What Car? says...
Sometimes we like lots of choice when buying a car, with all sorts of engine, colour and gadget options. But with family cars it can pay to keep things simple – and the Honda Civic does that very well indeed.
The latest Civic – the 11th-generation model – has just one engine (unless you go for the Type R hot hatch), one bodystyle (a five-door hatchback) and just three trim levels. That might sound rather restrictive, but what you do get covers all the bases very well.
So, should you buy a Honda Civic? Well, that's what we'll help you decide in this review. We'll cover all the important areas, from performance to boot size, and tell you how it compares with rivals. We'll also tell you which trim level we think makes most sense.
There’s only one engine option: a 2.0-litre petrol with hybrid assistance. You can choose from three trim levels, and we reckon mid-rung Sport makes the most sense.
