Today’s Honda Civic has come a long way from its 1970s roots. What was once a subcompact option for decades is now a sophisticated, smart and sensible choice for families that offers plenty of space on the inside and delivers where it counts on the outside. As such, it’s no wonder then that the latest 2018 model was recognized as the best small car by Kelley Blue Book (KBB). According to the Chicago Tribune, KBB’s “Best Buy” awards are designed to “assist shoppers torn with indecision,” the organizations executive publisher told the newspaper.

According to the KBB review Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE , the Civic has been on an upward trajectory for years now. Of the current generation that was rolled out in 2016, KBB said, “No compact car was roomier, tech-savvier and more feature-filled than the newest Civic, a fact that remains as true today as it was then.” The 2018 Civic saw recognition as a “rare car” that pulled off being “fun to drive but comfortable, safe but exciting, reasonably priced but well-equipped, powerful but fuel efficient.” For gearheads, the Civic still delivers where it counts: a 158 horsepower, 4-cylinder engine with a 1.5-liter turbo-charged option for those who want 174 horses up front. Additional hallmarks noted by KBB reviewers was “one of the best continuously variable automatic transmissions in the industry” as well as “firm” and “responsive” braking.

Of course, plenty of consumers are just as interested in what’s on the inside of the 2018 Civic. Some aspects noted in the award-winning review include supportive seats both up front and in the back for long drives as well as USB and Bluetooth connectivity for phones. In a late 2017 press release, Honda notes that these new models again offer “a high level of safety and driver-assistive technology with the available Honda Sensing™ suite.” On the tech front, this means collision warning and mitigation braking, lane-keep assist as well as adaptive cruise control. With the 1.5-liter turbocharged power plant, KBB found that owners could expect to get a combined 36 mpg between highway and around-town driving. Backed by “rock solid reliability” and a low entry fee of around $20,000, KBB summarized the award-winning 2018 Civic as a go-to for both resale value and reliability.
