Price as Tested

Leather, navigation, good stereo with wheel-mount controls, standard safety features, loaded with options at a bargain price. Attractive styling works better as sedan than coupe. Gracious cabin and trunk space, easy-to-use nav system; solid engine with fair power.


Auto transmission lags when gas is stomped. Looong dash seems like wasted space. No way to get sporty SI bits in the sedan.


Umpteen generations since its debut, the Civic is now as big as the early Accords, but better looking. A relative bargain, but an automatic Civic sedan is like a bowl of gruel: It gives me what I need to get by, but lacks any real punch on my taste buds. Still, all the nutrients are there, in spades, so I’ll keep eating.
