Man! Call me old, outdated, or whatever, but that $27,000 price tag for a small car like this is pretty steep! Is that an error? That is WRX, Toybaru, Jeep Renegade Trailhawk, & related territory. I remember when a fully loaded Civic would go for no more than $17k, but I'm talking late 90's here. Inflation sure has gone way up! ('o' )

Nope, Anime Gee, that's the correct price! This is, of course, the top-of-the-line model.

Good review you're right that is a bright green. Enjoy the video review format

The new Civic looks like it's trying too hard. It is also continuing to grow.

This "looks like a hatchback but is actually a sedan/coupe with a small trunk lid" design is really going to annoy some owners when they buy an item that could fit in the trunk, but they can't get it in because the trunk lid is too small!
