Motor Trend’s car-of-the-year, Honda’s retooled 2006-model Civic sedan’s admirable traits such as its segment topping base 140-hp 4-cylinder 1.8L 16-valve standard engine, standard anti-lock brakes and AC and arguably the best manual stickshift in the compact-car group, make it the most admired car.
Those under whelmed by having to shift gears should try Civic’s optional automatic transmission. That’s a sporty shifter, too, and should be evaluated by reviewers along with a manual transmission.
Affordability is another Civic tradition over these past 20 years, and the 2006 is no exception, with the tested EX sedan sticker at $18,260 (DX at $14,560 and LX at $16,510) excluding destination charge.
