In addition, it is distinguished by more generous equipment at similar levels of assembly (and the hatchback price is higher), a semi-independent beam in the rear instead of an independent suspension in a three-volume rear. The assets of the five-door Civic are well-developed ergonomics, a bold “space-borne” interior design, a comfortable roomy interior, a light and sharp steering wheel. But if the hatchback of the previous generation was known as a driver's car (at the cost of excessive stiffness of the rear suspension), then the new character is softer and more tolerant. As a result, Civic added in a comfortable component, but not so assembled in the corners.
Honda Civic 5D
The initial version of the Lifestyle equipment is equipped with eight airbags (including two curtains), ABS with a brake force distribution system, directional stability control, braking and lifting assistance, tire pressure monitoring, climate control, four power windows, heated front seats, a music center with USB / AUX inputs, MP3 support, steering wheel controls, six-inch i-MID information display, central locking, immobilizer, electrically adjustable and heated exterior mirrors, LED daytime running lights, rear window wiper, 16-inch alloy wheels.
Is it possible with the same budget to rely on the purchase of a well-packed car, moreover, with an "automatic"? Yes, if you pick up an expensive complete set of the car a class lower. Another option is to find second-hand from a more prestigious segment on the “secondary”.
The way to downgrade (new)
Ford Fiesta 5-door 1.4 automatic transmission, Titanium with add. options
Excellent handling is the hallmark of Ford cars, and the Fiesta is no exception. Nimble and maneuverable, she confidently keeps herself in the city stream. The hatchback suspension is clamped in a European way, but its energy intensity is at a height. There are no complaints about the ergonomics of the driver's seat (plus - a wide range of adjustments, good visibility), except that not everyone will like the cross-section of the steering wheel and tides on the steering wheel.

Mazda2 1.5 automatic transmission, Sport
Everything with her: a bright and stylish appearance, temperamental character, a well-tuned chassis, a sharp steering wheel, sensitive brakes. Mazda2 interior, however, is a bit fresh, the picture is revived by a white saucer of a speedometer, a three-spoke steering wheel. The back seat for two is quite enough. The automatic machine, dear to the female heart, is in good agreement with the 1.5 engine, which eagerly revs up; the box responds to sharp escapades promptly and without delay.

Hyundai Solaris hatchback 1.6 automatic transmission, Dynamic with add. options
Solaris captivates with a “cocktail” of energetic design, a decent comfortable component, and good noise isolation. The high price of the top version of Dynamic is sweetened with premium generous accessories, including Bluetooth, a rear view camera, and a keyless “admission” to the cabin. It feels like the Solaris hatchback in motion is slightly more responsive than the brother sedan, and visibility back in the five-door is better. The 1.6 engine is perky.

Seat Ibiza 1.4 robot. FR
The updated Ibiza, whose sales in Russia started in the spring, is emphasized sports. Spectacular edges and tightly “taut” surfaces give the car traits of confidence and strength. The FR version stands for Formula Racing and features stiffer suspension settings, a 16-inch "cast", an original body kit. Confident dynamics are provided by the 1.4 TSI turbo engine and the dexterous DSG gearbox.

2009 Toyota Avensis 1.8 CVT
Available for this amount, the latest generation Avensis, in addition to enveloping comfort (traditional for all generations of the model), offers quite an interesting handling.
