    Default Ride height of Civic reborn 2007+ and Civic vti 2006

    Hi
    I wanted to ask about the ride height of both the civics as mentioned in the subject of this thread. Actually i m planning on buying a new car and thinking about Reborn, but i've heard its ride height is too low and since i live in chakwal and have to drive frequently to rawalpindi through Chakwal road which is quite bumpy, so what do u say would it be a nice option or ITS TIRE GONNA TOUCH THE BODY EVERY NOW AND THEN????
    My friend told me that vti's ride height is pretty much better than reborn and for this road it would a better option!!!

    Well if you ask me, honestly it's more of an illusion, the ride height difference is there but it's VERY minimal, the 8th Gen Civic LOOKS lower than it actually is, it's the design.

    I'm not exactly saying it's not low, it is but it's not low enough that the tires grind with the fenders, that won't happen.

    The 7th gen Civic will be a better option but if I were you, I'd just buy the 8th gen and be a bit more careful on the roads, I've been to chakwal road in my 88 Accord (which is lower than 8th gen civic) and I hardly faced any problems, put the steering to good use

    thanx rohaan!!!
    i think suspension also matters...theres a difference in 88 accord and 8th gen civic, which might be the reason that people advised me to do some research on this before buying it and regretting later on!!!
    but ur comment was a big help

    The Civic 8th gen suspension is stiff, and I'm not saying this in a negative aspect, stiff suspension will prove to be a better performer on rough roads, it's a fact that's misunderstood here

    for bad roads/ rural area driving ill recommend u buy a Corolla as its more suitable for such terrains. ill never take my civic in such road condtions as it'll be quite uncomfortable. Corolla all the way. n remember if u stick to factory specs ,less the suspension fails its impossible that the wheels will ever touch the body!!! ground clearance is much better in a corolla. Good roads+fun to drive+less fuel economy+more road grip n cornering=Civic
    Bad Roads+less fun+better fuel econo+cheap parts n aval+less stability on high speed= Corolla

    you win some, you lose some!! you can't have them all!!! see your preferences n then decide! why not to rent out civic and corolla for some days and see how both drive and how it would feel, the drives of both and comfort etc etc. i would buy a corolla if i were you!
