Product Overview

Honda Civic 8 Sedan (chassis code FA/FD/FG) is an affordable compact sedan in production from 2006 to 2011. It was available with a range of inline-4 engines that displaced 1.3 to 2.0 liters.
Compared to previous generations, the Civic 8 introduced a significant restyling, though it is hardly an improvement in this respect. The engines were still great, notably with a wider choice of VTEC applications. However, the automatic transmissions and CVTs were not. (Still, Honda makes the best manual transmissions in the industry.)
Unfortunately, Honda kept the downgraded suspensions from Civic 7 to this generation.
Another plus is the small 10.2m (33.5ft) turning circle.
