Used Honda Civic Information
Introduced in July, 1972 as a two-door subcompact car, the Honda Civic has become one of the most recognized Honda vehicles on the planet. It is such a well-known Honda in large part due to the fact that it was Honda's only offering in the United States for several years, until the lineup was expanded in the early 1990s with the introduction of the Honda Accord and Honda Prelude. Over the years, the Civic has grown in size and become more upscale to keep with the competition. This growth literally has moved it from the subcompact to the compact cars segment. This means, for older car shoppers, the older Honda Civics will progressively get smaller.
The last several generations of the Civic have been mostly cosmetic changes with new exteriors and upgraded interiors. Through this time, Honda has split the Civic into a sedan and a coupe offering, along with a hatchback version primarily designed for Europe.
Currently, the 9th Generation Civic revealed at the 2011 North American International Auto Show in Detroit features Honda's Eco Assist technology (software to help driver improve driving style to be more fuel-efficient), standard ABS, VSA and EBD technology. It also has a new multi-link rear suspension for a smoother ride.
The Honda Civic has won multiple car of the year awards and green car awards. It consistently ranks high in safety tests. Honda says it is the top-selling compact car in America with more than 9 million vehicles sold since 1973.
It has been offered, for the past several years, with 2 different four-cylinder options and a Hybrid powertrain, providing several options for used car buyers. Used Honda Civics for salve come in four different bases models (Civic DX, Civic LX, Civic EX, Civic EX-L), high-efficiency (HF) and high-performance (Si). The base offering (DX, LX and EX) are popular used cars. These vehicles are largely separated by the addition of interior features and more whiz-bang technology offered when moving up in trim levels.
The Honda Civic competes within the highly competitive compact car segment with its chief rivals being the Toyota Corolla and the Hyundai Elantra.
