The Honda Civic is all-new for 2012 even though it looks an awful lot like last year's car. Is its performance and handling better, though? To find out, we brought the new Civic to the Edmunds.com test track. Acceleration was tested with 0-60 and quarter-mile tests, while braking was calculated using 60-0. Handling tests included a timed slalom and two trips around a skid pad to generate a lateral acceleration calculation.
