Lineup

The Civic is built in two body styles, sedan and coupe. Both come in DX, LX, EX and EX-L trim levels, all with different price tags and features. Compare the features and prices here, or look at the 2008 Civic side-by-side with the 2007 version here. There's also a hybrid version of the sedan, which gets 40/45 mpg city/highway. A high-performance Si model is available in both sedan and coupe body styles. (I reviewed the Si last year.)

For this review, I tested a 2008 Civic EX-L with navigation.
