Road Test

Standard equipment new to the Civic includes, Honda's Intelligent Multi-Information Display 5-inch dashboard screen which displays relevant driving details such as mpg, the idle stop status and climate and audio settings. Rear wiper, daytime running lights and a headlight-off timer that maintains illumination for 15 seconds after the car is locked. Every Civic comes with Idle Stop fuel-saving technology on manual transmissions and an ECON switch for the first time that tells the car's management system to adopt specific settings to improve fuel consumption. It does so without affecting overall safety levels or the general usability of the car. The entry-level SE trim also includes 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic air-conditioning and USB connectivity for compatible MP3 audio devices. For diesel fans, the Honda Civic SE is available with a refined, powerful 2.2-litre 150PS i-DTEC engine. All models come with a six-speed manual transmission as standard. The increase in equipment brings the Civic up to an excellent spec but there are still issues over the driving experience.
