One Week with the All-New Honda Civic...

Monday,30 Oct 2017

 

LINGS HONDA recently ran a competition for our Facebook followers, giving them the chance to win an entire week with a brand-new Honda Civic. It was with great delight we sent off lucky winners Lisa and Jason Moores for their week long Civic experience and they were kind enough to keep us updated with all their adventures as they went away on holiday - sending us this wonderful review of the car and their experiences with it!

So if you don't mind we'll just hand over to Lisa and Jason...

We cant thank you enough for your hospitality and the opportunity to drive the Competition Car.

We write this with great pleasure but also sadness and heavy heart that we had to hand it back. From the moment we picked the car up it screamed luxury - from the heated leather seats (front and back, much to the surprise of mother-in-law when we switched them on without telling her), to the automatic headlight dip/full beam (which has to be one of the best inventions ever for long journeys at night) the brilliant rear view parking camera, and the wireless mobile phone charger, this car is a dream.

The tech list on the car is huge and there is always something to play with and tailor to you as the driver. The Sat Nav is easy especially with the road views and junctions which can be set up to appear below the speedo to enable the driver not to keep looking at the centre of the car. The DAB is A+ especially picking up a station called FUN tunes for Kids; who knew?

While the shape and design is sporty the ride is sublime, comfortable and very quiet; driving it on the motorway is a piece of cake, particularly with the automatic model we had. The kick down is instant and important at times when needed but also the paddle shift gears on the steering column is even quicker. One flick and the car drops a gear and the Turbo is heard and felt; amazing and fun.

We found there was plenty of room in the boot for all our luggage and the pull-across parcel shelf means that the space is more flexible. We also found the back seats were more spacious than our current civics and with plenty of room for two adults and a child seat.

During our week with the car we did several hundred miles of motorway driving, and on the return the same distance on single carriageway A roads. The car handled superbly and our 6 year old slept most of the way in the back, which I guess shows how smooth and quiet the ride is. The journey home took just under 6 hours and the seats were very extremely comfortable and the adjustable lumbar support is really useful for anybody with a bad back (I speak from experience).

Finally we have to mention the orange line pack, it makes this car stand out from the rest; nothing on the road like it and meant there was no chance of losing it in the car park. We had admiring glances from everywhere (the car, not us) and our honest opinion is that it really is a gorgeous looking car.

We were very sad to hand it back and we would advise anybody thinking of buying one of these to go for it, test drive it you will love it - you won't be disappointed. We would also like to say a huge thank you to Lings Honda for giving us the chance to use and review this car - we will be back!

Kindest Regards, Lisa and Jason Moores
