We’ve come a long way from that first Honda Civic… This is the 2016 Civic, and it’s the 10th generation of Honda’s plucky compact. For the first time, the American Honda team has led the development of the car, and they’ve given us a Civic that’s incredibly well rounded. It should be, considering that Honda looked towards German premium and luxury vehicles for inspiration.
This is our first taste of the new Honda Civic. We’re eager to get our grubby mitts on the upcoming Civic Si and definitely on the Civic Type R. For now though, we’ll settle for an initial sampling of the all-new machine by starting with the Civic Sedan Turbo, and it’s new 1.5-liter forced-induction mill.
[Disclaimer: Honda flew my but from Boston (where I was visiting family) to NY to sample its latest Civic. They put food in my belly, and gave me a place to sleep as well.]
