The Honda Civic was the Little Compact Car Beloved of the 70s as well as 80s until competition started to increase through Toyota's, Mazda's and also a plethora of Hyundai's and Fords !! The Civic initially came on the scene in 1973. It was affordable, rated high for safety and enticed a great deal of frugally minded customers. Competitors isn't constantly bad; it kept Honda refining and resculpting the Civic over all these years.
The majority of the Civic versions fall in a $18 - $30,000 price point.
