When I set up time in test vehicles, I often try to coordinate the type of vehicle to the functions I have going on.
In the case of the 2016 year model of the Honda Civic, I was going to be stationary in the Washington, DC area after weeks of travel and knew this car would be great for all of the errands running and moving and shaking had I to do within the region.
I haven’t spent a lot of time in previous models of the Honda Civic, but I knew going in that the 2016 model was redesigned after its predecessor lost its appeal.
This sedan fits what I call “practical pushing,” as it’s affordable, offers essential functions and vehicle offerings, and enough additional elements to make you feel as though you’ve gotten more than you bargained for.
The Civic has a solid drive and a very refined drive. Even being a compact car, the vehicle has steady suspension and remains composed over potholes and challenging bumps in the road.
This 10th generation Civic is exceptional on gas, earning 31 miles per gallon in the city and 43 mpg on the highway. You’re getting your money’s worth out of this gas tank for sure!
My favorite feature on this car is something I haven’t experienced on others yet, the right turn camera. It’s a great safety precaution that helps avoids blind spots and is a welcomed addition to the rear view camera that’s also offered in this new Civic.
The car has a sleek, low body design build—if you have bad knees, it may not be ideal for you. But its new design is modern, minimal and ideal for a range of consumers looking for a vehicle that’s subtle and simplistic.
Spin Control: With price range from $19,475 to $27,335, the Honda Civic is an ideal buy for someone wanting a solid sedan that’s small is size, but big on savings.
