2012 Honda CivicRobert K - Edgewater, MD07/16/2015
This is a fantastic commuter car. I drive 130 miles a day round trip, five days a week for work. I have gotten up to 42.5 miles per gallon on the highway and my average is 37.5 miles per gallon for an entire take of gas. I do a lot of high traffic driving in the Washington DC area, so this kind of mileage is great! The car handles great and is pretty comfortable for its size and class. Bang for the buck, you really can't go wrong. Yes, there are cars on the market that get better mileage, but Honda's long term reliability is hard to beat.
If you want an affordable coupe, definitely consider this one! While it's simple in a classic sort of way, it's still stylish. Other aesthetic additions like rims, etc. make it pop even more. The ride is also pretty smooth and the interior is nicely designed.
This car has gotten over 43 miles to the gallon in some instances. It has just enough power to do what you need. The car is fairly technologically advanced. The speedometer is digital and has a display that indicates what song is playing. Additionally the car is fitted with Bluetooth, a USB plug in and has a CD player. Fairly reliable. Have had no issues with the vehicle so far.
However there are downfalls. I am 6 foot 3 inches. I could not fit in the Honda Civic EX model because of the sunroof. I am still a bit cramped in the LX model but it's nothing you can't get used to. Additionally after about four hours of continuous driving the seats become almost unbearable to sit in.
Despite their smaller size, these compact cars pack lots of power and plenty of enjoyable features for drivers and passengers alike. Check out this list of our best ranked small and compact cars, based on CarMax sales data from January 1, 2018 through April 30, 2018.
