What's the used Honda Civic hatchback like?

Super-clever engineering means there's almost enough room in the five-door Civic to play swingball. There's huge head- and legroom, and getting in and out is a doddle, too. Fold the seats away and you're left with a cavern of a boot.

Three-door models aren't quite as enormous, but there's still enough space for four adults to emerge smiling at the end of a long journey.

Plenty of thought has been put into the cabin layout as well, so it's an easy car to live with. The dash-mounted gear lever and other controls are within easy reach, while the seats come with enough adjustment for anyone to get comfortable at the wheel.

The hot Type-R is an absolute hoot to drive, but even run-of-the-mill models are enjoyable. Road noise is the biggest problem for the entire bunch.
