About Honda Civic

Just one year after introducing an all-new Civic sedan and coupe, Honda isn't resting. Instead, it's doubling down on this best-selling compact car. The 2017 Honda Civic lineup expands with a stylish and practical hatchback, and Honda is broadening its appeal to driving enthusiasts with the availability of manual transmissions for the up-level turbocharged engine in standard models as well as the new performance-focused Civic Si and Civic Type R variants. All these factors help the Honda Civic maintain its benchmark status as it fights competitors ranging from longtime-archrival Toyota Corolla to newer nameplates like the Chevrolet Cruze and Kia Forte. With its variety of models, excellent-yet-efficient driving manners, and an enviable history of reliability and resale value, it's little wonder the Civic was crowned KBB.com's 2017 Best Buy Award overall winner.

"Saw this car at the auto show last year, test drove it that day and had to have one. Finally purchase a slightlly used one last month and I love it! I have driven an Acura Integra GSR manual sedan driver for 20 years. I really appreciate having a sporty, fun to drive car that you dont see every day. This car nailed it for me. My EX trim is just perfect with all the bells and whisles at a reasonable price. I also own a 2016 Mazda cx-5 grand touring that now it sits in the driveway. My hatchback in black looks awesome and can really accelerate when you have the opportunity. It is also pleasant to drive in everyday traffic and it still has plenty of power in eco mode. I think the seats are very comfortable and the seat heaters warm up fast compared to other cars. The only thing it could use is a blind spot monitoring and cross traffic alert when backing up. My Mazda spoiled me with those features. The stereo sound is adequate but could do better if equiped with a Bose or other high end system. Very small issues overall. Believe me, you will love driving this car. Cant wait to get out there driving again tomorrow."

Pros: "Great performance, looks and value."

Cons: "small car ride"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"The most impressive feature based on comments from complete strangers who have commented is how absolutely gorgeous it is. From my perspective this car couldnt be better unless the ride was softened a little by some miracle while still maintaining the excellent handling and high level of performance. The turbo coupled up to the 1.5 liter 4 cylinder performs like a much larger engine. Even with the great performance it still delivers over 40 mpg overall."
