What used Honda Civic hatchback will I get for my budget?
Honda’s reputation for building reliable cars means the Civic stands up well as a used buy, which in turn keeps prices robust compared with some of its rivals. The Mk9 starts from about £4,500 for a high-mileage car, most of which are diesels. For something that’s covered a more favourable 10,000 miles per year, expect to pay closer to £6,500, and be aware that diesels command higher prices than petrol cars.
If you’re after an automatic, budget for at least £7,500, while Civic Tourer estates start from £12,000.
