    Default 8th generation Civic fan and owner club

    the 2006 generation Honda split the model into two different platforms, one primarily for the home market and North America and the other designed for the European market using a simpler rear suspension from the Honda Fit and more aggressive styling. As of 2006, a total of 16.5 million Civics had been sold worldwide, with 7.3 million of them in the United States.[5] Although the North American and the home market model differ externally, they are mechanically identical. The European model is available as a three and five-door hatchback while the Japanese/North American model is available as either sedan or coupe. Both Si and Type-R trim levels continue although the Japanese and European Type-R while sharing the same size engine are mechanically different. In the US an improved version of the Si tuned by Honda tuner Mugen is offered featuring cosmetic alterations and changes to the suspension and exhaust system. The Acura version of the Civic not only received the design change, but also saw a new nameplate, changing from the Acura EL to the Acura CSX. In Japan starting March 2006, the Honda dealership sales channels called Honda Primo, Verno, and Clio were disbanded, and combined into one retail dealership called Honda Cars.

    I haven't used swift so can't say much but 8th gen is more on the grippy side then comfort. Imo better than city

    No idea about swift. However, I would say all Honda cards are city cars and prolong use on tooti phooti roads will cause suspension issues. Also Civic 8th gen is not good if there are road cuts, you can feel that it hit something hard.

    no the suspension is really rough and tough in 8gen i have taken it to many extremes(dont expect suv extremes :p) and it havent given any issue in suspension till now but no its not much comfortable on those roads and when it hits a pothole you just hate the responce because there is almost no responce from the suspension as if there are no shocks in the car...its suspension and clutch both come in performance category rather than comfort

    __Corolla's suspension has only one plus point: its comfortable for the front occupants. The rear passengers are too concerned with the hard seat to notice the soft suspension.

    __In other areas i.e. on centre-feel, turn in, feed back, and stability, Reborn is miles ahead. The 9th gen Civic tried to follow Corolla's lead, so it has worse handling than Reborn.

    __As for durability, my dad's 7th gen Civic VTi regularly hits potholes on GT road. Even then, it has only needed routine maintenance; it still handles pretty well. Just give it proper routine maintenance, and the Reborn's (or any Civic's) suspension is just as durable as the Corolla's.
    _ 22 km/l from '03 VTi automatic, with plenty of room for improvement

    the rear comfort of corolls is still better than reborns :p
    and no doubt there is no comparison with reborn in terms of stability and all as i said its more performance oriented
    about durability i was talking about with no maintaimance at all and i meant uneven roads hitting pot holes here and then taking it to villages...it wasnt comfortable but its durable ...people say civics suspension is not durable in these kind of conditions but they are wrong
