The first version of the Honda Civic was launched in 1995. It is a good all-round family car with many refinements. It is good to drive and has a record for excellent reliability, which is one of the reasons a used Honda Civic is such a popular purchase.
The latest version of the Honda Civic was introduced in 2006. This has radically different lines from those of the previous version, on both the exterior and the interior, and looks much sportier, though it retains all of the earlier version’s practicality.
It is not just its looks that make the Honda Civic one of the best cars in its class; it also has performance to match. There is a large choice of engines and both the diesel and petrol ones combine great pulling power with excellent economy. The handling is also excellent and adds to the general feeling of confidence you get when driving this car.
There is also a Honda Civic Hybrid Saloon. This has excellent economy and can cruise round town on just its batteries. However, as you might expect it does not have the power of the standard hatchback and the additional weight of the batteries is noticeable.
Honda is renowned for the very high levels of reliability they build into their cars, and this is reflected in their popularity as a good used car buy.
