Though this segment seems to be in the blurred spot but still retains the bigger dimensions, which is a step away from mid-sized sedans. When roads are cluttered by half-hearted 1.0 or 1.5 liters engines, the Honda Civic soldiers on with the venerable 1.6 to 1.8-liter powertrains. Honda is the default choice in this compact car segment, which is only a step away from 2.0-liter powertrains.
