    2012 Honda Civic Review Summaries

    What reviewers liked most about the Honda Civic

    • This Honda Civic Si is a slick piece of work for less than $20,000.

      - AutoSite.com
    • ...the new Civic sedan isolates its driver and occupants from the outside world in a way its predecessors did not.

      - Car and Driver
    • ...it's packed with safety features, everything from compatibility-minded body structures (helping to protect occupants in collisions with heavier, higher vehicles such as SUVs) to an energy-absorbing hood to help lessen impacts to pedestrians.

      - Los Angeles Times
    • Inside, Gen 8's twin-tier dash was kept, albeit significantly revised, to carry on the well-liked and well-established design theme.

      - Motor Trend
    • It has a sleek new aerodynamic body with a sweeping roofline, rakish windshield angle and low, wide stance. Interiors are blessed with more style and function.

      - MSN Autos
    • My test Civic was pretty much a fuel miser, delivering an estimated 30 mpg in the city and 40 on the highway with the automatic transmission -- or 30 and 38 with the manual gearbox.

      - MSN Autos
    • Quality materials, attractive design, and colorful instrument lighting give the Civic interiors a look that's a notch or two above compact norms.

      - New Car Test Drive

    What reviewers liked least about the Honda Civic

    • ...for larger adults, the Civic Si's rear quarters should be used only for short distances.

      - AutoSite.com
    • Still swoopy enough to look interesting - Honda calls it "one motion design" - but not enough to provoke envious glances.

      - Car and Driver
    • ...more power and more standard features than before...But there's also a higher pricetag...

      - Cars.com
    • Trunk capacity...in the coupe...actually shrunk a bit this year.

      - Edmunds.com

    Honda Civic Comparisons

    • ...creature comforts like power windows with driver's one-touch up and down, a one-touch open and close power sunroof, a 350-watt audio system with six speakers and an eight-inch subwoofer, an auxiliary input jack for an iPod or other portable music equipment, and red ambient lighting for the center console -- just like in a BMW.

      - AutoSite.com
    • The 2006 Civic is more than competitive, with a nicer interior than the Mazda3; more refinement than the Chevrolet Cobalt, Ford Focus and Toyota Corolla; and better fuel economy -- as a model line -- than all.

      - Cars.com

    Best one-liner about the Honda Civic

    • Whichever model you choose, it's pretty hard to go wrong with the Civic.

      - Edmunds.com
    • ...loaded like Tara Reid on Ibiza...

      - Los Angeles Times
    • Such a car was the stuff of science fiction 10 years ago.

      - Los Angeles Times
