When one of our editors took some friends out in the recently redesigned 2016 Honda Civic test car, the first remark made was: "Wait, this is a Civic?" We could see that situation playing out in showrooms all across the country as car shoppers find themselves dazzled by the new Civic’s generous interior dimensions, impressive list of available equipment and truly fantastic interior. Of course, the latest Civic also offers the car’s usual benefits, such as reasonable pricing, several engine and body style choices, and notorious durability (you may have heard about an early recall with the 2.0-liter powerplant, but we’d avoid that engine in favor of the model’s available 1.5-liter turbocharged motor). While the previous model was a disappointment, the 2016 Honda Civic is a home run, and we strongly believe it’s the best compact car on sale today. All these reasons made it a clear choice for our list of 10 Must Test Drive vehicles of 2016.
