2013 Honda Civic Test Drive

In my personal opinion, even though they have done quite a bit to improve the interior, it is just merely lipstick on a pig. The fake stitching and the chrome around the air vents are nice, but it still suffers from the funny looking, mismatched shape configuration. As far as the exterior is concerned, the LX model I tested (Which is basically a previous generation DX-G) screams cheap in every way. The previous generation is much better in presenting the base model. It still drives like a good ol' Honda, which is good, but all in all, I am not impressed. The 8th Civic is still a league better.
And compared to the Honda Accord (below), which is just amazing, lol. Yes, I bring my own radar detector for test drives

Agreed, I took out a Touring edition for a test drive not too far back. Biggest concern was the interior look, better than 2012 but still needs a lot more work. However, for a one year mid-model change this isn't too shabby. Still lacks that 'Civic' feel to it though.
I agree the interior material isn't bad, but I think it is just the way it is implemented.
