Honda Civic Australia

The Honda Civic is one of the world's best known and most loved cars, with more than 19 million sold its launch in its home country of Japan in 1972.

It's been a staple on Australian roads since its arrival here in 1973, too, with more than 300,000 finding homes locally. Now up to its tenth generation, the petrol-powered small front-wheel drive has fallen out of favour with Aussie buyers, but a bold new design language and clever packaging could change all that. The Civic range starts off at the $22,390 Civic VTi and tops off with the $51,990 Civic Type R and is offered in hatch and sedan configurations – and for the first time in its 44-year history, without a manual gearbox.

Honda Civic Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Honda Civic here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Honda Civic 2002: Why does it only drive without the petrol cap on?

    I think what’s happening when you open the fuel cap, Frank, is not a release of pressure, but rather a release of vacuum. As your car uses petrol, the level in the tank gets lower. If the tank can’t `breathe’, allowing air to fill that space in the tank, a vacuum is created. Eventually, the vacuum becomes so powerful that the car’s fuel pump can no longer drag fuel from the tank to the engine and the car stalls.

    When you remove the fuel cap, hey presto, the vacuum is released and the fuel pump can do its thing once more. In modern cars, this is often caused by the charcoal canister (a part of the pollution-control equipment) becoming clogged and not allowing air back into the fuel tank. I’ve actually seen cases so bad that the vacuum has actually collapsed the fuel tank under the car (must have been a powerful fuel pump).

    Driving around with no fuel cap on is both dangerous and illegal (it renders those pollution controls useless because it allows fuel to evaporate into the atmosphere) so the solution is to find out where the blockage is and replace the relevant parts. Like I said, I’d start with the charcoal canister in the engine bay. It could even be that dust or dirt is blocking one of the rubber hoses that link the pollution gear systems. It might seem like a big problem, but from the symptoms you’ve listed, I think it’ll be an easy fix.

  • Honda Civic 2018: Does this car have Satellite Navigation?

    Honda’s solution to navigation was to equip its lower-spec Civics of this period with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto which allowed you to use the navigation apps on your smartphone to interface with the car’s info screen. If you wanted stand-alone, factory satellite navigation, you needed to spend up a bit bigger and buy the VTi-LX version of the Civic which had a Garmin system that also featured live traffic updates.

  • What sedan is the best value?

    Hyundai has the Elantra, Honda the Civic, and Toyota the Camry. All can be bought as sedans and all fall within your budget. For mine the Camry represents the best value for the money.

Honda Civic Interior

The Honda Civic's interior isn't as daring as its exterior, which is probably a good thing. As these images show, the layered dashboard has a heavy slant, while a large multi-function displays bisects the instrument cluster. While there's some nice soft trim, there's also plenty of hard stuff, and the leather isn't of the highest quality.

Honda Civic Fuel Consumption

The Honda Civic is available in a number of variants and body types that are powered by ULP, PULP and Hyb/ULP fuel type(s). It has an estimated fuel consumption starting from 6.4L/100km for Hatchback /ULP for the latest year the model was manufactured.
