Honda Civic Saloon Sedan

The Civic Saloon was introduced in 2018 and adopts a more restrained look than the Civic Hatchback. Gone are the aggressive bumpers and split rear window and in their place, you’ll find a tasteful bodykit and a regular rear window for better visibility – the Civic Saloon is perfect if you think the Hatchback looks a little over the top.
What both the Saloon and the Hatchback share, however, is interior design. That’s a good thing because the Civic interior looks sportier than what you’d find in an Octavia, for example. The low-slung seating position also helps with the sporty impression yet all-round visibility is good. Seat and steering wheel adjustment is straightforward, so a comfortable driving position can be achieved without much hassle. Available on mid-range SR models, the 7.0-inch touchscreen system does have Android Auto and Apple Carplay functionality.

You can carry their luggage easily, too – at 519 litres, the Civic Saloon has a slightly bigger boot than the Hatchback, which should be enough for a couple of large suitcases or four small ones. However, compared with the Civic Hatchback, the Saloon boot opening is smaller.

Trim levels mirror the Hatchback’, so affordable SE models get Honda’s suite of safety systems as standard. That includes automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control and traffic sign recognition.
SR models add 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, dual climate control and a rear parking camera. EX models come with leather upholstery, heated seats, LED headlights, wireless phone charging, keyless entry and push-button start.
