Honda recently announced a price rise across its range, with prices of the Civic up 2.3% on average from January; so there’s no better time to take advantage of the lower price while you can.
We’ve found a saving of £2830 off the list price of a 1.6 i-DTEC SE Plus-Nav model, which comes laden with goodies.

The 1.6-litre diesel is the pick of the range, rarely feeling underpowered, especially on the motorway.
The Civic’s interior feels solidly built where it matters most. Honda’s reliability is everything you could ask for, too.
The Civic is a safe car, with a five-star Euro NCAP rating thanks to its six airbags, anti-whiplash head restraints and pedestrian protection.
The dashboard of the Civic is messy, with too much going on in too little space. Some drivers may have trouble seeing the instruments behind the steering wheel too.
The engine is noisy, especially when cold. In addition, you'll feel vibrations through the pedals and gearlever.
The touchscreen isn't the easiest to use, with some menus having to be accessed via the small buttons that flank it.
Should I add any options?
The SE Plus-Nav spec is generously equipped, so the only thing we'd consider is metallic paint, at £525.
