HONDA CIVIC £1,680
There are several versions of the Civic, the 1200 with two or three doors and the four-door 1500 on a longer wheelbase. Engines are in light alloy with belt driven overhead camshafts mounted transversely and driving the front wheels. Comprehensive equipment includes reclining front seats, reversing lights; lockable fuel filler, tachometer and radio. An interesting option is the smooth-acting Hondamatic two-speed automatic transmission.

HONDA ACCORD £2,500 approx.
Latest model from Honda is this front-drive 3-door four-seater coupe with lines recalling those of the VW Scirocco. The 1,600 80 b.h.p. engine is an extrapolation of the Civic unit but with a longer stroke. Transmission can be manual with four or five speed or Hondamatic 2-speed automatic. Honda supply their engines with the CVCC stratified charge cylinder heads for markets where pollution limits are very tight.
