The Honda Civic has been a regular sight on UK roads for almost 40 years now, however most motorists in the market for a Civic these days will focus on the seventh and eight generations.
The Civic is a stylish hatchback that comes with a mix of notable modern and retro design features internally, yet has an excellent build quality on the outside.
The more recent iterations of the Civic also come with some impressive features that include chilled glove boxes and panoramic sunroofs.
Those on a budget or looking for a more economical option should consider the ICTDi diesel engine, whereas those looking for more drivability should try out the Type-R which delivers 210 bhp and goes from 0-60 in just 6.5 seconds.
Honda Civic Insurance Group
Car insurance providers use a rating system that helps determine the annual cost of insurance on cars available in the UK. All cars are given an insurance group number between 1 and 50, with lower insurance groups attracting lower premiums, and higher insurance groups costing more.
Honda Civic models fall between insurance groups 5 and 20, making it a mid-to-low range car to insure (in relative terms). This also makes for quite a bit of variance in the cost of insurance between the different Civic models on offer.
