Honda Civic coupe reviews
Depending on the generation, each car has its advantages and disadvantages. The latest generation is the most successful due to the fact that the manufacturer took into account all the mistakes of past generations, thereby making the model closer to the ideal.
The main advantage and disadvantage at the same time is a rigid suspension. Thanks to her, the car keeps perfectly on the road. Even at high speed the driver does not feel any discomfort. A small fuel consumption cannot but rejoice - the car is considered quite economical. Cheap spare parts and consumables are also a plus of the car. A slight slope of the windshield can save the driver from stones and other objects. Even the twenty-year-old model is equipped with heated mirrors that can fold.
The disadvantages of the Honda Civic Coupe include poor sound insulation. Due to the dimensions of the body, the turning radius of the vehicle is too large. Due to the small ground clearance (clearance) landing and disembarking is not very comfortable. Also because of this, the car is considered an unsuccessful choice for operation on Russian roads. The trunk is not that small, rather narrow, but the manufacturer took care of this, so the latest generation model received a wider trunk. The suspension is a bit harsh, which is a significant drawback for Russian roads.
"Honda Civic" is a car with decent technicalcharacteristics, however, on the street they are no longer surprised. The boring design makes the car not the best choice in terms of appearance, which cannot be said about the latest generation. The Honda Civic turned out to be quite attractive due to the addition of new elements, as well as the modernization of older generations. Now the car stands out noticeably from the stream and is even able to compete with other cars in its class.
