2009 Honda Civic DX-VPReview
Appearance:

Overall:

Honda Still Has My Loyalty — Owing a 95 Honda Civic DX the 09 DX-VP is a step up. DX-VP includes ABS, Power Windows, and AC which is critical to AZ residents. The design is sporty and its got more interrior room. The only down that I can find is that power is lower and fuel consumption is increased when A/C is on but is expected due to the engine size. If you are looking for an economy well price car the Honda Civic is it.

Pros: Interrior room, ABS

Cons: Power reduced and gas mileage reduce while A/C is on

Surprised — Great car. Surprisingly fast off the line,and gets fantastic mileage with good ride, handling and comfort. Solid and well-thought out. 4 wheel discs, heated leather, great climate control. Wasn't looking for a Civic, but was I surprised! AND, its a Hybrid!

Pros: See above

Cons: There is a learning curve for great mileage; takes a little getting used to, but not difficult.

Awesome Car For The Price — I like the car a lot, only problem being a really stiff ride for my taste. Its really big inside considering the dash is virtually non-existent in terms of "in your face" kind of styling. I think for hte price it is well worth it, and a bargain for a car like itself in its class. It has a lot of potential for so many more upgrades. After the warranty is up, turbo will be calling its name (V-Tec isnt enough for me)

Pros: Power, styling

Cons: Front wheel drive, not awd

Civic Nation — This is pretty good car for daily driving, however i do sometimes feel severely limited by the low front end. Thankfully the back end is a little higher so i can just reverse into certain areas if worse comes to worse. I definetly love the performance on this car, you honestly cant tell at all when you're speeding, and its definetly got looks. The 2009's stand out from all other gen civic cuz of the front end looking much more aggressive.

Pros: fuel efficiency, performance

Cons: low ride height can be annoying SOMEtimes

Epic Car And Epic Price — Performance is epic and this car has an amazing fun factor. The i-VTEC engine is very responsive and just makes this car amazing. Even though its FWD the limited slip diff, the lowered suspension make this car's handling a dream. Cost of ownership is very good because the first major service is at 100k. Have had some issues with my si like the strut and speakers, but I still love that thing very much

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Performance, Cost of Ownership, Fun Factor, Practical

Cons: mechanical issue like new strut within a year...and couple minor cosmetic stuff

Power Ranked 2009 Toyota Corolla LE worse.
"The Honda has 8 more horsepower than the corolla. It also has better fuel efficiency. The fifth gear also allows the Honda to preform better at highway speeds. Even though the corolla has a quicker 0-60 time."
Handling Ranked 2009 Toyota Corolla LE better.
"Tighter wheelbase, And better power steering. However, the corolla has significantly more body roll."
Looks/Style Ranked 2009 Toyota Corolla LE better.
"Because the civic just looks old, every attempt Honda took to make the civic more aggressive only made it look more 2006. "
Front Seats Ranked 2009 Toyota Corolla LE better.
"The corollas seats are physically bigger than those of the civic. However the corollas seats are hollow on the back side, while making up for the potentially lost legroom caused by the back seat cushion, it shows lack of refinement. Toyota also uses zippers on the upholstery of their lower end sedans. "
Back Seats Ranked 2009 Toyota Corolla LE better.
"The backseats of the corolla have better build quality, and they are more plush. However the leg room is smaller as a result. "
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2009 Toyota Corolla LE better.
"The corolla has a deeper and wider trunk. The loading height is much shorter with a larger opening. Toyota also placed storage trays along the sides of the trunk, which allow for fragile items such as a wine bottle, or a carton of eggs to be held with ease. "
Family Car Ranked 2009 Toyota Corolla LE better.
"While having a higher safety rating, the civic contains more airbags. But the corolla comes standard with heated mirrors and fully automatic head lights and easier to use child seat anchors. "
Value Ranked 2009 Toyota Corolla LE worse.
"The civic in higher trims comes with far superior technology, from climate control to navigation systems. "
Would Buy Ranked 2009 Toyota Corolla LE better.
"The overall experience is better, note that the corolla offers nothing to block out road noise or engine buzz. Often times the radio is overtaken at highway speeds. But the corolla has far superior build quality, cloth, space, and functionality. "
