IMPORTANT: Read the information at the bottom of this page before going ahead with any car purchase.

Honda is well known for making reliable, sensible cars. What it’s less known for is offering large discounts. However, we’ve found savings of more than £3,000 on the Civic online.

The Honda Civic will definitely appeal to your head with its decent practicality, safe handling and economical engines. And this model should appeal to your heart too, thanks to its funky styling. Honda don’t often offer discounts as large as many other companies, but we’ve sniffed out savings of more than £3,000 on the Civic 1.6 diesel.

The Civic makes a great family car thanks to its large boot and clever rear seats, which fold flat to extend the boot and the seat base flips up so you can stand taller loads behind the front seats. Combine this practicality with an economical diesel engine and the Civic is well worth considering.

Hot Car Deal hunters please note:

  • The car brokers and deals featured are not vetted, endorsed or recommended by Which?. Always check the specifics of the deal so you know exactly what you are getting and who is supplying the car. Make sure all aspects of the deal are confirmed in writing before committing to buy.
  • Not all brokers deal in UK sourced vehicles, and this may have an impact on standard equipment and warranty levels.
  • The term ‘pre-reg’ or ‘pre-registered’ refers to vehicles that are brand new but already registered with the DVLA. This means that you will appear as the second owner on the V5 registration document. 
  • Beware of unscrupulous brokers who tell you they will have to retain the V5 registration document for a period of time after your purchase of the car. Vehicles sold this way may be cheap, but there are legal implications, including the risk that you the buyer could be committing a criminal offence when you drive the car, so they should be avoided.
