2013 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


I read once that driving a Honda Civic is like having a conversation with someone who knows exactly what you mean. I couldn't agree more. Motojournalists will tell you that the Toyota is a few 16th of an inch longer, the Mazda has a few more horsepower and the Nissan can run the quarter mile a fraction of a second quicker. What they don't understand is the work that goes into making the car do things it can't on paper. Like steer or accelerate as well as you need it to, when you really need it to, regardless of whether the numbers support it. Or pack the same amount of stuff in the trunk that used to fit into your SUV's, because you don't want to leave anything behind. Or cruise along in the snow, passing cars that have 4WD and twice the ground clearance, and are stuck, because you really need to get somewhere. So... In case you're wondering why it has no signal mirrors or those trendy LED dotted daytime running lights, it's because Honda's priority is to make this car your faithful, trusted companion, not a faux-fur and pleather fashion accessory where the compromises are evident throughout the driving experience. Motorcyclists and pickup truck drivers get really mad when a Honda Civic passes them, because it doesn't make sense (it doesn't even have a turbo), but, hey. Sometimes you need to have a little fun.
