With unprecedented accolades coming from the automotive press and consumers alike, the reinvented Honda Civic lineup is on course for a record sales year — not an insignificant accomplishment in a rather good field of domestic and import car contenders. In effect, the 10th generation Honda Civic redefines the compact car segment. and, what buyers anticipates as to performance, standard features and comfort, in what was at one time the bare bones introduction to car ownership.
At this point I’ve driven the entire Honda lineup with the exception of the Civic Si variant and the legendary Civic Type-R — that will most likely happen for me sometime in early 2017. In the meantime, read my latest initial drive and ride experience behind the wheel of what I consider to be Honda’s most refined Civic to date.
Honda’s reinvented 10th generation Civic world car
With very few bumps encountered along the road to segment supremacy, American Honda Motor Company is on track to a record sales year for 2016. While Accord and the reinvented Civic continue to dominate the non-fleet midsize and compact sedan.
CR-V crossover and the surprisingly well selling subcompact HR-V 5-door hatchback drives Honda’s light truck segment sales, with Honda Pilot and the reinvented 2nd generation Ridgeline pickup exceeding projected sales targets for the big “H.”
Monday morning found yet another accolade placed in the 3rd row of this vehicle. Congratulations Honda!
