Which used Honda Civic hatchback should I buy?

The entry-level 1.4-litre petrol is a little gutless for hauling the Civic around, so we'd plump for the 1.6-litre every time. Although Honda has since developed an excellent diesel of its own, the Isuzu-sourced 1.7-litre unit used in this car isn't really any great shakes.

Every model has electric front windows and a CD player, but spending a little more on an SE is recommended. You'll get air-conditioning, alloy wheels, remote central locking and rear electric windows, which we think are well worth the cash.
