Honda Civic 1.6 VTI Review: Civics 101

The eigth-generation Honda Civic is good, and the numbers running on our road says it all. Ok, so you want one - but at the same time, have a budget to stick to. Ahh...here's where the entry-level 1.6-litre variant comes in. Or is it?

What we like:

pros
spacious and solid interior
pros
willing engine
pros
sporty handling and reliability of the Honda brand.
What we dislike:
cons
A tad overpriced
cons
leather not a standard option
cons
missing factory-fitted audio head-unit and standard-fitted tyre that doesn't seem to compliment the car's handling capability.

After many generations, the Civic has matured into a refined family sedan. In its current guise, the Civic is far removed from its original form as a cheap, frugal and reliable car - it's a better and more upmarket car.

Thus, it's not hard to see why there's plenty of Civics plying our roads.

Wait.

Here's the biggest downside - the upmarket positioning is also reflected in its price. With a list price of $85,700 (the promotional price starts at $76,100), that is a serious amount of money to be parting with for a 1.6-liter car. Factor in the missing equipment (such as factory-fitted audio, leather seats, HID headlights), and this really puts things into perspective.

If you've got your heart set on (and have the moolah to pay) a Civic, then we suggest you take a look at the higher spec 1.8 and 2.0-liter models. Otherwise, the lower equipment level on this 1.6 could leave you feeling short-changed...

The quote for my car was fast, responsive and the highest. The transaction was fast and explanation was clear. The person who inspected my car was friendly and professional. It was a good experience with OneShift.

The transaction was very smooth from the minute I get on to their website trying to sell my car till the car ownership transferred and have the money paid by Pay Now into my account. It only takes less than 3 days. The person attending to me are very professional, Jon at the phone in their office and Sean Tan who came down to view and test the car. I am very happy to have decided to sell my car through "One Shift By Carousell"
