Honda Civic VTi 2017 review: snapshot

The Civic VTi is the entry point to both the hatch and sedan range.

The entry point to both the hatch and sedan range, the Civic VTi ($22,390) arrives with 16-inch steel wheels, fabric seats and single-zone climate control, but there are some nice and premium-feeling flourishes, like LED DRLs, a 7.0-inch touchscreen that's now Apple CarPlay and Android Auto-equipped and a second colour screen in the driver's binnacle for your trip information.

It gets the lesser of two engines, though, a 1.8-litre petrol engine good for 104kW at 6,500rpm and 174Nm at 4,300rpm, that's paired with a CVT automatic transmission, feeding its power to the front wheels.

Safety is a little lacking on the cheapest Civic, with six airbags, a reversing camera and the usual suite of traction and stability systems the only highlights of a sparse safety list.
