Review: Honda Civic | Car Reviews | Auto Express

4 stars for everything except styling, which got 3.

For : Comfortable ride, improved efficiency, low running costs
Against : Noisy petrols, poor rear visibility, bland styling
You’ll get a good balance between fun and comfort in the new Civic. Thanks to new fluid-filled rear suspension bushes, it is almost as good as a Golf at soaking up bumps while the new electric power steering system is smooth and accurate. It doesn’t have much feedback, though, so a Focus is still more involving. Thanks to its slippery aerodynamics the Civic doesn’t suffer from wind noise – so it’s pretty quiet on the motorway. As for engines, the choices are a 99bhp 1.4-litre petrol, a 140bhp 1.8-litre petrol and a 148bhp 2.2-litre diesel. The latter is the best all-rounder, as it has lots of acceleration and is very economical. The 1.8-litre petrol needs lots of revs to perform its best, at which point it can become noisy.
