If you’re on the prowl for a fuel efficient, powerful, and reliable small car, look no further than a used 2010 Honda Civic. This stylish hatchback was ahead of its time, even back in 2006, and its futuristic exterior has been imitated by several automakers over the years. Consider a pre-owned Honda Civic for your next vehicle.
The base engine is a surprisingly peppy 1.8-liter four-cylinder with 140 horsepower, which delivers an impressive 26 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. This seemingly modest engine performs well and isn’t afraid of acceleration. If you want to get more vroom out of your car, opt for the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and you’ll get 197 horsepower, along with a six-speed manual gearbox.
A review by The Car Connection found that the Honda Civic provided responsive steering and exceptional handling, thanks to its finely tuned suspension. The Civic performed well in safety tests earning top “good” ratings from the sticklers at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, who also named the car a “Top Safety Pick”. This Honda comes standard with anti-lock brakes, as well as driver’s side and side curtain airbags.
