The new 2020 Honda Civic is considered to be one of the best compact cars, and should definitely be on top of your shopping list if you are looking, especially if you appreciate good styling and a dash of excitement on top of normal concerns like practicality, safety, economy and securing good value for your hard-earned money.

The new Civic has been a worldwide top seller, competing to be the No 1 selling car in the USA in the past few years. 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 well-loved Accord’s qualities in a (slightly) smaller package. It delivers a large, versatile and stylish 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.

It may be officially classified as a ‘Compact’ car, but the new 2020 Civic delivers so much beyond the definition of compact. 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 new 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.

EXTERIOR The 2020 Civic is sharp, smooth and sleek – long and low, and with its wide, confident stance it looks glued to the road; signature LED headlights, halogen fog lights, distinctive C-shaped taillights; the dynamic grille personifies its cutting edge athleticism, as does its honed, sculpted body from whatever angle you view it; its obvious Honda quality of build elevates it to a step above the more ‘ordinary’ brands
