Launched in 1973, the Civic was Honda’s first truly successful car. Designed as one model that could be sold cheaply and reliably across the world, the first Civic featured an usual layout for the time: a two-box hatchback body mounted on a front-engine, front-wheel drive chassis.
Why did Honda choose the name Civic?
According to Dictionary.com civic means "of or relating to a citizen, a city, citizenship or civil affairs". And in Honda's words, the first generation Civic incorporated the company's desire to make "a car for all people, a car for the world".
