Honda Civic (2001–2005)

Last updated 30 March 2016


Sit inside the new Civic and the first thing that strikes you is its spaciousness. Then you notice that the gearshift lever sprouts from the dash and that there's no 'console' or central tunnel. As a result you can easily slide across to get out of the passenger door. A boon when parked against the kerb on a busy road.

Or you can nip easily between the front seats to attend to children strapped into the back by the three three-point seatbelts. Terrific for young mums. And the front seats will slide forward far enough to recline the seatbacks to horizontal, so that, with the rear seats, they form a bed. There are also loads of places to store oddments, including bottles, but thankfully no hideous pop-out cupholders. Driver's seat and steering wheel are both height-adjustable.

The car comes with driver, passenger and side airbags and is constructed in such a way that Honda is confident of achieving a four star rating in NCAP crash tests, which is another comforting thought.
