From the early '70s to today, take a look at the iconic Honda Civic's history.

The Honda Civic is one of the most successful small cars of all time. It retained its title as the best-selling car in the U.S. in 2017, with more than 377,000 examples sold. And already it’s on par to post another successful year in 2018.
