1980 Honda Civic Overview

The second generation of Honda Civics has arrived.

The 1980 Honda Civic brings a new design, ushering in the new generation. The wheelbase has increased in both the hatchback and wagon to 88.6 inches and 91.3 inches, respectively. The two-door sedan, where people had to really fold themselves up to get into the back seat, has been discontinued.

Another change in this generation is that all Civic engines make use of the CVCC design. The base model has 1,355 cc and the upper scale model has about 67 hp produced by a 1,488 cc — "1500" — engine.

In addition, the '80 Honda Civic come with a choice of three transmissions: 4-speed manual is standard, but you can opt up to t 5-speed manual or their consistent 2-speed automatic.

There are still owners of the 1980 Civic. They are still driving it; they still love its reliability and gas economy and most hope their little Civic never dies.
