What used Honda Civic hatchback will I get for my budget?
At the bottom end of the market for Civics of this generation, high-mileage and repaired write-offs are firmly in bargain basement territory at comfortably under £1000. Ideally though you’ll want to at least double that figure for a car with less than 100,000 miles on the clock and a decent level of specification. Prices for the Hybrid start at £3000, or for the same amount you can pick up a 2006 petrol or diesel example with less than 70,000 miles showing, while Type Rs start from about £4000.
Unsurprisingly, it’s the Type R that also occupies the top end of the Civic market, with low-mileage examples of the limited-edition Mugen model still being advertised for as much as £16,000.
