Cars.com's 2013 Honda Civic Photo Gallery

8555106070_0f47657eb9

It may not be as exciting a car to photograph as our long-term 2013 Subaru BRZ, but that doesn’t mean we're not documenting our recently purchased 2013 Honda Civic. The base LX model we purchased has wheel covers that most of our editors find wretched, but we all agree we made the right choice on the Crimson Pearl paint. We just wonder how the tan interior will look after a year of testing.

The full gallery is below.

The ugly wheel covers really ruin the look of an otherwise good looking car. The trim to get (the one i bought) is the EX which comes with the much better looking wheels and sunroof. I thought the silver or black exterior with black or gray interior looked really sharp (I bought the black)After 2000 miles I'm averaging about 30mpg and am really impressed with the sharper handling and better ride compared to the 2012. I compared the civic with the 2013 Focus SE with 201A package with leather and alloys, no sunroof (best quote $20,250 after rebates factored in)and 2013 Mazda 3 I touring with auto trans, no sunroof(best quote $19650). I paid $19700 for the Civic EX including destination + tax, doc fee and registration (21455.50 out the door)I found the handling on the Focus and 3 to be about equal and slightly better than the Civic. The Focus had the edge in interior although the Civic was better than the Mazda 3. However, the Civic's proven and reliable powertrain and better crash test scores combined with more interior space,back-up camera and sunroof sealed the deal and made it the best overall choice over the Focus and Mazda 3. Anyone looking at these cars should do their homework in advance of buying to determine what a fair price to pay is. The EX is the way to go on the Civic and worth the extra bucks although I would stay away from the EX-L and Navigation equipped trims as the price really starts to get jacked up into an area where you might consider a Manual Golf TDI which was out of my price range, but I must admit despite VW reliability concerns, absolutely blew away the Focus, Mazda 3 and the Civic in driving dynamics, fuel economy and interior quality. Heck, I thought The TDI's cloth interior was superior to the leather in the Focus.

I think it's a shame that to get 60-40 split seating, one must upgrade to the EX. I think it's rather unnecessary.
