Comfort & Quality

The 2008 Honda Civic Coupe stays true to form with quality materials and a relatively high level of comfort.

Cars.com declares, "Nothing in its class has materials that are as nice to the touch, nor do any feel as solid as the Civic's [sic] do." Praising the comfortable front seats as having an abundance of back support, they note, however, that the seat's "short bottoms aren't as strong on thigh support. Seat cushioning is adequate, but a little more might be welcome." Motor Trend points out the “supportive seats.”

For its class, the 2008 Honda Civic Coupe delivers ample comfort and space for both driver and passenger.

However, the rear seat of Honda’s 2008 Civic Coupe doesn’t fare as well. ConsumerGuide Automotive remarks, “The coupe's tiny, hard-to-access rear seat is best left to toddlers.” Kelley Blue Book, on the other hand, finds the Civic comfortable throughout, noting that "Whether you're in the driver's seat or one of the Civic's other seating positions, the 2008 Honda Civic is a perfectly enjoyable way to travel."

Also be aware that the 2008 Honda Civic Coupe is remarkable for what you don't hear or feel, says Kelley Blue Book: "the ride is smooth and quiet, while cornering and acceleration are easy and nearly effortless. The whole experience is more in line with what you'd expect from a bigger or pricier vehicle...The fit, finish and design found inside the Civic are first-rate." Cars.com, however, believes “The cloth Honda uses has a strange feel; it's almost too fuzzy.”

Overall, the comfort and quality of the 2008 Honda Civic Coupe are exceptional among the cars of its class reviewed by TheCarConnection.com. Edmunds notes that the Civic "continues to be one of the best small cars in terms of room, interior storage and refinement. Comfortable, smartly designed and available in a wide array of configurations, the 2008 Honda Civic sets the bar for the small car segment."
