Review Summary:

For a subcompact family car, the is certainly one of the better looking options. Although it may cost slightly more than its Japanese rivals, it is certainly worth considering.

Pros

* Interior design is one of the nicest in class.
* Standard features are an impressive list.

Cons

* Lack of engine choices doesn't work in the Civic's favour.

Looks

Despite the fact that the current Honda Civic is starting to get old, it is still one of the best-looking Japanese subcompact cars around, aided mainly by the front end detailing. The sharp, angular headlamps are separated by a traditionally-styled grille. The back and sides are well-finished, and it’s all jolly tidy, but it does, however, lack a “Wow!” factor.

Feels

The designers have kept you guessing, and those looking for a “Wow!” factor will get their fix when they open the door. The interior of the 2015 Honda Civic is actually, dare I say it, one of the best I have encountered in this class. The dashboard concaves around the driver, ensuring that all the dials, buttons, and radio are facing him/her. It is very well laid out and extremely bias to the driver.

Engineering

Like other Honda’s that are currently on the market, the Civic is fitted with an “Econ” mode, which is a lovely green switch that, once pressed, will adjust the fundamental systems, like the air-conditioning and the engine, to operate more economically.

What’s on offer?

There are four variations of the 2015 Honda Civic on offer, with the entry model starting out at AED 69,900. The top model, the VTI, will set you back AED 84,900, and with this you get a whole raft of standard features, including leather trim, folding rear-seats, speed sensitive volume control, rear-view camera, and Bluetooth capability. Powered by Honda’s tried and tested 1.8 litre I-VTEC straight-4 engine, you know it will be able to get you around without drama.

Summing it…

Honda has kept the Civic alive by developing it properly over the years, and you can be sure that this car will get you around comfortably. The thing is, you don’t see that many on the roads when compared to, say, the Toyota Corolla. And beyond the price I can’t understand why. Yes, the basic Civic is more expensive than the Corolla, but it is totally worth every Dirham. If you want a Japanese sub-compact car to be different, be a Civic driver.
