The Honda Civic is good to drive, has a big boot and comes with lots of standard kit. Shame its infotainment system is so poorread the full model review
Worth considering if you want to keep things relatively basic. Over and above entry-level S trim, SE gets you an AM/FM/DAB radio, air conditioning, alloy wheels and front and rear parking sensors.
It’s not the most efficient engine in its class, according to official figures, but it’s not too far off and came out top in the family car sector in our True MPG real-world fuel economy tests. Refinement isn’t great, with a bit too much din when you put your foot down, and the power band is rather narrow.
