Honda Civic

(2017 - present)

The Honda Civic is a medium-sized family car, available as either a five-door hatchback or a saloon. The current model is the tenth generation of Civic and went on sale in the UK in early 2017.

The hatchback models are currently built in the UK at Honda’s Swindon plant, but this factory is due to close in 2020 and future vehicles will be imported from Japan. The saloon, which is not built in the UK, only makes up a small percentage of Civic sales.

The Honda Civic is available with either petrol or diesel engines, and there is also a high-performance version called the Civic Type R. We are building a separate page for this model, so check back soon.

The Civic has received consistently good reviews from the UK motoring media. it has received particular praise for its practicality and generous levels of standard equipment. It isn’t rated quite as highly as the leading vehicles in its class, but it is still considered a very good car.
