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: S

Entry-level S trim isn't worth considering because you don't even get a radio or air conditioning. Besides, the price premium to upgrade to SE trim is tiny.

Engine: 1.6 i-DTEC

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.
