2012 Honda Civic Video

The Civic is all-new for 2012 and now includes a high-efficiency trim level, the 2012 Honda Civic HF. While the sedan gets better gas mileage and is relatively simple to use, there’s a lot of cost-cutting in the interior, according to Cars.com Executive Editor Joe Wiesenfelder. Honda also removed other pleasantries that owners might have taken for granted previously.

The main problem that I see for the back seat is the low visibility arising from the high belt line. When Joe was sitting in the back seat in the video, it was obvious that his eyes were actually above the level of the window.

All of the cars in this segment including the Elantra and the Focus seem to suffer this styling problem.

This is obviously a matter of taste but I really find this to be a problem.


Not a winner...
not a loser...IMHO.
I'm indifferent to the 2012 Civic line, but I speak for myself.
