Ok cheers, try and watch that tonight....For information according to Radio Times, Fifth Gear, Channel 5, Friday 9 Dec, 7:30 pm , Jonny Smith test drives the new Civic in southern Spain.
As an aside I think it would be much more relevant to most of us to see a test drive on our mostly crap roads
They are ok reviews. If you'd rather buy a Golf or a Focus, then fair enough.I dont find these positive:
Honda Civic 1.8 review - Autocar.co.uk
Honda Civic 1.8 i-VTEC EX GT | First Drives | Auto Express
This car is the last to market in the Golf and Focus segment yet fails to steal any lead, that to me is a fail!
I guess i just hoped for a class leader at the prices they are asking!
I remember a whole Honda advert campaign about the use of the word "OK" as being a make do kind of term!.They are ok reviews. If you'd rather buy a Golf or a Focus, then fair enough.
The prices for most models are pretty much unchanged by the way. It is only the EX models that have been increased.
yeah cos the 9th gens performance, co2's and prices are pants.???Well for what it's worth his sum up was clear - if you want a Civic buy a 8G!
It is not true to say that performance is generally better. It is only the case with 2.2 diesel.Performance is BETTER
gearing maybe, but power overall is up (however small the increase, 2bhp petrol, 10 bhp diesel) and the 9th gen is generally like for like lighter!!!It is not true to say that performance is generally better. It is only the case with 2.2 diesel.
petrol versions will be generally slower and less dynamic and no CTR. partly because of the high gear ratios and partly because of the weight (there is no CTR).
I guess that if you would like to keep up with the 8 gen, you need to get a low-spec 9 gen to save couple of kg's.
