Should you wait for to buy one?

The Honda Civic has been a consistently solid choice for motorists for the past 50 years – and we’re not expecting this new model to buck that trend.

Early impressions suggest that Honda’s latest family hatchback will offer a good blend of performance, practicality and economy. However, that fancy e:HEV hybrid system could put its starting price well above its main rivals.

We’ll wait until we’ve driven the new Civic before we give you our proper verdict. We’ll also need to compare the hatchback with its competitors to get a better picture of its capability – and we’ll update you once we have those tests organised.

In the meantime, read about the family hatchbacks the Honda Civic will square up against when it makes its European debut in Autumn 2022.
