Honda Motors has established the Lifestyle Awards to honor vehicles that are best suited for the lifestyle needs of today's car buyers. It has chosen the 2007 Honda Civic equipped with high quality as the Best New car for First-Time Drivers. Why choose Honda Civic? According to "Whether it's for someone just learning to drive or experienced drivers ready to purchase their first new car, the Honda Civic makes sense either way. Top crash-test scores should ease the minds of parents with a new driver in the house, and the Civic is available as either a coupe or sedan to suit different tastes. Roomy and comfortable inside, the conventional versions are thrifty performers, but there's also a hybrid for those looking for even better gas mileage."
