The new Civic is fractionally longer and wider than the old car, with a slightly lower roofline and shorter overhangs but there are very clear links to the 10th-generation car.After the wild styling of the eighth and ninth generations, the 10th and 11th have settled into a more conservative look that’s in keeping with most of its rivals.Winners will feature across Wallpaper* platforms.The most obvious difference comes inside, where the extended wheelbase has been entirely committed to improving rear legroom.Below is a collection a photos from Northampton Pride 2022 – are you featured? 1.That’s great news for passengers and the Civic’s rear passenger compartment feels far more spacious than most C-segment hatchbacks.Send us the stuff that beautifies and improves the spaces that surround us.Front seat occupants get similar levels of space and comfort, with plenty of leg and shoulder room and a general feeling of openness brought by the cabin’s relatively simple design.Winners of the 2021 Wallpaper* Smart Space Awards.

Honda makes a big deal of “man-maximum, machine-minimum” engineering.In practical terms, that means keeping things simple for the driver, so the dashboard and controls have a welcome ease-of-use.There’s no massive clutter of buttons but nor does the Civic rely just on its nine-inch touchscreen for everything.It’s closer to the exemplary Mazda3 in that regard, with obvious, tactile controls for major functions, rather than the VW Group’s disastrous reliance on touchscreens.It might not quite match the Mazda’s premium feel but the materials are easily the equal of something like a Focus or Golf and touches like the honeycomb dashboard grille bring an unusual and interesting detail.

The only interior misstep is the drive selector carried over from the CR-V , which looks like it was sourced from Fisher-Price.In the press material for the new Civic Honda chucks around words such as “exhilarating” to describe the driving experience, which feels like a stretch.Competent is probably more accurate.Like the previous model, it certainly handles pretty well but it’s not sharp in the way a Ford Focus or Mazda3 is.The steering is accurate but doesn’t feel as immediate or as communicative as the best rivals.

Instead, there’s a definite lean towards comfort with really good damping, a smooth ride and decent body control.But, like its predecessor, there’s a hint in the regular car that something far sharper and more engaging is waiting to be unlocked in the new Type R.The same can’t be said for the engine.The Type R will get a straight petrol unit while the regular Civic gets a hybrid that completes Honda’s shift to an all-electrified mainstream line-up.That setup doesn’t lend itself to a hot hatch but does put it head-to-head with the impressive Toyota Corolla - the only other full hybrid C-segment hatchback.

While the old car had a choice of economical 1.0-litre or sporty 1.5-litre petrols plus a frugal 1.6-litre diesel, the new model has only one engine and transmission choice.Honda says the new 2.

0-litre e:HEV full hybrid offers the economy of the 1.0, the power of the 1.5 and the torque of the diesel.So, the four-cylinder engine and two electric motors produce a combined 181bhp and 232lb ft, offering 0-62mph in 7.8 seconds.

Economy is quoted at between 56 and 60mpg (depending on trim level) and emissions are as low as 108g/km.The engine and transmission - an E:CVT that Honda’s top tech man insisted “isn’t a gearbox” - are related to the setup in the CR-V and HR-V but have been redeveloped to offer better power, torque and responsiveness.Read More.
