The Honda Civic is a line of subcompact and subsequently compact cars manufactured by Honda. The Civic, along with the Accord and Prelude, comprised Honda’s vehicles sold in North America until the 1990s, when the model lineup was expanded. Having gone through several generational changes, the Civic has become larger and more upmarket, and it currently slots between the Fit and Accord.
It was introduced in July 1972 as a two-door model, followed by a three-door hatchback that September. The seventh generation was released in September 2000. While the redesign retained the previous generation’s exterior dimensions, interior space was improved in part by using a flat rear floor thus bumping up Civic from a subcompact to a compact car size segment.
As of 2006, a total of 16.5 million Civics had been sold worldwide, with 7.3 million of them in the United States. By 2012, Civic has been the top-selling car in Canada for 14 years. With high gas prices and a weak economy in June 2008, the Civic supplanted the Ford F-Series to become the top-selling vehicle in the United States for that month.
Civics have been used for racing ever since their introduction. In 1973, a Civic was entered, alongside cars of much larger engine sizes, in the Australian Bathurst 1000 endurance race.
The Civic was the Motor Trend Import Car of the Year for 1980 as well as its 2006 Car of the Year. The Civic also won the North American Car of the Year and the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) Car of the Year awards for 2006. In November 2006, the Civic received the prestigious “Car of The Year” award from Brazilian magazine Auto Esporte.
