August: the Life Pickup was released. At the same time, the sedan lineup underwent a minor facelift (another new grille) and the lineup was reshuffled. The automatic option is now only available on one two-door and one four-door model.

HONDA CIVIC 1200 From £999
This neat little Japanese front-drive model is available in two guises-as a two-door saloon, or as a three-door estate with fold-down rear seat. Although it measures less than 12ft. overall, the Civic accommodates four adults and a fair amount of baggage in two-door form, or two people with an enormous amount of luggage as an estate. With the rear seat erect it is of course a four-seater saloon with reduced boot space. The overhead camshaft transverse engine drives the front wheels through a four-speed all-indirect gearbox. Front seats recline, and doors are wide.

London Show review

 

145

           
           

 

In 1973 the 1300 was succeeded by the technically interesting Honda 145, again offered as a sedan or a coupé. The 145's body was little changed from the 1300, but it was powered now by a water-cooled 1433 cc engine with fuel injection instead of carburetors,[8] the inspiration for the car's name. The market was not impressed by the 145: only 9,736 were produced as the model quickly found itself overshadowed by Honda's new Civic, and the 145 ended production in October 1974.
