Photos and Images of the Honda Civic Interior

The previous Honda Civic was spacious, but its cabin has dated rapidly since its launch in 2017. Thankfully, the brand new Honda Civic is a significant improvement.

Although the dashboard is arguably sitll simple, that's not a bad thing as it looks modern and elegant thanks in large to the silver hexagonal latticework running its width, and covering the air vents.

There’s climate controls instead of the hybrid dial and touchscreen system that featured before. That makes it much easier to use, they are also excellent to use with the knurled dials making a lovely little click as you adjust the temperature, playing into the feeling this is a more premium car than before.

The gearshift selector is also the perfect height to use as a wrist-rest when you’re operating them, which is no accident.

The driver’s display is great, however it would be great if Honda fitted the fully digital setup offered in Japan, instead Australians get a setup that sees the pairing of an analogue speedo with a 7.0-inch screen that essentially mimics an analogue rev counter with trip computer functions inside it.

The seats are comfortable and ideal for long distance trips and the driving position is excellent – you can get down nice and low, and the leather-trimmed steering wheel comes straight out from the dashboard rather than on an awkward angle.

Rear legroom has never been a Civic problem, and the longer wheelbase on the 2023 model means that’s still the case. You’ll fit adults behind adults witout issue and headroom is decent given the sloping roofline. The inclusion of rear air vents is fantastic, as is the fold-down central armrest, although you don’t get USB ports back there. Instead, there’s a blanking panel.


Photos and Images of the Honda Civic Exterior

It has an elegant new exterior design for starters, and an interior that banishes the overwrought look of the current car in favour of clean, simple lines.


Ownership Suitability

Who is the Honda Civic good for?

Perfect for a buyer that is looking for a car with all the features you could ask for. It's expensive, but it's definitely a case of getting what you pay for.

Cost of Ownership

What is the running, servicing and ownership costs of buying a Honda Civic?

Honda Civic Safety Rating

ANCAP Safety Rating Australia

The new Honda Civic has yet to be assessed by ANCAP, but its Euro NCAP counterpart awarded hybrid models five stars.

The Civic received an adult occupant protection rating of 89 per cent, a child occupant protection rating of 87 per cent, a vulnerable road user protection rating of 82 per cent, and a safety assist rating of 83 per cent.

Standard safety equipment on all models includes:

  • Autonomous emergency braking
  • Blind-spot monitoring
  • Lane-departure warning
  • Lane-keep assist
  • Lane-centring
  • Rear cross-traffic alert
  • Traffic Jam Assist
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Driver attention monitoring
  • Front, front-side, front knee and full-length curtain airbags
  • Reversing camera

The e:HEV LX and Type R gain traffic sign recognition, an intelligent speed limiter and front and rear parking sensors, while the e:HEV LX uniquely has rear side and front centre airbags.

Honda Civic Options

Options list for the Honda Civic

There are no options except for the colour.

Honda Civic Warranty

What is the warranty period and kilometre limit for the Honda Civic?

The 2023 Honda Civic is backed by a five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty. Honda also offers five years of capped-price servicing, with intervals of 12 months or 10,000km.

Each service is capped at $199.

Honda Civic Infotainment

What infotainment do you get within the range?

The new Honda Civic has a new 9.0-inch display (the biggest fitted to a Honda in Australia) running new in-house software, and it’s a massive leap forward.

The reversing camera is sharp and bright, unlike the foggy unit from the last car. Over-the-air updates mean the system can be updated throughout its life, too.

It’s a shame Honda has gone with USB-A ports rather than the faster, more modern USB-C ports rolling out elsewhere on its new Civic – or one of each, as is becoming common.

Honda Civic Boot Space

How much luggage or cargo capacity and boot space is there in the Honda Civic?

The 2023 Honda Civic VTi-LX has 449L of boot space (45L of this under the boot floor), which grows to 814L when the rear seats are folded away (measured to the window) or 1212L (measured to the roof).

The e:HEV LX has 409L of boot space (5L of this under the boot floor) and 814L of space with the rear seats dropped (measured to the window) or 1187L (measured to the roof).

The Type R has 410L of luggage space, expanding with the rear seats down to904L(measured to the window) or1212L(measured to the roof).

Under the boot floor on each model is a tyre repair kit.
