2021 Honda Civic Review

What is the Civic?

The Honda Civic is the best-selling car in the U.S. Sold in sedan, coupe and hatchback body styles, this compact car has a list of strengths unrivaled in its class. Like other compacts, the Civic is quite affordable, but it also offers a significant amount of value. The quality of materials is excellent for the class, with a minimal use of hard, dreary plastics. Cabin room is exceptional — four 6-foot-tall occupants will have no problem fitting in the Civic sedan or hatchback. Their luggage will fit, too, since the Civic offers one of the largest cargo areas in the class. The optional turbocharged engine delivers both excellent fuel economy and some of the quickest acceleration times we've clocked for non-performance compacts. The Civic is close to perfection, with a slow, unintuitive infotainment system as its single flaw.

There are several worthy alternatives if you're looking for something a little different. The Kia Forte is a comfortable small sedan with an appealing mix of features and a more competitive price. The Mazda 3 is smaller and costs more, but its materials and build quality are similar to what you'll find in a luxury car. If backseat passengers aren't a consideration, the Hyundai Veloster three-door hatchback is more fun to drive than most rivals.

Edmunds says

The Honda Civic should be the default choice for shoppers looking at a compact car. Its enviable performance, spacious interior and comfortable ride are all hallmarks.
