Civic in the Market

What the 2012 Civic hasn't done is vault its competitors to exceed them in any respect, and full redesigns are an automaker's best opportunity to do so. Unlike the new Volkswagen Jetta, which we believe has slipped in terms of both interior quality and its driving experience, the Civic remains a very good car. The question is whether it will stay competitive in the coming years as other models evolve. Impressive recent redesigns and intros — including two from domestic brands, no less — are sure to steal more business than ever from the Civic. With its reputation and historically epic reliability, though, it's likely to hold its perch at or near the top of the sales charts. If a woefully outdated Corolla can do it, the Civic should be fine at least for a few more years.
