efficiency:
On this front, Civic’s most valuable asset is a 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbo engine that’s punchy, sounds decent, performs well, and packs enough low-end torque that you rarely need to get it spinning much beyond idle to cruise though traffic in no particular rush. Give it a bootful of gas, and you get a nice shove into your seat, and watch the digital speedometer crank upwards in quick order. The CVT transmission works nicely with the engine, maximizing performance and mileage without much sense that there are no gears to shift. It even pretends to upshift for a more conventional feel at full throttle. The way most drivers drive their Civic most of the time, it just feels like a regular automatic.
Up front, two attributes hit hardest: maximization of storage space, and handy touches. Within reach are a reconfigurable centre console, sliding cupholders with a bin beneath, a generous dash storage cubby with a wireless charging pad (and a handy charging cable pass-through in case your phone doesn’t have wireless charging), and power outlets galore. There are additional pockets on the doors, and smaller ones on the centre tunnel. It’s all well thought-out, in terms of helping occupants keep smaller items organized, out of the way, and charging, as needed.
