4. Honda Civic – 36.2 Inches
The 2013 Civic is Honda’s mulligan, a do-over, a fresh start. The brand screwed things up with the 2012 model, cheapening its interior and ruthlessly eradicating any excitement the way scientists wiped out smallpox. Automotive media roundly criticized the car, which was not up to the company’s typically high standards. To right this wrong and save face Honda embarked on a crash course (no pun intended) to improve their perennial best-seller.
The 2013 Civic is the company’s mea culpa. It builds on what the previous car did well and fixes its notable faults. Space wasn’t necessarily one of the its issues. Riders are treated to the same 36.2 inches of rear-seat legroom.
In other dimensions, the Civic’s trunk is a little on the small side at 12.5 cubic feet, but frontal space is completely competitive at an even 42 inches.
