New Honda Civic review: finally able to rival the best in its class?
New Honda Civic 2017 review
Honda could have revolutionised the New Civic simply by fitting a fresh set of engines. However, by basing it on a New lightweight and highly rigid platform, the Japanese brand has created a family hatchback that is barely recognisable from its predecessor. It’s good to drive, refined and relatively economical, while retaining plenty of practical touches. It’s not as well built as a VW Golf, and a Vauxhall Astra is more rewarding from behind the wheel – but the 10th-generation Civic is now a credible rival to the best cars in its class.
