Really unsure

If you like having your bum on the road then take the Civic! :oops:
But, if you are of advancing years, the the HR-V is certainly easy to get in and out of. :ugeek:

Very much my thoughts and the same consideration applies to anyone using the rear seat.

In addition, digging deeper into the specs I see that the Civic Sport Line uses Honda's 1 litre turbo engine which gives good mpg in the official tests but real-life tests show it can be quite thirsty - the turbo needs to work quite hard given the size of engine + size of vehicle. The HR-V's 1.5 non-turbo engine doesn't give sporty performance but provides adequate power and is also economical for the size of the vehicle (look for the HR-V Sport if you want more oomph). Another of the HR-V's strengths is the versatile load space including the Magic Seats (missing from the new generation Civic) and it's a slightly shorter vehicle. The only disadvantage of the HR-V is that the infotainment system is older and somewhat limited in its capabilities.

I would suggest you look through the Honda used cars list https://usedcars.honda.co.uk/en/honda/hr-v for an ex-demonstrator, preferably with the 5 year service plan included.
