Review

The Honda Civic is good to drive, has a big boot and comes with lots of standard kit. It still can’t match the Volkswagen Golf in terms of performance, handling or refinement, but the Civic offers a generously sized boot, good selection of technology and competitive servicing packages. It’s a shame the infotainment system is so poor, though.

Trim: Sport Line EX

Engine: 1.0 VTEC Turbo 126

The 124bhp 1.0-litre petrol engine is all you really need in a Civic: it delivers perfectly adequate acceleration from low revs and will complete the 0-60mph dash in a reasonable 10.7sec.
