Honda Civic Model

The Civic was first introduced by Honda in 1972 as a two-door subcompact. Since its arrival, it has gone through numerous generational changes  and has become larger and more sophisticated and has earned a solid position in the compact class of vehicles. Today, it is considered a mid-size vehicle that is still viewed as a member of the compact class.

Despite the Civic’s diminutive external dimensions, it provides remarkably good interior space. Its initial popularity with consumers was due to its fuel efficiency, reliability and environmental friendliness. As the model evolved, it became better known for its performance and sportiness with the introduction of the Civic Type R, GTi and VTi.
