Having started out in the 1970s as a simple economy car, the Honda Civic has evolved into a range of models designed to appeal to a variety of drivers. Sedan
variants make the Civic line one of the most diverse among compacts, underpinned by a sedan large enough to be technically considered a mid-size. In 2017, Honda reintroduced the Civic hatchback, which spawned the first-ever Type R
in North America.
