What Camerons Car Reviews have to say about the 2013 Civic: Its very rare
for an automaker to do a complete redesign the previous model year and make
heavily revised changes to the following year, So why Did Honda do so?
Despite really good sales Most Reviews on the 2012 Civic were very bad
including one of mine and the material quality and intrusive road noise
were most to blame. However that has changed for 2013, all the updates they
needed to make are here and including more. The nice stitching on the
dashboard is a very nice touch. The technology is also not behind the times
like it used to be with a backup Camera being standard on all Civics when
the 2012 Civic didn't even offer a backup Camera. All in all great car from
Honda, the wait for the updates are worth it.
2013 Honda Civic EX Drive Review and Road Test
People assume that car companies know their competition's ever move as if
there was some sort of mission impossible crew sent in every weekend to
monitor R&D progress. While there are no doubt some less-than-ethical
information exchanges in the industry, on the whole, a car manufacturer
like Honda finds out what the competition's latest widget looks like around
the same time as we do. Need proof? Look at the 2011, 2012, 2013 Honda
Civic. The 9th generation Civic was intended to debut as a 2011 model, but
the financial implosion caused Honda to go back to the drawing board and
the re-design to land as a 2012 model due to the need to re-design the
redesign. In the perpetual game of auto-leapfrog, Honda miscalculated the
direction Ford, Hyundai, Kia and even Nissan were headed. The result was
bashed by Consumer Reports and raked across the coals by most of the press.
Did buyers care? Apparently not since the 2012 Civic was purchased in
impressive quantities by real-people. Honda could have found solace in
their sales, but instead they did something unusual: they re-re-redesigned
the Civic for 2013. Say what?
The 2013 Civic isn't just a second-year options package shake-up, and it
isn't even a mid-cycle color and trim shuffle. The changes after only a
year on the market land somewhere between a refresh and the ever-so-popular
redesign-on-the-same-platform. How can I call it a redesign? Well, if Lexus
can call the "new" LS a new car... But I digress.
While I didn't hear as many complaints from my comrades in the auto-biz
about the Civic's curb appeal, Honda took the opportunity to graft the
chrome smile from the 2013 Accord onto the Civic, redesign the bumper
covers (front and rear), add some smoked tail lamps, new wheels and
finished it off with a trendy honeycomb grille. While I didn't have a
single issue with the way the old Civic looked, I have to admit this one
looks better, especially from the front or back where Honda spent some cash
to have the tail lamps cross onto the trunk lid giving the Civic's heinie a
more premium feel. From the side it would appear that noting has changed
with the same four-window silhouette, but the difference is in the glass:
it's thicker this year for improved sound isolation.
The problem with the 2012 Civic wasn't the exterior. And, in my mind, it
wasn't the interior design OR the interior plastics quality. Yep, you heard
me right with that. The old Civic's plastics weren't great, but they were
easy to clean, textured attractively and I just didn't expect anything
different from an $18,000 car. What I did have a problem with was a lack of
color-matched bits and ill-fitting panels. Our 2012 tester's four main dash
components sported four different variations of the same target color. For
2013 Honda cranked the thumbscrews on the parts suppliers and all the
colors in our Civic EX were the same.
In addition to the color change, Honda had an eye on touch points, swapping
out the hard doors and dash "faces" for squichy-injection molded units with
fake stitching. Keeping costs d0wn, the same gauge cluster and dash
structure remain from last year as well as the dash parts farther from your
reach, but they have all been re-cast to texture-match the new bits. Even
the radio's plastics have received a color and texture upgrade to look
classier. The change has brought the Civic from slightly below average to a
solid contender running neck-and-neck with the new Focus and Elantra.
Honda continues to integrate a fairly exaggerated lumbar support contour in
the front seat backs, something I prefer, but since it isn't adjustable you
should spend some time in the Civic to be sure you can live with the shape.
As with most cars that have families in mind, the Civic's rear seats are
close to the floor and the door openings are wide and tall making
ingress/egress easy with or without a child seat in tow. Honda has a
reputation for function over form, and that pays dividends in the rear with
a high roofline that allows a more upright seating position and adequate
head room, more than can be said of the Elantra. Fold those 60/40 rear
seats down and you'll notice an area Honda didn't touch: cargo. The Civic's
trunk pass-through is still somewhat small and oddly shaped preventing
larger items from riding along. The trunk's 12.5 cubic feet is in line with
the Focus and Corols, but it's a few Cubes behind the Elantra and Sentra.
When it comes to bag carrying, the Sentra has a further trick up its trunk:
a 24-inch roller bag can ride vertically in the Sentra's cargo hold
allowing you to carry a surprising seven carry-on sized rollerbags, try
that in your Panther replacement.

Welcome to JustinsCarReviews! Today's vehicle is the 2013 Honda Civic
Touring. This vehicle is provided by us today by: Crown Honda 2610
Mcphillips Street Winnipeg Manitoba Canada. I really like the new updates
that Honda did to the Civic. Seats are really plush and comfortable, I
would recommend this car to anyone. You can highly equip this vehicle with
every option for under $25,000. I'm not sure if the U.S models offer the
same wheels or packages.
2013 Nissan Sentra vs Honda Civic vs Toyota Corolla 0-60 MPH Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Nissan Sentra has been redesigned and is
all new. It now looks more like its bigger brother the Nissan Altima. Which
means that it shares the new family resemblance. It also share a growth
spurt as the new 2013 Nissan Sentra is one of the biggest cars in the
compact car class...especially when it come to leg room. But how does the
Sentra compare to the other Japanese cars that it directly competes with?
In this classic mashup review we compare the 2013 Sentra to the
best-selling Honda Civic and the Toyota Corolla the TFLcar way....by seeing
which one is faster 0-60 MPH.

2013 Dodge Dart vs Civic vs Focus vs Cruze vs Elantra vs Corolla Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Dodge Dart is all new and available with
three different engine choices, five different models and hundreds of
different configurations. But how does it stack up in a very crowded market
segment that includes some of the most popular cars sold around the world?
We had the chance to compare the 2013 Dodge Dart (head to head) against the
best selling Honda Civic, the Ford Focus, the Chevy Cruze, the Hyundai
Elantra and the Toyota Corolla to see which of these cars offers the most
value, performance and features in this unique TFLcar mashup review.

Honda finally gives us the all new Civic they should have introduced last
year. Freshened styling, generous standard equipment, sporty driving
dynamics, and excellent fuel efficiency push the vehicle back to the top 3
in the compact segment. Although, still missing a few key upscale tech
features, the strong value is hard to ignore. If you are in the market for
a compact sedan with a reputation for reliability, put the Civic back to
the top of your list.
