Good: Good ride comfort. High quality feel. Huge loadspace and versatile rear seats. Excellent 1.6 i-DTEC diesel averages a claimed 78.5mpg. All engines chain cam.
Bad: Not as much a drivers car as previous Civic.
Good: New Civic is a bigger five-door hatch based on the Civic saloon. Independent rear suspension. UK gets 182PS 1.5iVTEC turbo.
Bad: Not in UK until 2017. Styling isn't proving universally popular.
Good: Practical and spacious estate version of 2012 Civic. Brilliant 1.6 i-DTEC diesel engine. Quirky styling. Clever load area. Decent ride quality.
Bad: Available with just two engine choices. Odd-ball interior will not be to everyone's taste. It's no bargain.
Good: Engaging, enjoyable and exciting. Seriously fast thanks to 310PS turbocharged engine. Superb grip and handling.
Bad: Tough and uncompromising nature may make it too extreme for some. Looks are bordering on the 'boy racer' side.
Good: Luxurious and more efficient than before. Softest riding and most stress-free SUV under £30,000. 1.6-litre i-DTEC is impressively refined and quiet.
Bad: Petrol engine not as good as the diesel. Five-speed petrol automatic irritating to drive.
Good: Highly practical and versatile thanks to 'magic' seats. Strong i-DTEC diesel. Diesel is good to drive.
Bad: Not available with four-wheel drive. Drivers expecting sportscar performance don't get on with the CVT-7
Good: Superbly practical and versatile. Plenty of room for four adults to travel in comfort. Much improved steering and handling. Impressive refinement makes it a surprisingly good motorway cruiser.
Bad: Only one engine choice which lacks low down response. Taller drivers may find legroom tight. Expensive to buy new.
Good: Attractive and futuristic looking supercar. Brilliant race track handling and performance. Easy to drive in town.
Bad: No storage space behind the seats. Boot is tiny. Interior doesn't feel particularly special for £137,000.
