2011 Honda Civic DX Sedan

2011 Honda Civic Review

(4 Stars)  Still strong at the finish

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

This small sedan from Honda offers a lot of brilliant options that are usually only found in larger, much more expensive vehicles. The Honda Civic has been one of the strongest all around vehicles in the Honda fleet for many years and continues to bring an amazing amount of value for its price. The base model Honda Civic starts at $15,800 and this is a very reasonable price for all that the Honda Civic offers. With its base 1.8 liter 140 horsepower engine and a 5 speed stick this car really offers a decent amount of acceleration and is a very fun car to drive.

This is one of the few cars that can be powered by natural gas and this clean version of the civic runs on the same engine as the other gas models. The 8th gen Civic won a Motor Trend Car Of The Year award for the amazing base model lineup. The higher trim levels offer many more great features, but these models carry a stiff completion with higher priced compact sedans from many other car manufacturers.
