Today, Honda is known for producing a lot of classic vehicles including Honda CR-V, Honda City, Honda Pilot and many others. But one car leaves out all the others in the race. The Honda Civic is the jewel in its crown.
Let’s discuss a few things about the popular vehicles that very few people know.
Sixth Most Sold Car Ever
The agile car was released in 1886. The fact is quite surprising that it was released a century ago but what’s more amusing is that Honda Civic is the sixth best-selling car of all time. The other machines in the top five include Ford F-Series, Volkswagen Golf, Toyota Corolla, Volkswagen Beetle and VAZ 2101. The reason for its undying success is that it was not discontinued by the manufacturer since its inception.
The Quickest And Agile Front-Wheel-Drive Ever Made
Honda Civic is the fastest front-wheel car in the market. We are not talking about the basic trim levels. The Type R trim is the quickest and fastest front-wheel-drive car ever produced. First released in 1997 — the trim model took some time to be recognised but it soon became a popular vehicle all over the world.
Today, it is not just among the most sold cars but also the most loved front-wheel-drive machine.
They Made A Station Wagon Version
Yes, that’s right folks. Honda made a station wagon version of the popular Civic. The design and appearance were attractive and the machine received a lot of great feedback on its wooden panelling along with other stunning features. The car had a generous interior which proved to be a popular feature among the farmers.
It was Honda’s First Car Ever
Believe it or not, before Honda made its other engineering wonders like Honda Accord, Honda City, Honda Pilot or the Integra, it had Honda Civic. The first model was devised in 1972, taking it back to around 50 years. Right after it hit the market, it saw incredible overnight success.
The First Car Has Been Continuously Produced Since Day One
Honda’s first car has never been discontinued. Since its inception, the automobile manufacturer has consecutively come up with a new model that always had better features. No other car produced by Honda has been in the market for such a long period.
As you already know the car has been here for a while now, more than 5 decades to be precise. But did you know that it has seen more than 10 generations? The first-gen came in 1972 and lasted until 1979. The 10-generation has been in the market since 2015 to present.
There’s Great Fuel Economy on All Modern Models Except the Type R
The civic has been known for its fuel efficiency. Offering exceptional intracity drives, the car is engineered to be smooth and comfortable when driven on highways and roads. The 2020 Honda Civic model has 32 combined city/highway MPG with 29 city and 35 highway MPG and its tank can store up to 12.4 gallons of fuel.
The only exception is the Type R model which as discussed earlier is truly agile. The monster has 306 horsepower and can hit up to 272 km/h. The Civic Type R offers 22 mpg city, 28 mpg highway and 25 mpg combined.
The Civic Is One of The Best in Its Class
Civic belongs to the sedan segment, a category that has a lot of competition. Numerous cars come with similar features and with similar price tags. This leaves customers scratching their heads when it comes to buying a new car.
Don’t stay confused because Honda Civic Model is the clear winner in this category against renowned cars like Volkswagen Jetta, Chevrolet Cruze, Toyota Corolla, Hyundai Elantra, Nissan Sentra and Mazda3? The machine wins thanks to its amazing handling, quick acceleration, great fuel economy and spacious interior.
