Honda debuted its first generation Civic circa the summer of 1972, marking the beginning of small-bodied cars that perform big. Not only was it a fuel-efficient and dependable model but also fast-moving, particularly for its size. Now in its tenth generation as of 2016, the Civic is chock-full of cutting-edge amenities. That’s a huge step up from the optional AC and modest reclining seats it offered at its inception. Its stiff and demarcated design breaks boundaries and sets standards.
