Good question. I know it goes by different names in different parts of the world. In India, it's called the Honda City and costs almost $30k USD.

According to Webster’s dictionary, the word “civic” means “of or relating to a citizen, a city, citizenship or civil affairs.” And so it was that the Honda Civic made its world debut in 1972, a year of great advancement in motorization in Japan. As its name suggests, the Civic incorporated Honda’s wish to create “a car for all people, a car for the world.” Ever since, the Civic has embodied Honda’s challenging spirit, always ahead of the pack and always delivering new levels of value. Now, 33 years since its launch, the Civic is sold in approximately 160 nations and regions worldwide. The Civic is truly a car for the global citizen and continues to earn the support and love of people around the world.

HEY HEY HEY, Why you gotta pic on the DUBS?lol Last time I checked I did not see an entry level 4 cyl FWD from any of the euro, import, or domestic classes that can beat the NEW GTI in any category, that cost in the same 20-22k range, other than the SRT-4. I am talking about in the US, not over seas.lol

Just thought I would stick up for us DUBBERS.lol

CVCC has nothing to do with the name CIVIC. you had Civics and CVCC Civics back in the 70s

CVCC is a motor design element ... like VTEC, or even HEMI (kinda)

it stands for : Compound Vortex Controlled Combustion

There's the answer right there... what more are you looking for?

CADster is 100% correct.

CVCC has nothing at all to do with the name Civic, although the CVCC was first implemented in 1972 into the Civic model line. It was a system that provided a cleaner and more efficient combustion that didn't even require the use of catalytic convertors or unleaded fuel to meet the emissions requirements in those days.

Ballade, Civic Ferio (4dr japanese) are some other names I have come across.
