Honda Civic insurance

Until 1972, Honda was known solely for its motorbikes. That dramatically changed with the production of the first Honda car, the Civic. This was also the time of a huge international oil crisis which saw the price of petrol more than double over a two year period.

The Honda Civic

The market was looking for a car that was cheap to run. The Civics timing was perfect. Here was a little car that could do 40mpg which, in those days, was a lot.

Ten years later, we were in the mid 80’s. The age of new romantics, big hair, mullets, neon and MTV. The Civic had moved with the times and launched an all new Civic, bigger than the earlier versions.

Thirty years later and the Honda Civic is still going strong. They now boast eleven different models to cater to all tastes, from the 1.3 litre engine, 52 mpg model S through to the 2.0 litre type R which, on a race track, could achieve 168mph.

Quite different cars then, and that in turn is likely to create big differences in what  insuring a Honda Civic is likely to cost you.

Insuring a Civic

Insuring any vehicle depends on a number of factors. Some of those depend on you personally. How old you are, what your driving record has been like, where you live, these things have a big bearing on the cost of your insurance.

Other factor which the insurer may take into account could be might be  how many miles you do a year and where you keep the car.

Last, but not least, is the car itself. The market value and what is known as the ‘insurance group’ are very important.
