We wanted an easy to park, easy to
drive, easy to maintain, clean,
efficient car. The Civic delivered with
flying colors. It handles really well on
curvy roads, too.
Gas mileage. Reliability. Rear seat
room (seriously!). Handling on curvy
roads (my 2 year old always says
"faster, faster!"). My 4'10" wife and I
(5'8" 210lbs) can both find
comfortable seating positions.
Better noise insulation. Better stereo
(MP3, better speakers).
Wagon version besides the CR-V.
Rating to tow a tiny trailer (towing a
trailer, no matter how small, can void
your warranty). Roof and/or trunk lid
rack. The ability to lock the door as
you leave the car.
