What is the Honda Civic?
The first Honda Civic was introduced back in 1972. The market was looking for a car that was cheap to run. And boasting 40mpg, the Civic soon became a popular choice.
In 1992 Honda opened its UK plant at Swindon, which today is the home of the Civic 5-door hatchback.
There are five sleekly styled sporty hatchback models to choose from, including the aerodynamic Civic Type R that offers an impressive 0-62mph in 5.7 seconds and a maximum speed of 169mph.
