Marhaba Review: A Closer Look at 2016 Honda Civic 1.5 T RS, EX, LX


The Honda Civic has been such a household name – indeed a familiar friend and a trusted brand – for such a long time people may start to take it for granted and not give it the attention they would to a ‘new star’. But, make no mistake, the new 2016 Honda Civic, the 10th generation of this remarkable model, is indeed a new star; and here is why…

Firstly, just look at it with its sleek yet aggressive good looks. Its bold styling strikes a confident pose. Now some details: you’ll notice the flared wheel arches, sharper creases, and dual character lines that cross at the rear haunches. Civic’s smooth yet muscular looks are said to appeal to all age groups, but especially the younger crowd and, interestingly, appeal to both men and women alike.

The new Civic is three inches longer and two inches wider. Rear seat passengers gain 2.2 inches of legroom, meaning a 6’3” passenger can fit comfortably behind an individual of similar stature. Honda has also created a new sense of space up front. Interior storage is superb, with a cavernous armrest cubby, removable cup holders, and a storage tray under the centre stack.
