Anyone that gives this car a one or two star rating is obviously looking at spesifics and cant see the overall picture. This 2.2 engin is the real star of the show but one must admit there are some things like visibility and door handles and road handling that brings it down. The concept and thinking behind this vehicle overshadows all the negatives. A real pity many people will never see the bigger picture (read more)

Good performance engine and good reliability, However suffers for practicality. The major issue is the very poor visibility, you have very poor visibility out the back (no rear windscreen wiper doesn't help) and the side mirrors have very sizeable blind spots. Thankfully I don't have to shared my route with a lot of cyclists, although I have had a number of worrying close near misses with other vehicles. Minor additional irritation is that the driver seat does not lower, so if you are... (read more)

Sporty; I have the heated leather seat option which are nice in winter but not very comfortable after 30 min of driving. THe dashboard lights reflect in the windscreen at night. The only option is do dim them to the point they are turned off. Any idea of where the perimeter of the car is is pure guesswork. Makes parking and reversing a joy - NOT! I get 500 miles out of a tank (50lt) on a run and 350 around town. For some reason this car stays clean, must be something to do with the... (read more)

Good looking inside and out. Pleasant place to be and comfortable/fun to drive. Handling is good but not as good as a Golf. The engine makes up for any shortcomings - very powerful, smooth and responsive. Storage space inside is also great and the boot is a good size. 6ft 2 adults have no problem in the back seat.

The visibility is terrible throughout the car but especially when reversing (the spoiler blocks the view!) 2 The seats are hard and have very little movement on the part that supports your back. 3 The dashboard illumination reflects in the windscreen when driving at night. 4 No rear wiper and the lower part of the window is not heated. 5 The ride is hard and bumpy. The car is design over function and is dreadful to live with. Even the build quality is not the good. (read more)

I really like the Honda Civic 2.2 i-CDTi driving position and the instruments. The engine is very flexible with all the power you need. The civic is like a dream, great performance, the ride and the extras. I also like the great engineering, its so well made. Having been an engineer I take my hat off to Honda, Well done (read more)

To date, a smashing buy.
The Civic is a real driver's car with a wonderful engine and lovely to drive. Very quick because of the high BHP, especially between 35-60 mph.
It seemed to me to have more style/panache/verve than my other shortlisted cars (Focus and Golf) and I wanted something a bit different to stand out from the crowd.
It hasn't disappointed, yet.
Thoroughly recommended. Test drive one and you won't be disappointed. (read more)

I have to admit that despite the bad points of Honda Civic 2.2 i-CDTi SE, I do really enjoy driving it and generally using it day to day. It is very fast for a turbo diesel but it's also got a CO2 emission rating lower than the lowest government rating so as a company car it's very economical. I bought the SPORT version, because at the time I bought it (early March 2006) you had to get that option in order to get the 18" storm alloys, but I understand that you can get all sorts of different...
