The Honda Civic is good to drive, proving to be one of the more comfortable cars in the class and also reasonably tidy through corners. And it has a decent boot and comes with lots of standard kit. However, its infotainment system is terrible, its resale values aren't that strong and it doesn't really excel in any area. A Seat Leon, for instance, is much more fun to drive, the Toyota Corolla is much more efficient and a Skoda Octavia is a lot more practical.get the best price

In range-topping GT guise, the Civic blends formidable performance with a degree of luxury. Additions to standard Type R trim include dual-zone climate control, sat nav, front and rear parking sensors and electrically retractable door mirrors. It's worth the extra if you can afford it.

This engine is exclusively for the hot Civic Type R. While 316bhp is not class-leading, and neither is the 0-62mph sprint of 5.7sec, don’t for a second think that the Civic Type R is a slouch. The standard limited-slip differential does a top job of putting the power down, even if being front-wheel drive means it’s a tad slower off the mark than four-wheel-drive rivals. The six-speed manual gearbox is blessed with one of the sweetest changes going. It's our pick of the hot-hatchback class.
