Honda's compact is relatively roomy and reliable, but there are 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 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 sporty Si uses a powerful 201-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that sounds invigorating and delivers a commendable 29-mpg overall with the six-speed manual. But the 40-mpg Hybrid has been discontinued. A new Civic is scheduled to debut this fall, promising better performance, improved refinement and a more spacious, upgraded cabin with a high level of connectivity.
