Overview of the {make_model}

Learn about the 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.

Safety

Newer Honda Civic models offer advanced safety features that help you anticipate and avoid potential dangers, such as standard full-length side airbags and four-wheel anti-locking braking system (ABS) on models as old as 2008. The Civic also features electronic brake-force distribution (EBD) on most models, which optimizes your braking power based on the weight distribution in the car.

Standard safety features on newer models from 2018 include:

  • Hill Start Assist to prevent you from rolling backwards on a hill
  • Advanced Compatibility Engineering, which protects passengers during a collision by evenly distributing the front impact energy
  • Six airbags
  • Child safety features, such as rear door locks, Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH)
  • Energy-absorbing hood for pedestrian safety

Interior

The Honda Civic has a wealth of interior styles and colours to choose from, but it's worth noting that these are usually associated with particular trims. It comes down to your budget and preference—for instance, black fabric is offered on the low-end models, while mid-range to high-end models feature black leather.

For an additional price, drivers can also select these features, available across later 2000s models:

  • Heated front and rear seats
  • Power adjustment seating
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel and mounted controls
  • Soft-touch instrument panels made with durable, higher grade materials for a pleasant look and feel
  • Multi-functional centre console storage
  • Climate control for both driver and passenger

Technology

The Honda Sensing Technology system is designed to make your journey safer by helping you in emergencies. New Civics from 2018 come with a forward collision warning system, collision mitigation warning system, lane departure warning system and blind-spot display.

The Civic's technology suite extends beyond its safety features. For example, the model has a 7" display audio system—although some drivers say this is difficult to operate.

Older models also have plenty of tech, such as full power accessories, keyless entry, a four-speaker CD/MP3 audio system and an auxiliary audio jack for enjoying your personal playlist—all standard on the LX trim from 2008.

Space

Some drivers claim the Honda Civic lacks height. However, the sedan models have been used for decades as a family-friendly vehicle that offers plenty of foot room and trunk space. We recommend test-driving different models to decide which interior is the most comfortable for you.

Comfort

Passengers in both front and back seats will enjoy ample legroom, comfortable seating and enough room to fit a family of five. Enjoy long road trips while sitting on both fabric and leather seating. The Civic sedan is more spacious in the back, so older kids can stretch out.
