Lookout Corolla and Mazda3: a cheaper yet better Honda Civic sedan is now on duty

3 Feb 2006

HONDA isn’t standing still in Australia’s hottest new car segment, the small car class. It’s just released the eighth-generation Civic – one of the world’s oldest and most respected nameplates. Sadly, right now we must do without a hatchback, but at least the not-so-small sedan ticks all the right boxes for style, comfort, space efficiency, refinement, choice and – most crucially – value. It did it with Accord and Odyssey, and now it’s Civic’s turn to show its rivals just how serious Honda is about doubling sales here by 2010.
Model release date: 1 February 2006 to 1 February 2012

Previous model

EP Civic GLi sedan

Released: October 2000
Ended: February 2006
Family Tree: Civic

Honda may have sold more of the cheaper, less sophisticated and oh-so-conservative Civic sedan, but that was only because it was cheaper than the funkier EU Civic Vi hatchback. Everything about the sedan felt dull – from its 88kW/150Nm 1.7-litre SOHC engine tied to a four-speed auto or five-speed manual gearbox to the very Plain Jane cabin layout. It seems the EP sedan is the last of the dull Civics, and not before time too.
