Senior editor Ed Loh: "I was surprised by some rather nasty handling traits," that the Civic exhibited. "The entire rear kết thúc would cant left & right under hard cornering," notes Loh, "& when I adjusted mid-turn, it seemed to lớn bring the rear around a bit; then correcting again sent if off course."


Other editors were let down by the handling, too -- "When cornering, a little steering input đầu vào went a long way -- that took some getting used to," notes associate editor Allyson Harwood -- but not one editor could dismiss the fact that our 2006 Motor Trkết thúc Car of the Year was still meeting its mission objectives, và quite beautifully. "This car seems to have a màn chơi of refinement aước ao the others - it"s a step up," claims senior photographer Brian Vance. Harwood finds the Civic"s storage solutions impressive, while editor-at-large Arthur St. Antoine notes of the Honda"s mileage, "You can believe sầu the Civic"s mpg advantage would draw me to it."

Certainly, the Hondomain authority, powered by a 1.8-liter four, promised superior fuel economy -- 25 city/36 hwy -- và, naturally, delivered, posting a 25 mpg observed. But EPA friendliness aside, the Civic"s meager 140 horsepower hampered it. Despite its relatively svelte 2786-pound curb weight, the Civic nevertheless has a paltry weight-to-power ratio, consumed 0-to-60 in 9.4 seconds and the quarter mile in 17.1 at 81.4 mph (the 2007 LX we tested was two ticks slower for each). With numbers like that, the Hondomain authority failed to lớn impress us as energetic. "How would it perkhung with four adults and luggage aboard?" wonders St. Antoine. Further, the Civic lacks a true manual mode -- just Drive sầu, D3, 2, & 1 -- making it impossible to lớn lock in fourth gear và difficult lớn easily exploit the power.


It might not move sầu a full load with vigor, but it would at least astound those aboard with its ultramodern design, attention lớn detail, and surprising vastness. With its two-tier instrument display, highlighted by a top-shelf digital speedometer, clearly presented center staông chồng, ample storage, supportive seats, and standard moonroof, the Civic presents a welcoming, airy cabin that"s best suited lớn stand the thử nghiệm of time.
