The History of the Honda Civic

Of course, it wasn’t always around, and it was only introduced with its first production year in 1972 and quickly became a popular option because of Honda’s history of reliability and the overall affordability of the car. As time passed, the Civic grew to be more and more popular, seeming to offer quite a few different things for different drivers.
