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

Sport is the cheapest trim available on the more powerful 1.5 petrol engine. It adds heated seats, a sporty bodykit, twin centre exhausts and LED headlights.

Engine: 1.5 VTEC Turbo

The 1.5-litre engine is, unsurprisingly, faster than the 1.0 and has more low-down pulling power – although it doesn’t actually feel drastically quicker on the road. Given that it’s also quite a bit less efficient, we wouldn’t bother spending the extra.
