Honda has the ninth generation of the Civic ready. Today we made the first kilometers of the new compact class in southern Spain.
The sharp edge is a little off at the Civic. The characteristic 'closed' nose and frivolous details like triangular exhaust pipes have been replaced by a more mundane vehicles, which nevertheless still clearly recognizable as a Civic. But not only in terms of its design is Honda's compact mid-range bit of his wild oats, because during the first test miles in the introduction that the Civic is more comfortable than its predecessor.
That was not a plank suspended car hard, but his successor takes it up another notch softer. The character of the rear axle is: where the front suspension is pretty heavy, the rear springs (called torsion) remarkably smoothly. While that makes for a pleasant comfortable ride on the highway and proper processing of irregularities, but leave the rear of the car too much sway to our liking. At fast corners but the wheels keep good contact with the ground and gives the main Civic trust, though he's at first sight a fun steering group handed over its predecessor. This is also partly due to the rather mild electric power steering ...
The complete driving impression of the new Honda Civic can be read in AutoWeek 48, as from Wednesday, November 30 for sale everywhere. We are also currently working on making a video that you also will find on this site.
