Just needs to be coupled to an auto gearbox and I could be sucked in @ 75mpg (subject to servicing costs)
The guy is quite positive too about the Civic...
I rather like the rest of the new Civic. It looks good, it's nicely made, the cabin is the right side of barmy to engage the driver, and it rides a lot better than the old one thanks to fluid-filled bushes and tweaks to the rear torsion-beam suspension. Not a natural Honda, then, but a perfectly decent one.
