Seems pretty positive:

Well, it's a decidedly more satisfying Civic; that's for sure. It's more fun to drive, quieter, better finished, more economical and (slightly) easier to see out of compared to its predecessor.

Some may not like its rather heavy-looking rear end, and the clever folding rear seat isn't all that comfortable for traditional use. It's a shame, too, that some of the unique features like the aluminum door handles have gone.

But there's no question that this is a better Civic overall. It's not revolutionary, and still not very European either, but as hatchbacks go, it's an upgrade that needed to happen.

Quite a good review and from the comments, some would like to see it in the USA

Love this part...

Some of those gripes were no surprise when you consider that plenty of British Civic buyers were on the older side, their age-stiffened necks struggling to allow them to see past the shallow rear windscreen and a pair of exceptionally fat D-pillars.
The forum software should auto post this whenever some starts bitching about poor rear visibility in the 8th/9th gens lol

Interesting write up. I'm a great believer in the proof is in the pudding approach. Lets see how they perform once they are out in General Population, then we'll see how good they really are.
