The Civic is substantial, refined, and capable. Both the 2.0-liter four-cylinder and optional 1.5-liter turbo deliver good fuel economy, while the zesty turbo brings more fun. The automatic transmission amplifies the noise of the base engine; it works better with the turbo. The ride is comfortable, handling is precise, and the quiet interior has a lot of storage space. However, the car's low stance means doing the limbo to get in and out. In addition, the front seats lack adjustable lumbar, which could cause discomfort on a long drive. We didn't like Honda's unintuitive infotainment system--the only way to avoid it is to get the base trim level. Forward collision warning is available. A new hatchback version is available.

  • Impressive fuel economy

  • Low to the ground, making access difficult
  • Infuriating touch-screen radio on EX and higher trim lines

Best Version to Get

We'd stick to the base LX trim. Its 2.0-liter four-cylinder provides great fuel economy and adequate power, and you get to avoid the infuriating touch-screen radio that comes on every other trim. All in all, it's a lot of car for just over $20,000. If you can find an LX with the Honda Se...
