    Default Civic 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th Gen Comparison Thread

    Lets compare the different generations of Civic.

    Despite a few newer models up, many of us still fancy the 5th generation over the 6th, or even 7th generation Civics. This is the thread to shower your inputs based upon experience with any of the Civics you've driven, or owned.

    It starts with a few comments posted in a civic for sale thread which I'll be importing, we can continue from there onwards.

    These are some of the major reasons behind my love for the 7th gen.

    Pretty accurate analysis I see here.

    IMHO in the end it just narrows down to personal likes and dislikes - some might find it funny but I sold my 7th gen only for one reason - I wanted a sixth gen.

    I find it a car which is more complete as a sedan.

    The interior, yes, seems very prehistoric - but way well thought than any of the counterparts.

    The exterior - it comes with a full length bonnet as compared to the bird like Tiny beaks of the latter models. Rear end is built by designers for car lovers and not by mass producers for the masses.

    The ride height which enhances the drive/ride pleasure.

    The meter is dim. The brakes aren't at par with the latter models. The interior is dull black. And yes, it's 10 years old. But owning one and driving it, you don't seem to care about all those downsides.

    Whoever has owned one, and the shifted to the newer, few years down the line you'll look back and think - yeah, that was the best.
    A Post-Wh0re is a user who's only aim in life is to increase his post count. He/she gets off by receiving likes and mentions, and considers his post count a medal on his skinny chest. A post-Wh0re is the human equivalent of Chihuahua..bickering pointlessly, effortlessly, permanently.

    well, i`ve experience all the gen.s mentioned but had the 5th n 7th gen for a short time.
    the best one imo was the 6t gen. great value for money(when it was new) n far better than other cars in that range n class
    8th gen is also good(very good i must say) n is ahead of its time(in pk i mean )
    though i own one ri` now bt crave for another 6th gen!
    bt now everyone is after the 95 nowadays though i dont like its interior but most of the modded ones we see r those!

    What i see here is the defaming to 8th Generation just because it has a very high price tag.

    Let me tell you all, 8th generation was introduced as a leap towards the advance standards by introduction of Airbags, EBD, Pre-tension seat belts, Drive by wire, Stock cruise control unit, 1.8 i-VTEC engine which has the HIGHEST power output and fuel consumbtion, spacecraft like cockpit etc. Now what else is left?

    7th and 6th generation were sure beautful cars of their time. But it donnot means 8th generation is fail or something.

    When we brought our new 6th generation VTi Automatic in 2000, we had to face dissappointment from honda just after an year when in 2001 the 7th generation popped in from no where. It was due to the launching of new corolla (XLi shape one) which almost failed the civic 6th generation in its time due its luxuary interior, lexus type details (according to brocure) and huge body which made it look like a full fledge sedan. Im saying this because we were told this from honda dealership by its MD.

    But today things surely have changed but it doesnt mean that one should start degrading its sucessors just cuz of high price tag.

    I keep a 8th generation civic i never ever faced axle problem? If a batch of axle defect cars are produced then it doesnt mean the model is flop or something. As for 6th generation, comeon buddy, only few thousand units were ever sold in Pakistan and just for an year and a half. After that 7th generation was lauched, where as Civic 8th generation is being built since May 2006 to date. Means more units and relatively more chance of defected pieces to be found.
    As for the looks of 6th generation and 8th generation, its entirely based upon personal liking. People were not blind when they got mad just after having the glimpse of the front of Civic 8th generation back in 2006 and 2007 and still the front looks of 8th generation are unmatched.
