Following the 2006 redesign which produced a sleeker, more rakish body style, more standard equipment, and revised powertrains and components throughout, the Honda Civic enters the 2008 model year relatively unchanged. In addition to the EX is the new EX-L, which adds leather seating surfaces to an already impressive list of equipment. Also, the Si sedan increases its level of performance with the Mugen package, which includes a track-tuned suspension, 18-inch alloys, a revised exhaust, and race-inspired body enhancements.

Honda has built a longstanding reputation with the Civic, positioning it as one of the sportiest and most fun-to-drive small cars. The 2008 Civic emphasizes styling and safety at a very competitive price.
