Comfortable, smartly designed and available in a wide array of configurations, the 2008 Honda Civic sets the bar for the small car segment.
For the average small car shopper, the Civic remains the quintessential choice.
There are plenty of reasons to choose the Civic. First among them is the car's wide array of configurations. The Civic is one of the few small car offerings to be sold as a sedan and a sportier-looking coupe. A fixed, minimal-options trim level architecture, ranging from the budget-oriented DX to the top-level EX, makes picking a Civic a relatively straightforward affair.
Powering this unit is a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 140 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque. That power is sent through the front wheels via a five-speed transmission.
All Civics come with front seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags and active front head restraints. Antilock brakes are also standard.
The 2008 Honda Civic's suspension, steering and brakes all work together seamlessly, and even the mainstream models can be described as being somewhat sporty to drive.
Summary: Engine lineup that offers both fuel-efficiency and performance, roomy and refined interior, high crash test scores.
