I was going between the Civic and the 3 and of course I chose the 3 and 9 months later I am still so happy with my decision. The functional, flashy and fun to drive. I feel good walking up to it in a parking lot.
I love the dashboard and how it slopes down, it makes it easy to see and use while driving. I like how the screen is up toward the top so its still in my line of vision as I drive.
The seats a a little too firm for my taste, I haven't been too crazy about the look of the back end. I think the design could still be made to look sportyer. I was disappointed to know that in order to see information from radio stations or to see my miles per gallon I would have had to have gotten the navigation feature. There isnt a whole lot of leg room in the back seat
