Introduction

What Car? says...

What do a pair of leopard-print trousers and the Honda Civic Saloon have in common? No, it has nothing to do with Rod Stewart and everything to do with fashion. Like leopard print trousers, the mainstream saloon car fell out of favour with buyers long ago. While you could always buy a booted Ford Focus, Vauxhall Astra or, indeed, Civic throughout the 1990s and into the 2000s, they have all disappeared in the past decade or two.

However, with the rise of the premium small saloon (think Audi A3 and Mercedes CLA), it would appear that people are willing to ditch the hatchback in favour of this more traditional body style. Thankfully, Honda hasn’t just welded a big box onto the rump of its family hatch, though. Instead, the Civic’s swooping roofline has been lengthened to create a tail that’s arguably more elegant than the fussily-styled hatchback. Another happy result is an increase in boot capacity from 478 litres to 519.
