Honda Civic (2001 – 2005) Review
Honda Civic (2001 – 2005) At A Glance
This 2001 Honda Civic may be a world away from its quirky and adventurous replacement, but it does share some similarities. It's just as well built, reliable and well engineered, making the Honda Civic an ideal used car buy that will give you trouble free ownership for many years.
Okay, so it's not the most bold of designs, but it's neat nontheless and three-door Sport models look very much-like the renowned Type-R hot hatch, but without the high running costs. All the engines in the line-up offer reasonable economy too, from the 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre VTEC petrols to the 1.7 CTDi diesel.
But perhaps the best area of the Honda Civic is the clever and well-thought out interior. It feels more like a people carrier with plenty of space and some useful family-friendly features. There's plenty of attention to detail too such as the high-placed gear ever right next to the steering wheel which frees up space. There's also plenty of storage and a big boot.
It's unlikely to get your pulse racing, but the Civic is definitely a car you buy with your head. Cheap to run, durable and reliable, it has plenty to recommend it.
