With the introduction of the two-door and three-door models in 1972, Honda was proud to win a variety of awards, a preview of things to come. A "Car of the Year Japan," the Civic also made a splash overseas as a Europe "Car of the Year" and "1974 Car of the Year." With a second generation following in 1979, Honda debuted a more powerful transmission and continued to win awards across the world.

In its third generation, Honda took a new approach, adding space inside the vehicle, while reducing room for mechanisms. Adding a four-door and five-door model to the lineup, the Civic took innovation to the next level. With more awards and impressed drivers, the Civic was breaking records worldwide. In 1987, the fourth generation Civic was born, adding unparalleled performance to an already powerful vehicle.
