Honda Civic 2.2 CDTi ES Car Review and Test Drive

The new Honda Civic 2.2 Diesel is an exciting addition to the Honda Civic range, with its sporty styling and generous specification level.

Honda Civic Test Drive and Review

Immediately striking is the new design and bold aerodynamic lines hinting at the smooth ride to come.

There is no doubt that this is a great car to drive, with excellent handling and a ‘sensible’ gearbox ratio (you can shift up into sixth at around 35mph/1000rps!)  The aerodynamics ensure a smooth and quiet drive on the motorway and despite the suspension being very firm this won’t prove to be an issue on all but the most uneven roads.  Road handling is not an issue with very little roll through the corners.

As you would expect, the driving position is fully adjustable as is the steering column, providing a dizzying range of options at the wheel.  What is likely to draw your attention however is the central information display and trip computer which is projected using holographic technology.  Cruise control, dual zone climate control, rain sensitive wipers, automatically controlled lights with dusk sensor and power folding door mirrors are just a few of the toys that Honda have generously thrown in.

With a range seating configurations in the back this is the ideal small family car.  Admittedly three adults are going to feel a bit

Honda Civic Boot for Car Review and Test Drive

‘snug’ but lets move on swiftly to the generous boot space which at 485 litres far surpasses the Ford Focus which stands at 385 litres.

The Honda Civic scores well on safety, achieving a 4 star Euro NCAP rating, with 6 driver and passenger airbags in the front and 2 side airbags and curtain airbags front and rear.
