Honda Civic is a line of subcompact and subsequently compact cars made and manufactured by Honda. The Civic, along with the Accord and Prelude, comprised Honda's vehicles sold in North America until the 1990s, when the model lineup was expanded. Having gone through several generational changes, the Civic has become larger and more upmarket, and it currently slots between the Fit and Accord.

It was introduced in July 1972 as a two-door model,[1] followed by a three-door hatchback that September. With the transverse engine mounting of its 1169? cc engine and front-wheel drive like the British Mini, the car provided good interior space despite overall small dimensions.[2][not in citation given] Early models of the Civic typically included a basic AM radio, heater, foam-cushioned plastic trim, two-speed wipers, and painted steel rims with a chromed wheel nut cap. As the years went by, it has become much more upscale with options such as air conditioning, power locks, power windows, leather upholstery, satellite-linked navigation, and a six-speed manual transmission. Initially gaining a reputation for being fuel-efficient, reliable, and environmentally friendly, later iterations have become known for performance and sportiness, especially the Civic Type-R, Civic GTi and Civic SiR.

Performance

The Honda Civic Type R is one of the fastest front wheel drive cars in the world, with its great suspension setup it has been said to handle like a rear wheel drive car.

"A racing car with plates that challenges the driver. Extremely fast. That's the Type R."

- Keiichi Tsuchiya - Talking about the Civic Type R

The Honda Civic is a relatively cheap and easy car to modify. Parts can be found and provided by almost every performance company. Despite its drivetrain (FF), it is light and nimble and very easy to make it fast. The Honda Civic carries a rather long and racing heritage, especially with companies such as Spoon and Mugen.

Another advantage of the Honda Civic is that it is very easy to swap engine parts with other engine parts from other Civics as many of the parts in the engine, even the drivetrain and suspension, can be interchangeable with one another.


Notes

  • The Honda Civic and Toyota Trueno are rival cars, each competing with one another.
  • Shingo proved that his EG6 could pass the AE86 very easily on the straightway despite the similarity between the two cars.
