HONDA CIVIC Price to be announced
Neat 1200 hatchback from Honda has choice of three or five doors, and four standards of trim/specification designated GL, AL, GM, and AT. Large lift-up rear door reveals generous luggage space but it is dramatically increased when rear seat is folded forward. The 1.2-litre transverse engine has a cog belt-driven overhead camshaft, and drives the front wheels through a four-speed gearbox, although both three and five-door models are available with automatic transmissions. Easy to park, the Civic is a quick A to B car, and is very light on fuel. Automatic models have two speeds only, but the torque-converter smooths power delivery.
