We have a rebirth 2014 and a city 2010 at home. Based on their use, and if you're not going for a 2019 civic X, I would suggest you go for a SUPER CLEAN AND LOW MILEAGE FULL OPTION rebirth. Coming from an older city, you WILL definitely feel the difference. I love the rebirth. I love the city too but rebirth is clearly better. Rebirth is very underated.
I suggested a new city because new is new... First ownership is something else. Choose what feels comfortable.
