I don't think anybody is "sulking" because they didn't select the Civic.
I think that most people's concerns surround the inconsistency and inaccuracy of What Car's reviews.
I don't care what they "factor in" or don't "factor in", there's no way in the world that the Corsa should be the car of the year.
I believe, like most others here, that What Car's review of the Civic is way out of line compared to other Car mags. To give the Civic a three star rating is nonsense. The average reader review rating is four stars which is much more representative.
Furthermore, if you look at the "againsts" of their overall assessment they say: "The Civic suffers from jiggly ride quality, cramped rear seats and poor visibility".
Sorry, but I just can't accept any of that except that you do need to get used to the visibility, but I wouldn't classify it as "poor".
