2000 Civic New Car Test Drive
Honda Civic is one of the most popular compacts sold in the U.S. Many of us grew up with them because the Civic has been a Honda trademark for more than 30 years.
Clever engineering, Honda's renowned assembly quality and all the conveniences create an entry-level car that provides more than basic transportation. Honda makes a Civic to suit many types of people. Sedan, coupe and hatchback models available with a choice of engines tuned for performance or economy enable buyers to choose a sports coupe, a luxury sedan or a highly efficient, practical and environmentally conscious runabout.
As mentioned, three body styles are available: three-door Hatchback, two-door coupe and four-door sedan. Trim levels include CX, DX, LX, EX, HX and Si.
The least expensive model is the CX hatchback. Even a basic radio costs extra here, though a split/folding rear seat, tinted glass and a rear-window defroster are included. Regardless of body style, the basic DX trim level includes dual outside mirrors, an AM/FM radio and adjustable steering column. All sedans and automatic transmission-equipped coupes and hatchbacks come with power steering. Mid-grade LX sedans add air conditioning, power windows and door locks and cruise control. EX sedans and coupes come with just about everything, including a more powerful engine, a power moonroof and antilock brakes. Automatic transmission adds $800-$1,000 to most models.
