Honda Civic Summary

The Honda Civic has been the best-selling car in Canada for two decades. Versatile, affordable, and loaded with exceptional safety features, the Civic is a solid investment. When treated right, the budget-friendly vehicle will remain dependable for years to come.

Five trim levels allow you to customize your exterior look and interior comfort, from subtle and subdued to decked-out and sporty. Some drivers may notice a lack of headroom—however, the one-touch moonroof makes the Civic feel more spacious. The Civic's lack of all-wheel drive is perhaps balanced by its high safety standards, which are getting more advanced every year.
