Honda Civic history: from the 70s to 2018

Honda Civic 1975 vs Honda Civic 1995 vs Honda Civic 2018: what's changed?

It’s hard to believe how much the Honda Civic has changed since the 1970s. It’s now in its tenth generation, and looks much more like a spaceship, than a cute little car.

I've been to Spain to drive the 1st, 5th and 10th generation Honda Civics, and see what’s different.

The first one was made in 1975 (1st gen: 1972-1979), the same year the Vietnam war ended, Microsoft was created, and Jaws was on at the cinema.

Compare that to 2018, when Avengers: Infinity War came out, everyone tried to get rid of plastic straws, and the UK got stuck in the biggest heatwave… since the 70s.
