Honda Civic 1.8 test drive and car review

Honda’s Civic model has always been a popular one. The 1.8-litre petrol engine is quick to respond and offers great performance, the styling has been defined as daring and futuristic, appealing to the style-conscious drivers.

As for practicality the Civic does have plenty of leg and headroom and the boot is one of if not the biggest in its class, coupled with the seat folding system you really do have plenty of room. That being said the small rear doors make the access to the back seats a very restricted. It also has to be mentioned that the vision out of the rear window is dreadful, and it is a commonly known fact from many test drive reviews that the parking in this model is all but easy.

Facts and figures: Honda Civic Hatchback 1.8 i-VTEC SE 5dr

MPG: 44

Co2’s: 152g/km

BHP: 138
0-60: 8.6 secs

Top speed: 127mph

The Civic is available for customers to purchase on a number of finance and lease hire methods and is certainly a great all rounder as a performance and a day-to-day car so if you are looking to get the most for your money Honda really do have a strong contender with the Civic.
