The Honda Civic is good to drive, has a big boot and comes with lots of standard kit. It still can’t match the Volkswagen Golf in terms of performance, handling or refinement, but the Civic offers a generously sized boot, good selection of technology and competitive servicing packages. It’s a shame the infotainment system is so poor, though.

Trim: SE

Worth considering if you want to keep things relatively basic. Over and above entry-level S trim, SE gets you an AM/FM/DAB radio, air conditioning, alloy wheels and front and rear parking sensors.

Engine: 1.0 VTEC Turbo 126

The 124bhp 1.0-litre petrol engine is all you really need in a Civic: it delivers perfectly adequate acceleration from low revs and will complete the 0-60mph dash in a reasonable 10.7sec.
