Honda Civic Overview

Honda's widely sold compact is relatively roomy and reliable, but there are more enjoyable competitors that are quieter and feel more substantial. Rear seating is fairly spacious for this class. The EX version adds automatic climate control but also includes a confusing touch-screen audio system. The 143-hp, 1.8-liter four-cylinder revs smoothly and is mated to a largely unobtrusive CVT. We recorded 30-mpg overall and 32-mpg in the HF version. The Hybrid returned an excellent 40-mpg overall. The sporty Si coupe and sedan uses a powerful 201-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that revs easily, sounds invigorating, and delivers a commendable 29-mpg overall with the six-speed manual. All versions come with a standard backup camera.
