The Honda Civic may not be as easy a choice as it once was due to improved competition, but slight improvements in fuel economy and performance, as well as additional equipment for 2014, help it keep its place amongst the best compact sedans. It's as good as or better than its competitors in most respects.
2013 Honda Civic EX Sedan (1.8L 4-cyl. 5-speed Automatic)
Driven On 3/26/2013
This rating has been carried forward from a prior year because the newer model has no substantial differences.
The refreshed Civic is particularly notable for its redesigned cabin. The use of soft-touch materials, sound-deadening and suspension mods to smooth the ride are class-leading. Add an extended list of standard equipment and suddenly, the Civic is back at the head of the class.
