The Civic comes in three variants, starting from the standard 1.8S variant with equipped 1.8L naturally aspirated SOHC i-VTEC engine and the 1.5TC with equipped 1.5L DOHC VTEC Turbo engine.

The Honda Civic has excellent interior space with all round spacious feeling. According to Kelley Blue Book, the Civic offers 37.4 inches of grandeur leg room, perfect fit for 3 average size adults in the rear. The fastback design Civic is looking sleek and sophisticated, however I was totally amazed by the Civic boot volume is 519 litres, fitting 2 large luggage is not a problem at all. There is also significant improvement of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) levels in the Civic, with minimal droning noise and wind noise.
3. Top in class safety features
The Civic is now equipped with six airbags (dual front, side and curtain) as standard across all variants. Not forgetting Vehicle Stability Control (VSA) to prevent losing control around tight corners. Hill Start Assist (HSA) prevent Civic from rolling backwards when release brake on a steep hill.
