I am test driving this bad boy next Saturday.

Sat in it today, had a good look over it, very nice car, very futuristic and very well built. More than a match for Astra, Focus and Golf IMO. Shame they aint releasing the coupe over here as the back end of this hatchj version is very odd, and might take a bit of getting used to.





Fingers crossed Honda decide to release the coupe.

The coupe is gorgeous, so hope they release it over here. There's bits i like and don't like about the hatch, I wouldn't have one as the overall shape reminds me of a fiat brava, but I'm sure it could be made to look really sweet.

That version had all gadgets inside, including a engine start button, sat nav, cruise control, and arse wiping machine, it really was the best interior i have ever seen in a car. Honda have finially taken the time and really looked at the interior of their cars.

The whole roof was glass, but i wouldn't of realised if he didnt say, it is very practicle, the boot is huge.

It comes in a sport version, which although it has a couple of less gadgets, it does come with 17 or 18 inch wheels. The guy said it has similar handling to the old type r, although they aint releasing a new type r till some time 2007.

Prices start at 12k and go up to 18k, the version i am test driving is a 1.8i VTEC 140 BHP, the performance of a 2.0l with the economy of a 1.2.

Honda Civic 2006 model.

Revamped to be in the same category as the Golf, Focus, Astra, Skoda etc.

Went to see the new Astra SRI and 2.0l turbo, lovely looking cars and very fast, but didnt seem as practical, well built or potentially as nice as the civic.

Reviews have been quite good for the civic so far, with many mags quoting "its back to the drawing board for the Astra and Focus" but could its design be it's downfall?

My god that's ugly!! It's definately futuristic looking though. In a 1960's kind of way.

Here is the review for the new civic.

Much better car, imo than the new focus, more room in the rear, more luggage room and unmatchable reliability. Looks as though, despite its looks, it could be a very popular car.

It had alot more torque than my car, seemed to be more torquey than my mates Astra SXI, but didnt really get chance to really "test" it as there was a Honda employee in the car with me frown
