1979 Honda Civic Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 2 reviews
This year, 1979, marks the last of the first generation Honda Civics. The year brought only a few changes to the Civic or CVCC, mostly just an increase in horsepower to 55.
People are still driving it — even now. In fact, last year, someone commented that his '79 Honda Civic was the most "functional and utilitarian vehicle" he'd ever owned and he compared it to a workhorse, calling it "a faithful, sturdy, always capable, and sure-footed little vehicle."
All drivers of the Honda Civic love its gas efficiency, its reliability, and its amazing ability to keep on going, though alternator replacements, new engines, and more.
