If you are looking to buy a compact car, the new Honda Civic should definitely be at or near the top of your list. The Civic offers different engines and even different body styles which of course expand its appeal to even more potential customers.

In fact since the new Civic has been available it has taken over the top spot in compact car sales in the US. It’s not surprising as the Civic is absolutely a great car. The LX Sport looks sleek and sporty, is fun to drive with its metal foot pedals and paddle shifters, and is light to steer and manoeuvre with its electronic power steering. The LX Sport is economical too while its 1.6 litre engine still gives plenty of power to enjoy driving; and, if you want even more excitement, there are other Civic models available with Turbo power, all available at Domasco showroom.

The Civic has a lot of the Accord’s qualities in a smaller package. It delivers a large, versatile cabin for both people and their things, with good rear legroom and clever storage solutions, including surprisingly large cargo capacity. In fact, even if you think you want a larger car, say in the Accord class, compare the Civic to the competitors and you may find yourself happier – and save yourself a lot of money – with the Honda’s better specifications, better comfort, better driving and better economy.

Compact only in terms of category, the 2018 Civic does a lot with a little. With almost 100 cubic feet of passenger volume and seating for five, this Civic saloon is inconspicuously spacious. It’s difficult to believe a ‘compact’ car gives so much legroom and so much space for your bags and shopping.

Young professionals, families and anyone who appreciates intelligent design will be drawn to the Civic. Fun to drive, super efficient and unique in style, the new Civic has a reputation for success, whether you’re talking about safety, reliability or technology.

The NHTSA of the US gave the 2018 Civic five out of five stars in frontal, side and rollover crash tests, with a final grade of a perfect five stars. Plus the top grade of Superior for front crash prevention.

Honda has made this car the intelligent but easy choice for those who want to have a degree of fun while at the same time feel safe with their family.
